Sometimes, I can tell almost instantly when my ASD or ADHD has caused a problem. Often, I can’t tell until the friend no longer responds to my texts, the feedback comes back low, the get-togethers no longer include me, and the conversation ends just as I log onto the call. Or in this case – when I get the email that I need to meet with my manager about some “concerns” that have come to their attention.
It never gets easier, regardless of my work or my openness. I am hoping it WILL be easier for those that come after me.
