Executive functioning, specifically organizing, prioritizing and planning. My skills in these areas are so weak that I have yet to successfully hold a job for more than a year or two before getting burned out or fired. Work tasks make me so confused, and I can't figure out how everyone else seems to just "know" what they're supposed to be doing.

Sensory issues are a massive barrier for me as well; I spend most of my time alone in my room, only going out for my appointments, because the world is too painful to deal with.

Being independent. Processing. Communicating. It's hard to settle on just one. It's all like a lump package.

At this stage of life I would say anxiety and depression or some branch off for those things.

Growing up it's hard to pin point just one thing. Other's ignorance and inability to help they way I needed was big as that has led to hampering me NOW also.

One obstacle that still haunts me today is friendship.

I am bad at knowing when I am (or am not) annoying someone. Sometimes I think I am friends with someone, but then I come to realize that the feeling wasn't mutual. Other times I get fearful that people I know or work with don't like me or are just tolerating me, so I don't ask them to hang out even though I want to.

I would like to get better at both perceiving friendship and trusting my perception.

I would guess social awkwardness. I struggled majorly to get a romantic realtionship when i was single partly cuz of that & it's also interfered with my ability to find work. If I wasn't as awkward I would of had more friends which might of helped me with finding a girlfriend or networking to find employment. I also would of done better in job interviews. I do have other disabilities that really limit me with employment including a couple physical 1s but there are jobs I CAN do & I believe I would of had a much better shot at getting those jobs if I wasn't as awkward. Being employed more could of helped me get a girlfriend cuz I might of met one through work or just having the job would of made me seem more appealing instead of me coming off as a loser for staying home collecting disability money for doing nutin. I also would of made better impressions with women if I wasn't as awkward.

Actually understimulation. I want to be stimulated a lot, challenged to do complex things. It leads to travelling a lot, and to hunger for information.

And autism stigma. For the rest I feel that I am very mildly autistic, in a way that I don't experience disadvantige from it.

Weak visual spatial skills (tested to be in the 10th percentile). Having very little idea of my own strength.

The fact that I don't have a filter and I can be very honest with people.

Sensory issues, specifically noise. I get irritated by weird things (spoons against glassware, people coughing, clearing throats, sighing, chewing loudly, etc., screaming kids, jangling keys) and it makes me anxious and very irritable. I'm not a mean person, but when I'm overstimulated I act mean.
