hey. I'm autistic... And suspecting something else.

I seem to encounter a lot of instability, like creating and destroying communities and very easily changing mind.

My obsession/hyperfixation issue got worse since jan 16 too, it was bad already but now i cannot stop creepily obsessing and stalking people. I also seemingly cannot stop listening and obsessing over the band feeder, im listening to 'turn' right now

Also the internet hooks me so much i forget to do anything else...

Sometimes over small things i get suicidal thoughts but am to weak to do it. Or end up acting like a 5 year old...

Help... :(

Is that autism or something else? Autistic people have strange thoughts, and they can't understand things, and they like to stick to a routine. They tend to be intelligent too, but what you are saying sounds like some sort of personality disorder or something, maybe I'm wrong, but it doesn't sound very much like autism.

I had undiagnosed Aspergers when I was 27 and had intrusive thoughts. They were suicidle in nature. I wonder if it could be that.

Check out things online about ocd, I had Pure O. The thoughts of harming myself and other people but it was more a fear. The fears would manifest themeless as videos and photos in my mind. It's very common for people who are Autistic to also have the other conditions related to it. Like I was born Autistic but got tourettes when I was 7. One of my childhood friend's children has tourettes cause his dad has it but also had HDAD. It's all related.

How much 'help' do you receive from the services? Do you have any 'help' from 'friends', or are they more the sort to help themselves? :)

Sometimes our responses are down to the diseased shit of other people, not so much (or exclusively) ourselves ;)

Or to put it another way, we're not always the problem, though others would have us believe we are, as they pull their shit :)

Fuck 'em :meanie:

Yo Chickenonabone! That multi-problem thing is worrying me too but can we start to chain-diagnose anyone before the circumstancies are "neutral" or controlled by ONE controller. For e.g medication has swapped and then impartial observer is checking you out but "stance x" managed to give you "crap-blast" from side and the observer is not aware of it and thus, the evaluation is ruin.
I'm sorry to hear your suicidal tendencies. Good that you can self-detect the smallness of the triggers but if they are not tongue on the cheek ones out of it, they are always serious. And emergency when it's the only thought left in head.
How you manage to jam yourself on everything? It doesn't sound bit funny? I often, unfortunately listen the same songs because head is empty, the selection process takes half a life time.

Hi, sounds tough.

ASD often gets misdiagnosed as Personality Disorder, but it is also not impossible to have both.

Delusions and paranoia seem to be dismissed for people with ASD as part of the syndrome, but none of the diagnostic definitions include these things. So I think a lot of psychosis for people with ASD is missed, or dismissed because it doesn't look quite the same as psychosis where the sufferer is neuro-typical. People with ASD often need lower doses of medication to cope with delusions. I think that's because we're better at coping because we are used to surviving with too much information.

Getting drawn into an activity to the point of forgetting other things is typical ASD, so is obsession.

I'd talk to an autism specialist first, because there is a high risk of misdiagnosis if you go to a mental health professional who does not have a very very good working knowledge of ASD. If you get a Personality Disorder diagnosis it is virtually impossible to shift. If it makes no sense to you then its best to avoid people who might label you that way. If it does make sense, make sure that any treatment you get is adapted to take account of your ASD.

Good luck, yours Pejay

Does it feel that bad? Autism? I might be too, just the world looks "different" that it did before. And if the burden of multiple issues is gnawing you, i try to consolate. I've got at least ADD/ADHD (depends), maybe Aspenger too, 3-5 broken ligaments on legs, Handedness keeps swapping (my best guess is female righty and male lefty), DID (causes by anti-psychotic medication which i never didn't need), i might be also male-hermaphrodite and experiencing some sort of female puberty (nipples popped out in Finland, hurts beyond cry, and then they travel back and forth, femurs comes out from pelvic, vertebrate has got loose on pelvic too, occasion pain there where women has ovaries, bla bla bla...) and as an icing on the cake at the moment broken toe(s?) at left leg and all the toews arer paralysed. So, that's not all but yeah, i do understand the emotion/state of beeing when nothing doesn't matter and self harming is the only thought in the head! I've done it earlier this year.
What is the hyperfixation of yours, if i may?

Autism isn't something you get at some point in your life that makes things different It is always there. You are born with it. You feel different and like you don't fit in. Some people are very inflexible with strict routines and ways of doing things, others are completely chaotic. Its very common with Aspergers to have a real problem with untidiness and lots of rubbish and mess in your house.

The thing with handedness and loose tendons could be dyspraxia, often occurs alongside other neurodevelopmental conditions like autism and/or ADHD. Sure the pain in the ovary area isn't your kidneys? Maybe you should check it out? Are you on any meds? Sometimes the nipple problem is a side effect of some meds.

Sorry to hear about your toes. You seem to be falling apart! Hope you feel better soon.
