After putting more thought to this connections thread .. had thought this through better.. it really depends on the type of connection. As far as associations go . Now am preferring more casual than intertwining . But it is not how my mind originally programmed itself . Cause all people were humans...

Humiliating. On my 16th birthday, a girl at school ran up, grabbed me, kissed me on the lips, then ran away. I was so shocked I went into what I now see as a shutdown. (Of course, at the time I had no idea what a shutdown or autism was.) My bizarre reaction was well known to the whole school by the...

I like “connections” that aren’t symbiotic and all-encompassing. I don’t like the idea of being totally entwined by another person. I like “ways out,” so to speak. I’m very independent as well. My connections to other people tend to be peripheral, rather than direct. I agree with everything you wro...

People saying they are open-minded, supportive, etc but then attacking others with different viewpoints than their own.

When I am really overwhelmed-overstimulated-anxious or any combination, I will do it. I am really sensitive to sensory input and so I get so worked up with so much energy in my body that masturbation is the only thing that gets it out. Sometimes I'm so overwhelmed that I have to do more than once. S...

I quit the next day, started another job a week later, and added another job last week. Thanks for the words and support. I have been in and out of depression ever since, but I'm ok. That's good to hear. Seems like a lot of changes and keep strong and trying to find your path. Good luck! Thanks, I ...

He was incredibly open to everyone about his ASD offering himself up to talk or offer advice about working with and supporting folks on the spectrum. We met, we talked, it was nice.

Yes, I can relate too. This forum has helped take the edge of the lonely feelings for me, but doesn't mean they are all gone. There are many good people here, and many who can relate, if not connect to you, even if it is from a distance. I second what the wise Jakki said, and am sending you a hug a...

I don't believe someone could know me wholly besides myself...

Sorry to hear that you feel like that. Perhaps its a case of finding the right kind of connections - a rather obvious thing to say and easier to say than do of course. When I was younger I think that I felt lonely at times. For me this was more about not knowing myself and imagining that connection...
