• Someone: But you're so normal! I've never even seen you have a meltdown!
  • Me: My lack of meltdowns are from a lifetime of people conditioning me to act neurotypical and to repress any and all symptoms of my mental disorder. I am now incapable of letting myself have a meltdown because the very thought scares me half to death due to punishments I have gotten for it in the past. So instead of that I end up shutting down instead. But yeah no I don't have meltdowns so I must be "normal" : )
