So out of curiosity, I want to find out what neurodivergencies and physical illnesses most commonly co-occur with autism. I would super appreciate it if any autistic people reading this would take a couple minutes to fill out the survey. All autistic people, self diagnosed and professionally diagnosed are welcome to take this survey.
Once the survey is done, I’ll collect the info and make some fun charts to share with everyone.
Please share this survey far and wide so we can get results from a wide variety of autistic people.
the weirdest part of adulthood thus far is when people you knew Back In The Day start having babies and their personality & social media presence jst dissolves into “i have a baby”. granted it’s not all of them, but it’s weird to see someone’s feed descend into “mommy & memes” like that when you knew them before
pages 259 261 and 262 - sometimes, I like to pretend I’m not attached to floor with a chain and the dungeon I’m in isn’t just a room with a single door set high up on the wall. I like to pretend I am free to walk around and explore, and one day while pushing my fingers between two rocks something gives and a section of stone pulls away to reveal the entrance to a hidden labyrinth. I would walk down the dark path heedless of danger, thinking anything is better than sitting in one spot for eternity. Carefully making my way through the maze I would eventually find the end and my just reward. This one says money, but I’m thinking maybe a shower and sunlight and/or freedom. And if there’s a case of mineral and vitamin rich health shakes that will stop my body from disintegrating, all the better.
