Does anyone else have trouble understanding when your upset?

      It legitimately took me a while to figure out why i snapped at people so often. First i learned it was frustration, not anger. Then I learned it was from overstimulation and other factors. Now I'm getting better at noticing it. So yeah, for a while I did. The more I learn about ASD and the more coping and understanding skills I find, the better I get at identifying and handling my emotions.

      The business I work at stresses me out almost every night . When it's occupied with customers that require my help while I'm paying attention to the manager , when I drop something and it causes a loud bang with the other employees yelling at me , or if it's just too crowded and I feel suffocated .

      Once I get to the point of being frustrated with a situation I generally know but frequently in arguements and other interactions with people if they suddenly say something insulting/upsetting I frequently freeze and don't feel upset or come up with a comeback until I'm out of the situation. It seems like I struggle processing my emotions of there's anything else going on around me.

      I usually recognize my actions in response to my mood (ex pinching myself in response to feeling upset) I don’t really recognize my emotions directly.

        @Romii majority of the time i can't tell i am upset until i explode like a bomb. Its like there is a timer in my head that i have no clue about until it goes off. Like i have to be crying or doing something physical for me to recognize i am upset. Its really annoying

      My gf told me i was trauma dumping on her by accident but i didn't realize i was doing that because the things i told her although were bad never actually upset me. I would just be telling her about my day and it just happened that most of those things were bad but never saw them that way.

        @PaypayLoves what could possibly be happening in your day to day interactions that's supposed to be traumatic? Even telling her about a bad day, but especially if you dont feel it's bad, is just telling her about your day. It's not trauma dumping if there's no trauma involved and no emotional labor being asked for, it doesn't seem like you're traumatized from it since you still aren't upset about it after realizing you had a bad day. Sorry if that's not the part you wanted to talk about I know I don't know the full situation so I could be wrong, it just seems odd and a bit unfair to accuse you of.

      Yeah sometimes I’m irritated or depressed for no reason. I try to talk it out with a friend or a family member

      Sometimes I can tell I'm upset but don't know why. Sometimes I can't tell how much something affected me until I start having a physical reaction. Sometimes I don't know something upset me until some time after I've left the situation.
