So at my school people think im autistic which is probably not true (i don't show symptoms but i'm semi doubting myself) and at my old school pople thought i was special needs because f the way i act. I really hate my school because of the students theyre soo immature some of the kids today were talking about whos the least likely to get pregnant and they all pointed a me which is probably true but its so weird how theyre talking about this. Like??? We're middleschoolers we should be talking about cartoons and anime but instead were taking about this :pale:

Hmm.

Probably not true, eh? :?

1. Self doubt is an internal symptom.

2. People at your old school thought you were special needs because of the way you act. ASD is marked by behavioural symptoms.

3. It's normal for middle schoolers to talk/gossip about sex and "who's most/least likely," to do whatever. You think middle schoolers should be talking about cartoons and anime, which is Possibly due to your own social maturity level being behind your peers so your interests are still very youthful vs. geared towards discussions of sex. People on the spectrum tend to have an emotional/social maturity of approximately 2/3rds their chronological age, so, if you are on the spectrum you may find that your interests & social capabilities are forever young compared to others your age.

Even from this one post, it is Possible that you are in fact on the spectrum and just don't know it or believe it yet. Not exactly uncommon amongst high functioning autistics. I had no idea during public school. Hell, even in business school after I did some rapid math in my head and impulsively spoke the solution to a time math problem before the rest of the class even realized how to solve the problem and a fellow student said "it must be some sort of autism.." - he was correct, but in the moment, even though he didn't mean it as an insult, just an observation.. I thought "F you, I'm not autistic you f****r. There's nothing wrong with me. Y'all are just slow at problem solving & math." Turns out he was bang on and I'm on the spectrum.

Anyways, some things to think about. You are Possibly on the spectrum and may benefit from seeking a diagnosis Or simply learning more about it yourself to figure things out. If you read this book you'll Know whether you are or aren't likely on the spectrum. It's incredibly well written and describes in detail what differences their are between neurotypicals and ASD and of some internal thought processes and things people on the spectrum do that others don't. If you read it and find there's a lot of strong matches to the text, then you'll know for yourself that you are likely on the spectrum and can then decide what else to learn or do about it: https://www.amazon.com/dp/1843106698?re ... 53QX0CV9X2
