Did anyone else feel super alien and disconnected from their peers starting in early childhood? I remember always knowing something was a little off.

    yeah! absolutely. I remember there was a ton of miscommunications that happened that were kind of interpreted as quirky. my quietness was always me being "shy" but I was actually a really outgoing kid. i always felt super disconnected from my peers though, it felt like there was never the same unspoken understanding that everyone else seemed to have, and it was lonely for sure.

    Haha yeah I was the same. Quiet as a mouse in elementary and middle school, gained confidence in high school and now I dont know when to stop talking….

    yeah! i gained a ton of confidence when i was 16, and made a few connections and now all I do is talk around them. but now I don't have that same confidence to make more friends which is frustrating lmao.

    Definitely lol. I was so different and cut off from other kids that i was convinced i was a mythical creature (werewolf to be exact). Ive also largely identified with robots since i was little, because they felt like me
