Isolate2: Here's mine from your list:



- For me, I think I can write well apart from the dyslexia. My speech sometimes like you.



- Social anxiety:

I have never had this problem before. I have gone to store or walking around my neighborhood and elsewhere. Every since I got sick (ptsd), I avoided some places and people. I gradually started again and not at all times...I need being acompanied by someone unlesss it is early in the morning or evening barely anyone in there.

- I never had a problem before about rules until something happened. Sometimes I tell myself, why is this person this way or think this way or act in such a way.



-OCD.

-I actually am not obsessed with one person. I also love enough that one person who I am with or married to. I can't say if I can or cannot date someone who is Neurotypical. I also like to be surrounded with good people.

- Before I feel sick, I communicated via face to face, phone (not lots but I did) but I am more comfortable via e-mail or online (before and now as well). I answer the phone when I am alone or if my husband is here. (don't always pick it up though if I don't feel like it, lol). I rarely open the door cause I had a bad experience where I was living at a point since then I got scared and now I am better with it. If my husband is with me, I don't have a problem. If I am alone, he also doesn't want me to open it.

- I look into people's eyes and turn away from time to time. I don't like to stare.

- Sensory problems: I have a good sense of smell. It all depends what it is.

- I am like you, about the interest...I can talk or read about it all the time. I also can talk about other things too. If I don't know about it, then I would like to learn. Sometimes, things don't interest me, then I am not interested. I am not into spacial things; eg: star wars, aliens etc...

I have and not have good imagination.



I have some aspies traits...does it make me an aspie? IDK..

I have ptsd and maybe also aspies. = Similar symptoms.

- I can write well and I know how to talk.. but my thoughts are unorganized and my speech makes me sound like a confused child.

-Social anxiety. I avoid Walmart and walking around my neighborhood.

-Can't understand the rules in society, people's feelings, or why people think the way they do.

-OCD.

-I become obsessed with one person.. often whoever I'm in a relationship with. I only have enough love to love just that one person. I cannot date someone who is "neurotypical".. I try to date good, normal people, but they always end up having some serious mental illness.

-Rather communicate with others online than in person. I also don't answer the phone and rarely answer the door.

-Avoid eye contact and have sensory problems.. mostly auditory.

-Have very narrow interests that I can talk or read about all day.

-No imagination.

tiderider; here's my list: Copied and paste from yours.



# Trouble speaking. Don't find, often confuse or interchange words or parts of a sentence.

= If you mean like dyslexia, I have it.



# Can't interpret facial expression, gestures, tone of voice

= False.



# Sensory problems of mainly auditory type

= Yes



# Stimming

= Very rarely.



# Lack of flexibility, especially with respect to changes in schedule

= I am more of a routine person and sometimes, I can handle change, it depends what it is.



# Avoid eye contact and can freak out when being touched unexpectedly

= I don't avoid eye contact. I actually love looking into people's eyes. If I don't understand, I tend to read lips.



# Don't socialize

= Maybe now, I don't socialize like I used to but before I did not have a problem. I wait for someone to start the conversation though. I won't approach first most of the time.



# Like animals over humans

= I like them both. For sure with animals, they will not backstab us, unlike humans.



# No understanding of social values and correlations

= I am more of an introvert, not saying I don't like spending time with people but I also need my alone time.



# Can't communicate in person but rather write

= I can communicate in person, I find it easier through writting and in most cases, I rather in writting.



# Living very reclusive and don't miss contact with humans

= Before, once in a while I used to spend time with others, I don't do it much anymore for X reasons. I need human contacts even if I don't directly talk to them.



# More often than not emotional blindness towards others as well as myself. If someone asks me what i feel, my standard answer is "i don't know, let me think about."

= I understand others and myself. I also say I don't know at times.



# I don't understand "unreasonable" things and concepts

= More of a yes then a no. (do not understand).



# I do understand humor, irony, ambiguities at least to a degree in written, but not at all in spoken form

= Most of the time, I understand it better in writting.

#6: I also don't like being touched unexpectedly.

There's things I can relate with you and others I don't. They say Aspies are different and not everyone has the same traits or characteristics. I have a few and I still don't know about Aspergers.
