Thank you for sharing this, Carly. While I may be neuroatypical, I am not considered to be autistic. I could see a few things here that even I could benefit from in small ways, but mostly I think it's helpful to be aware of techniques that may be helpful to others. I'm also of a mind that if I advocate for myself in mindful ways, perhaps I may also advocate for others in the process.
Solidarity! I know a lot of people have trouble talking about being neuroatypical (honestly this post was tough to write, just because it felt so personal), but I think the more we work together to normalize stuff like this the more we help each other.
