Getting Back to Normal
Recently I had a challenging episode of autism at its most intense level. I can't tell you how horrible it was to live in my body during that brief time, and horrible for people to be in my company too. I am sure I was helped by medication that stabilized my system. It is a lifesaver to have it, that's for sure. It frightened me to have so little control over my emotional regulatory system, but I am getting back to normal. I have to make it up to the people who were near me then because I'm not happy I behaved the way I did. The consequence of this is that I have to try getting more self control during times of stress and change.
