Sometimes autism is like. Had [some sensory input]? You may be entitled to [crashing & sleeping for 12 hours]

Honestly when (like today) the sensory input in question is bloody jackhammering at an unavoidable crowded waiting space (train platform), I think I’m entitled to fuckin monetary compensation as well

Haha yeah so I literally slept for 15 hours

@s0 yeah mood

earlier today i had to go to this one phone company/provider's store, because, ugh phones

it was,
* road works outside
* all those screens of all those phones on display showing some kind of animation that wants to grab your attention to buy them
* multiple people being served by the store clerks at once, so hard to follow conversations

@sys64738 “let’s make it all open plan! We’ll do our in-depth consultations with customers all in a big bright loud room with dozens of other conversations happening at once!” — statements dreamed up by the utterly neurotypical

@s0 extremely relatable tbh,
sometimes even having a single person talk in the same room as me is enough to get close to a meltdown and make my brain upset while also being very tired at the same time

brains are fun

@AgathaSorceress :blobcat_hearthug: I work at a place with soundproof basement recording studio rooms and sometimes the urge to go down there, lock myself in one and lie on the floor for several hours in the dark & quiet is strong

@s0 yeah I think it would be great if there was a way to just instantly get teleported to a quiet, dark, warm and comfy room and be able to rest there for however long
sensory overload is so frustrating,, but oh well

@AgathaSorceress “hey lemme just go afk for a bit” *i pop in to a dark quiet amorphous extratemporal space and chill by myself until fully recharged, and pop back* “yeah ok what were you saying”
