Disability, job, masking 

Now that more people have begun working at the office, it's looking less and less sustainable to pretend I'm neurotypical. I can feel the meltdowns coming closer, even with noise-cancelling headphones. It's about that time also where people start perceiving I'm 'strange' but associating it to me being foreign.

I still don't trust that it won't work against me to tell. But it's getting to a point when it's no longer a choice. :battery_low:

@aeki :blobheart: I would probably be transparent about being on the spectrum, but I'm also more reckless.

If only offices were more partitioned. Or even better, private offices. Stupid open landscape.

@aeki big mood re: masking getting harder to impossible. i relate to the reluctance to tell people, even while knowing it's not sustainable to keep working at a job where people would react hostile to that. but i get that it's also tough when alternatives seem scarce and one needs the job/income. i hope you can find a solution that works, wishing you strength :blobcatheart:
