My Face Says it all today..

I'm not feeling *that* bad, physically. A little weak/sore, and rather sleepy/tired. I don't have my #narcolepsy meds until tomorrow so I'll end up napping at some point... But I can move around and I did get some things done today.

I'm mostly frustrated because I can't drive. I need to get to the store, but my husband is away and even if I had a car, I can't drive because aside from being terrified, I'm not sure I could do it anyway.

There's already so many noises and other big sensory input being just a passenger, actually controlling the car would be too much, I'm sure. I never learned, originally because no one wanted to teach me. But every time someone has tried since, I've had a meltdown/panic attack and had to stop very shortly into the lesson.

Most of my friends live too far to come here and take me, either. I hate that I can't do some things others can do easily.

Usually I wouldn't change anything about my #Autism . Usually I'm fine with it. But certain things like this get to me, especially because they get in my way of being independent. I should be patting myself on the back for accomplishing so much housework in the last few days, but instead, I'm stuck chiding myself for not being able to drive.

The Limits of my Autistic Body - Relate? #MentalHealth #Autism #CheckInWithMe

For a Autistic person 16 hours can just be like doing 30 hours a week at work. Frustration #MentalHealth #Autism

I can be very active like 10k running, hours of walking, shopping till my feet hurt xx
I can reach my limits and need to put stuff on hold for a week or more and others could be just few hours rest day or two. #time #CheckInWithMe
