An informal thread for all misfired and miswired women on the spectrum...,(and guests). A new thread as we can chat away but are not so good tidying up after ourselves....too busy being awesome..,,
This is a new iteration of many long and warm and welcoming contributions. This is a happy and supportive place x
Thanks Ellie. I must admit that I find this site so difficult to navigate with the replies within threads rather than going to the end and so I just avoid it when I’m tired after work.
I’m doing okay - my GP couldn’t find my completed questionnaire at my last appointment so I’m still waiting. Bar that, I’m still chugging along. I do definitely feel more autistic now I’ve admitted it to others and I’m finding I’m starting to mask less.
Hi Bonnie...I’m trying to drop the mask too but it is a challenge....so when you say you feel more autistic.....is that the same as feeling more like “you”?......it is a transition....and I think we are constantly transitioning .....
good to hear from you x
Yes I hope they will join in. Hello Bonnie good to see you. I understand the tiredness factor for joining in all too well. Yes I have found that too.. I almost feel like I’ve reverted more to how I was in younger years and yes more myself.. it’s like a relaxation from continual effort. Hard to put it into words.
Not fighting it....? Lettin* things flow? .....being less scared by the potential consequences?
yes! that's a good description....we are being more accepting of who we are and so less scared of the potential consequences that go with just letting things flow more?
You rebel you xx
