Things that overwhelm me

Definitely 7 and 9, and to a lesser extent 6.

    Everything on this infographic (except examples 1 and 8, to a lesser extent) overwhelms me. Examples 4 and 7 were the cause for a lot of my meltdowns as a kid, and they still really frustrate me.

    Something that I'm interested in is why "repetition" overwhelms some autistic people. I've heard other autistic people say they hate it, but I personally love repetition.

    I'm overwhelmed but that poster lo. My brain is goign into a loop trying to figure out how to answer, in short most of these are a fact depending on the circumstances.

    4,5 are always the case
    3 is pretty much the case, but it have done work to give that appearance of doing, it, but I default to avoiding it when is a social situation I can't control, or am overwhelmed by.

    7 definitely executive dysfunction prevent this for a lot of things, yet somehow managed to become a programmer, whcih can exhausts me at time, yet nothing it better for tedious, intricate an repetitive tasks.

    Dexterity is ok, but my hands can sneeze up and I can randomly drop things.
