I am most severe when it comes to socializing. Everything else is rather mild. I don't have five that are most severe.

1) Socializing with non-family, especially in settings that have alot of people, are uncomfortable and unpredictable (a party, picnic, meeting...ect.)
2) Adapting to big changes. Sometimes even small ones if they're unpleasant and/or I don't have warning to prepare for them.
3) Using tone, face expression and eye contact to communicate.
4) Behaving in a way, and having interests that are uncommon or even inappropriate for my age.
5) Trusting people.

I was going to include sensory issues, but those five I decided were more important.

1) Lack of connection to others
2) Routine
3) Emotional Immaturity
4) Sensory Issues
5) Special Interests

When I was younger special interests would have been higher up. But, now that I work and have an apt. to clean, I don't have as much time.
