I wish people knew that not everyone with autism ‘seems autistic’. But that doesn’t mean they don’t struggle or don’t have autism. Blending in, even though it may seem beneficial, just makes it worse for me. Because you don’t seem like you’re struggling it’s harder to get help, and when you do an ‘autistic thing’ people might think you’re a freak. Just because I can act “normal” a lot of the Awesome Autism Watercolor Shirt. The majority of my time spent with others is literally an act, and it’s extremely mentally exhausting and emotionally draining to the point that I have frequent meltdowns when I’m finally alone and able to be myself again.

When I work in customer service my bosses think I’m the perfect employee. I’m genuinely nice, always doing my best, an Awesome Autism Watercolor Shirt… They don’t realize I had multiple panic attacks before work that. When I get off I’m so drained I go home and cry. It’s so hard to keep up the act of being a “normal” human to the point that I don’t know longer I can do this. Eye contact is a sensory input that has to be interpreted, and it can be overwhelming, especially if the person who’s talking (a teacher, for example) is angry, which makes the autistic person even more nervous and upset.

My brother is autistic he wouldn’t really be capable of logging into Reddit participating in an Awesome Autism Watercolor Shirt. His condition is severe to the point where he doesn’t have any real social skills. He’s now in his 40s so he has learned to be able to do certain things (eg tell a lie) that he couldn’t do at all younger. But he has no sort of empathy or negotiation skills. We recently realized that my husband is on the spectrum somewhere. We have not gotten an official diagnosis instead of making me feel like he was less. It was like shining a light on all his issues suddenly everything clicked into place. I love him and understand where he is coming from so much better now!
