    Do you mean the positive traits, which symptoms affect each person, or the peculiar aspects that would be considered weird?

    Hi, Welcome to the community.

    I have autism and struggle day to day with it, the only way I will socialise is online though games or chats. I don't like to talk to meet anyone and get from anxious when forced to do so which sets off my other illness's and I become very poorly. So most times I just stay locked in my room with my computer for company. I don't go out much and when I do I only go out to visit my family members for which I get a lift there and back from my step-dad.

    I tried recently to have a job but this caused too much anxiety and stress on me, which has set off my illness and now I am really poorly again and in pain most days. I have sensativity's to noise and can have a melt down if the environment is too noisy or crowded. I have a general fear of going out incase anyone talks to me or tries to interact with me and the only way I can go shop is if I'm accompanied and I plan out exactly what I want, and know where it is in the shop, if its missing or moved I will freak out and panic.

    I have to have a routine and will do pretty much the same thing at certain times, and have set days of doing stuff again I will get upset if this broken, the only thing that helps with this is if I gear up far in advance for something and plan it throughly beforehand so anything spontionous I hate and will freak out.

    I tend to take things literally and don't understand sarcasm or jokes and have a very one way sided view of looking at things which has made me lose friends, and I have a problem reaching out or contacting people. I'm not one for messaging people first and it takes someone to message or phone me before I will try to contact them which again has lost me friends in the past. I will only speak to people I already know like family or my care coordinator, but will ignore spontanious calls from anywhere else.

    Family tell me also that I am very cold, I don't understand emotion or don't read peoples emotions so I laugh when I'm meant to be sad, or get very sad and angry when I'm meant to be happy. I also don't always initally pick up that a person is upset or hurting unless prompted and don't know how to repond to it.
