Mine is never gone. I’ve always got the susceptibility to crowds, social awkwardness. I can’t tune out distractions. That’s been constant for as long as I remember.
The brother of a friend has aspergers and ocd.
His nerves and rage are out of control.
His parents can’t handle him. They are afraid of him. Sometimes he has psychotic way of thinking
Biggest problem for me with crowds is navigating myself so I don’t bump into other people. It can be quite hard.
I absolutely cannot abide being touched by people I don’t know. Too much of it and I flip my lid.
In other news, grocery delivery is awesome.
I am suspected to have Aspergers but the testing here is so expensive.
I can’t even. I tried to ask but when my doctor mentioned the testing price, there was no way that my family could afford that.
I always take wrong cues from crowds and I have intense emotions that I can’t get out of. I was initially thought to have BPD but my therapist said I don’t have it. I don’t know, seems like there is no way for me to get diagnosed or get tested even.
Me too. I hate getting touched by people. It makes me “blow up”- can’t find better words but that’s how it is.
Neurotypicals will say we “melt down” or have “meltdowns”. In my case it’s having my fight or flight response activated, and I don’t flee from anything.
I used to have frequent meltdowns as a child but now as an adult I learned how to mask them. But there are some days that I can’t just handle the overwhelming sensations and just have a meltdown. I listen to calming music when I feel really upset.
