Stress or Autistic Burnout

I have had times of extreme stress and have had to take time off work. Now I wonder if this was related to having autism or just being overwhelmed by stressful situations.

  • The last time I had to take time off was when there were a few things going on and it got too much. Then Covid came and we had to work from home. Since then I have been able to work from home, so if things get too much I can take time out away from people, so have been able to manage better. At the time I did not realize I was autistic.
