ok so, I keep seeing posts about "sticker anxiety" and neurodivergency and like,,, I JUST don't think that it's causation.
Here's where I'm coming from: Kids don't own paintings. they have books with pictures (I think it's worth mentioning young kids like to have books read to them multiple times), and they have stickers. TYPICALLY a kid can't draw as well as the art in a sticker, right? I've seen kids get frustrated that their hand-eye co-ordination isn't good enough to draw what they're imagining. SO, stickers and picture books are their art. Between the two, one of them is MUCH less durable. Eventually a kid figures out that putting a sticker on something makes it more likely to get destroyed or thrown away.
I also imagine that if putting a painting in a frame made it more likely to get demolished, neurotypical adults wouldn't do that either.
Anyway this is really hard to research because all google search gives me is offers to buy stickers about autism and such (while academic search complete gives me NOTHINGGGG), SO if anybody's done any real grown up science about this I would love to hear about it

So I have 3 more weeks of school, then a 2 week break, and then exams for 2 weeks (and then 4 more weeks of school and then 3 more days of oral exams) and it feels so weird. For 6 years I've been going to high school, and before that 7 years of elementary school or whatever it's called in English. I have no idea what my life would be like without school.
I mean, don't get me wrong, I'm glad I'll finally be done with school. I'm exhausted every day when I have to go. I have a lot of bad memories of going to school.
But the future is just... scary. I'll have to get a job (because mentally I'm not able to continue going to a higher education, because those have no support for me, and I already struggle a lot with a special education school that supports me and makes sure I'm comfortable) and I'll have to be in 'the real world'.
This change just scares me. And for so long it was far away. But now it's almost reality. And I'm both ready and not.

Me: coming to the conclusion I very very likely have (inattentive) adhd/add, but no idea how to get diagnosed
*realising I have a lot of classmates with adhd and at least one of them got diagnosed as an adult*
Me: oh great. I'll ask them for tips
*realising I also have really severe anxiety*

Just a reminder that even if you鈥檙e high functioning,
your mood disorder or neurodivergence is valid.

hey yall i have a question for my fellow neurodivergents: given that an adult ASD diagnosis is close to impossible to get on top of the need for a queer-friendly doctor to give it, what's the closest i can get to narrowing down whether i have autism on my own?
im weary of saying "self-dx" which is a personal thing, but like whats the most reliable/well-sourced method of determining your chances you have it? (specifically, i need to be able to tell the difference between symptom overlap in ADHD vs whats ASD on its own. i cant keep looking at unsourced venn diagrams lol)

Image ID: A green and purple pastel background surrounded by crystals. The message reads, There is a stereotype that autistic people have difficulties maintaining friendships. This could be because many of us have been exposed to a great deal of mistreatment and ridicule during our formative years without proper support, so our idea of healthy behavior then becomes distorted, resulting in a high tolerance for abuse. When combined with a more trusting nature we are at higher risk of accepting unhealthy friendships. Once our trust is broken we can understandably become devastated and closed off. Yet we are labeled as the ones with difficulties by the very people who have benefited from them, for too long.
Autistics are often labeled as having difficulties maintaining friendships. But in my opinion, this is not always our fault. Many of us have been exposed to so much ridicule, bullying, and abuse during our formative years, without receiving the proper support to shape our idea of what healthy behavior actually is. This results in a high tolerance for abuse and mistreatment. Combine that with some degree of social blindness, a trusting nature, and for some, a strong desire to be accepted, and this can make some of us more vulnerable to manipulative people and the wrong type of friendships. In the past, I would have a hard time setting clear boundaries with my friends and family. Once someone had earned my trust it鈥檚 hard for me to think they would ever deceive me. If I realize that they are intentionally hurting me, I am so devastated that I reach a state of complete emotional burnout. Which results in all of my emotions from what I鈥檝e now realized was callous or malicious behavior, overwhelming me. I鈥檓 forced to resolve the issue for my own sanity, which usually means ending the relationship. Then subsequently being labeled as an emotionless, heartless person who throws people away, by the very people who have benefited the most from my lack of boundaries. So ask yourself again, are Autistics worthy of the generalization we all have a problem maintaining friendships? I think we鈥檙e not the only ones with the problem. the.chronic.couple on IG
Basically an exact description of 90% of my friendships growing up. It hurts to think about.

I'm starting to wonder if everything I do is a stim of some kind.
Pacing, singing, bouncing my leg, looking at the color pink, running my hands under too hot water, staring at the sun, picking at my skin, etc. etc.
All of them evoke The Stim Feeling in me when I do it. I mean, I love a good stim but am I ever NOT doing it?

Hello! I鈥檓 just making a lil post about me!
I go by the name Bee online.
I鈥檓 happy with she/her pronouns but also 鉁╪ouns鉁 are wonderful. I enjoy being referred to with hon/honey/honeyself pronouns as they given me immense amounts of serotonin. Idk what my gender is, but I think it might be tied to neuroqueerness (meaning my neurodivergency makes my relationship with gender complicated).
I鈥檓 a lesbian! Women are wonderful. Girls.
I鈥檓 17-years-old.
I have social anxiety and generalized anxiety disorder as well as adhd. I鈥檓 also autistic!
My special interests at the moment are: cryptids, bees, the paranormal, and the show Supernatural
I鈥檓 pretty open minded in terms of identities in the lgbt community. I vibe with mogai, neopronouns, lesbians who don鈥檛 go by she/her, etc.
Cringe culture is dead. Don鈥檛 be a pissbaby.
I am in a lot of fandoms, but I鈥檓 currently most active in the Supernatural fandom. I also love Gravity Falls and She-Ra and the Princesses of Power.
So, yeah. That鈥檚 about me. I try to be a safe space for everyone, and I hate discourse. Have a good day!! :)

30 Days of Autism Acceptance 2021!
April 11th: What are your thoughts/feelings about masking (a term for when autistic people hide their autistic traits)? Do you mask? I have very mixed feelings on masking. On one hand, masking can help me in situations such as social interactions with allistics/neurotypicals, and not being ostracized in public as much. On the other hand, I really hate masking because it鈥檚 spending valuable energy making yourself palatable to allistics/neurotypicals. A lot of the time, in my experience, masking doesn鈥檛 even hide the fact that you鈥檙e different from others. Now, they just think you鈥檙e 鈥渨eird鈥 and they judge you because you鈥檙e 鈥渨eird鈥. I鈥檝e been basically masking my entire life, and it really sucks. I had been depriving myself of so much, and burning through so much energy because of it. I didn鈥檛 know what stimming was, even when I was actively stimming. Honestly, I don鈥檛 even know what parts of me are truly me, and what parts are just from masking. I didn鈥檛 even fully realize that I didn鈥檛 like eye contact until pretty recently. Who knows what other traits I have when unmasked! I still mask to this day, but I鈥檓 thinking about/trying to unmask little by little until I鈥檓 essentially not masking unless I choose to be, unlike now where I feel like I鈥檓 masking all the time even when I鈥檓 alone.
