Em went on to list the symptoms she experienced, including struggling to follow prescriptions, maps, and instructions.
She continued, “I can’t wear a hair band or scrunchy on my wrist, it makes me feel like I’m suffocating.”
She also said, ‘Everything is always loud and all at the same time. When I’m in the store I hear traffic noise, music, people talking, doors opening and closing and generally feel like the world is coming to me at 100. ‘

Em revealed that she also has a hard time completing tasks and has a hard time responding to text messages.
‘I literally can’t gather the resources in my head to figure out how to respond. Instead, I just feel overwhelmed and leave it, and then I feel guilty for leaving it, ‘she said.
Em continued, “I can’t send absolutely anything to the post office. Get the address, put the thing in an envelope, go to the post office, buy a stamp, actually mail it. NO. I CAN’T DO IT. ‘

She also said that she always ‘felt like an outsider’ and ‘spent my whole life minimizing myself in order to try to fit in.’
Em added: ‘I have two gears. Completely over-the-top, engaged, loud and passionate or huddled in a corner somewhere, desperate in the hope that no one tries to make eye contact with me. ‘
She also admitted that she “ still feels a weird shame around my diagnosis, almost like it’s fake. That I’m really just a disorganized, messy scammer who has managed to find something to blame for all of her shortcomings. ‘
