Does it sound like I have autism?
The more I read about autism the more I'm like "OMG that would answer so many questions about my childhood and about how I am now"
I softly rock back and forth when I'm sitting down and have since I was a small kid. I snap my fingers really really really fast over and over again. When I was younger I used to flex my fingers kinda like playing the piano but not has 'hard'. I have a hard time with eye contact. I can't read social clues . I have a hard time making friends. I have a hard time keeping friends. When I'm in the store I touch all the fabrics as I pass by. I have difficulties starting and continuing conversations. When I have obsessions I have a one track mind. It's all I want to do and talk about. I don't like talking about things I'm not interested in. When I was in elementary school kids wanted me to play with them and I would sit off to myself. My teacher tried to get me to play with them and my parents sent me to a therapist because of it. I lied and just counted off my classmates and said we were friends though. I was embarrassed. I don't like social situations when I'm outnumbered. I don't even like family get togethers.
Should I talk to my doctor about autism?
