As I mentioned in some of my earlier posts, my autism causes me to process my emotions in a different manner than an average person. For instance, sadness is an emotion that I very rarely feel to the point in which I don’t even cry at all. It takes very special circumstances for me to become sad. I wasn’t even able to cry at the end of Titanic. However, when it comes to animals, I do tend to cry when something bad happens to the animal in question. For example, when I saw the ending of Breakfast at Tiffany’s where they left the cat in the rain, I had an emotional breakdown that took an hour to recover from. Another example was when I saw the ending of A.I. Artificial Intelligence where the android boy had only one day to live with his human mother in an experiment and would never see her again afterwards. Overall, when it comes to sensitive emotions like sadness, I rarely experience them due to how my autism allows me to process my emotions.
