 v.— «I stim almost all the time. I stim when happy, tired, excited, concentrating and overloaded. Part of being more myself is letting myself stim. if I’m not disrupting other people why should I have to stop? I don’t make loud stims in settings like that and by moving a bit away from people it was even less likely that I would “bother” people.» —“Re: being my autistic self” by natureloverchris Usenet: alt.support.autism Oct. 5, 2005.
