I have a question for fellow autistic people. I have an adjustable colour changing light in my room and I can change the brightness and I've noticed that sometimes the same level of brightness and stuff is sometimes too dark and sometimes too bright and I was wondering if anybody else can relate? idk if my exhaustion has anything to do with increased light sensitivity or not 😅.

    i relate, it depends on my mood, how overstimulated i am, what i’m doing, etc

    I totally relate! Sometimes the brightness is way too bright and then other times it hits me just how dark it is and it’s the same level. Our brains handle the same stimuli differently depending on a lot of factors including if we’re overstimulated, in pain, mood, etc.

    I have the same item or at least same type. I change it regularly for what my needs are but yes they are always changing. Fortunately anyone else in the house can see the patterns of the light color/intensity and my state of being
