It's one of those self stimulating calming ritual behaviors that help stave off a meltdown and keep one grounded in the midst of anxiety. I would have to s...

I just feel very weird and alien in other people's houses/apartments. I just can never feel comfortable in them. It's very rare that the house I live in gets visitors but when it does I don't interact with them much at all and after they've left I feel like they they were an intruder that's 'violat...

When you have a conversation with someone that knows you but you can't remember the face or the name.
You use quotes from movies for most of a conversation.
You take a math test with no sratch paper and get one wrong answer because you misread it.

I experience an increased sensitivity to touch, sound, and light. Touch - I am particularly sensitive to light contact and I can't wear certain fabrics or items of clothing.

I smoked cannabis to relieve the pain of my 4 blown discs. At the time when my ASD son got diabettes I had to cover th...
