Do You Have Problems With Moderation?

I keep hearing that people with Asperger’s have trouble with moderation. We’re either hypersexual or asexual. We talk too fast or too slow. We have eating disorders or we eat everything that we see. When we sit down to play a videogame, we end up playing for eight hours. This has to be about repetition. Or impulse control.

I think my life would be easier if I was one of those aspies who lives stringently. Instead, I’m like this giant gaping hole needing sex







and food







at all times.

It’s the same with feelings. I try to hold mine back because if I don’t they all come sprawling out at once. I’m an enormous oversharer. Or you’d wonder if I’d even blink an eye if you dropped dead.

It sucks.

I wish I had better self-control. Or rather, a better ability to regulate self-control. I think a lot of us feel that way.

I hope the gifs worked for you guys btw. I try to do unexpected fun stuff for a serious self-help website but I don’t want it to be too distracting.
