I wrote this in the wake of the Nick Starr-Street incident.
It’s about the time I yelled at a black high school girl, and how being #ActuallyAutistic isn’t an excuse for being unaware of your own behavior.
I wrote about needing time. (CW: There’s some medical/surgery references in here, too.)
⚕️ Medical scans, uh-oh, stimming
I wrote about reading my computerized axial tomography results, flapping through words like “malignancy” and “probable”, and waiting to hear from my primary care physician.
🧠 Autism, birdsite (blog)
I wrote about leaving autism-Twitter, in an act of self-care.
🧠 Autism, empathy, conflict
A thing happened at breakfast out the other day, and today I suddenly realized something about one part of my social anxiety.
Do hashtags get picked up if they are behind a CW? Because I’d love to know if any other #ActuallyAutistic people have had any snags with hyperfocus causing them to not properly get to catheter maintenance tasks when they ought to. 😶
