Brother E: I never knew you had autism until you told me one time. It's hard to tell because you communicate so well and you are so smart. Especially with your mysteries  Smiley
Thanks! Yeah, not all people with autism are alike. My autism is relatively mild, but still very much present. I also learned how to cope with it over the years. Good to know my efforts to learn how to communicate better are paying off!

Well, it's a lot easier than talking in real life, because I can take the time to make sure what I'm saying comes out right, whereas if I try that in real life, people get annoyed at me not responding fast enough. I know, I've tried.

I have autism. I have had it for all my life, as far as I know.

I'm not good at social stuff, and had to manually learn what others all seem to instinctively know. I also can't focus well on anything if I've forgotten my medication, which is really annoying because it basically means I can't really do anything useful or fun for the whole day. You might see me here sometimes venting my frustration over that, if it happens again. Or you might see me just be really weird, because that also happens when I forget my medication.

Perhaps to balance it out, I seem to have heightened school abilities. I hardly study at all and still I get ridiculously high notes in everything, which also has me really worried I'll fail when I get to university because I never learned to study. Planning skills are another thing I'm really, really bad at because of my autism, so yeah, I'm pretty worried about that.

It's not the end of the world, but sometimes I wonder what it would be like to have a normal conversation without having to constantly analyze body language, tone of voice and choice of words to try to figure out the exact nuance of meaning the other person wants to convey, or to precisely regulate my own tone of voice, body language and word choice so I'm not misunderstood and I don't offend anyone.

Those things, which you all probably do without even thinking about it, are a conscious effort for me. That is partly why I prefer the forum over actual human contact, I think. Communicating through text eliminates the need to check body language and tone of voice.

I still misinterpret a lot of things, though. So if you see a reply by me that doesn't seem to make any sense, chances are I either forgot my medication, or I just misinterpreted the original post completely.

Oh, and sorry for making this such a giant story. I guess I just had a lot to talk about.
I have such a classmate (now at home schooling), he also had autism. My friend and I tried to talk to him, then he went somewhere, and he didn’t say anything, didn’t even pay attention, he just went where he needed to.

Some kids that have autistism are non verbal. My school has a program where you can sign up for a class to go down to the class and be a role model to them. I signed up and its actually really cool. You learn a lot and get to go on field trips with them. Its a lot more casual then you would of thought. I remember the first day being so scared but by the end of the first week you are like "why was I nervous?". And a lot of this goes with stereotyping. They do have moments but its just what is expected. Nobody's perfect. But just saying, I hope that we can break the mold and get more attention with mental disabilities. I had depression. I know what mental illness can do to you.

Let's say black. It's supposed to be more of a grayscale. (because it's a combination of red for mad, blue for sad, and green for sick, but all are severe.)

I'm surprised death is not even imminent.

My mood is white at the moment. A blank canvas, where everything has yet to happen, and at the same time a bright light of everything happening all at once. White is a weird mood to be in. It's the middle of the night and I'm wide awake, brimming with creativity but unable to focus it on any one thing.
