    Imaginary Friends? This Autistic Kid's Bestie... Dissociation, Pt 1

    Imaginary Friends? This Autistic Kid's Bestie... Dissociation, Pt 1

    Spacing out... Zoning out... Most autists do it... to survive boring conversations, family get-togethers...

    So dissociation's a good thing, Til it starts screwing with living your life. Or sense of reality. 

    Content note: mild profanity, one bleeped expletive relating to intellecutal disability.

    TRANSCRIPT
    Know what I don't see on #DisabilityTikTok… #DisabilityTwitter?
    Talk about how the economy is killing disabled folk.
    See… Inflation isn't inconvenient for the poor & disabled.
    It's lost wages. We can't afford gas, childcare… even over-the-counter medicines. And Covid is killing our hours at work.It's hunger. Food is our largest expense after rent. General inflation is  around 10%. But our groceries? Up 40%.It's illness. Covid? Monkeypox? We can't call in sick. We can't afford it.  And we can't abandon our kids when they're sick.It's homelessness. There's nothing we can afford to rent. Corporations buy up low-cost homes on speculation… creating a housing crisis.And don't get me started on the medical crisis. Lots of places, doctors simply don't accept Medicaid. 
    Taxpayers pay for our care. Caregivers don't care.
    Poor? Disabled? Most autistics are both. AND our invisible disability makes it even harder to get help.
    I'm autistic. And I'm fighting to keep my Foodstamps… in the libertarian wilderness we like to call Indiana.
    Yay #Hoosiers.
    A side note…
    I've been homeless three times in my 70-year life. Manhattan once. Bloomington, Indiana twice.
    I have some idea just how bad this can get. 61 million disabled adults in America.
    It can get bad. Real bad.
    Add tag…

    "Look Doc... You Just Don't GET #AutisticJoy"

    "Look Doc... You Just Don't GET #AutisticJoy"

    This episode I talk aging as an Autistic Elder.
    Getting finally diagnosed at 63… only to face mental decline as I hit 70…?
    One Swedish study pegged autistic male lifespan at 53. So I'm living on 17 years of borrowed time, I guess… so far.
    If you’re autistic, love one, work with some… or just can’t figure out if you are one…
    There's gonna come a time you worry…
    Real talk. About real life.
    Cuz they ain't talking autism in AARP… yet.

    EXPLICIT: some profanity, brief mentions of drug use & suicidality.
