itaat? I sometimes have weird preferences for one thing, just based on where I've gone first. For example, we were camping, and in the bathroom there were two stalls - the first time I went, I went in the left one without thinking about it. For the rest of the trip, I would wait to go in the left one, even if the other one was open. This happens with other things as well, such as a seat at a table, or a place on the couch. I don't know if it's a routine thing - maybe it's knowing what to expect?

Yes, this would be an autism thing. It has to do with need for routine/difficulty with change.

Love in Contrast

eyes askance,
trembling, holding tea,
pouring, mumbling, hoping,
praying there’s no judging,
biting on her bottom lip,
thinking of just folding,
firms her grip, and let’s slip
secrets, like her time at Yale,
how she wanted to teach,
a name, a face out of reach,
her change, a shift in color,
her register lift from bass
to tenor (with a crass laugh),
and as the day wore on,
the light, it got brighter,
in contrast to nature,
like everything else,
it fit like a glove,
as did her love:
a wonder.

Yep! That would be difficulties with change.

You want the goth subculture to continue existing? Then accept that not everyone can be an 80s goth and a 90s goth. Those times are past. There will be 2000s goths and 2010s goths and hopefully goths for many, many years to come. And there will always be differences and the scubculture is going to evolve. Stop shitting on current goths just because you you can’t change and are suffocating in your stagnation and elitism.

Iiaat that once i used the restroom at a store and my mom said she'd be around and i assumed she meant outside the door/ within my line of vision and when she wasn't i freaked out? It could be an anxiety thing but normally i don't cry if i lose anyone because i always have my phone on me. She said she would be around, and when i couldn't see her, i just burst out crying. Would that have something to do with disliking change?

Yep! You expected one thing and something else happened which can be very hard for autistic people to deal with.

You’re looking through your feed trying to find posts to relate to. So you don’t feel alone. And that good feeling you get when you read one that describes exactly how much you’re hurting, a lot of people feel it too. You’re not alone. We’re in this together. It might seem tough, it might seem hard, and maybe it is. But you’ll get through the storm. You’ll come out stronger, don’t you worry.
