I used to try to hold it in and always fail. I've finally gotten to the point of saying "ahh f#ck it" and let it hang out.

Autism is something you do not need to hide!!!

Just wait, you will get to te point where you say, "ahh f#ck it" I got to that point a year or two ago. I do not try to act " normal" in public because everyone on this planet is f*cked up in a way. We don't need to hide autism.

I've gotten to the stage where I barely notice anymore.

I suggest you learn to socialise; if you're at school, try chatting to randoms. Looking in the eye isn't the main problem to start with. See if you can catch onto a conversation, and if you drag it down to the ground, don't worry; you're still learning.

GreaseMonkey, just because your a socialized aspie, and possibly converted to NT does not make it possible for all autistics to get to your ability level in socialization. I for one know that I will never be able to do this so called, "socialization" thing, and it does not upset me. So while your suggestion is valid it may not be usable by most of the members of this board.

I just let it all hang out. I used to hide it from people, but I don't, anymore.

Cool
See that Harvard vending machine?

Your Harvard diploma is so cheap, I can get one printed for you on nice piece of fine paper for $5K.

How do you like that? Bring it on! >:)

I need to hide it as much as I can. When around in town or at school, I must hide it to appear somewhat normal. This way I don't get the sh#t taken out of me for being AS. Bloody arrogant NT's at my school. :wall:

I think we must make a reasonable effort to learn what we can to ease the distress of the rigid nonempathic blackandwhite-thinking neurelitists. We must STOP doing it to our own detriment. How is that helping them learn tolerance? :roll:

Another problem is that the better I pass, the greater their distress when I have an autistic slip up or deities forbid, shut down. No matter how we act, they will never accept it is not deliberate and personal against them, so we should be ourselves. :shaking:

Under recent stressors, I have reverted to some behaviours forgotten in childhood and found them very comforting. Why should they have been beaten out of me? Why are they wrong? Until I know, I will use them to continue my life. Or I can just quit life now. :flush:

At my age I supose I've learned to be as normal as posible in public but I have my moments and slip ups especially when I'm stressed or upset. Luckily, I have a full time support worker with me at university so it isn't usually a problem there. Having finished my first year, most people on my course and all my lectuers are used to my little quirks now and we even joke about them, unless I'm upset and then they understand. A few students have been less than nice but, to be honest, I think it's more to do with the fact they don't understand why I have help with certain things. They are young, vain and ignorant, and can't be bothered to ask me why I have help and what's wrong, their loss, not mine ;)

When I am completely expressing myself outwardly, being my complete dysmorphic Asperger self, or rather, being as close as I can be to the ideal that those two disorders create in me, I am happiest.
