I dropped my resignation letter in the box this morning. My last day is August 30. I’ve been less than fully verbal since. Every time a member of management gets near me it’s like my throat closes. I meant to say, “Hey, gave my two weeks, letter is in the box,” but all that came out was a dry click.
I haven’t seen my therapist in a month at least and I need to.
I’m putting in my two weeks today and I am so nervous.

I have access to speech at least 85% of the time, but that doesn’t mean that during those times I am as verbal as a person without autism. Here are some examples of having access to speech while having speech trouble:
I have access to automatic speech, but not conscious…
Well this is all really familiar.Source: stimmyabby

"'My name is Robert but I would prefer that you call me Bob.' It's just like that. You know what I mean? And if you were to insist upon calling that person Robert, you would be a colossal dick."
Paul F. Tompkins, succinctly explaining why you call people what they want to be called, whether it’s “little people” or “transgender” or “chairperson” or “Bob”. It’s not about being politically correct and it’s not about you. It’s about basic decency and respect. (via ericmortensen)
#when I started mentally replacing ‘politically correct’ with ‘respectful’#what was and wasn’t appropriate or valid to say was infinitely clearer to me#because being politically correct is about knowing the secret code and being invincible to being called out#and that’s not the point#the point is that if someone experiences the world in a way that I’m not used to accomodating#it’s my job to learn how to accomodate them
I’m not on this earth to be a goalie. I’m not here to stop somebody from accomplishing their goals. If you’re not hurting anybody, I’m here to either assist or get out of the way. -Kyle Kinane
Currently the only person who can get him to nap in the morning at all. Probably just the only one patient enough to walk him down. I like it anyway. Baby snuggles almost never trip the touch issues, especially if we’re wrapped up. The pressure helps. Walking is good for me. I don’t dread naptime at all.
I’m gonna have a panic attack
I can’t breathe
I should probably stop punching my car and drag myself inside to that job I’ve been wanting to leave for 3 years.
I don’t want to think about how many days I’ve gotten through by deciding when my last day would be.
Thinking September 15 or so. Don’t want to wait that long though.

I survived driving to Long Beach. Now waiting for one of the people I’m here to see to get back to me. Gonna go find the waves in the meantime.
