I went through a bit of an autistic regression lately (I’m 28) due to a traumatic incident. But I never tried to act NT in my life.

And are you aware of it if it happens? I've been told that when I rock, pace, make my "odd" hand movements and have a stim toy with me, people stare at me. But I'm pretty much oblivious to it when it happens, until I make very, very fleeting eye contact with some people around me (I don't...

I detest hugs on the basis that it's close human contact, and a form of tactile stimulation. I don't do love anyway and I have severe sensory issues.

I only wear baggy tshirts and tracksuit trousers. I am female but I never dress female. I always felt exposed and naked in girly / skimpy clothing, and I cannot wear dresses, as feeling my thighs and legs together just feels wrong. I cannot wear most tight clothes, with exception to my weightliftin...

Are these gene labels? This sounds too arbitrary.

I would have my baby taken away straight away if I had one, as I would refuse to bond with it and I would not cope with caring for it. Changing nappies and bathing the baby would be impossible for me and I would be melting down constantly and then give the baby up for adoption ASAP.

My mum thinks autism is either very severe or very mild. I am moderate functioning. I need a lot of supervision but I am very intelligent. She can't see the continuum.

Can you use AAC/text-to-speech? It doesn't seem reasonable to refuse to let you read from a script, but if they insist you aren't allowed to write a script then AAC/text-to-speech should be the written equivalent of speaking on the spot.....I can't see how they could get away with refusing you even...

I've seen Human Rights abuses in NHS psychiatric wards. I've been in a medium secure unit before as well, that was a cesspit. However my last admission was actually a helpful experience, as the hospital was told improve your staff or we're closing you down. So they went through a massive reformatio...

I hated parkinsonism because it stopped me from exercising, which is extremely important for me. I told my psychiatrist that I am decreasing my dose and she agreed with that, so long as I would go on olanzapine too. My psychiatrist always asked my pharmacological opinion on my meds, although someti...

I only fully accepted my autism at age 19. Before I would self injure, hate myself and I had a few suicide attempts. Now I am 26 and I embrace the good aspects of my autism and try to ameliorate the hard parts. I'm not in harmony, but I understand myself better. My parents want me to be "norma...

I am dependent on my parents and support workers for even simple things like buying food and collecting prescriptions. But then I am preferred nonverbal and I have severe challenging behaviour. And a visual impairment that means I cannot cross the road safely and I cannot see individual items in a ...
