Slightly autistic?

Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru
Years ago my sister told me she thought I was slightly autistic!

When I think about it perhaps I am? As a teenager I used to hide and ask my mum to tell my friends I was out if they called round. Not because I din't like them but because I just didn't want to be dragged out to do stuff with them, it was like a kind of torture for me.

One friend told me when we'd grown up that she follwed me round school trying to be my friend but I was always really standoffish. Even when she told me I was like 'yeah...ok, am I supposed to say sorry?'

I have a couple of good friends now but I even keep them at arms length and if I bump into people I know when shopping and they suggest going for a coffee I often make up a story about how I've got to be somewhere else so i don't have to sit down and talk to them!

Anyone else like this?

    you never know, but maybe your friend just doesnt get why you like your own company best. doesnt neccesarily mean it has to be a medical condition. You dont come across as having autistic tendencies in the way you write, but obviously i dont really know you.

    :no: im not. but i do have days when I just cant be bothered with anything or anyone and If i see an old friend or someone i know, i usually keep my head down or try to avoid them.

    I think maybe I know where you`re coming from byny. You have a serious mind, that much is obvious. You have little patience for small talk? You appear to be antisocial, but you`re not are you? You just don`t want to waste time.

    I could be wrong.

    If you are seriously worried about it why dnt you get your self assessed?
    i think what you do have wouldnt be autism specifically, but asburgers(sp) with is like a mild form of it.
