Hi I'm new


No surrender
V.I.P Member
Hello, so I'm not even sure about my self-diagnosis but have been wondering about autism for years. I had a therapist (supposedly good) tell me, "Oh no, lol, if you were autistic you'd have zero empathy". I now realize that this was not quite accurate. Anyway, I might have a few traits.

Among things I've heard a million times: "You're way too literal", "You're so black and white" - also I have this idea that in a previous life I probably was a machine in a factory, and/or a bloodhound. All I do is observe, investigate, and seek to establish patterns - that's the only way I know how to think. And well, it works. I feel like a car going full speed and having to pull the breaks sometimes to look at something more closely - even when I let go, it's part of a pattern I've designed. I have zero imagination for "complete fiction" but can re-arrange reality in a million ways. I do have empathy, prolonged eye contact leaves me exhausted, confused and generally ashamed. And well, there's more, but hey. We'll see .
Anyway, hi, and looking forward to meeting you guys.
Welcome! I hope you'll find that this is a space where you can express yourself freely and ask the questions you might have been afraid to ask anywhere else!
Nope. You only get kicked for being mean, using gutter talk on an open board or doing dangerous drama antics.
So i wrote an intro thread a while ago. It was set for primitive bias, basic literacy, age 65. The whole format changed since then, i was gone for a while
Well several of us worked on it actually it was a group effort.

Ah, cool, thank you for sharing (and for making the tutorial) - I was just thinking I wasn't sure where to click, so this will help :)
