What does autism feel like? I'm still figuring that out.

Updated: Jan 10

If you're curious what autism feels like, I wish I could tell you! Thanks to alexithymia, or difficulty identifying and describing one's own feelings, autism often feels like not knowing how I feel in the first place. I've had a lot of practice at solving the puzzle, though, and it's made a huge impact on my emotional well-being. If the following mix-ups between feelings seem familiar, you might benefit from working with a Coach who can help you learn to sort it all out.
