Is this autism?

Posted , 3 users are following.

I move very weirdly. My hand movements look abnormal, even my facial expressions (especially when I smile or laugh). Sometimes I look at one thing and it looks like I'm looking at another. For example, I'm watching tv and the person sitting next to the television thought I was staring at her. One time, my eyes rolled upward involuntarily because of too much light from the sun (it also happens when I can't remember something and trying so hard to remember) and somebody thought I was rolling my eyes at them (even got angry with me). Another time, I was admiring my friend's hairband so I was looking at the top of her head and she asked me why I was looking at the sky (her tone was implying that I was seeing something that's not there). I'm also extremely clumsy, suddenly knocking off utensils when eating or always losing hold of something like my phone or even unintentionally bumping someone when getting out of a public vehicle even when it's not crowded at all. I also can't look people in the eye anymore when talking to them but it wasn't always like that.
