I know a lot of autistic people have certain eating habits such as liking certain foods and things, but I wondered if anyone else had similar habits to me. At the moment I feel a bit strange to say the least!
These are some of my habits:
But if I go to someone else's house, none of these things apply. It's only if it is my house that I have these habits. I wonder if its linked to OCD?
I can’t relate to the dirty plate thing but definitely certain crockery and cutlery for certain things. I have 5 different cups - one for tea, one for my morning coffee, one for coffee at other times, one for cappucino and 1 for hot chocolate or Horlicks. Drinking from the wrong cup messes with my head. E.g If I put coffee in my tea mug it would taste horrid because my brain would espect it to be tea. Also soup bowls for soup, cereal bowls for cereal, bread knife for bread, teaspoon for yoghurt, dessert spoon for ice-cream, and those spoons have to be the oval ones not the round ones. I cant’t use a round spoon for ANYTHING!
