    Mask less. It’s not good for your mental health.

        I completely misread your post! I read it as you talking about masking your autism!

    I would say if you have to wear a mask you can use a face shield

    Don't wear one. 🤷

      i care more about protecting the people around me than i do about being uncomfortable 💕

    Sometimes pulling my mask away from my face but keeping it on helps but idk how effective that actually is. Other than that I go as long as I can and then run to escape, often leaving my mom in the middle of the grocery store by herself but thankfully she understands 🤦🏼‍♀️

    I also have sensory issues with masks. I would say take breaks if possible or prioritize finding a new one! I also have asthma so breathing is hard in general but having covid/spreading it to somebody is worse than anything, so stay safe!
