I'm having meltdowns/shutdowns daily at the moment and it's impacting all aspects of my life. I'm trying to recover but I'm not recuperating enough before I have to return to my life responsibilities/ day-to-day functioning. I can feel my partner starting to get frustrated with having to deal with me during this burnout. They're normally really great and supportive but understandably this is affecting them as well. I feel overwhelmingly guilty whenever it happens and don't want to involve them. I don't really know what my aim is by posting this, so make of it what you want.

      Hey, you are definitely not alone in going through this. I’ve currently been in what seems like a long burnout and have been going through it daily. Seems like everything is spiraling. What I do is write about it, color in my coloring books, watch something comforting to me or listen to music that makes me feel something

      I'm exactly the same right now so I hope it helps to know you are not alone I also didn't realise I was autistic till my mid 20s an finally at almost 31 I'm seeking a diagnosis. My best advice is avoid people an situations that make your meltdowns an shutdowns worse. Eat, an drink enough an engage in your special interests. If possible wear sunglasses inside the home an sit in a dark room. I also find my lava lamp helps an writing a list of why I'm overwhelmed. I hope you feel better soon ❤️
