I am autistic and have DID. I do not have statistics on this or anything, but over the years I think I have only run into two other people with DID who were also on the spectrum.... found them on trauma based forum type places. I think there are a few people on this forum who have either DID or a di...

I'm not sure if I am understanding correctly or not. Are you asking specifically about one thing that keeps coming up over and over? If yes, I would say that even if it seems a 'small' thing, it clearly is not. Small is subjective. What might seem small to some people, might be a huge thing for anot...

I managed to go to an induction ceremony for my spouse. It was held in a crowded, chaotic place and I managed to hold it together and no be a complete wreck by the time I left. I only needed two hours of decompress time as well, so victory is totally mine. I also upped the intensity of my morning wo...

I have been obsessed with people on and off for... most of my life, I guess. I mean, I remember doing that as a child as well as a grown person. As an adult (no internet when I was a kid and all that) I have searched people. I'm not sure if it's an autism thing for me or not. I don't know if I'll ev...

I was told as a child I had a boy voice as well. I certainly had a deep voice and still do to this day. I have noticed people have a surprised reaction when they hear me speak for the first time... it probably would not be so odd if I were not a small framed thing. Heh heh. Contrast, you know. I als...

To do lists don't much work for me... even though I get a weird sense of satisfaction from crossing things off lists. I think I find the to do list too overwhelming. Over the last month or two now I have been slowly building a routine by adding a new thing or two on the the previous week and so on. ...

That is delightful. While I am not a person who can speak any language beyond English, I completely tip my hat to anyone who goes out and learns another one (or more). Kudos to you.

I think I likely bore other people, but I don't think I am boring. I'm rarely bored anyhow. I think I what it comes down to is I am different enough compared to others that what I might have to talk about is not going to interest them and what they might often want to say does not interest me. *shru...

I have been known to spend large amounts of time in my head replaying/tweaking past events. For me, sometimes I will tweak/adjust a situation over and over until it plays out in a way I find satisfactory. Other times I just seem to loop a memory and play it out until I have some kind of aha moment w...

I don't remember dreams all that often anymore... maybe one or two every other month or so. But I used to have reoccurring dreams a lot as a teen. One of the most common ones was this alien abduction type dream that was rather pleasant. I'd always be in the same room they kept me in, had the same al...

I understand eating to live and not living to eat. I'm right there with you on that one. I get really confused when people do things like eat when they are sad or bored. It would never occur to me to be sitting around bored and think, "Hm... know what would be fun now? A sandwich." Really?...

I haven't wanted to cut my hair before out of anger, but I do cut it myself often enough. I don't really like having other people touch my hair, so I do what I can on my own. That said, a few months ago I did get myself a haircut that makes me have to get help from others... so I kinda screwed mysel...

I have been told multiple times the music I listen to is not normal. I'm not good at knowing what is or is not bizarre where music is concerned... the stuff I listen to is normal to me.

Total preference for my dad. My mother is an addict and a complete nutcase. My dad, on the other hand, is a decent person and has a good sense of humor.

This is one of those things that is best to work out with a therapist, if possible for you. Intrusive thoughts can and will present differently in different people. For me, part of my intrusive thoughts is a complete understanding that the unwanted thoughts are not only completely insane, but they c...
