I don't think I've ever experienced autistic burnout myself, so I don't know the answer to your question, other than to say your suspicion seems correct.

I can't say I've done anything. Just recently my therapist said I should talk to random people I come across, like cashiers or waiting in line, but I shy away from it whenever the opportunity arises. Even when someone talks to me first, I shy away from answering and answer as briefly as possible. Bu...

That has not been my experience most of the time with the SSA and the DMV. I have no experience with the USVA. The DMV (Department of Motor Vehicles) in New Work was kind of nightmarish. They did have a person at the front to answer questions, but you had to know what questions to ask and they were ...

Would have been 90% here but it was nothing but clouds. There were no other noticeable effects either, like a noticeable dimness, or animals behaving differently, or a drop in temperature. Nothing. And I was outside for it.

I was in the area where the eclipse was to be 90%, which I consider pretty good. But it was very cloudy and I saw nothing at all. It wasn't even noticeably dimmer outside because the heavy clouds were already making it pretty dim. I had my eclipse glasses ready and everything. I was pretty disappoin...

The only video games I've ever played were Tetris, in the 90s, and Space Invaders, in the 80s. Neither one had any effect on my life.

Even though I dislike Facebook for various reasons, it's been very helpful in keeping me in touch with people, both locally and also people I knew in high school. It's also helped in remembering the names of people I don't know well so I can say hello to them if I run into them at an event. And spea...

I don't actively resent it, as I am not stewing about it, but yes, I look back and see that so many things were difficult for me, and I do resent it in a more abstract sort of way, I guess by looking at it more fatalistically. And I am only very mildly autistic. Still, it was enough to make things a...

That sounds like a very positive development. Often people can't bring themselves to admit that they did something wrong, so it's great that they have done that.

I think you would need to make yourself vulnerable in order to approach someone and show your interest. I think you would also have to accept the possibility that it might not go well, and even the awful possibility that someone might make a joke at your expense. But if you try, you might succeed.

Politics is a spectrum. That's where I'm in agreement with you. What I put in bold above is what I disagree with. I don't consider feminism as is practiced today to be good. I think feminism on the women's side and RedPill/MensRights/MGTOW on the men's side should be both tossed in the bin and star...

Can you just take yourself to a hospital directly rather than calling 911? Or is there some other way you can deal with a crisis, like calling your therapist or doctor? Some hospitals or care facilities are much better than others. Do you know which ones are good and where you would want to go in a ...

I get the idea but I'm rather stupid when it comes to see it happen for myself as I'm autistic and next to clueless and with the bad/ lack of experience in dating and relationships. I'm not so sure things will happen as I'm worried I will not be able to tell if someone is genuinely interested as th...

I'm sorry that it's not ideal, but I hope you can make the best of it and find some comfort and routine there. Best of luck to you.

I agree that caution is a good idea, and that meeting up in a public place is the safer option.

You can also suggest that you want to take it slow and only spend a couple of hours together on your first meetup, rather than the whole day.

And yes, your feelings are completely normal.
