Well its that time of year for me. Im sick. Glitching, jobless freindless familyless. I have a distorted reality and im chain smoking all the time. I am not a fan of people. Like other post people get praised for apathy. Good luck
I watched this video on anxiety and dermatillomania, and the symptoms described me perfectly. For those of you who don't know dermatillomania is an Impulsive Compulsive Disorder and Obsessive Complusive Disorder where you have the urge to pick your skin until the point where it bleeds or begins to hurt. I'm almost certain that I have this, I constantly pick my skin and my lips to the point where they're bleeding, really hurt and look awful. I've got a doctor's appointment tomorrow to speak to my doctor about it, apparently the best way to stop is CBT, which I'm doing at the moment, until then, I've got my tangle toy, which I'm using a lot more to try and stop picking my skin, which is currently really bad. Just wanted to share this with people, because I didn't even realise I was doing it, it was just something I did, I had no idea it was a disorder
i am 13 almost 14 now and have aspergers. this is really embarrassing for me to talk about but i really need help, I have always had really bad gas since i was a baby due to parts of my aspergers but it is really bad now. my tummy hurts really bad, giving me cramps, pressure, and really bad aches and pains. which it has to some extent my whole life but it is worse now. sometimes it hurts so bad it makes me want to cry and i feel like I have to Toot but cant. I will lay down and strain as hard as I can but cant toot any. i usually eventually am able to toot a little bit and make it feel a little better but it is getting in the way of my life where i cant go play with friends or anything because my tummy will start hurting. my mommy has tried changing what i eat and tried giving me some medicines and stuff but it doesnt help any. I am still able to toot some sometimes but i feel like i am full of bubbles and just cant get the toots out. mommy says that alot of other kids like me also have bad gas so i was wondering what everybody else does to get their toots out, how can i make my tummy feel better, what can i do that will make me be able to toot. and what do you do at school if your tummy hurts or if you have to toot because it really embarrasses me to toot around my friends so i try to hold it in. i try going to the bathroom to let out my toots but by the time i get there i cant let them out anymore. please give me advice on how to make my toots come out and make my tummy better thank you
So after a short conversation about broken bones in the 10 random facts thread, it got me thinking about pain tolerance in aspies. I usually have a very high pain threshold, although I have had relatively few serious injuries really. How is everyone else with pain? Would you class your pain threshold as high, or low compared to those around you? I wondered if maybe people with aspergers either have high pain thresholds or have a decreased ability to communicate that they are in pain/dismiss the pain as trivial. (Anyone who didn't see my post, short story is I broke my arm and nearly didn't get an X-ray because I wasn't crying. ). I have a high pain threshold, and when something does hurt I tend to just loose my breath a bit rather than yelling or crying. Anyone else?
