Anyone else have an obsession they wish they didn’t have? I LOVE cars, but car culture isn’t kind to the ND. I wish i had a more “acceptable” interest for someone with autism….
Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)
Ever since I learned about Yahoo kusama whose obsessed with polka dots I'm obsessed with drawing hearts
that’s a great interest tho. This world needs more hearts tbh
I had a special interest in cars for several years but the local “car people” sort of ruined it for me :/ I hate that “they” got to me but maybe an alternative car culture could come to exist and reignite that passion. I think the reason why is that our interest in cars came from different ideals and the way we expressed that passion were just completely different. I still love to observe within my specific taste but no longer seek out community with or engage in content from enthusiasts.
i feel exactly the same way. Unfortunately it’s more than an interest for me. It’s “my thing” ya know? I’ve tried other stuff, it just doesn’t work…. Ugh
I can definitely relate to that feeling. My Interest was/is centralized on vintage car markets and felt completely alone even at vintage car meet’s because even though we all had the same interest I didn’t “fit in” with them. I was reading about how autistics could find community through interest based gatherings but that’s not always the case when our interests aren’t common amongst autistics. That being said, your interest is still valid and good and I’m open if you want to talk about it/positive
My special interest is in My hero academia. The fandom is horrible, and I get scared that as soon as I talk about it people will think of me differently 🤦🏻♂️ like no. I just want to tell you about my headcanons and why this single sentence is more important than anything else, etc.
I’m not OBSESSED with my hero, but i have watched some of it and it’s a good show. I’m not caught up tho, but if you wanna talk about it I’m open to it!
