Group conversations : Asperger’s Syndrome Forum
I was diagnosed with Aspergers when I was almost 16, which is kinda late I guess, and it wasn’t really that much of a surprise except in the beginning because I had always felt different in some way but could never really figure out why. For years I noticed that my friends and classmates could easily talk to each other, talk to strangers, ask for help and talk in front of the class, while I found this very difficult and would get anxiety whenever I had to do any of these things. But if it was someone I was comfortable with, I could easily talk to them, especially if it was just the two of us. But whenever there was a group conversation, I would get lost in confusion because I almost never knew what to say or when and how I could get myself into the conversation, and often when I tried I would get interrupted or talked over, or they wouldn’t hear me. Years later, this still happens a lot, sometimes every day, where the people around me at school talk to each other and I really want to join in but don’t know what is a fitting reply to what they’re saying, or when I could speak without getting interrupted or interrupting someone else. And since they don’t say anything to me unless I say something, I often end up staying silent, and sometimes they have really long conversations where I don’t say a single word. I have talked to one of my teachers about this, and she told me to try and say hi to people whenever I meet them but I don’t know if that will actually help. And one of my friends told me that I can ask questions if I don’t know what they’re talking about or don’t understand, or I can ask them to include me in the conversation but so far I haven’t had the courage to do any of those things. I don’t know if any of this advice will work or if it’s something I should try because I have no idea really how to be more comfortable in group conversations, otherwise it wouldn’t be an issue for so long. I sometimes feel so stupid because I don’t know how to talk to people and everyone else does. I just wish I was normal. And I’m also really tired of these same issues getting in the way, and it doesn’t really seem like it’s gotten much better over the years.
