I’m going through these feelings, whenever I’m just exhausted from being me which feels like every 3 months this happens. This is how I was born and it angers me so very much that I have to fight so hard just to survive within my life, living as a low income mother in the UK. Supporting my family, I’m exhausted and expected to work regularly to look after us all. It’s crippling and soul destroying but I never stop trying
I can totally relate. Often times I feel like I’m fighting this battle alone because I’m surrounded by neuro-typical people who just don’t “get it”. It’s great to hear from like minds and feel like we’re not alone and nothing is wrong with us.
Also, I can totally relate to feeling exhausted at the end of the day and ready to collapse. I often have trouble acknowledging that this is just the way I am, because I think things should be different. I’m trying to accept what is, and have the willingness to make the best of each situation.
So needed to read this as I am in that heap on the floor thinking I am broken when in reality I bring ideas and possibilities. I see beauty in the tiniest things. I experience emotion intensely. Tears streamed down my face as I read this article. Thank you for reminding me I am not broken, this is the way I am.
This is beautiful and so relatable. Thank you for sharing with us. Your piece is incredibly comforting and encouraging.
