I keep getting these weird feelings where I feel distress and have no impulse control. For example, I will start changing my online usernames constantly throughout the day, change my clothes or jewelry repeatedly. In the past, I have deleted online accounts or taken out a piercing on a whim and then regretted it, leading to a meltdown. Other times I cannot control my eating, and will stuff my face with everything in sight, or if I am feeling like this and have money on a gift card or in my wallet while out, I will compulsively spend it all on things I do not even like or need. I also will decide out of the blue to get a piercing or dye my hair a weird color. Or I will "drunk text" people inappropriate things without actually being drunk. In another version of this, I will rearrange my room over and over, taking things off of the furniture and making weird shrines. Many times, I will rearrange apps or icons on my screen or change my wallpaper or screensaver until I feel suicidal or about to lose my mind. I will have the urge to do something reckless. Is this aspie or do I have something else like bipolar?

I keep getting the urge to delete my tumblr account or all of my fanfic even though I love it and it's all I do and it would be a mistake. Please help...I'm fighting the urge to change my username. This happens every time I have an online account ever.

Sit down. Take ten deep breaths. Put on the TV. Post something outrageous on WrongPlanet (but not with curses).

It sounds like anxiety.

The only things that are Aspie is the definition of Asperger symptoms/diagnostic traits in DSM IV or ICD10. The rest is unique quirks each person have (even normal people) - or another, underlying diagnosis.

But to be specific, no - it's not Aspie. Probably something else. Like anxiety mentioned earlier.
