Q:hello! hope life is doing good for you. I've been following your journey learning about autism, and was pretty interested in the stimming. Especially to music. I do that with a lot of songs, and it's funny because I feel like it makes the music better, and that I have to do it. I guess I don't know what the point of this message is, but I guess that's just something I felt like I needed to let you know :) K, enough rambling( I tend to do that). Have a lovely day!
I tend to ramble as well! I only found out recently it was called info-dumping, and that helps a lot to explain the experience of it. It’s like you have to say all the related pieces of information, regardless of whether other people (or even you) find them interesting.
Have you seen the post when speaking openly gets me into trouble? That’s quite related to rambling, and the wider approach to information that autistic people seem to have.
It absolutely makes the music better. I’ve actually had some of the best experiences of my life stimming to music, because I can create such joy by fine-tuning the experience.
It means a lot to me that you stim to music, because I’ve been doing it for so long without knowing why. It’s so good to be able to talk about it and feel validated by other people. I did a detailed post on stimming to music if you haven’t already seen.
If you want to talk about different aspects of stimming to music, I’m always eager to hear from you. I need more people to write about it for FY Stimming actually, because I seem to be the only person describing the ins and outs of the experience.
Would you be interested in submitting a post?
Have an equally lovely day!
