    Trouble with Change

    Hello, my fellow aspies. <3 My therapist and I are trying to figure out some coping techniques for when I encounter something new/a disruption in my daily routine. In the past, I've struggled a lot on vacations, and I want to be able to enjoy those experiences like the rest of my family can...

    Sensory overload first-aid kit

    Hi there Community, So, yesterday and during the whole night I got a really bad case of not-so-complete shutdown. I'm sure many of you know the feeling. I thought that maybe we could create a topic where we would post our impressions of our sensory overload moments, as well as ways in which we...
