thinking about a post i read the other day on quora about how "high functioning autism" basically just means "autistic people who have the capability of masking often/believably enough to be vaguely accepted by the status quo"
and how huge a problem this actually is, b/c most of these autistic folks who have to mask constantly suffer from chronic fatigue and probably have had their stims and other coping mechanisms trained out of them making it even harder to unwind when/if they can
@cinnamon I'm feeling this so hard rn
Ive been crying for two hours (and for the past few days) bc of something that apparently seems trivial - or even good - to everyone around me
I feel like I'm overreacting, but at the same time i'm so fucking tired and stressed. Actually I'm not, bc those are NT words to describe very-much-not-NT emotions. They sound wrong and like an understatement, but it's as close as I can get
