As you enter "a world of your own". [IMPORTANT RESEARCH]

Postby CosmicWolfStorm » Wed Sep 24, 2014 3:41 am

Hello. I am doing some research for personal purposes, whereas I couldn't find allot of research nor anything that had been documented spesificly about this, it's really important for me and every response counts. (If you have something you think might be in interest please let me know).
I know that allot of people that aren't on the spectrum tend to do this as well, but especially those with a spectrum disorder.

I know allot of us on the spectrum(not necessarily everyone) tend to enter our own little world where one can think so very deeply about a thing to extreme detail, becoming quite detatched from everything going on around us, entering our own little world. I'd like to know, what you think about? Do you ever philosophize, think allot about your existence, why you're here, enternity and so on? Have you ever felt an extreme emotional detatchment from everyone around you, as you're the only person in the world due to some sort of an inability to relate to others, just feeling very lonely like that? If you have I'm very interested in listening to what you've got to say. The reason why I'm doing this is because I'm extremely afraid to lose my brother. He has High functioning autism and he's become more and more detatched from us lately, and it's brought him to tears as he is so afraid of his own thoughts, he wants it to stop because he's afraid he'll end up killing himself and others, he is afraid of himself. The first time he experienced this was when he used to philosophize allot as a child, the first time he felt this extreme emotional detatchment and just overall detatchment from the world he was eight, and he has been extremely afraid of it coming back as it got worse and worse when he grew older. The questions and thoughts that scared him was "How do I know this isn't just all up in my own mind?" "How do I know there are other people with individual thougts as I can't see what others think" "how do I know they are real", "how do I know they are not". And what else that really bothers him is enternity, he tells me thats the plot, that's what makes him feel this extreme emotional detatchment, because he feels like he has this deeper understanding of what it means. He is a fraid of his own mind. He feels as if he has some sort of further understanding of what it means, that he lives it.
From the research I've done I don't think this is Schizophrenia, I don't think it's psychosis, I don't think it's any dissociative disorder, but it DOES sound like a mixture of some dissociative disorder/asperger/psychosis. But he's afraid that because we couldn't find anything that perfectly described his situation they would reject him, not believe his thoughts were real, not understand him, cause he thinks this is all real that he just has a deeper understanding of the world and how things make sense he sees patterns in mathematics, physics, he just sees how everything (physics) make sense and so on, and I think this whole thing has something to do with his autism, because I know it's quite common autistic people develop these skills, or more common than it is for allistics.
[My brother used to detatch himself like this especially at night time where his thoughts would be come so overwhelming he some times passed out]
If you would be interested in telling me about your own experience on this please message me, feel free to make the message as long as you want. You can use my brothers story and the questions I asked earlier to help you write it? You can message me as well, you can post a reply on the forum. This is extremely important to me, and extremely helpfull.
