Autism - Emotion
I do not know if this is something that all autistic people go through, I know for me I struggle with getting seriously emotional. When I get emotional people think I am weird because their response to the same situation may not be the same as mine. The most recent thing that I have been struggling with is the fact that I let my landlords down.
Since Christmas I had had problems with my health and my home care of the flat was ignored. Unfortunately, we had a rodent problem within my block and when my landlords came to check out the situation in my flat it was a mess. I was so ashamed that I had let it get so bad. I love my flat, I love my landlords, and to see the let down in their messages to me honestly, I was devastated. I am not good at social things and I can miss social queues so when I can read the sadness in their texts and the frustration honestly you know you screwed up.
But you have to make it through the bad times and hope for the best. If I can hold off until June 29th, I will be able to apply for social housing and, maybe some form of sheltered housing where I can get extra support with maintenance.
