Why do I feel anxious and not excited?

Posted by: alisrowe, September 28, 2020

One of the ways I tend to feel most isolated from others is when other people are feeling excited about something, I am feeling anxious.

Or they might be expecting me to be feeling excited about something, but instead I’m feeling anxious.

Having autism can dampen one’s mood. For me, it’s as though anxiety masks any positive feeling. Anxiety is always there, even when I am trying to feel positive emotions. This experience is very common for autistic people.
