Personally I don't like wearing glasses but I'm not saying glasses look bad on other people or anything, I'm just saying I don't feel confident with myself when I put glasses on. Unless they're over the age of 50, I always get the impression that people that wear glasses all the time are at the bott...

My fear of dogs barking has disappeared, although there are other sudden loud sounds I still fear. I haven't had obsessive interests since I was about 24, not do I feel the need for them any more, which is a relief because I don't like my mind being taken over by random people I fixated on and made ...

I don't have an engineer's mind at all. I work as a cleaner at a bus garage so lots of engineers there, they are all 100% NT, and when they're talking about the work it's like they're talking a different language. I don't even know how to use our washing-machine, I keep forgetting how to use it. :lo...

I'm a rightist in politics, although I'm a labour supporter and apparently labour are leftists. But I think a lot of poor people vote labour, and I'm poor.

I usually get accused of emotionally manipulating people like a narcissist, which not only upsets me but also frightens me. Usually if a narcissist is emotionally manipulating people to get them to feel sorry for them or whatever by expressing emotions involving self-pity, the narcissist isn't actua...

Well the only norm I do conform to is having an iPhone and being on it all the time. That's the only thing that makes me feel normal.

I wish I were strictly into fashion, make-up and celebrities. It's just the effort I back away from. I wish I had someone that picks the most fashionable outfits for me each day and puts on all my make-up for me and styles my hair so that I look stunning. Instead I'm this dull, greasy-haired tomboy,...

Sounds like me when I used to live at home and before I went on Sertraline. I'd have these outbursts that I took out on my mum. I would have a thought in my head and wait for my mum to come home from work to yell at her about it and sometimes a huge row would start up. I didn't want to do this, and ...

Some of my older family members are still openly racist, transphobic and homophobic. They sometimes treat animals cruelly. It was how they were raised. They are still decent people overall. They don't become monsters because of their views, but they do get shunned by society and get labelled monste...

I like the nanobots curing autism. Obviously nobody will be forced to be cured but I certainly will want to be. Even if it's just the social performance part, where I can make friends with my NT peers.

As I said in another thread, autistic people are basically taught to follow the social rules very logically, and in most contexts social rules are not logical and are best learnt from mimicking good role models, not from being lectured precise rules where 2+2 always equals 4. I've often been told by...

Due to a combination of mania and meltdown, I attacked my friends and insulted them badly in a long tirade, one friend especially bad. They had not done anything to deserve it. I messaged my doctor about my problems, but they want me to call them. I slept all day today and missed the phone call. Fu...

I think it's through ignorance with me. I impulsively post something political here without getting my facts right first, and not really meaning it with malicious intent ("oh I want to say this because I enjoy hurting people"). Maybe I just need to be educated rather than listen to the vie...
