I saw a TikTok recently where somebody talked about the long-term effects of masking for autistics. Basically, she mentioned how she had symptoms of an autoimmune disorder and would constantly have to miss work or school because she was getting sick. After she got an autism diagnosis, she started to realize that her body was sending her stress signals and she wasn't listening. And she was making herself sick by masking 24/7.
