I think being too empathetic is not a good thing. You can lose yourself and necessary boundaries. At some point, being too empathetic is self-indulgent or delusional.
Or worse: try to touch me
Once when I told someone I had aspergers syndrome they told me I reminded them of Abed. I don’t know if I should be flattered or worried.
Well if I am abed I hope I find my troy that understands me soon.

What sexual orientation label, if any, do you apply to yourself? Bi? Unsure…
Have you ever experienced depression that was not linked directly to autism? Yes, on and off for years
Have you ever had a meltdown in a public place that was almost entirely or entirely populated by strangers? Yes, lots of times through out my life, and my parents reactions did not help. I haven’t had a major public meltdown for a while so I’m hope they can cope better now I have a diagnosis
Did you ever attend a school for children with mental conditions (that is, in lieu of going to a more traditional school)? No, I spent most of my schooling jumping from Catholic and Christian schools. I hated school and always had trouble. I’m currently in my last two years of school at my first public school since kindergarten and I actually really love it!
Do you parents or grandparents have any mental conditions (not including Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s or the like unless they were early-onset)? Not anything that has ever been diagnosed that we know of… but my mother was adopted so there may be something on her side.
What is your favourite food? I have soup for breakfast every morning, then often a pasta for lunch (dinner changes, depending on what mum makes), I like mushrooms, Ice-cream and chocolate. I am a vegetarian.
What is your favorite season? Mid season. The weather you can wear shorts or jeans.
What are your special interests and when did you pick them up as special interests? I obsess over Harry Potter Fanfiction and have been since I was about six years old. I also have recently picked up collecting anime.
I like Supernatural, Doctor Who and Love ALL things Harry Potter. I also obsess over the fashion Lolita, and love all alternative clothes.
Have you ever collected something, such as stamps, coins, ticket stubs etc? Sci-fi prop reproductions.
What is the longest time you have ever spent on the Internet, and what were you doing in that time? I tend to collect everything. But mostly clothes and Harry Potter things. The most time on the internet, about 3.5 days? Reading Fanfiction.
I also spend a bit of time on the internet watching documentary’s anime and shopping.
I’ve come to the conclusion that at any given point in my social life I’m either a) invisible for all intents and purposes to those around me or b) fucking up.
