    it can be harder to mask your autistic traits overtime

    no. your autism won't "get worse" because it's not a disease, it's a neurodevelopmental difference. as you get older and more accepting of your whole self, autism and all, you may find it harder to mask, even in situations where masking was second nature to you. you're also not suddenly acting "more" autistic, you're just more aware of your own behaviors and what's causing them

    I feel heard some older autistixs in their 40s or 50s have struggling more and more with their sensory sensitivities. But it getting worse might be more a sign of burn out than anything else....gotta not over extend ourselves :/
