        Yeah, i don't take calls from unknown number anyway but this happens with any phone call. I can never make out what the other person is saying, i always ask"what" multiple times and after still not understanding a thing i pretend to understand and finish the call.

        Was it even from a bank in which you actually have an account?

        It was, i am pretty sure it wasn't a scam. And i have this problem even when i am talking with friends. I have to be in a very quiet place to understand what people are saying.

        Sometimes. But also i myself have too much expectations of the people around me so i am trying to be more self reliant and not depend on other people.

        Good luck with that! I don't think it's possible to completely stop having expectations of people ... it might be more reasonable to simply try to have 'more realistic expectations of people'. which is kinda difficult to do given the complexity of human relationships.

      Exercise honestly helps me so much. I still think the same depressing thoughts but care so much less.

        I've been experiencing the same. Since I started to go to the gym, I feel happier throughout the day. Exercise is a real antidepressant: it promotes the release endorphins that improve the symptoms of depression.

        You aren’t alone. I feel the same and I actually felt like an NT when I was in a Autism support group. Why a cloud?

        Thank you, i sometimes feel the same way, not belonging anywhere. It doesn't have to be a cloud, a plant or even a pet cat would do. I am tired of thinking and planning my life so much, which being a human requires

        I am sorry if that word made anyone uncomfortable. It was just how i genuinely felt about myself and needed to get it out of my system.

        If it helps. I know how you feel. I decided to study biology on my own. Still feels like studying. Just can't get the information in my brain.

        When I was in grad school I had to study a lot. I sort of liked it because it was like being a child, since there was all this stuff I didn't know, but I could work at it to learn it.

        Hope you didn't down something awful in a weak moment. If you did, call 911 or whatever the emergency line is where you are and get to a hospital.

      Is it normal to act a little bit different than you are to find a common ground with a friend?

        I notice you are acting for their sake, but where is the enjoyment for you? You will exhaust yourself and give up eventually if you don't take care to do enjoyable things for you with her. Worry less about her and take care of your needs in the friendship for now. Having friends should be fun and enjoyable for you.

        Secrets are okay. There are somethings that are your business only and most friends are on a *need to know basis*. Sometimes we trust to easily, so a boundary of not over-sharing is important to our surival.

        The only friend I didn't to do this with when I wasn't open about my Autism very much was with my friend, Nate, who was in the same sped class as I was in middle school. I started to do this less as I began to accept myself more.
