Update (March 2023)

I found myself reflecting on this post after listening to an episode of the Neurodivergent Women podcast about Autistic Burnout. It's really interesting to look back at my life now after getting my Autism diagnosis in 2021 and learning so much more about my brain. Hopefully this podcast episode will be helpful and educational for you, too.

Update (August 2020)

Reading over this post from 2018, I realize that a lot of what I was describing was my undiagnosed ADHD and of course I felt overwhelmed because I didn’t understand why I couldn’t get my shit together. I was beating myself up for something that was out of my control.

In the interest of self-reflection, I’ve put in bold every instance of an ADHD symptom I was experiencing without knowing.

As with all of my posts that speak in detail about my various diagnoses and medications, I must state that these experiences are my own and yours might be completely different. I’m not a doctor and I strongly advise that you seek the help of a psychiatrist and/or therapist to figure out what treatment plan is best for you.
