Are there any other autist people here?

I am only mildly autistic (mum was NT, dad was a less exaggerated version of rainman, I was once more like temple grandin without the maths skills...my area was more humanities/pscyology/biology/writing) but i have great compassion for those whom are more severly affected.

I am not sheldon cooper from the big bang theory, although I love that series and my faviourte characters are Penny, Leonard and Amy. Also raj..he is so shy he is adorable.

The problem is i have the central nervous system of an autistic person...I have physical sensory issues, I need organisation and routine, I cannot stand people touching my collections (they are like little people to me, some of them even have a perssonality of their own even though i know they are inanimate objects (personification) and i get stressed in a way i cannot explain when they do so), I have autistic meltdowns or I shutdown and retreat from the world, I can't cope with too much physical/sensory stimuli.

I want to be social, I am lonely but sociallising takes energy out of me...in many ways I don't enjoy it, I try but there is so much preesure to kee talking its killing me.

People think that if i am quiet it means i dont like them....that is sooooooooo not true. I can think they are adorable but i just want to be quiet right now or just sit and enjoy my hobbies/interests (i love doing puzzles, I collect jigsaw puzzles...they are beautiful to me and I used to love doing stitching too....I also love research when its a subject that interests me...its so fascinating...right now I am into parapsychology).

Am I alone here or is there anyone else like me?

They want me to be a people person, they think my lack of social desire means I don't care and thats not true...

The voices I have always call me autist and used to call me aspie, before my mental illness I was considered intellectually Gifted with above genius i.q. now I have to fight for my right to not have dyslexia and to be able to remember short term. I have a son who is severely autistic and it runs on his father's side. Anyways sorry -- I felt to say these things even though I'm not yet diagnosed with autism and am schizoaffective.
