It took me years to learn then years again before I actually drove. When I finally did get a car and started driving myself to work I would feel really sick for days leading up to it. I drive fine now, I am a careful driver. I hate night time lights, driving with oncoming headlights really distracts...

I never know what to do with my hands. I remember noticing in like 4th or 5th grade that I didn't swing my arms when I walked or ran. I had to teach myself to do this consciously. Many other actions and postures did not come naturally to me. Nowadays I just hold my own hands or arms sometimes so th...

Do you mean when we're standing and walking about in the street, or do you mean when we're talking to people and using hand expressions? I am OK when talking to people, but when I'm standing or walking, I never know what to do with my hands. I keep one hand on the strap of my handbag and the other ...

I am the same, I usually take mine to school late to avoid the gathering in the playground but I know I need to stop doing this. I go for the stand and stare anywhere but at the parents option but would actually really like to be in a little crowd chatting about something. When I do go into a crowde...

My nt friends who are still single seem to be obsessed with finding a man with a good job, money, good looks and good at sex.

I am happily married, none of those things were important to me.

a person in my head, the same one for years at a time. Not in a wierd way, I just have conversations with them or act out scenarios, like having normal conversations that would never happen in real life. I have normal conversations in my head with the same person all day every day though.

I haven't let anyone apart from my husband and children touch me since I was very young. I get the tingling if someone does touch me, it can last for hours, I didn't realise until reading this thread that that wasn't normal though. When someone does touch me while speaking I tingle or freeze, often ...

Mixture of panic and happiness at the start. I enjoyed pregnancy, much easier than looking after an actual person! For a couple of weeks after I felt panicky and couldn't think ahead beyond the minute, not that anyone knew though. For about 3 months I guess I wasn't as happy as I thought I was. I wa...
