@lydia enough of the "mildly autistic" people i've seen go from teens to their mid twenties have had an absolute 'oh fuck, oh shit' when they have realised they are slowly reaching a point where they don't have enough energy to mask as severely as they have. for some this has been the first time they've realised how much they were masking
You aren't "mildly autistic" or "high-functioning autistic", you are just autistic as any other autistic person. If you genuinely believe those terms have merit you've sipped some allist koolaid; Autism isn't a contest and the popular interpretation of the "autism spectrum" is bullshit. It's not a spectrum of severity, it's a spectrum of potential effects and manifestations of autism.
