Stress make me more autistic.
Who would have thought it? I had such a bad reaction to Christmas as I felt stressed. Stress reduces my coping skills, and makes me feel much more autistic, just like I did as a child. It's a bit of a bugger to suddenly find I have the skills of an 8 year old when I need to be 42. At least I know what it is now, and why it was so frightening and familiar to feel like I did. Not a regression, but gives me much more insight into why D descended this summer. The stress removed her capabilities, her awareness of such would have made her more stressed, etc. how to plan a way out? For now, probably just documenting it and awareness will help.
