i think i have been burnt out for a very long time. i have an awful memory and brain fog and stuff though, which makes it harder to even remember how i felt in the past, even a day back. but i think it is likely that i have been experiencing (autistic i think) burnout for a huge amount of time, maybe starting a bit after i started going to school everyday (meaning like elementary school). i don’t feel like i even fully understand autistic burnout. i definitely don’t understand how to try to get out of it, especially in the world we live in.

    I completely understand and struggle with the same things. If you can figure out what makes you happy/ passion about and try incorporating that into your life. Or even just write down the things you hate/stress you out and figure out ways to combat that or something you can do that is the opposite.
