Hi! Thanks so much for making these videos. I'm 31 and highly suspect I've had autism and have also taken the Aspie test and passed as an Aspie! Going to get a full test done soon. About my chronic, or inappropriate laughter: At my grandpa's funeral, the religious dude at the chapel (sorry I'm not Christian & not sure what to call him), he did not normally speak English (I believe he was from South America. Anyway, He kept repeating this one verse, And he farted on me. or at least, that's how I heard it. I told my little sister and she cracked up laughing with me. My mother was furious! I felt bad & had to cry-laugh to cover it up! A previous funeral was similar, only I was asked id I wanted to see my relative and I refused and had to stifle laughter. I have a lot of laughing stories. My friend & I in 5th grade would look at eachother and laugh. I named it, The Laughing Disease. The teacher asked him what was so funny, and he said, Nothing, it's just the laughing disease.

I noticed you did not explain eracnophobia. Just assumed everybody must know what it is. Like obviously! dah. 🙄 But it is a symptom of authism to not be aware that majority of people don't know what you know.

I was diagnosed with high functioning aspergers when I was like 4 or 5. Most of these I've experienced myself. First thing you said. DEFINITELY ME. I worry about everything and overthink everything. I would think of every worst case scenario I can think of. People say I can not take a joke a lot and they tell me to lighten up. They say that I am technical about everything and sometimes I don't understand that they are joking or don't know they were telling a joke. I also smile uncontrollably. When I lie, people can tell when I'm lying because I tend to smirk and giggle for no reason. I also just randomly laugh at my thoughts out loud and people think I'm crazy. I am crazy scared of rejection. But one of my biggest fears is going up and downstairs. Especially downstairs. Everytime I go down a stairwell, I look down at the steps and go slowly down. I also look up at the stairs as well. Sometimes people tell me to go faster but I have thoughts in my head saying Don't fall down. You fell up and down the stairs at middle school. Don't fall down. I've always been slow on stairs before I fell. I am 20 years old and stairs scare me worse than spiders and guts and gore.

The inappropriate laughing for me is because I know i should be looking outwardly sad ect, but I also feel very awkward about the emotion that person is showing, and then I start smiling and I’m thinking *wtf are you doing you psycho* 😂 like this person is sad, and I don’t find it funny, but my damn face does 😐

One time in 2nd grade (before I was diagnosed) one of my classmates was telling another one of my classmates something and of course i wanted to know so i asked, they said it was one the girls' middle name so i, being curious, asked what her middle name was and she told me not to laugh because it was embarissing to her, i promised not to laugh but guess what happend, i laughed, even though i did not want to. I got in trouble and a year later i was diagnosed.

What would you suggest for someone who genuinely loves a person with autism, but feels that deep down there is no reciprocation of what they need in return from a partner. It’s like so many things seems very flowing in the relationship until it comes to true empathy, emotion, deep conversations, Making realistic decisions and actually following through.Really important things that you have to be able to work through in a typical relationship. What do you suggest When it comes to romantic relationships with someone that thinks completely different then you.when You have several things in common but yet It just feels so hard to know how they feel because they don’t express it or become Super sensitive when someone is trying to tell them how you feel & what is needed honestly and they take it as a personal attack.

I work with little autistic dudes and some kids absolutely laugh inappropriately. It isn't a thing everyone does but many kids do. It's like manic laughter, like a verbal stim. They aren't laughing because something is funny. They're just making laughter-like noises. Also I was just talking to my sister about how I'd watched a movie in a full theater as a kid, and there was a dramatic scene where someone was humiliated and had alienated his family, but he had pie dripping off of his face in such a ridiculous way that I laughed pretty hard and literally not one other person did. (So I was embarrassed and made a note of that in my mental do not do file.) Later I read that there is some screenplay with a similar dramatic-absurd scene, and whenever NT people watch it they go :( but whenever autistic people watch it they generally laugh out loud.

I have aspergers and I do get the fits of giggles at inappropriate times. Not everytime or terribly often, but I do giggle at inappropriate times enough to be noticable. However, I don't have a high pain tolerance or not that I notice. It could be that I do and I just don't realize it because I cannot experience pain the way another person experiences it, but I do not think I do. The immense fears is something that I just recently learnt was a symptom of aspergers and explains A LOT. (I actually learnt it from watching your videos, so thank you for making me feel like I was not crazy or just being weird.)

my biggest phobia is being watched on a computer. deadass freeze when anyones in the same room as me. i could be doing the most innocent thing and feel like the person behind me will either yell at me or ridicule me to death (gotta love rejection sensitive dysphoria). ive had at least one or two panic attacks because of the bloody thing. its so irrational and im completely aware that it makes no sense but it still sends me through the roof ill rock ill whistle ill shut down

I don’t haven’t been diagnosed with ASD but that’s because I’m waiting to be old enough to be privately be looked at. But my younger brother and mum have been diagnosed and both experience some of these symptoms. My older brother definitely has a lack of awareness to danger and doesn’t properly pay attention to what he says or does and this has placed him in many dangerous and or stupid situations.

I broke my toe and walked into urgent care on the broken toe. I’m Autistic The over attachment to things, also me. I’m really attached to my art supplies (IE glitter, beads, rhinestones ECT) I DO NOT see being really attached to stuffed animals that you’ve had a long time as being “overly attached” to them. they, in a sense, “grew up” with you and may have helped you through a hard time in your life.. I still have a lot of mine from when I was little. but my favorite one is my buddy, Spyro the Dragon (google him if you aren’t aware of him. he’s awesome!) and one that I made, named Boo, that I’ve had since I was two is a favorite Halloween decoration.

I often laugh when I'm shocked or feel like I shouldn't be at a certain event. I just remember when I had to go to a funeral and I smiled a barely managed to hold back my giggling. I never thought of it as a symptom of anything but more of me coping with the feeling of being out of place. But now that I really think about it, maybe there is something.

I laugh a lot when I'm in shock and sometimes when people are hurt or crying I feel I'm smiling a bit even though I'm really worried about them. So it's like my face and body is portraying the opposite of what I'm feeling. I've gotten better at controlling it but sometimes if my mom cries I can't help the smile but she knows it's because she's the one I'm most worried about in this world.

I’m a 16 year old girl, and I feel like I have asd but I haven’t been diagnosed, my friend (who is on the spectrum) keeps telling me I have all the traits of someone with asd but I am too scared and anxious to go seek help or go to the doctors. Do you have any tips or pointers as to how to overcome this?
Mandy's Mashups 3 months ago
Do you think that maybe we can withstand pain easily because we assume it's part of X process we accepted doing so the brain simply ignores it because it makes no sense to be bothered by something you wanted done anyway? I think it could be rational that way. But still, checking the opposite would be useful, do you feel like you can make you feel sick or unhealthy just by seriously believing something is wrong with your health?

I get attached to things and sometimes it sucks. Stuffed animals are a big thing for me and if I loose one or something happens to it so I have to throw it away I could never buy a new one, it would feel like betrayal and it wouldn't be the same one in my mind. Luckily I haven't had to deal with that. I also get attached to some of my clothing, especially t-shirts. I have stuff in my closet I haven't been able to wear in years, because I just can't throw it away. And when I get something new, I often carry it around on the day I got it

I do giggle when I am nervous. Or when I let my thoughts run wild and they end up on something funny that makes me laugh even if I am on the bus or somewhere else in public where it makes me looks strange. I understand what you mean about having anxiety and also lack of fear/awareness at the same time. I think there have been times I have put myself in a dangerous position because I didn't think it through and only afterward realized the dangers.

i definitely laugh innapropriately. like when my dad was mad at me or when my mom was crying. I honeslty think it's partly being nervous but i don't always feel nervous when i do this. and it's not like me forcefully laughing when i'm nervous. it's me uncontrollably laughing.

I'm extremely late for commenting, but regarding getting the tattoo - is it possible that you're able to separate the 'you' from the 'body'? I compartmentalize to a point that would be considered dissociation. I can observe my experience, while filtering the physical /emotional impact. Thank you for sharing your experience and insights ♡

Personally, i am generally a very happy and giggly person. (or at least i was) this was because as a kid, people would compliment my smile~ and thus i started using it in every single social context imaginable, to make people happy and morecomfortable around me~ (aka, to like me) which would lead to inappropriate giggles. as i would naturally giggle in all situations, not understanding the full extent of the seriousness. or simply giggled due to habit. Although I am not the constantly giddy girl i used to be, i still smile or laugh in inappropriate situations. like when someone messed up in a play, or something bad happens(that isn't life threatening), or when someone younger than me is acting mature, or even the most popular one: when i need to be taken seriously/am trying to say No. I tend to blame this all on my conditioning, but if it is an aspy symptom, maybe it's both? Who knows~ Either way, whenever i do, it is never acted out on purpose. and are usually but a reflex to the specific scenario. and is very normal for me to regret it afterwards as well, leading me to cry in my head for what i did. But i am getting better at it, which is good~ and i sure hope that others can find ways to be better with it too!!!

Sometimes I do stupid things while not noticing the danger. I'm often anxious and stressed, and my mother tells me I panic and over think things too much. On certain parts of my body, I have a high pain tolerance. I had an attachment to a soft red pillow. I would cry on it, sleep on it, lay on it. I also have trouble expressing empathy when I feel it. I even just have trouble smiling when I'm having fun. I feel so fake. I end up grinning or laughing at the wrong moment. Even at sad parts I know are gonna happen, I try to not laugh, but idk why I laugh. I might actually be autistic. I used to be afraid of the spider web, NOT THE SPIDER. People didn't understand it, but I think it was a sensory thing. Just the weird feeling of the spider web, poking it, and it stretching, or the feeling of one getting caught on your face. *-shudders-*

Attachment to inanimate objects is so relatable. I'm better with it now, but since I was a child I have been eating in the same spot in the kitchen. And I always have to make a conscious effort to not wear the same clothes over and over again. Because I get used to the feel of a type of cloth and it's hard for me to start getting used to something else (as an adult I just buy everything made from cotton, or multiple color choices of the same shirt). I have my own fork, my own teacup and I can't use other's. And I won't even go into me getting super attached to TV series or manga, or like a character, or a song. Irrational fears are relatable too. I mean, I'm afraid of spiders and that is something I can explain to myself and others. It's a common fear. But me being so afraid that I start to panic, my pulse quickens and I'm about to faint. Is when I see deep water. I can't even look at pictures, not to mention videos. I had to once Google Marianas Trench and had to take a 30 minutes break to calm myself. Fortunately I have very poor visual memory.

I am emetophobic. Mine stems also from being forced to see doctors I didn't like as a kid. And I have a strong attachment to my car, and I always wear a minimum of two Chinese made garments a day. And that's not a pair of socks, that's socks and underpants or socks and a shirt, and the like.

I definitely do have the strange lack of fear to certain dangers. I always have to watch myself when I cook or I can accidentally plunge my hand in boiling water or touch a hot pan. One time I almost got hit by the rear end of a bus and didn't even blink when it happened. I actually remember being amused. And I do have random phobias, like extreme fear of being electrocuted which is why I hate thunderstorms (other then the horrible noise, of course).

So again thanks often the best sources for information are those with the experience.

i do laugh and/or giggle quite a lot in inappropriate situations. i remember one time a boy was crying about his dog dying and i almost burst out laughing (and really scolded myself for it). i also have super weird and intense phobias, like one of microscopes (it doesn’t have an official name) and small bugs (it’s irrational because instead of being afraid of them biting me, i’m afraid they’ll crawl in my mouth, nose, etc). thanks for this video!

Being attached to objects. the story of my life
SBS man 4 months ago
Severely autistic as a child adapted well in my teens then drafted into the Viet Nam war! The word Autism did not exist nor a diagnosis but I did have a chance to test my fear/anxiety responses. Looking back I surely saved many lives by my ability to compartmentalize my fear/pain, move it aside long enough to calmly make life saving group decisions, something tested many times later in my life. I was able to even nervously laugh about someone's death, even though greatly affected, needing my way of handling stress. Obsession with objects the warrior's pastime, keeping weapons and body working well relaxed. Fearless in life threatening situations feeling no pain no problem ~~ Invite me to a party with strangers and I would sweat for weeks worry about what to wear and who to be, then probably not go.….somethings never change!

Another thing, I can't remember if you've mentioned it before, but there's also struggling to pick out speech and control the volume of your voice when there's background noise. Also, having difficulty recognising faces. Just a comment on phobias, anyone else have a real problem with everything about lighthouses? Or is it just me being irrational?

Number 4. At funerals & when people play musical instruments, I spend the whole time trying not to laugh. Also, the words cave and sand make me laugh so hard I cry. It sounds like I'm trying to be quirky, but I don't understand why those words, either. The thought of the social punishment as people watch in dismay as I cackle on my own, for no reason, just makes me laugh harder. Honestly, it's difficult and embarrassing for me. I'm actually a fairly calm and mature person otherwise.

I found it very interesting when you talked about autistic people having irrational fears. When my mom was in high school, she babysat a non-verbal autistic girl who was afraid of feathers. Whenever someone put a feather in front of her face or whenever she saw a feather, she would immediately look away. So yeah, I thought this video was really cool. :)

I laugh when I'm happy, when sth is funny, but also when I'm nervous, when something unexpected happens and when sth is just weird. And I was often told that laughing at this moment is inappropriate. I even managed to laugh at an extreme sad movie (german title: Aus dem Nichts ) SPOILER ALERT!!!: in the scene where the main character is building a bomb out of things laying around with quite a symbolic meaning in the movie. Building a bomb out of happy memories before the time everything went wrong. This just seemed funny to me AND i didnt expect that to happen And I smile and maybe giggle when I have to tell sb a bad news and I'm nervous and don't know how to react. And yes, this bad news can reach from just a normal illness to a death (I'm glad I and the person I was talking to didn't know that person who died (she was in my school but I don't remember having seen her), the message was more the way she died to prepare the person I was talking to for a mail sent to everybody in this school). I'm not diagnosed with anything so finding this as a symptom for whatever kinda creeps me out now

Inappropriate laughing and giggling happen when I'm nervous. Also fear while I'm not afraid of the dark my grandmother lives in the middle of nowhere when I have to go to bed I prefer a night light, and I will not have my body hanging off the bed and I lay in the middle of the bed so nothing grabs me from under the bead, and I have the blanket pulled up to the top of my head incase someone/thing comes in the room. This only happens when I visit my granny's house and this still happen and I'm in my early-mid 20's.

Speaking of pain: I went through labour pain free and quite ok with it, was doing ok, in my mind I had separated myself from my body and was breezing through it until the nurse went histerical and made me open my eyes (I guess I looked unresponsive). Had a horrible birthing after that. That was 26 years ago. hopefully things have changed since. Btw.I have an amazing aspie daughter as well that is a beautiful light in the world. :)

I'm anxious but I also have like no sense of self preservation, like we were driving and a car pulled out in front of us out of nowhere and we seriously could have died and my mum was freaking out but I like meh, whatever. I'm also good with pain, I accidentally sliced off a huge flap of skin as I was (recklessly) shaving my leg was a new razor 🤣 and I just watched the blood pour with zero fucks given I don't know if it's attachment but if I drop my phone or step on something I apologise to it. Fucking weird I know, like oh sorry phone I didn't mean to drop you whyyyyyyyyy? I laugh when I'm nervous, definitely, a man approached me on the street, swearing shouting calling me names he was clearly unstable maybe even dangerous and I just laughed. Like what? I also have a phobia of mosquitoes, so much that I was scared to even type that word just now 😅

This is exactly me, everything you’ve brought up is what I’ve been like ever since I was about 5/6 years old. My mother always used to shout at me and told me to stop being difficult, she used to beat me because I’d cry about not wanting to go to school as it scared me. This went on all the way in to my teens and I remember having a collection of ornaments that I’d keep perfect on my shelf and if I did something she thought was awkward or difficult she’d get extremely angry and throw everything off of my shelf, I remember on a few occasions she said to me that I had no love or emotions for people, only for my ornaments, which hurt me deeply as I really care about people but I just find it hard to show at times, I think as I’ve gotten older I show my emotions more, but that could be to do with the fact that I’m now very anxious and anxiety filled from years of suffering and not knowing what is wrong with me that I now cry a lot. I’m now 30 and I still struggle and feel odd compared to other people.

I hurt my ankle a while ago (in crutches for almost three months and needed physical therapy) but when the initial accident happened, I didn't feel any pain at all - but I was screaming and crying because of the sound of my ligiments and tendons making the sound of what I thought was breaking bone. They thought I was in pain (and I was screaming too much to be touched/moved) so they stuck a needle in my arm (which caused more screaming and I almost passed out) and doped me up on pain killers. Once the high kicked in I just started info dumping and I don't really know why tbh? But it was pretty funny apparently. The paramedics couldn't understand a word I was saying because my speech was super slurred. But yeah, almost every time I get hurt i don't cry from the injury but the pain of the noise.

I have a high pain threshold. As a male Aspie, I experienced bullying (physical assaults by my peer group). I suspect my high pain tolerance was a coping mechanism to physical torture. I have a lack of a sense of danger, which some would define by the phrase, that I am very brave. To survive as a male Aspie without being broken, I think it is necessary to be able to look death right in the eye and not flinch a muscle. I am aware of many of the drivers of fear (thousands of them) and phobia but I do not let them define me or control me. I am 70 years old now and still ticking.

I am on the spectrum and I have always had a probem with not being able to pay attention to others when they are talking/ being hyper focused or absorbed in my own world to the detriment of other things including school, relationships, and hobbies. As a young adult I used laughter as a coping mechanism. I bascially learned to imitate a lot of the core values and beliefs i admired in others as a young person, and that evolved over time leading to some awkward situations where i found myself disagreeing with people based on habit and tradition, but i actually agreed with what they were saying whole heartedly and I wanted to adopt similar views. I actually now wanted to agree with them. Instead of embracing my vulnerability (I didn't quite realize thats what was going on back then) and admitting I had believed something else up until that moment, I pretended i was joking , or that the behavior was faked, or that i was being silly. So I ended up unconsciously crafting this witty, dry, humorous, cyncical, resentful, sarcastic persona with repeated situations like these combining with my sanguine with this really persistent and insistent need and driving force from my ego demanding that I keep up this face and persona. My sanguine was overpowering my phlegmatic, melancholy, or choleric tendencies, needs ,and opinions. This manifested in how I dealt with my own losses, struggles, and tragedies. It affected how I interacted with friends, clients, family, acquaintances. I would laugh anytime i was nervous (a lot) so people would be talking and i would laugh so much sometimes - and sometimes it was really inappropriate. For example, one time, at the end of a long house party when i was younger, a couple close friends were remaining around 4 am. it was a cool, close crowd. loved those people. We started trying to figure out the time and i was wrong, but i said i was close and laughed. My friend said I had a dirty mind and that I laughed whenever i felt nervous or uncomfrotable. it was funny but pretty spot on - i immediately resonated with what he said and felt like that helped me understand a lot of experiences i'd had up until that point. I struggle with isolating myself too much, but sometimes when I'm around people I feel like I HAVE to talk, and I talk too much, and it makes everybody including me uncomfortable but it's like a terrible trainwreck you can't turn away from. We just embrace the crickets. I also am practicing expressing my fear or anxiety roots in the moment. Saying it out loud really empowers me and allows me to recall any times where I felt like I needed to be something I wasn't, or present a happy face, or be something inauthentic to achieve some sort of goal. Then I can choose to think or behave differently in that moment. It takes so much work and practice - but it's fulfillinf for me and it's led me to a fulfilling life and good people. So Im thankful even though I definitely still sturggle with laughing too much. Alternatively I can isolate myself away for really long periods and avoid people at all costs. It's my own special quirky personality! Woo! There's lots of little steps we can take to practice being more present and aware in each moment instead of feeing overwhelmed and compelled to act when we feel discomfort or when an old habit comes knowcking. It can take more work but I think it's worth it! At least it's been really helpful and fulfilling for me.

I have over and under reaction to pain. In general if I find myself kind of walking into something rather hard or when I've come off a motorbike 3 times, no bones broken, but you do hit the ground rather hard. It hurts but not as much as expected. I get up and walk away from that and it doesn't affect me as badly as surface pain from a cut or graze. Even when I came close to breaking my elbow. It was sore, but not like the finger that needed 2 stitches or the time I cut my hand with my sword I was practicing with in my Ninjistu class. i nearly wanted to pass out from the pain.

When it comes to the first item, I always over analyze things when it comes to social happenings and I almost usually listen to those thoughts. As for the few slip ups, those are the times when it feels like doing it would be a good deed, but it is actually a shitty idea. For example, I once loaned someone $40 because he needed gas money and he promised he would pay me back by Friday with interest. I originally thought that I was totally hustlin' back there, but pretty much everyone I told was like: what the fuck did you do that for!? Within a few days of his supposed pay back time, he had gotten arrested and based on his demeanor and how his friends were, I pretty much knew that he was caught with illegal drugs.

Hi can I talk to someone in the comments ? Someone who knows about autism please. My family would never take me to someone to get professionally diagnosed but I have always had a feeling that I've been different. A bit weird and odd. Recently, I've started thinking and realising about what I do actually do without realising it and I just want to know if it sounds to you like I have autism / aspbergers. 1) I love words and the way they flow when you look at them. The curves of a c and the flow of an l. I subconsciously write them with my finger on my skin when I'm bored. When I see an interesting word or hear a nice sounding word, I will trace it onto my hand or pants. 2) I always have to be doing something. When I'm reading a book, I can't seem to keep my hands still. Sometimes, I can actually. But most of the time, i cannot. 3) I notice car number plates and road signs and advertising words. 4) I get so agitated and stressed about something (like the cushions not being right on the couch) and it annoys me so much that I need to go to the loo? I've not done this in a while, but I still get stressed and really annoyed. 5) I like listening to words and names and making things up in my mind. 6) I love textures and the feel of things. I used to have a cat, and I would go and stroke him paws for 10 minutes at a time just because they felt nice. 7) I'm an emotional person about stupid things. For example, I would really love a dog but cannot have one because my parents won't allow it. My cat dies 5 years ago. It's been killing me not having something fluffy to hold and something to look after. So I asked for a hamster. They've said no and every time I see something small and furry, I start crying because it's reminding me of what I can't have. I know this is stupid and I feel like I'm being an attention seeker but I just can't seem to stop. I really don't know if this is all normal and I'm making a big thing out of nothing but I would love some 3rd person opinions. This is the first time I've written it down. Thank you.

Hello! I have a similar illness, Schizotypal personality disorder. Many symptoms between stpd and autistic spectrum illnesses are nearly the same, but also many are so different! I wanted to make a video with someone who experiences autism, to make the best first source examples what is different, what is similar, and how to different it. Would you be interested to help? Hugs, Dee

Anxiety! Go outside the house! Me: AHHHHH!!!! Another issue. Lack of danger for me Brain: Oh look i need to cross the road a car is coming. I can do this!! -nearly gets ran over- This is what it's like for me to be honest, and saying my anxiety and my fear are two different things gets me a lot of confused looks. Thank you for understanding ^-^!!
