I SENT A JOB APPLICATION TO PANERA BREAD A WHILE AGO AND I’M GLAD I HAVENT BEEN HIRED I JUST FOUND OUT THEY’RE CORPORATE PARTNERS WITH AUTISM SPEAKS NOpe NOep ENPENOPE NOP E NOPE NOPE NOPE nEOPe nOPE NEOPE NOPE NOPE N͜O҉P̢E̵ N̴OPE͘ N̡OE̷P̡
I thought Panera Bread already cut off their ties with Autism Speaks??
I’m surprised that no one has bitched about ableism and how bad it is yet. Anyway, for the three people who know me well enough, I was diagnosed with autism when I was seven. I’m not going to sugar coat it, it sucks. A lot. It also causes a shit load of problems. So I was thinking, one of the…
Sure, feel free. You can always tag them with #actuallyautistic so that other autistic people would see as well.
Researching autism for a character and relating. I don’t think I have autism, since I was with a very good therapist for years who never even brought it up, but still. I have stuff like the unusual stims, the introversion, the wandering, the noise sensitivity, but the defining thing about autism is supposed to be the difficulty reading emotional cues, right? I’d say I’m fine with that. Hm.

autism is digusting tbh i dont get how people are all “~~~~ooooo~its a gift~ ooooo~~~~~~” no no it isnt i cant even hold a fucking pen half the time because it PSHYICALLY HURTS TOO i cant make friends i cant do anything hell i have a high iq but im not smart because i cant concentrate on anything…
Being autistic can be troubling, and I know because I’m autistic as well, but it’s not -disgusting-, it’s a difference on how our minds are wired. I hope you will be able to go through your life in a good way.
Have you tried having accommodations? Or special education? Perhaps you can wrap something around the pen so it doesn’t hurt and you can also go to special education to adjust the way you study.
