So, I am on Lexapro 10mg, and it's definetly been working to treat my social anxiety. The problem is, my "inner aspie" comes out lol, so because my social anxiety is less severe, my AS Symptoms worsen. Most of the time, when I was not on medication, I was so socially anxious that I would suppress the majority of my symptoms, and I would just come off as "nervous". Now that I'm on Lexapro, I really couldn't care about anything in public. Does anyone have any reccommendations whether or not I should continue taking this? Also, since I started on Lexapro, my sensory overload anxiety is much lesser too!

Also, is it weird that I am fine at interpreting others emotions and facial expressions? (Yes I am officially diagnosed) Also, I used to be sensitive to sound, but that's kind of died off now. Nowadays I hate certain sounds, particularly alarms. It'll ruin my day is I here a house alarm. (i'm still sensitive to sounds, just not as much anymore).

I'd enjoy it.

I'd probably wallow in my inner Aspie, at least for a while.

That will give you a chance to actually LEARN what behaviors need to change (or anyway which ones you think are worth changing).

Sounds like an ideal Aspie situation.

use baking soda its what people used before toothpaste came around
or dont even use toothpaste
I dont use it and I have never had a cavity, I really dont get the logic in rubbing an abrasive on your teeth twice a day for the rest of forever it seems like it would destroy your teeth over time which would make sense why dentist are so for it
