for those of us who didn't get diagnosed till late, or those of us who are actively trying to "Pass". do you ever feel like you are holding the real you back? like there's basically a whole other person who acts in ways the fake you would never in a million years act like? like in my mind i...
i made a post in one of the fb groups im in. i asked if there were any connection to being born preme and becoming autistic and everyone, literally every person in the group misunderstood the question and made comments like, "i was born late and still autistic" "autism is genetic" "its only...

I wrote my main character as how i would be if i didnt suppress my entire personality. Mind you this character is based on a dream(it was very vivid and thrilling). I often dream of myself as a male in my dreams. I am also nonbinary/demi. so its not unusual that i would base the main character...

I think I may be hypermobile. Im still learning about it, but my hands and fingers range from medium to very mobile. i can W-sit, i can put my hands in pray behind my back. also it kinda makes me think that maybe my de quarvains was because of thumb instability

that moment you start to realize that you are not feeling anxious when you get dizzy in large crowds, rush hour at work, bright lights overhead, but in fact feeling sensory overload. I'm picking it up more. right now it still takes me a while to go "OH! the lights are too much, Oh! the sounds...

I was doing a lot of thinking. How my parental figure failed me as a child and young adult. How important is the status in society when you can't provide for your child's special needs. Like needing back braces, eye glasses, braces for over bites that affect the jaw, getting your child evaluated...

Tonight I had to tell my sister the honest truth. That talking on the phone makes me very uncomfortable and that it had nothing to do with her. Any one else hate talking on the phone except to make business calls?

Sometimes theres a feeling deep inside of me, a feeling that no matter what i cant get out. Its like a build up of something tbh i cant even really fully explain it myself. But what comes to mind that would potentially give me relief seems violent to me. I want to scream. I want to pound my...
