UK #autistic peeps: it is hot
For a good portion of us, heat is a sensory burden which can place stress on the nervous system and contribute to meltdowns. #Autism#ActuallyAutistic
Here's what you can do:
We can be rubbish at wanting to or remembering to drink enough. Carry a water bottle today. Set electronic reminder and/or set electronic reminders to drink each hour. #ActuallyAutistic

Time for this regular reminder: if you have persisting "untreatable" anxiety/depression, consider exploring and ruling in/out a #neurodivergent condition that you weren't aware of, such as #ADHD or #Autism.
The anxiety and depression aren't direct "symptoms" of those conditions BUT if you have unmet needs because you don't KNOW what you need as you have no diagnosis, this is what usually shows up in later life. It's what happened to me. #ADHD#Autism
