Yesterday I kept constantly switching between feeling really happy and childish to angry and wanting to self harm. I would feel like my normal self then randomly feel hyper and want to jump about. I wanted to draw something nice and take my time but I only drawed a really childish drawing cause I had to stop myself scribbling on my nice art journal when I tried drawing something nice. I was writing in my journal and wanted to scribble and I did then I felt annoyed cause I like my journal to be neat but then I scribbled more and it was fun but I was more annoyed cause I was making it even messier. Then I wrote rwaaar and wasn't too happy about that either. It felt like I couldn't control myself and I didn't know how to deal with it. Any advice???
 
Can I ask, what are the primary ways you experience your Autism diagnosis?
I don't like noise. I don't communicate easily with people in person on video or on the phone but I'm fine with writing or typing. I can be funny with food with not wanting things to touch. I'm told I'm often rude to people and I don't mean to be. I just don't act generally like typical people like I don't do things just because everyone else is doing them. I'm told I speak mostly in a monotone way. I'm not good with knowing if clothes fit or shoes and sometimes have to ask someone else. I have a toilet phobia which is apparently really common in autistic people and I hate showering though don't really know why which is apparently common in autistic girls. I don't like touch most of the time. I become attached to objects.
 
This is the childish drawing I did/pinkie did on Sunday

Me switching between being childish and happy and sad or angry I don't think is to do with my autism it only started becoming a problem when I started having more nightmares about me being raped or abused.

Can you give your 5 year old part a journal for herself? Let that part of you draw whatever it is feeling? Maybe that part of you wants to have her say in a journal too.

She has her own journal now I posted a picture of it in my diary though pinkie has decided not to pop out since I got it but I did a little picture in it and put some stickers
