      Overstimulation/understimulation for sure. I get over stimulated very easily but also get under stimulated easy. It's difficult to maintain a balance

      Executive dysfunction and social interaction are very difficult for me.

      Having to be around people constantly. Having to talk to people and mask constantly. Having to fit into today’s society when I’m burnt out.

      Overstimulation, meltdowns, and painful/self injuring stims ): I hate hate hate hate having meltdowns because I always hit my head or my forearms/thighs because I'm so far gone I have no way to express my frustration or fear or negative emotions, so I just aggressively stim to get the feelings out. I've suffered 5 concussions from it in my lifetime and it's horrible

      ARGH after today i would like to update my response it’s not exactly a symptom but having to mask especially for work i work retail it’s SO exhausting

      For me it's gotta be social cues, but similarly to social cues I also frequently cannot comprehend societal constructs like gender, virginity, religion, etc. Also idioms. Idioms suck.

      overstimulation. light, touch, and sound all can drive me crazy

    • aesathe

      not wanting to talk but being forced to

    • gods_inhaler

      miscommunication/Social Cues. With most of the other symptoms I can cope or even improve upon, but these are something that... for me... I'll just never be good at. I have lost so many friends to it and it just often eats away at me just how bad I am at relating to others properly.

      I agree with all of these just the normal things we usually struggle with going about our day with others over stimulating things and being completely bord but not knowing what will actually stimulate u and not make u feel mind numbingly bord and when u have these moments when u say things that aren’t right and u don’t know till it’s to late or i blurt something out like I’m not in control of my body.

      Probably overstimulation. After COVID, I could never go into a public place without feeling stressed and agitated. And also probably the way society looks at you as like a virus of some sort

      For me it’s the stims I get when in certain situations. They can sometimes be painful and involuntary if I become too overwhelmed. I.e neck spasms, finger bending/cracking, shivers, and obsessive knawing of the inside of my cheeks as well as intense dissociation

    • Jenni_Star

      MISCOMMUNICATION
