I'm usually rejected when I'm myself, so I'm alone, which makes me unhappy :mad:

Well, I like you when you are yourself here. :) And if I meet you in real life you need to be yourself. :)

Hiding disabilities on this forum is a big no no! Can result in me yelling at you or banning you.

I'd get so pissed off I would have to leave before I physically attack someone with my powerchair.

I don't really hide my disability from people I trust, though people who judge me don't deserve to know.
I just had the stuff I know people can't handle...the stimming, blank gaze, etc.

If people are too ignorant to understand disabilties, they're not worth knowing anyway ;)

As happy as an Autie topic

I am happiest when I am the arty Aspie, but when I have sensory overload/mood swings when out and dealing with others...YOU DO NOT WANT to see this! :wall:

I've realized that I get the most autistic in public. At home, I hold it in more. When I go to a store... I take a cart, hold into the tops of the sides of it instead of the handle bar, and I slip around the store all combined-out (I hang wide turns around corners, pull over to let people pass, go up and down the aisles as if they were rows of crop, I stop at 'intersections' and treat them like traffic conditions... gesturing for the person on my right to go, etc.) I also sometimes ride the bus simply for the sake of feeling the big diesel engine... I'll ride the bus all the way through a route three times over, face out the window and everything. But the funny thing is... when I am doing this, I am the most content. It makes me the most happy. I told my mom about this the other day, as I usually only do it when I'm alone... and she said, "You can weird out all you want around me!" She's the school district autism specialist, so she understands our types.

i will tell you one thing is I do NOT hold in at all at home. I am the most Autistic everywhere. But I usually am less obviously stimmy in public, aside from randomly rubbing my harness.

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.
That's what I've been trying to tell some people on other boards but then they say they are more aspie than me and they try...I just don't think that could be right that they are more aspie than me.
