I do this a lot and I'll usually repeat quotes/phrases/words over and over again until I'm out of breath or feel I've had enough. It feels a lot like Autistic inertia to me, I'll pace around for an hour and I'll keep telling myself over and over to snap out of it but I can't it seems.

I'm not surprised this isn't the norm *sigh* I have this too but I assumed to my nearsightedness. Static is a great way to put it. I also get floaters and was just researching about them today. The floaters are most noticeable when looking at white backgrounds and when I'm outside. seems ...

there's no such thing as death, life is only a dream. we are the imaginations of ourselves. you are the universe experiencing itself subjectively.

Apparently men wanting equal rights is misogyny and a sign of weakness. What is feminism then?

you should calmly remind him of what you do. im not saying that to mean you've done something wrong (or didnt do the right thing), but its possible hes just unaware of the fact as a lot of autist tend to be very self absorbed by nature.

I was doing a light laboring job (farm hand on chicken sheds) and I decided to jam in ear plugs because even a vacuum cleaner is too much noise for me and the clanging of metal is literally painful. But of course I was *told* I'm not allowed to wear ear-muffs or ear plugs because I need to be able t...

I don't tend to associate colors with numbers or words (often) but I associate colors and backgrounds heavily with days of the week. Months have colors too, like September is always red and October is white and November is blue and December is yellow. January goes red again and so on..... I read som...

I was having an appointment with one of my therapists today and I was going over how I feel like I don't fit in, and feel different from everyone else, and how depressed that makes me at times.

I was afraid of it when I was young but I built up a tolerance. I avoid it if I can now but if it's something I have to go through with then so be it.
