I've taken a shower after four days , I feel less greasy but I still want to avoid contact . I've even been able to focus on myself for a while .

I feel pressured whenever I'm around good friends of mine . I don't want hugs from them anymore , and my stims have become more heavy . I'll catch myself swaying and whistling more frequently .

I think it's because I'm nervous about finals and summer school . I can't process that I'm trying to improve everything at the same time . It's like I'm coming back , but the end of the world wants me to start over .

Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)

      I think this might be my second burnout . What can I do to make it better ? I like being alone . It's good . I want to be alone but i want to tell my friends that I'm not mad at them.

    If I were you, I would just tell them "hey, I have ASD and because of this, It makes me prefer to be alone. I'm not mad at you at all." Don't ever be afraid to tell someone about your condition. If they are true friends, they will understand and love you unconditionally.
