An Aspie Question

Posted by Nikira , Jan 14 2013 · 220 views

I am never going to get used to writing that. OTL
But uh, okay, since I know there are other aspies wandering around the blogs: Are you able to feel when you're getting overstimulated? And what do you do to get yourself calmed down again?
I get very, very irritable and upset, kind of like the feeling you get if someone pokes you with a stick and doesn't listen when you tell them to stop. I just haven't found good ways to get myself back to a calm state. So I'd like to hear what other people do.

I get that way sometimes. Honestly, I'm not really sure what I do besides take a break from doing whatever gets me upset and come back later after I've cooled off.

Yeah, the best solution (although not always feasible) is to remove yourself from the situation. Sometimes as little as a bathroom or water break can be enough. But not always. In high school I made sure to have an accommodation that allowed me to excuse myself from the room to talk to a counselor at any time. That hasn't been possible at college. I recommend making sure that at least one person in a position of authority in those sorts of situations is aware of your condition and willing to accommodate you taking a brief break if you get too overwhelmed.

I'm taking a break from the site due to my health, so my blog will not be updated very frequently.
I'm sorry and I hope I can come back soon.
