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
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?
