I was recently diagnosed with ASD (18yo) and have realized I have been masking through most of my life. Any tips on helping to unmask more often?

      I realized recently that I’ve been masking my entire life as well. This is what has helped me: Talking to/surrounding myself with other neurodivergent people, doing deep dives into neurodiversity, trying out different stim toys, wearing ear protection, info dumping, and taking breaks specifically to stim.

      Just try to be yourself around people you trust, whatever that may mean. For me, it’s stimming all the time, and talking about my obsessions 💜
