10 Things I Want To Tell My Young Undiagnosed Autistic Self
Young, confused about social norms, even naïve — this holds true for many autistic people. You know that you are somehow different. There is some part of you that feels confused when interacting with others. They sense it, too. Some will laugh and mock you about it. It hurts a lot, especially when you are a child. There are some lessons that you learn the hard way as you proceed into adulthood, though we often learn them after years of struggle and lots of undeserved blame towards ourselves.
I’m Autistic, But I Don’t Have Meltdowns When Routines Change
“Daily routines” — an AI-generated artwork I prepared in starryai. One of the typical traits people associate with autism is the need for repetition and routines. For many of us autistic people, routines are very important. A change in plans can wreak havoc and bring a meltdown. In some cases, I can get frustrated if something was supposed to happen but failed. But anybody else does, too, every now and then. I am fine if plans change. I do not mind if half of the groceries on my shopping list are out of stock. I will come up with something else to cook for dinner. A friend could cancel their arrival at the last moment… well, maybe that is a bit disappointing, but going to a place other than initially agreed upon is perfectly fine.

This was not fun.
Why goal-setting and task organisation apps do not work for everyone
You know the feeling, right? You want to get rid of the bad habits and pursue your goals with full determination at all times. Various apps and tools are advertised to help you with that and solve your problems. Sure, they are nice. I also use my phone to organise my day… just that…
In my own world
Do you know the feeling when you just want to be alone and not disturbed by anything or anyone? There are plenty of nice and fun things out there but yet hiding in one’s nest feels the best option. For some people, avoiding others implies that you are offended, so you don’t want to speak to them. It’s hard to explain unless you have experienced it yourself.
The Top 3 Motivational Tools That Even Your Grandma Used
I put a click-bait title, trying to slightly joke with (though not in an offensive way) many articles which provide valuable tips by using yet another magical tool that will organise your life and make you efficient, promising that it will motivate you to build new habits and change your life forever.
To my dearest human
Hey, it's me, Betty. You're not surprised that I'm speaking human language, are you? You know that I understand every single word of yours. I've watched you and listened to you ever since I came to your home some 13 years ago. I still remember how scary it was when they separated me from my mum and my siblings. Yet, I was ready to explore the big world. I was the tiniest of us, so I had to learn how to outsmart them. This turned out useful later.
