    • I came up with this question the other day I wondered how something worked. I thought to myself, how does a neurotypical think? Do they question how things work? Is their mind filled with many different thoughts? (since at least my aspie mind is always thinking) or do they not have many thoughts? Is their mind mostly empty? Is that how is it for them? I had all these questions and finally today I got around searching it. I skimmed through some questions on Quora and didn't think the responses I found gave the answers I wanted. They didn't explain their experience in this world which is what I'm curious about. I'm curious about how they experience this world, what goes on in their mind?

      So I kept looking and I found this article which I found very helpful, but wish it was more elaborate about the thoughts they have or maybe they don't have those thoughts? Like repeating or thinking about a script before saying it, do they experience that? Or is what they experience just the opposite of what non-neurotypical experience?

      I wish I could live in the brain of a neurotypical for one day or some time to see how it is. There are videos out there of what it's like to be autistic and sometimes they're closely portrayed to what it is. I wish there was a video out there of what it is like to be normal or some way to figure it out.

      Aside from being curious about what it's like to be a neurotypical, I'm also curious about what it's like to be normal too, what it's like for a person who doesn't have anxiety, depression, etc.

    • So I am learning to drive and my main issue is knowing when to break and accelarate.

      I find I am breaking way to early because I can't judge how much time I need to stop when I break. I also panic when I see other cars and when I turn due to spatial awareness. I also dont know how to steer. I am sweet if I am on a straight quiet street with no cars. Also if I know where Im going. My partner came to my last lesson and he noticed I was fine once we were heading home. Anyone else have these problems and how did they manage
