    Run like the wind. Or a river in spring. I have heard that story many times, unknown man asks random women on the street for their social media profiles. Nothing good ever came from it I think.

    Creepy. Just say you don't have one. Stay safe. 250,000 woman go missing in US.
    I am struggling at work and there is no one who can help me

    I feel like existing in a bubble like this hiding everything is the only way i can survive. But sometimes i feel like exploding

    Do you have access to a support like a psych or a doctor?
    AprilR

    I see a psych regularly but she is not a autism specialist and lately i feel misunderstood a lot. I am considering researching autism specialists but i doubt they even exist here
    The constant negativity at work is wearing me out.

    what creates that negativity? what are they exactly doing?
    AprilR
    AprilR
    Coworkers constantly complaining and gossiping. I am pretty sure they gossip about me too. I am constantly trying to be positive and friendly and it is exhausting
    I feel like exploding. I am always confused and stressed about what should i do, what are people thinking, how should i act.
    I am feeling a bit frustrated with my therapist. I kept trying to explain that i don't have a social instinct and she would ask why? It's not bc of external reasons, but brain difference.

    They are just too different from me and have no understanding of autism and me being autistic. So i don't expect much from them

    I stopped acting and now everybody in town is harassing, opressing, ostracizing, talking about me as im insane, saying im deaf, intentionally antagonizing me and teaching others to do it etc.

    Sometimes i feel like people are naturally born evil.
    Stories will always be my life and my escape from the world. I am grateful for them

    I don't play games much but almost all the games i played stayed with me also. I feel happiness and sadness with characters and some of them were/are still my emotional support in this world.
    Owliet

    Same for me. I laugh, cry, all emotions. Currently playing a game that has been very sad to get through.

    Which one? Somehow sad stories are also the ones which affect me the most.
    I think i might be actually getting better at work. My employer keeps praising me. Still feels surreal to think i am not that dumb.
    Shaddock
    Shaddock
    that´s really black and white. black "I´m dumb", white "the employer praises me, I´m so great!" and you are like ping pong from black to white.
    Shaddock

    praise is good, but self-confidence and trust in yourself is better. praise makes you dependent and more vulnerable. also real self-confidence comes always from inside. when from outside, then it´s mostly "just" temporary.
    AprilR

    But how do i know i am good if no one gives me feed back? I wouldn't know objectively if i am good at work. Self confidence doesn't mean much if it's empty
    I can't believe how irrational and childish some people are. I hate people.
    AprilR
    AprilR
    I mean i understand if they have problem with the employer, but i didn't do anything to deserve this treatment. You are very right, work place can be hell for autistic people. I hope they can get over their negative feelings.

    Often I go one stop further and say i just hate the state of existing
    AprilR
    AprilR
    I like existing as long as i am not in a place with people who hate me. I can't stand absorbing their hate.
    My employer praised me in front of all the coworkers today. I could feel them getting annoyed and jealous of me. I hope they don't start hating me. Why are people like this..
    I hate going to fancy restaurants alone. Always feel like people are talking behind my back
    Forest Cat

    Oh, you're allergic tree? That's a shame. But you can have something fancy at home too. :) Doesn't have to be a restaurant.

    I get why it feels awkward, and I hope that you can see that it isn’t necessarily bad to be on your own for going to places like these. Ive done similar when I’ve had to wait for something or chilling out after a bike ride. I usually get a drink, sandwich and have my book. If someone Judges that, the. Isn’t that their problem and not mine? Or your problem? I hope that you can enjoy your time. :)

    I hate to eat at any restaurants alone. Even fast-food joints. Always order to take my food home.
    I started intermittent fasting. Let's see how this goes.

    How does it differ from the ordinary pauses between eating?
    AprilR
    AprilR
    It's basically stopping eating after a certain hour for 16 hrs. For example if you eat dinner at 8 pm you don't eat anything until 12 am the day after. No snacking at night. Idk if it's effective for weight loss, will try and see

    I've seen people talking about it.

    Maybe it works for people who otherwise wouldn't be thinking
    about how much they eat.
