My coworkers keep asking me about very obvious autistic traits I have and why I do those things (not in a judgmental way... usually), which gives me anxiety for some reason. I think I've become painfully aware of the fact that I can't mask as well as I think I can, and realizing that is somewhat upsetting. A couple of my coworkers also laugh at me a lot, give me weird looks when I talk to them, and whisper to each other when they see me which is making me uncomfortable.

Two weeks of... Hmm...
Getting better I think. I hope. But why and which?

Best I enjoy this week. Or day.
And plenty to do today.

I am sorry to hear that. I also don't feel like i fit in my workplace and people look down on me.

I don't like life much at the moment. I feel like my life is a waste.

The people that are treating me weird are younger cis dudes, so I'm not too upset by it, but its very juvenile and I don't enjoy that behaviour.

I also am sorry to hear that you're not liking life much right now. I'm hoping things improve for you, and that you can find something that gives you meaning. :heart:

So much for enjoying the day.

I ended up falling asleep at 3pm yesterday. Woke up at 6am the next day.

I even had a coffee that morning.


Then had this weird dream within a dream where I woke up in a hotel. Then I woke up in a weird version of my old home. Then woke up in a different version of my room and calling my mom out before waking up to the real one.

The heck..?

I'm staring at an acoustic guitar and a sitar here in my house.
Wondering if I should even consider trying them.

... In which like how mirror writing is treated.

If it's deliberate and done in practice, it is an additional artistic skill.
If it's involuntarily, it's a symptom of a neurological issue.


Perhaps the same can be applied in focus.

If it's deliberate and useful, it's a life skill that would do well in work ethics.
If it's involuntary, somewhat selective, and detrimental, it's a sign of executive dysfunction or dysregulation like how ADHD is.



What else can be applied the same with?

You'd think there would be less mass shootings now because of Covid due to there being less public events, but if anything they've worse, especially in the US. We even had a mass shooting here in Nova Scotia in April 2020. Actually, the shootings are possibly more common now because of Covid. The Covid pandemic has destroyed the entire world, and it wasn't exactly wonderful even before then. We should just all learn how to bend over and kiss our sorry butts goodbye.
