 Forum: General Autism Discussion   Topic: Are you "noticeably autistic"?

Noticeable enough to be diagnosed, albeit later on in life as I lost my ability to cope with its symptoms. Likely not all that noticeable to most everyone else otherwise, but that will depend on the context and who I am interacting with. Eye contact can range from enjoyable to painful depending on w...

I associate people with colors. Person-color synesthesia. Never realized I had it and thought it was just normal until it was brought to my attention.

The cans were still there. :| I picked up the cans. That, along with several other things, is making me feel less guilty when they sometimes help me out, even if I pay them back for it all the same.

Conversely, being good looking can lead to people thinking negative things of you (not just with relationships). Discounting jealousy/envy. Say, if you're introverted, schizoid, autistic or whatever, people can think you're stuck-up, love yourself, and/or so on, which can lead to isolation and being...

What does a panic attack feel/look like for you? Fight or flight. Impending doom. Muscle tension. Sweating. Shaking hands. Sometimes detached from myself. Time slows down. 10/10 anxiety. They last for about 30 minutes or so. I get them daily, and have for around 20 years now. :| Initially thought t...

I don't care what people think of me, outside of those close to me. I had few men laugh at me for wearing a N95 mask back in March, 2020. (I didn't want to pass on what looked like SARS-CoV to my mother.) People still look at me now when out and wearing a N95. I have zero care, and it all doesn't ma...

Thankful for those holes in the walls that let some light through. Light staining the walls that beautiful pink as it passes through. Sometimes you luck out in a life of bad luck and can see that glimmer. That negative is always there, because life can make that one, but that positive of hope keeps ...

Not really. It could always be worse. But, just living, day-to-day, is hard enough for me. A struggle full of suffering, where holding on to the things that bring hope, make it easier, and are the only things that really keep me going. Not really woe is me, rather just reality, as I can be objective...

Kicked the littered cans on my side of the road and on my property across the road to the neighbors'. Their party, and the company one keeps keeps one company. I was nice and kicked them next to their bin. I do get annoyed by those that litter, and far more so when it comes to an area that's functio...

My mother is left-handed. I'm left-handed.

Never really think about it, as it's easy to adapt to most things. I kinda messed up my right hand, so I guess it's good that I'm left-handed, as some things I wasn't very good at with my right.

I've learnt to block out a lot of noise. Sorta grabbing it and throwing it into the background and focusing on other things. It's mostly a problem when trying to sleep, and that'll be speech, as I have the old habit of wondering what is being said. Helps with the bad tinnitus. Some noises can hurt m...

I tend to be the opposite of many with autism as I dislike heavy/constricting things around/on my torso. Maybe odd for autism. I like swimming underwater, though (outside of the dark depths, as that sets off the claustrophobia). I'm alright with being held, which will be odd when the constricting th...
