    Anticipation Fixation

    Anticipation Fixation

    Ever feel like you’re getting way too excited over something that hasn’t happened yet? It seems like your imagination goes wild and it feels great! Could it be a variation of rumination?

    Reactions to the news of something important can feel so good that the brain sees all kinds of possibilities. Pretty soon, a person can be planning their life around something that is mere speculation.

    Probably not perseveration, doubtful it"s rumination, is this a thing?

Shines a light on an experience that is more common than previously known - an autistic woman does a fabulous job explaining and sharing her thought process, feelings and interior world
