mental health in autistic people
is not something anyone outside the autistic community is really interested in
the way anxiety and depression and sleeping and to a lesser extent now eating issues work for me
is not how they work for my nonautistic and especially NT peers
we don’t get each other when we try to empathize
I seek out autistic people
because I struggle undertanding the way mh works for me
I wish there were therapies and workshops and even groups to go to
I would go
I would get out of my safe room and go and try really hard
I have a diagnosis but now I need to work out how to live as autistic
what is there to access for me?
can we help each other?
what do you struggle with?
