I go to therapy every week, so I'm guaranteed almost an hour of talking to someone. Plus, I try and get a hug each session. I cannot undervalue how huge it is to be able to talk to someone who listens and tries to understand And getting a real hug. I highly recommend it to all Aspies.
I've almost always had parakeets and fish, and lots of plants. Taking care of something else gives me value and a reason to get up in the morning.
Pursue your special interests vigorously. If you enjoy reading dictionaries, studying history, science, cataloging and organizing coins, stamps, bottle caps, cards, do it. I've had periods of time where I've researched genealogy, various islands and countries, studied moss & terrariums, created specialized facebook pages, spent time coloring...too many interests to name.
Write. Write in a diary, journal, create a blog, compose poems, make videos...communicate outside of yourself. You'll feel less stuffy on the inside.
Connect with other Aspies via the Internet or support groups. It's good to know that what you feel and are experiencing others feel, too.
