2021.12.05 02:22 joyandmiracles I think I'm Autistic. Can a regular doctor diagnose that?
29F 220 lbs, 66in Caucasian Complaint: I suspect I'm autistic. Existing Medical Conditions: PMDD, ADHD, Developmental Coordination Disorder Not currently taking medications I do not drink, smoke, or use recreational drugs. Family History: 2 of my brothers have Autism. I also was physically, emotionally, and sexually abused. I am currently in therapy and have been for almost 2 years. I've made enormous progress and am very proud of myself for that.
My big question is can I tell all of this to like my primary care doctor and get diagnosed? I legitimately struggle at work, and I'm terrified that some of my quirks are going to get me fired.
Indicators I chewed on my crib so much as a baby I broke my teeth. I know that I walked at 14 months. I had significant challenges in kindergarten. I was eventually diagnosed with Developmental Coordination Disorder and did an extra year of school called "Developmental First Grade" before proceeding to first grade. After first grade, I tested into the gifted program and made perfect grades until I graduated. I had dysgraphia as well. I struggled with verbal expression. My entire life I've struggled with skin-picking. I didn't have any friends. I also didn't really care. I didn't know to care. I had intense interests. From the age of 9-19, I wanted to be a neurosurgeon and spent every hour of my day outside of school studying anatomy and physiology. I had college textbooks and coloring books I used to memorize all the different parts of the body. I never make eye contact with anyone. It makes it harder to hear them. I'm extremely sensitive to sound. I've broken down into tears over how sensitive I am to sound. I'm also sensitive to light, and if no one else is in the office at my work, I'll work all day with just my desk lamps on. I've been described as having a "blunted affect" by a psychiatrist. I treat everyone the same regardless of position and status. So I talk to my boss the same way I talk to my therapist or my sister. I tend to overshare. I don't recognize it as oversharing. It's more like the information I am giving feels essential to me. I'm horribly blunt and honest. It shocks people sometimes. I can't read between the lines very well. I also don't always recognize jokes or sarcasm. I listen to the same song over and over and over and over for days and weeks on end. I tap the side of my leg all the time when I'm thinking. I move my arms a lot when I'm in church. My husband jokes that I'm conducting the band, but it's how my body responds to music. I accidentally repeat people all the time without even thinking about it. I get incredibly stressed if my routine is messed with. I've melted down over that several times. I also get incredibly stressed if my desk is messed with at work. I tend to eat the same thing every single day unless my husband basically makes me eat something different. When he was gone at basic training, I ate the exact same meal every day 3 times per day. I have the exact same conversation with every new person I meet. I rehearse conversations because I often lose the ability to speak. It's like my mind can't think and talk at the same time. I'm so interested in web design and development as well as graphic design that I taught myself as a hobby and ended up being so good at it that I was hired to do that full time. I remember everyone's birthday of every person who's ever told me their birthday. I remember strings of numbers and maps effortlessly. I'm completely indifferent to pain. It shocks people that I'm not more bothered when I am injured. My coworker has a plant on her desk that I walk by and touch every single time I am talking to her. She bought me one just so I could have my own.
Anyways, I could write a book long list... so I think I'll stop here for now.

2021.12.05 02:22 Idunnowhateve LF Tradeback to get a Gengar and an Alakazam
I've been burned twice trying for evolution trades with just randos online, having lost a Graveller and a Machoke, but those being fairly common in the undergroud were no big deal to go and replace and eventually I managed to successfully trade those replacements. However, I've put some effort into training my Haunter and Kadabra. Not that they're probably anything special by competitive standards, but I'd be annoyed if I had to go track down and raise brand new ones. So I was figuring maybe I could more reliably find someone who won't steal my Pokemon if I look here than just go online and cross my fingers. Let me know if you're interested.

2021.12.05 02:22 crucifixioncruise Why are everyone else’s dreams so poetic and “dream-like” while mine are always really oddly specific and random?
This is hard to describe but when I read or hear about others’ dreams it sounds unreal to me, like they are making it up almost. They seem so symbolic and poetic and have these themes to them, and a surreal or dream like quality. People often talk about dreaming about drowning or falling or being in a forest or running away from something or seeing animals, etc. things that seem very poetic and general. Oceans, forests, dark or enclosed spaces, vast landscapes, dramatic incidents, clocks, animals, family members, etc. Now I know that they are not made up but it seems crazy to me to hear because my dreams are always really detailed and specific and seem completely random and like they would never be published by a psychoanalysis as an example. My dreams are always about very specific plots that are intricate and difficult to explain, and revolve around specific details that make them seem non-poetic.
For example last night I dreamed that I was searching for a therapist online but I had to go on vacation with her to get her services. She was about my age and for some reason we were roommates. She also had a sister and was Russian. Most of the dream was me trying on her clothes and I remember the brand names, then eating breakfast with her, then being left alone for a while in the house, then making myself a bowl of cereal and looking for the bowls, then walking to a boat, etc. part of the dream was also watching a movie about two Russian men (who were her brothers— at some point I was in the movie?) and at one point they set a cat on fire, there is also a psychiatrist who advises them not to? The specifics are even weirder like the cats belly was open for some reason, but it was gross in the dream/movie. And the cat became a book at one point.
Why aren’t my dreams more poetic or haunting? Or more unified? They’re mostly full of crap and random details and intricate confusing plots.
