Why is it that when I talk to new classmates, they will assume that I’m from poly? Most looked surprised when I told them I was from JC. Is it because I speak mostly Singlish and am not eloquent? I want to explain more but I worry I may just dox myself out instead.
Tbh, I’m actually an introvert. But the problem is, I don’t look like an introvert. Because of that, I will tend to look snobby. My facial expressions are quite bad. When I try to look friendlier with some smiles, I end up looking like a weirdo or almost spastic like a comedian. Tbh, I can’t smile for nuts.
Most of the time, I will be tired by 5pm and my facial expressions will be like a guy who’s high on drugs. And yes, droopy eyes and walking back home like a zombie. Had some job experience before and my colleague even asked me if I took drugs. Wtf!
I really wonder if anyone else is facing similar problems like me. I suspect that I’m borderline on the autism spectrum. I cannot read other people’s faces that well and I become mentally tired after “forcing” myself to communicate with others. I build on my past experience to detect facial cues on others and it’s not natural at all for me.
That’s probably why I try to avoid studying with others. And possibly why I prefer to study alone. Should I get myself checked? Is UHC good enough for a check on autism?
Once, I took a practical exam and I was so disoriented with a hiccup on the laptop and had to go to another location instead that I actually got a zero for it. My brain went dead on me. I’m not sure if it’s just me or if I have serious issues. I just feel lost right now. I try to think I’m normal like others but it seems my “problem” is getting worse now.
Here are what netizens think:
- LOL I have the opposite problem, but only cuz i got that studios face ig… my suggestion is just move along. Your life is more important than this . Regarding the second half of your para, yes please go get it checked, better safe than sorry ya?
- If the problem is affecting your functioning, yes do go get a check up. You can try UHC, or go polyclinic to get a referral.
- Running improves blood circulation and releases endorphines to the head so u look more awake and relaxed.
- Go plastic surgery la, ask for smarter oppa look.
