This may seem like a strange statement at first, but I really don’t. With a few exceptions, I don’t think people actually understand how exhausted I am just thinking about this month.
Today (April 13, 2018 since I have scheduled this for April 14) has been completely exhausting. Just when I thought I could get away with not having to do the AMP’ed up advocacy stuff, Alpha Xi Motherfucking Delta puts a stand up in the middle of the walkway. If you say yesterday’s post, I’m sure you know how well that went.
Let’s consider my past for a few seconds. I used to light it up blue too, and even wanted to be a geneticist(!!!) despite being Autistic. But this is…it’s not different, it’s just very upsetting. I also may or may not be hyperempathetic when reading from text versus a low cognitive empathy with vis-a-vis interactions, I have no idea.
Either way, I literally have just wanted to do nothing but sleep for five or six hours but stay up nonetheless because I have one prospectus, one quiz, and one or two meetings I need to attend. That’s without, you know, my three essays being due within a week of each other, having to work twice this weekend, finals coming up, and two group projects/presentations being a thing.
When I say I am tired because of Autism $peaks, I mean it literally. I’m sick of apologists, and I’m sick of people just overall shitting on Autistic people. Is that frank enough for you?
