q for my autistic gworls

Oct 8, 2021 by mathboy9
when do you tell people you're on the spectrum / do you tell people at all? i feel like im decent at 'masking' it but there usually comes a point in my relationships where i get comfortable enough to stop caring about appearing "normal" but i still never tell anybody about my diagnosis out of fear that i'll be ostracized for... whatever reason. i guess i just don't want to be seen as any different?? but at the same time... i feel like im exhibiting behavior that makes sense if ppl know im autistic but comes off as weird if i assume im neurotypical.  im much better at being myself online but im terrible with non verbal communication so i come off much worse in person LOL

this is not the right place to ask this but this is my largest soapbox and its something thats been on my mind. even if you arent autistic any advice is appreciated but i dont think ive ever addressed a question specifically to the community and i know theres tons of us on here cause we're all socially awkward!


I relate on the Neurodivergent aspect and not wanting to be outcasted for not being able to always be up to "societal norms". I don't quite have advice though love, I'm sorry. I hope someone can give you an answer <3 Remember that you have worth and you're extremely talented <3

my brother is too deep onto the spectrum to even acknowledge that he has something, if anything my parents and I are the social life for him, but I hope we can get him to go further

If they ask. Many times I haven't had to tell anyone. They already know.
