Hello I thought I'd try and find some friendly advice from a website designed to be caring and sharing, but then decided to come here instead I am quite interested in discovering if I am a sudden autistic mong, just a mong, or suffering from a ****-off tumour (or something positive like that). Let the insults commence (and I would like to call you all ***** in advance). Here is my problem...sniff sniff sob. I have some issues with eye contact and perepheral vision that are really annoying. I don't know if it is a mental disorder or something physical. The problems are: 1.) I have hyper sensitive peripheral vision, with the result that if someone is sitting next to/ near me, I can see them even when I am not directly looking at them. So for instance I will be watching TV or perhaps in a meeting, but I can latch onto a person out of the corner of my I and it produces the affect of me staring at them. Sadly it does not enable me to gawp at tits undiscovered. People find this very uncomfortable and will even move away or shield thier eyes with a hand to block me from thier vision. Sounds weird, but it's true. 2.) Normal eye contact during conversations is hard, I no longer know where to look. I end up looking directly into thier eyes and again, produce an off-putting staring effect. I have tried moving my gaze to other areas of the face (and tits), but it does not work too well, I always end up having a staring competetino with them. The result is that when people talk to me, they quite often shut there eyes for long periods or look away. Or perhaps it's just the fact that I am goppingly ugly. Interestingly this has not been a factor from childhood as you would expect with a proper mong, it suddenly happened a number of years ago in my late twenties Any ideas? I shudder to think at the potential responses. Thanks!
