I'm tired of feeling like people see me as a rude or snobby person. I say things in a very simple or re-stated way. Any other autistic people struggle with coming off as mean?

      Yes. Less now than when I was younger (diagnosed later), but when my mask falls, people just get mad sometimes and I am lost for a second until I realize. Then I have to explain that there was no emotion behind my words AND try to calm their emotions down🙄 So much fun. You are not alone.

      Sometimes yes. People who know me understand I’m not being rude. I’ve learned not to care what other people think. (Reasons i smoke cannabis) also it’s worth noting, my bipolar has forced me to learn to filter what i say a bit, which helps.
