another thing to consider about is that everyone exists in relation to their environment and that a condition is only considered “disordered” if it impedes your function.

if you think you might be , don’t judge yourself on how you handle people, places, and situations you’re comfortable with, ones with routines you can predict.

instead, examine how you react to the unknown, when something doesn’t go as planned in a space you can’t predict or control. how do you recover?

autism meltdown 

autism meltdown 

@Sapphicgiraffic I try to find a place where I'm alone and it's quiet, and if I can't, I have a strong reaction that I end up ashamed about, because as a person who does not have a diagnosis, I should be able to control and handle myself and be perfect all the time

@Sapphicgiraffic this is a really good way to put it.

I tend to come off as "cool" and "collected" in my prime environment, doing what I do best, but in new environments, doing new things, I end up freezing all the time (trying to process new info) and it annoys ppl into thinking I'm "lazy" and _(:c 」∠ )_
