I'm fairly good with eye contact and understanding humour and stuff, but bad with emotional responses. Also find it difficult to interject or say no so end up signing up for stuff I don't want to.

'Til this day I still play this fucking videogame. I'm failing uni because of how easy it is to forget things like time, sleep, food, and responsibility.
>>25640414 >Also find it difficult to interject or say no so end up signing up for stuff I don't want to. OP here. I sign up for charity shit all the time because I just can't say no to them. I'm afraid they'll get mad at me or disappointed in me and I don't know how to deal with that.
I got a diagnosis just to get the autismbux. eye contact is weird for me because I can do it but I need to take a split second break every couple seconds, like I look away then back again instantly. or is that normal? I don't even think I am an aspie really.
>tfw dad tries to pretend you don't have ASD >he never told me until I was 17, by accident >get checked again when I turned 18 >what do you know, I still have it >tries to pretend I still don't have it >whenever my sister asks why I do certain things or something and I explain it's a part of my disorder he gets pissed >he has brainwashed her into thinking I don't have it either or I "slightly have it"
I'm sure he likes the fucking autismbux I get from it though.
>charity collectors come knocking at the door >was playing dark souls in my room at the time >in Sen's Fortress >stood at the bonfire >they ask to come in >too scared to say no >they sit down in the living room >they start talking about the charity >every few seconds you'd hear a noise >HHHHRNHHHHHR *EXPLOSION* >the giant in Sen's would throw the bomb >one of them asks what the noise was >"o..oh.it's j-just a game.."
Fortunately I was 1 year too young for them to legally collect from me so they had to leave. Man that shit was embarrassing.
>>25641136 I started in 2005 too, I was 8 and my brother got me playing. I played RS beside him while he raided, and one day he asked if I wanted to try WoW. So for my bday he bought me an account off of some playerauction site, with full raiding gear. I played it until MoP and quit. Now Im back to playing Runescape.
>tfw I may have been an aspie all my life but parents never told me I have a lot of the symptoms, including stims, eye contact = painful, sensitive to touch, socially inept (can never pick up cues), fidgeting, repetitive behavior, etc.
Whenever I used to talk about psychology or seeing a psychiatrist they would change the subject oddly. I want to get diagnosed as it'd explain a lot of my life and make me feel a little better, but I'm too poor.
>>25640414 >>25641603 >>25642041 Man, you guys are pathetic. I just tell them to fuck off. Aspie here btw. You can't live in a city with as many beggars as where I live and be a charitable person to all of them. Learned that real quick when I moved here. It helps to think that many of them found themselves in their situation by their own decisions.
>>25642027 He's doing the right thing, to be honest. I never let my AS define me because the rest of the world doesn't care how special a snowflake I am. I'd do the same thing to my own children if I ever have any.
>>25644687 No, I don't hear voices or have hallucinations. That's why I got diagnosed wrong first few times.
First it was social anxiety, then social phobia, then OCD but only anti psychotic helped (30mg abilify). I got sent to the same psychiatrist my mother went to and he said I have very similar disease to hers and she has schizophrenia so that's why I got diagnosed with it.
>>25644790 I probably have psychotic depression because I have symptoms of schizophrenia coupled with cripping depression that feels like I'm dying of aids. I'm on risperidone and zoloft right now for "mood disorder NOS"
Don't know if autism or something else, but I have trouble relating to most people in an emotional way and I understand social cues but I find them obnoxious and mildly offensive/a burden half the time. My life would be a million times better if paying attention to social cues and signaling wasn't so damn important.
>>25640058 i used to be an aspie then i had an epiphany a few months ago. some guy was trying to sell me a book on reincarnation in the street i was just like muttering i don't want it and he kept talking. then i just got mad looked him and told him to stop talking, i don't want your stupid book, when you die you die reincarnation is a lie to make people feel better. all he said was ok and walked felt epic to be so edgy after that i was more confident if your an aspie just punch someone in the street see what happens
>>25644928 >I understand social cues but I find them obnoxious THIS! Women are the worst about it as well. One time a woman was talking to me and she was upset so she made a face while talking. I asked her why she made the face and she said because she's upset. I told her I knew she was upset, so she didn't have to make that face anymore. She was confused.
Fucking normies, man. By now I understand that them making faces is involuntary, but I still ask why they do it sometimes to fuck with their self-awareness.
>>25645006 Sometimes I get thoughts like this, or ones where I just go "I wonder what would happen if I punched him in the face?" or "I wonder what would happen if I stabbed her?" Sometimes I just plan out elaborate "screw everyone here" speeches and imagine giving them out when a group of people is irritating me Sometimes I feel dangerously close to carrying them out. I never do of course, but I feel like I might one day, and it scares me a bit
>>25640414 >My friend was talking about the welfare system >how women are basically being paid to pop out babies >I imagine this in my head >with like the noises and everything >I go into a fit of uncontrollable laughter >she just stares at me with this look of disbelief and disappointment >i notice and feel bad, but i still cant stop laughing I can say I know this feel
>>25645606 i never understood this poo in the shower meme sure peeing is fine. but do you guys just not eat fibre at all? When i take a shit its like 20 seconds. not worth the effort of doing it in the shower and possibly having to blast it with the water
Oh it takes 5 seconds for me too but I have this OCD thing where i dont want my feet to touch the dirty floor so instead of waiting until i can get socks on to poop i just poop in the shower and waffle stomp it down the drain.
>cycling home after buying my autism lunch (high end pot noodles and mtn dew) >hear my name being called >see cute grill >thought that she called my name >say hi to her >she looks at me weirdly >she said nothing and all i heard was an illusion >after about a second i fucking go full autism speed away >parents ask me why im out of breath The pot noodles were pretty good, they actually contained bits of meat in them that didnt taste like synthetic shit.
>doing exam >giant ass classroom, probably can hold 200 people >turn around and watch on the opposite diagonal >literally 9/10 you never spoke to but always keeps seeing initiate eyes contact and starts smiling >instatly turning around thinking he saw somebody else >we were in 6 in that classroom
>>25646062 Sometimes. i really had to put effort into how much i moved or swayed my arms when i was a kid. I had motor problems which made me look like a tard and also i broke a lot of shit and was generally clumsy. I also have to put a lot of effort into typing without smashing a tonne of keys in the process.
>>25640058 aspie here, >I don't have any friends now, I had in the past some few >I don't speak with groups of more than 2 people that I don't know >I pass the hours in front of a computer >21 years old & virgin
>>25640508 I don't do it because I couldn't see eyes, let alone a discern the features of a face, until second grade because my vision was complete shit. I'm really good with vocal tone and word choice though.
>>25646492 get the fuck out underage Not even because of "da rules" but this place will permanently fuck you over if you are on here at this age. I started coming here when I was 13. When i was maybe salvageable. Now look at me.
>>25640058 I have ADD but I want to know if I'm actually a sperg.
The problem is I also know that being diagnosed as a sperg would benefit me in various minor ways, so I almost want the diagnosis and so I tell myself I'm probably a sperg, so if I got tested or anything I might subconsciously game the test affecting my ability to learn the truth.
I'm more creative/lateral thinking than some of the more extreme autism/aspergers traits, but I also recognize that a lot of it is sonic-OC tier with some powerlevel control. In social skills, etc, I'm much more spergy but I've managed to make it less apparent.
I just don't know. I don't even know if I want to know, if told it's unlikely by a professional I'd probably be disappointed, but if diagnosed I'd question whether it was genuine. I wouldn't even know how to ask them to test me.
