This. Works like a charm 95% of the time for me, and even more so when I'm singing along (it's like a stim for me).

There is no level on my diagnosis (because my diagnosis was before the DSM-V came out), and I think these "levels" are a load of crap. Autistics are autistics, nothing more and nothing less. True some of us need more support than others, and that's the beauty of our diversity. Just the med...

Yes, I want a girlfriend. No, I don't have one, nor have I ever dated before in my 23 years on this planet. I feel a little lonely despite having a few close friends.

60s to 70s F Some people call that cool, others warm. For me, it's my Goldilocks zone. Totally agree! I feel cold if it is below ~65 Fahrenheit and hot if it is above ~75.

As an Autistic about to graduate from university, I totally feel your pain. My social life at university was next-to-nonexistent until halfway through my second year, and even then it was limited until my third, when I co-founded a student club for those with disabilities with two other students (no...

Bon Jovi
Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers
REO Speedwagon
Eric Clapton (including Cream and Derek & the Dominoes)
Bruce Springsteen
Bryan Adams

I may be young but I much prefer Rock (from any era) to today's pop and rap "music".

I really enjoy singing, it's kinda like a stim for me. Calms me when I'm upset, especially when I'm singing along to my favorite artists.
