flitterheart asked: My sensory issues are really bad right now. I grew my hair out to my shoulders but now it feels like it's itching the back of my neck so I'm going to have to get it cut off again. I'm just feeling bummed out about this and I wanted to know if I was alone in this or not. (I have aspergers, but I have touch and sight sensory problems that come and go.)
oh no no you’re definitely not alone there. I have the exact same problem
stephani-d asked: My brother's on the spectrum and when he was first diagnosed (He was 8, I was 10) and he'd do something not socially acceptable (cutting in line or something) I'd ask my mom "Is that him, or is that the aspergers?" ... I just wanted to apologize, thanks to blogs like this I've realized it's impossible to separate the two, and rude to try...
vbfdoee asked: do you have any advice on how to notice when you're infodumping or are just generally intruding on the conversation
I’ve noticed if other people look around uncomfortably or give no kind of feedback, nodding, interjections, etc., that that’s when it’s happening.
If anyone has any other advice, feel free to reply to this ask or tell vbfdoee!
splicerthedicer asked: Thing I hate most about going to any doctor/psychiatrist with my mother: Talking about anything and having the doctor completely ignore me, turn to my mother and say "That's the Autism."
UUUUUGH I HATE THAT TOO
sproodles asked: Do you know any ways to make yourself STOP obsessing about something? I mean, it's fun and all, but I have things I need to get done and my brain won't let me :/
The only way I’ve found is by distracting myself with something else equally interesting and by positive reinforcement. Tiny, personal rewards when you catch yourself doing something not related to the obsession or when you notice things are changing with it
plant-enzymes asked: Do you most of the time never feel like talking, and when you do have something to say, can never really articulate it into any words unless you have time to write it out (like this)?
acceptablegatsby asked: I'm really tired of being treated as more of diagnosis of autism than an actual person who has it.
I think we all are.
