Sometimes when my brain is doing little anxiety things and making my heart-rate do weird things , I find myself clapping a lot or … flapping my hands? I mean there’s no other word for it.
The best is a stick though. Or a butter knife or anything like that, that I can wave super fast in the air and get a whooosh noise.

@InspectorCaracal wow, “can neurotypicals stim” is a giant search compost pile.

@aldersprig ...don't do that >.>

stimming is basically just, an action done to create a specific stimulus that helps you maintain mental and emotional stability

@aldersprig anything that autistic people do is something that neurotypical people can do too, since austism is a developmental thing and means that there are things we DON'T develop, not that there are special things we DO develop.

We're a (lightly?) moderated community; harassment is not tolerated, and doing nothing but self-promotion or advertising is frowned on.

Other than that, we welcome anyone who wants to come join and whatever language you speak! Anyone who creates - writing, drawing, game devs, crafting, you name it - is especially welcome, since we all do that kind of thing already. By a similar token, we are also a queer- and kink-friendly planet.

Special thanks to for doing the Tooting Planet art, and to for letting me make a background out of their awesome planet art.
