Adult Autism sucks. I'm having the kind of sensory overload and anxiety that I can only get out with a full blown meltdown, but I have to be a professional adult right now which is making it worse. At least when I was a kid and had meltdowns, nobody would treat me badly because of it. Some people got frustrated and my crappy parents got mad, but I never had to suppress anything for fear of social stigma. Then starting at some point in high school, instead of understanding that your emotional regulation is out of what, people start treating you like a freak when you need to cry and get all the bad feelings out. Autism doesn't stop when you hit a certain age.

      @Liz93 honestly you never learn how to deal with a bad haircut. One time I cried so much my mom called my hairstylist again asking her to do something to make me feel better and my hair got dyed bright purple! 😭💔

      I’m almost 30 and I’ve spent the last two days screaming to myself alone at home because I am so traumatized about a bad haircut I got. I never learned how to deal with this and now I’m just a screaming crying mess

          @Sydie_Bear In all honesty to the both of you, not only is that a huge mood, but now I'm starting to wonder if part of my problem is because I need a hair cut and my hair getting long is messing me up.
