Might have mentioned this before, but my mum reminded me again recently that I was tested for autism and she believes I might be somewhere on the spectrum. She mentioned this because I asked what I was like as a child.
In any case after our recent holiday in Greece, it appears she put my moodiness going out there and coming back to autistic traits of struggling with a break in routine. I pointed out that from my perspective, my moodiness was because I was stressed with work and considering what the future will hold career wise and I didn't want to go away because it might turn into a distraction from what I saw as a very real issue.
So that's what it did turn into and when it came to coming back I suddenly remembered what I needed to work out in my head so I was moody going back.
However that's just my interpretation. I have wondered what others would say in their interactions with me. I personally don't see myself as autistic although social interaction was something I had to learn a bit later than others.
Makes me feel a little odd to be fair, although I often feel odd.
