Hi! I work as a software engineer by the day & run my small biz, Fluffmallow, by night.
I'm neurodivegent, so think/talk a lot about mental health. I'm interested in how brains work, human behavior & advocating for social justice.

Just because something comes easy to you doesn’t mean it’s actually easy for everyone else.

Anyone else feel weird when they’re NOT constantly anxious about something? When things are relatively okay and you don’t feel like you’re drowning?

It’s such a weird feeling that my mind and body are a bit thrown and dunno what to do with themselves???

@dyani @actuallyautistic all of this. So much. I think it’s kinda like living in survival mode 24x7.

Also, I love everything about your bio 💖🥺

Me: everything is okay and good

Brain: no

Me: but why

Brain: no, just no

This story is doing the rounds again in the UK bc of # of measles cases rising all of a sudden.

I’m just sitting here grappling with the fact that parents will expose their kids to a deadly virus over possibility of them being autistic.

It’s mind boggling.

For clarity, there is no link between autism and vaccines and it been clearly debunked repeatedly.

@actuallyautistic @PenguinBlue I just learned about it this morning 🫠🫠🫠

It was totally backwards: cherry pick a sample set that confirms to your hypothesis than any actual research. It’s so gross and still causing so much harm years later.

Why do people ask how you are if they don’t wanna know the truth?!

Executive dysfunction really sucks ass on some days.

I simply can’t get shit that will take 5 seconds done.

I know how to do it. I know what needs to be done. I know it’ll not take a lot of time.

I just can’t get it done.

For those of my comrades who don't recognize themselves as being in Autistic Burnout -

Is it possible that you actually may be masking your Burnout?

I'm so grateful for everyone here who suggested books on Autism by Devon Price PhD. They have helped me immensely. Thank you all.

The more I learn about Autism, the more I am learning about myself, and the more I am feeling comfortable with myself. It's a great feeling.

I wish I'd had better support for Autism much earlier in life. But I'm glad to be discovering it now.

@actuallyautistic @VeeRat their book about laziness is also excellent and it resonated with me deeply as a neurodivergent person too
