I feel like i'm going insane

Hi, so i'm a girl (not diagnosed for anyting, idk what's happening with me but i think it's something idk) in her second year of uni, and since i started lessons when they we're online, i never actually had real lessons.

Is There a Test?

Both of my sisters and I think that I am on the spectrum. Mom, however, flatly denies it, stating how social I was as a baby.

There are more examples I can use. To list a few, I was toilet trained late, I spoke late (I assembled a simple radio kit before I learned to talk), I was constantly experimenting, connecting different speakers to get various tones and volumes, and I had no concept of ...

Unable to attain crafts

I am not sure if anyone suffers from this, but I find it that I am unable to understand the essence of topics, of things. It is not that I have dementia or an intellectual disability, but I am extremely detail-oriented, and I am never through things, I commence a lot of projects but never finish one of them, and I never attain a craft to which I had entailed myself to learn. I once ...

I just realized we really are d*ckheads sometimes

New here. So I just encountered another autistic person online and they showed behavior that made me realize why certain people have reacted to me in certain ways in the past. They were taking things too literally, were WAY too intense and negative just for the sake of being negative, but kept on, oblivious to the social cues I was dropping. Is there any way to reach through to a person like this? I know ...

diagnosed as a teen, struggling to adult on my own

hi. i'm 21 and got diagnosed with asd when i was 17. it took me a couple years to fully accept it, but i kind of figured i was autistic to begin with because my sister is also but more prominently, and i could see the similarities.

however, my parents are completely in denial. my sister was diagnosed at 4 and i think they just don't want to accept that both their kids are autistic. ...

Anyone here prescribed risperidone for irritability?

I'm prescribed the anti-psychotic risperidone which I find has been immensely helpful. I take 1mg a day and it calms my mind down.

How stress manifests itself in Autism??

HI

I'm hoping 'Shock the Monkey' see's this as they offered fantastic explanations when I very first posted on here about Maladaptive Daydreaming but I don't know how to tag them into the post?

There's a condition called Conversion Disorder that makes psychological/mental stress present as physical symptoms. In NT people this is often a short term thing,so when the source of stress disappears or is solved the symptoms go.

What would happen if this ...

Autism and driving?

I just joined this forum so sorry in advance for any awkwardness.
My father has granted me the opportunity to learn how to drive on multiple occasions now, in which I respond with excitement. However, once behind the wheel, I'm tormented with fear and the horrific memory of a car crash I was in seven years ago.
I understand the mechanisms of operating a vehicle, I'm just afraid something will capture my and I'll crash ...
