[M/s 365] Sometimes Master needs Aspie self-care

A lot of times, I get told that I don’t act like I am on the autistic spectrum.  That’s good, because then I nailed the social interaction. What they don’t see is that I also have to take time off to decompress. After a particularly emotional, difficult moment last night, and a touch of home-sickness, the picture summarizes how I feel this morning. So I’m quietly sitting next to a sleeping slave Angie and letting my bucket empty.

  1. And it’s OK to need time to decompress. While I don’t often hear about “the autistic spectrum” (usually when I hear AUTISTIC it’s someone saying their child is autistic & I automatically think of Dustin Hoffman in Rain Man) so I guess I don’t know enough about autism (or I didn’t realize there’s a whole spectrum, and have always thought a person either is or isn’t autistic). But whether you’re autistic or just tired after a busy day or whatever, it’s perfectly normal to need time to decompress.


      1. At one time, I was a functioning alcoholic. Contrary to popular belief, you can be both a drunk and a functional human being. You just don’t function as well as a sober person
