Making this post is mildly terrifying. In in the interest of actually posting it instead of rewriting it infinitely and/or adding explanations that extend the length of every sentence and never posting it, I'm going to just ignore the internal screaming and just do it. Hi! I'm Krux. They/them or she/her pronouns. AMAB. Been lurking for a while. Finally deciding to post and establish my existence. I was relatively recently diagnosed with autism. However, I have had various working diagnoses that never really fit. As such I've never looked at my symptoms/behaviours/experiences through the lense of autism, until very recently. So there's a lot that I've probably misinterpreted and definitely a lot that I've ignored, suppressed for various reasons, or have plain forgotten. I'm gonna keep reading the relevant thread and post this before I prevent myself from doing so.
