any tips for moving to uni (or moving out in general) for autistics? I've got two weeks until I go to uni and I'm partly terrified and partly in denial about the whole thing because I know I will struggle to cope on my own without the structure I've had for so many years.

      In my experience, it's hard to prepare because of the unknown if how it will go and what it will be like, however, I usually try to bring everything that helps me cope that I can, then as you start living through it more you will pick up new coping/self confort skills or modify old ones to fit and build a new structure. I don't know the spacifics of your situation, however the best thing to do is learn how things effect you and adapt. Even though its hard and pretty much a crap schute, You will make discoveries as well as new coping skills! I hope I helped and I hope it works well for you! ♡

"Be proactive about a support network. Call friends and family every weekend to stay in touch. Loneliness can be a massive trigger for depression. Also, have regular sessions with a therapist and maybe psychiatrist too during this transition. Attend floor meetings and events as that's probably where you will make most of your friends. Also find a campus job or activity to help you get involved. It's okay to take a lighter load of classes if you need to. You can talk to the ADA office and get accommodations if you feel like it would benefit you."
