Social explorer

It is said a lot about autistic females that we camuflage and mask. That means, pretty much, we pretend to be normal, even though it takes a lot of effort.

But my dad was exactly like that. So it’s not only females who do that.

A few months after my diagnosis I realised that I’d be better off if I made more effort to try to understand the situation around me instead of insisting on taking part.

It’s difficult to find a balance when you get that there’s something you’re not getting. I so much wish life was just ordinary again. Like, probably, when I was 5.

Those patterns together really make sense to me
