Please be aware that this is fictional. The party is purely a metaphor for my experience on the spectrum. Although this runs parallel to my experience, autism is a spectrum, and some elements may be dramatized for the sake of a story. This is not a work of fiction about how bad my life is, just an idea I got from a real event in my life. Thank you!

Grief never stops. She simply camouflages herself in different forms, daring you to challenge facing it, day after day. Sometimes sexy and alluring, we all enjoy a moment of self soothing, allowing what feels like release to wash over us-out of us, through tears, wails, cries, steps, stomps, dulled screams into feather fluffed pillows. Shameless, near infantile, reverting back primitively or perhaps to a state of childlike sorrow. Unable to express verbally the issue at hand, and coos and cuddles only go so far for so long. Lets face it, what are we as adults besides big kids playing pretend with our words, and having no one to patiently coddle us when we unexplainably sob.

Personality is like a charioteer with two headstrong horses, each wanting to go in different directions.
During personality classification, you might have heard people talking about extroverts and introverts. Extroversion and introversion are two of the most common personality types in society. According to psychologists, in addition to these, two less common personality types also exist, known as ambiverts and omniverts. Whenever some person asks a question about your personality type, it might be possible that you face difficulty in answering. But there is no need to worry if you cannot differentiate between the four personality types.
