Someone in IRC wanted to know what Autism was. I can't speak for all of us autistics, as we are all different in everyway but I will talk as far I feel Autism has considered me.
For someone like me, I have a lack in social interaction. I'm unable to make any social contact, even though I am quite verbal. It's hard for me because sometimes I fear being around lots people I don't know. I become mute and won't talk, just stand there flicking my wrists or looking around at things. Sometimes I even rock back and forth on my feet.
I also have routines I follow. Before I go to bed, I have to watch a movie in order to fall asleep. I have to have my fan on and I also have to have my computer on and have to have my Inuyasha, Sesshomaru, Ichigo, and Flygon plush. I have to watch the same movie and no one can chose the movie for me or I get distressed.
I also have to have my taskbar in order by this:
If it's not in that order, i get distressed. I also have to have most of the things I do the same and I panic if something changes that I'm not aware of.
I also have meltdowns when my emotions take over and I get overloaded because of them. If something worries me, I come extremely distressed and if I fear something I also meltdown.
I have a very EXTREMELY low tolerance for sound, especially thunder, popping, gunshots, loud booms, etc... for me it's like having my head splitting apart. >_<
I also have a hard time with jokes/sarcasm. Sometimes it can be hard for me to understand them. Other times I get angry if people tease me, even if it's in a good way. I tend to take things seriously and literally and that's something that's been quite hard on me.
...I'll post other things when they come to me....
