I was discovered to be autistic later in life, and I feel like I mask way more than ever before, yet my mask-sona is still me? Does anyone else feel this way?

      Step by step learn more about yourself as an autistic being! Accept and love yourself! Unmasking takes time especially for us late diagnosed ones! 🤗

      Yeah I just don’t know what is “real” about my personality.. it’s so frustrating

      Yeah i just discovered i am too! Masking for me is so automatic when I’m in public, i used to think it was me but i realized it’s not later. I also have bipolar 1, and my biggest fear is having a mixed episode in public, which has landed me in both jail and the mental hospital multiple times.
