Since I found that I might have autism, it explains a lot about my work life, personal history, and social experiences. Today, I have been unemployed for a few years, and get benefits to keep me housed, and safe.

In a few hours, I will be going to the unemployment office and ask about disability benefits. I now know that I cannot work like a neurotypical person might. So, understanding my clear limitations, I am asking to go onto permanent disability.

I will write about the experience after. Needless to say, I will take my medicine before the meeting so I do not have any severe panic attack, or do a mental shut down.
