Were you ever asked that question?
When I first started suspecting I was Autistic, it was the most frequently asked question. "Why do you need to know? Why do you need to call yourself Autistic? Can't you just deal with your challenges without the label?" For someone who has never experienced feeling like you don't belong ANYWHERE, I can understand why it might not seem like a big deal. But labels matter. Language is important. When your stomach hurts, there's a difference in knowing if it's a stomach ache due to food poisoning or if it's due to anxiety. Yes, it IS still pain, but the way you deal with either of them will be different depending on WHAT kind of pain it is. This is why. This is why we spend money and personal resources on an official diagnosis that has the potential to go nowhere. This is why we research our brains out until our eyes hurt and compare our experiences to other Autistic's and diagnose ourselves. I owe most of my healing to this community, more specifically this account. I do the work, and YOU do the work on your own, too. But by sharing our experiences and talking about what has been kept in the shadows for FAR TOO LONG, we are starting to come out into the light again. It doesn't matter if you are officially diagnosed, if you are self-diagnosed, if you are somewhere in-between because you are in the middle of an evaluation, if you are just starting to research; please continue looking for the answers you need. You deserve to live the life you were destined to live. .

Yesterday I had the best day, I finally felt as though I finally at peace. My mind felt clear without the usual clouds that often weight me down and yet today when I woke up I had this overwhelming sense that at some point this great feeling would end, just like a holiday abroad, my happiness would never be lasting. Sometimes I find it hard to spend time in the moment and enjoy where I’m at and today I let the little voice in my head that says I don’t deserve to feel good win. Tomorrow is a new day and I will try to not let that voice takeover💪🏾💪🏾💪🏾💪🏾💪🏾

What’re your thoughts on this?🧐
-
1. “Cowering behind our disability”: Last I checked, making safety & survival a priority in a primarily ableist society isn’t “cowering”. It’s self preservation & necessary. 
2. “Let them know you have autism!”: In many communities across the globe, this is the complete opposite of safe. There is an enormous amount of history of violence against autistic people. This statement is also incredibly forceful & uncomfortable.
3. “Let them know you are proud to be you”: Again, autism is not primarily or widely accepted. Many parents of autistic children actually shut the ND movement down claiming it isn’t something to be celebrated. Doing the emotional labor is absolutely draining, painful, and NOT the responsibility of autistic people. Yes, some of us are in great environments with immense privilege & safety who are able to speak out. Don’t assume this is the case for all.
4. “Hiding & being silent does nothing but influence ignorance”: Okay this just comes across as straight up manipulative. For context, the prior statements this individual made were about making t-shirts that out autistic children in the “name of awareness”. When autistic adults voiced concerns, the blame was then shifted & put on autistic people for not being loud enough in public. Again, such an unsafe statement that it makes me sick. **CONTINUED IN COMMENTS**

An after-school routine can benefit the entire family by providing structure and lessening anxiety and boredom for kids.⁣
⁣
A good plan for what occurs between school pick up and bedtime can be flexible, but some helpful tips include:⁣
⁣
🔹 As soon as you get home, go through backpacks 🎒 and take out lunch sacks ready for cleaning, check for organization of homework and ideally set it up at a homework station. Lastly, attend to any important school papers (e.g., field trip slips, calendars and notices). ⁣
⁣
🔹 Start with a healthy snack to boost energy and focus for homework. Fresh fruit with cheese, celery and cream cheese, fresh cut raw veggies and dip, pita and hummus, banana and peanut butter are just a few quick ideas. ⁣
⁣
🔹 Make homework 📚 a first priority. Getting homework done and out of the way lessens the anticipation and dread of having to finish it.  Make sure to have a distraction free area just for homework to boost concentration. ⁣
⁣
🔹 Set aside 30-45 minutes minimum of free time where kids can stretch and unwind. This should be screen time free though. Rest and restoration are essential to healthy development on a daily basis.⁣
⁣
🔹 Get them involved in an extracurricular activity such as organized sports or musical lessons. If this is not an option, set aside 30-45 minutes of supplemental independent 📖 reading time. ⁣
⁣
🔹 Have a check-in that reinforces the family bond and contributes to positive emotional health. I like to use the peach 🍑 and the pit of the day. The peach being the most positive and salient thing that happened during the day, the pit being the most unpleasant thing that happened. Sharing as a family strengthens the parent-child relationship and fosters togetherness.

Как же трудно мне даётся даже описание «общения»!!! А уж само общение… Ладно, продолжаю (см.пред пост) ..но при этом сами говорят и делают такое, что мне порой хочется попросить у них справку от психиатра – это я возвращаюсь к асфальтовому катку, на котором я собиралась проехаться по «триаде нарушений». Я прекрасно умею говорить, я отличный рассказчик, когда мне есть, что сказать, когда тема была «просмотрена», то есть продумана мною много раз, а если мне приходится говорить о чём-то, с чем сталкиваюсь впервые, или о том, о чём никогда раньше не задумывалась, что меня никогда не интересовало, то я могу «зависнуть». Это происходит вовсе не потому, что я «тупая», просто мне нужно время, чтобы «просмотреть» тему и подобрать слова. С возрастом я научилась во всех непонятных ситуациях произносить дежурные фразы вроде «дааа, это сложно» (хотя на самом деле мне вообще до лампочки) или «я подумаю об этом». Но, повторюсь, только с возрастом. Аутичные люди не не умеют «поддерживать диалог», нам требуется время, чтобы «рассмотреть» сказанное собеседником, и часто бывает, что после этого «рассматривания», никакого смысла в сказанном не обнаруживается. Честно, примерно в половине случаев я до сих пор не знаю, что говорить или отвечать собеседнику, и даже дежурные фразы не всегда спасают. А если я веду диалог для того, чтобы о чём-то договориться или получить информацию, то очень часто мне хочется переспрашивать «а ты/вы  сами понимаете, что говоришь/говорите?». В описании «триады нарушений» упоминается о том, что аутичный человек может в момент «диалога» просто развернуться и уйти. Да, я так иногда делаю. Это мой способ избежать мелтдауна или уголовной ответственности за нанесение побоев. Ну или самих побоев) В подобных случаях в телефонных беседах я могу просто повесить трубку, таким образом избегая дальнейшего «общения», потому что в случае чего я могу сослаться на сбой связи, а если продолжу «общение», то неизбежен скандал со взаимными оскорблениями, а я терпеть не могу ни «проявления эмоций» неважно с чьей стороны,  ни споров, ни «выяснения отношений».

⚠️ALERT: I am a liar. I feel things DEEPLY and I often have thoughts about myself, others, and situations THAT ARE LIES! Why do I do this? I’m not totally sure, but I believe it to be an unhealthy coping skill that I picked up in childhood as a result of not being taught healthy coping skills.
.
.
🌀Emotional Regulation is defined as a complex process that involves initiating, inhibiting, or modulating one’s state or behavior in a given situation.”🌀
.
.
✴️FACT: When I don’t specifically target the lies I think, I am allowing them to shape the situation I’m in at the time, the decisions I make, the even worse, the outcome of those situations. .
.
⚠️Now that I know what emotional regulation IS (I really didn’t know or understand before) I am seeing it is a major issue in my life and I’m working on it by taking responsibility for my thoughts FIRST. I spoke about this realization I recently had on episode 16 (season 2, episode 6) in more detail if you’d like to hear all of my foolishness in detail 🙈 but really, who else can we blame for our thoughts? Do our thoughts reflect who we are? No, I don’t think so, but doing nothing to improve lying thoughts DOES. We can’t always control what we think, but we are responsible for our own actions & things we say. Reality is that our thoughts and feelings (or lack of) DRIVE our actions.
.
.
How do we change our thoughts? We don’t. Thoughts pop into our heads all the time and what’s been helping me is taking a step back and self-coaching (sometimes out loud like a crazy person) saying, “That is a lie.” and REPLACING the thought with a truth. .
.
Do you struggle with your internal monologue similarly to me? What are your coping strategies? Comment below 💜

THANKYOU to the wonderful @lizhoggard for this beautifully written piece about me and my son and living, crying and thriving through Aspergers Syndrome. It’s great to reflect how many were touched by this piece in @dailymail and my sons determination and bravery acknowledging the condition in order to help others open up and talk about mental health. As an aspiring writer studying Journalism at Brighton University away from home life is very challenging having experienced isolation, loneliness and anxiety but his desire to write creatively and work in TV and film makes him so focused that I am in awe and very proud. Please continue to message and share. And if you want to give him a break and opportunity by putting him in touch with Directors, writers in film then please help. It’s difficult enough in life never mind with this condition whereby you are overlooked and ignored whilst struggling to communicate, but we will fight on to get our voices heard. .

I haven't had the motivation to post (anything positive) lately because I've been having a hard time staying on one thought for more than a minute. .
.
I've been trying to find the right therapist for me and getting myself to pick up the phone stresses me out so bad. I also keep questioning whether I should even go thru with getting my diagnosis because I know how I feel, but I don't have the tools and support I need to get out of this hole I'm in. .
. 
I do feel better today and I know things like this take time, so I'm trying my hardest to stay positive.

What are your plans for this weekend?🙃

I haven't had the motivation to post (anything positive) lately because I've been having a hard time staying on one thought for more than a minute. . . I've been trying to find the right therapist for me and getting myself to pick up the phone stresses me out so bad. I also keep questioning whether I should even go thru with getting my diagnosis because I know how I feel, but I don't have the tools and support I need to get out of this hole I'm in. . . I do feel better today and I know things like this take time, so I'm trying my hardest to stay positive. . . What are your plans for this weekend?🙃 . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #aspie #adultautism #aspergers #aspergerssyndrome #autismawareness #selflove #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #actuallyautistic #Autism #autistic #mentalhealthmatters #mentalhealthwarrior #sensoryoverload #anxiety #depression #noisecancelling #headphones #stim #stimming #animals #serviceanimals #meltdown #therapy #specialinterest #sad #asd #aspiegirl #mentalillness - 6 hours ago

I used to be weighed down by these harmful constructs, but never again. I no longer feel any shame about myself or my life. I’m 25, and the fact that I’m still living at home doesn’t make me any less worthy as a human being. We’re all worthy right now, and there’s nothing that we could ever achieve that would make us more worthy. It’s all done, and it’s all right here, right now.
.

This doesn’t mean I don’t try to achieve things and improve my situation. I’m doing that everyday. I’m actually ambitious as fuck, too.
.

You know what’s made me more ambitious? Taking away all of my shame about not being ambitious enough and not having achieved the things that society believes I should’ve achieved by now.
.

The patriarchal constructs deeply embedded in our society value everything that’s dominant and powerful. The whole idea that you only have worth if you’re achieving things creates so much suffering for everyone. It leaves no place for femininity and softness.. and it certainly leaves no place for those with disabilities.
.

The anger I’ve felt for the harm created by this oppressive system helped me get rid of my feelings of shame pretty quickly. Why the fuck would I let such terrible constructs control my happiness and self-esteem?! I say ‘fuck you’ to the patriarchy every day that I choose to love myself and remind myself that I’m enough, just as I am.
