But I have major communication problems and when I watch videos of people with autism speaking about their communication problems it hits home with me, a video I watched yesterday even made me realise why I always pull my phone out to play with/look at when I'm speaking in appointments etc. Never understood why I done that but now I realised it kinda helps me speak a little better.
I have no light/sound sensitivity or anything like that, only the communication problems. They say it's down to social anxiety but I'm not sure.
Is it possible to be autistic with only communication problems?
I failed the test and the psychiatrist said it's just anxiety.... but I don't understand how anxiety can cripple your communication skills as badly as mine every day in life
It's hard to give advice as I don't know you in person, so I'm not sure if you'll find this relevant. Do you think you meet the criteria for Social (Pragmatic) Communication Disorder? There are many symptoms and behaviors overlap between ASD and SCDhttps://www.autismspeaks.org/expert-opinion/what-social-communication-disorder-how-it-treatedhttps://www.autismspeaks.org/dsm-5-criteria
Ermm, not specifically but I have communication problems.
Don't think so
I have communication problems so it depends what this means? Sometimes I can be muted but in terms of related questions / ideas no, but because of my problems I'm not good at getting those questions and ideas out but I think this is a no
I don't even know what this means tbh
No friends but that's probably cause of my communication problems. 50/50 I think
