    Does anyone have any advice for dealing with loneliness as an autistic adult?

    I relate to this. Especailly with neglect from family members. As far as feeling lonely. I think that depends on how aware of my mental health I am. I've been disconnected alot, so loneliness doesn't play a factor in those moments. Just a endless hole of blackness. But I've found animals and...

    Diagnosis Advice

    Welcome, @stimmy turner Glad you found our happy little slice of heaven. In regards to getting diagnosed. It's not entirely imperative, if you function well enough to get by in life. Though if you are truly consurned about it, then you can go for it. A daignosis for Autism is more for getting...

    The games of the mind are many. But the one that haunts me the most, is abandonment. Loveless and poisoned by my distrust of others. Lost for a long time. Yet I've found some peace. Embracing some sense of myself.

    Hi.

    Well it will be helpful if you at least state what level you are. To break it down though: Level 1 Autism - You are able to function with minimal help for executive functioning and socail issues. Aspergers and High Functioning Autism fall into this category. Level 2 Autism - You need moderate...

    Hi.

    Well part of the reason is that ASD(Autism Spectrum Disorder) is a umbrella lable to describe our overall neurodiversity. The labels of HFA(High Funtioning Autism), Classic Autism, Autism with Comorbidities, etc. Are all individual descriptors for the more specific varieties of Autism there are...

    Hello, I'm new here

    Glad to have you with us, @PurpleDragon23 Understanding. It's a two way road. But for us, it's a two way road full of potholes and random rockslides when trying to interact in this NT world. But you'll find the understanding here you are looking for. We also have plenty of resources here...

    Infinite Looping Anxiety & Autistic Burnout

    There is something that I am now considering. That my misery cycle had a side component to it. Not that it is surprising. But I think I put myself in a infinite loop of autistic burnout because of stress and anxiety. It would explain alot. My mental state being what it's been, fueled my...

    Waking up today was different. No stress, not feeling like I need to beat myself up for something. Just happiness. Typically I'd feel a little background stress on even my best days. But today thier is nothing. Yesterday's release did more than unleash emotions. It's removed the notion to feel...

    Using people's names. Do you do it?

    Truthfully, I have found that exposing yourself to a name enough, will generally make it start to stick. Write down a few names you'd like to remember and repeat them as frequently as you like. Once a day, Twice a day, etc. The psychology of another person knowing your name, tends to elicit a...

    I'm feeling great today. My talk with Dad when he visited yesterday went well. He really regrets not being there for me more. But he wants to try and I do to.

    Crisps mouth feel

    It's not exactly a overly common practice to combine them, but you can do that. No one can tell you no. Food, and cooking in general, is a experimental medium, like art.

    Describe your experience with crowds…

    I have problems with crowds. Though only if they are condensed in one particular spot. The worst is when people park thier carts around me in a isle in a store, all mindlessly looking at shelves. I feel block in, like some caged animal that's being hunted. I also really don't like pushing...

    Anyone else recognise this in themselves?

    This is interesting actually. While the video soley addresses narcissistic abuse reactions during sleep specifically. This does make me question some of my behaviors too. How much is just Autistic, and how much is because of my abusive stepmother? It's definitely food for thought indeed.

    Drawing I've worked on all week

    I really like it. You did rather well in my opinion. Better than I can do, in alot of cases. For me, posing, lighting and shading, and even proper proportions can be quite a bit of a pain in the posterior. Even then, I think you really did well with the coloring work. It flows well. Being...

    I'm not ready

    What I mean is that I am not in the right mental state to face the world. I'm not entirely ready for situations that can happen in the world. This isn't self-deprecation. Just self-realization. I am not pleased by this, but I need to also remember this till I am ready. Same with my foggy, lost...

    Maslow’s Hierarchy and Autism.

    I'd be mindful with what information you take at face value on the internet. Alot has become muddled by political bias, in this day and age. The internet isn't the amazing information highway it use to be, anymore. I mean it still kinda is. Just the wrong kinda information mostly. In any case...

    Have do any of you deal with depression?

    THIS. This right here. Improvement in one's mentality, is in the bases of the desire to get better. If you constantly hide in your darkness by default, it means you are not ready and willing to try. Maybe you don't see your own wallowing as bad or abnormal. You like it, in some way, out of a...

    I am testing an idea of limiting my usage of my phone. Since a large amount of time is spent on this time waster. So far my mind has been clearer. I've noted things I generally would of never given second thought to, or cared to. "Not another day. No more confusion. No more living life to die."...
