I've been freezing quite alot when there's too many people around me, i don't know why.. I don't know how. And i always have to fight myself to keep moving. My legs will sometimes freeze, my mind goes numb. Shopping is extremely difficult and i try and avoid the same people twice as i worry i'll annoy them. Which is painful for me when i really need food, or i need to go do something such as visit the post office to get a package. I sometimes outright refuse to go out as i worry that i have all eyes on me alot. When the reality is. That's far from it. If i have a friend or a family member with me i believe that they'll somehow "Magically" draw all the attention away from me. I refuse to go out to events alone, though occasionally i'll go to a Gaming Cafe, and join in on the fun. I feel comfortable there as everyone is just as anti-social as me. And there's another person there with Aspergers too who i like to talk about non-sense and share interests with.
Heck, yesterday i decided to write on a piece of paper and stick it on the mirror with 17 things to keep me sane.
Things like "Don't worry about the future" and "Friends come and go, but hold onto those who are close" my favorite was "Don't mess with your hair" i was inspired by a song a friend showed me called "Everybodies free to wear Sunscreen" by Baz Luhrmann. There's some good advice there. So, now. Every morning i get up and i have that piece of paper to look at. Hopefully this will keep me happy. And it's nice to giggle at it every now and again. And by sharing this i hope i can spread my way of coping to someone else.
Just gotta keep busy i suppose.(?)
