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?
