I had a meltdown today in my car because I was 5 minutes late to my Doctors appointment.. being late is a huge trigger for me. Any advice on regulating intense emotions? Recently diagnosed with ASD

      I haven't been able to regulate my emotions lately. I squeeze my hands into fists and dissociate until I can function again. I advise you practice time management, specifically planning for traffic issues, warming your vehicle, etc. You may arrive 30 minutes early to an appointment but it's preferable to the anxiety of being a little late.

One coping strategy for regulating intense emotions is to inform your friends and family about your ASD and your triggers. When you feel overwhelmed, try engaging in activities that help you relax, such as taking a bubble bath, watching your favorite TV show, or using fidget items like a spinning ring or a puppet toy. Practicing healthy stimming, venting, or journaling can also help manage emotions. Additionally, consider using noise-canceling headphones or other sensory aids if needed.
