Sometimes I have the urge to just away in place, or it feels right to do a little dance. Other times when I'm happy and I get really excited, I like to shake my arms and clap my hands a lot.
Sometimes I want to be touched, and other times when the idea of being touched makes me recoil. Sometimes textures that I was fine with one day can be bad the next.
Sometimes I get the urge to waddle or curl up. I have to move my arms when speaking. There's really just a lot of little things that I do that I notice other people not doing, or have even asked me "Why are you doing that?" Honestly, cause I like it. I feel nice when I do it :)

I just basically started suppressing all of that.

Do not supress. I spent a lifetime surpressing things like that and when in my late 30's I thought that I had conquored them all (Took me that long!) I ended up having what I believe to be either severe burnouts or breakdowns. I believe they were because I had no outward way of dealing with my emotions through severe mental effort and willpower, and this was partly the cause. The other part was having to deal with a lot if other stuff at the time.


Do not surpress. Just be who you are meant to be with all your little quirks, and if anyone does not like it that is their problem, not yours!
