I was trying to pinpoint a very specific piece of info from a few different lists. I had done it incorrectly a few times already, my head started to hurt & I just couldn't do it.
6 mths ago I would've masked./1
3 months ago I would've gone for a walk. I was learning coping techniques by then.
But now, I've spent some time with a boss who knows I'm autistic./2
So I did something my instincts always tell me not to do.
I told her I was having a hard time.
It sounds simple but anyone who's different knows, it's so hard to be that vulnerable. /3
