how do I shower without sensory overload™
I never knew I had autism until a year ago. I’m 18 years old now.
People only know the stereotypical symptoms of autism. But there is a reason why psychologists call it ASD, Autism spectrum disorder.
It’s called a “spectrum” disorder, because there is a wide variation in the symptoms people experience.
When you look at me, you won’t notice I have autism. In all these years I learned to “normalize” some reactions, because I felt like not everyone accepted people who were different.
Everyone needs to learn more about autism and accept people who are different.
Never ask someone with autism to act normal. Because when you understand how the brain of someone with autism works, everything seems much more logical.
