I told my mother in law that I may be autistic to which she replied “no you’re not as you don’t wave/flap your hands about” I had to explain to her that that’s one symptom of autism that’s not inclusive to every atypical person. But I totally see what your saying about NT’s think they know all

Yes. Another common one... 'Are you sure? You don't look autistic.'
Apologies to those who've seen this before (or those who don't like swearing):
I've seen it around, but never actually watched it. Great!
'People with autism don't feel empathy.'
'Oh, **** off!!!'

I can actually say I do struggle with empathy lol I know how I should feel and well I just don’t
JasonYeah, me too. Or when I do feel sad, I still doubt whether I really feel sad, and subsequently get stuck in a vicious circle :-|
Oh I’m very gd at feeling sad for myself just no one else lol
