The last few months have felt like a chaotic whirlwind.
Numerous life events happening all within close proximity to each other.
Well, closer proximity than I prefer.
Traveling overseas to visit home.
Starting a new job.
Getting diagnosed with High Functioning Autism.
Most of these happened within the last 30 days.
So it’s been a lot to handle.
It’s kind of weird (though not really) because the busier I am the more I forget about my diagnosis.
But then things happen that bring it right to the forefront.
Things like sensory overload when unloading furniture at a busy disposal location.
Misunderstandings at work because something wasn’t said direct enough for me to understand.
The plethora of feelings when I tell acquaintances (out of necessity) that I’m autistic.
Or even moving house in general because, you know, routine.
This pretty much sucks.
But it’ll be over soon and it will be worth it.
I’m not sure I’ve come to terms yet with my diagnosis.
It’s hard to think about it in this chaotic whirlwind.
It’s brought up a million and one new feelings.
And it has changed the way some people have interacted with me.
Some for the better, some for the worse.
It’ll be good to have some down time over the summer.
