Idk what to make of it
He wrote them this- hope it all posts it's super super long?
Hey Babs, for a person with autism... You sure have have been unsympathetic and misunderstanding of somebody going through struggles obviously caused by their autism.
You know, such as not realizing it when she's barging into a conversation (autism symptom), randomly bringing up her specific interests (autism symptom), and having difficulty managing her emotions under social stress (autism symptom), and freaking out over hand washing (autism symptom). Ect. Surely you understand why she struggles with all that, didn't you deal with it yourself through your life?
I mean, Jason yelled at her to 'shut the fuck up' through our wall when she wasn't doing anything wrong and she responded much like an autistic person would respond to something like that. He also made fun of her for her past of hitting her head as a child (autism symptom) which she has sustained head injuries from to this day, which is why she got so angry and shouted back at him. Not to mention making fun of her being institutionalized for autism in the past. But apparently that's your 'last straw'. She actually got so upset that day that she took herself to the ER for mental health, which you should get as I understand you sometimes have to do this too. They decided to keep her there overnight, so it absolutely was not for attention... take it from the person who literally accompanied her there and had to deal with it. She kept crying about how she upset you when she got angry at Jason, not that you care.
You know, you're extremely socially savvy, and I've seen you pick up on plenty of social cues and participate in group conversations just fine, like the way you told Jasmine that you keep mostly quiet in the group of men; something my wife doesn't know to do and therefore suffers social repercussions.
I also noticed you're incredibly indirect about your feelings... Like putting a sign about 'boundaries' on your door or writing things on the board without talking to her or storming around the kitchen all angrily with headphones on, scowling stomping and slamming things... all when my wife was trying to have a conversation with Tylor for the last time before she moves. And the way you handled Diana when the police were there... she didn't even notice that you weren't on her side and you made her chill out, good job. Very socially intelligent.
I am impressed that you've gotten along so well with a guy like Steve. He's like the epitome of neurotypical. The guy is extremely passive aggressive, pompous, and underhanded with his words. It's pretty hard for me and Jasmine to talk to him due to our neurodivergence problems. But I've seen you laugh along with him many times, including at my wife's expense. It flew over Jasmine's head most of the time, but I'm a bit higher functioning so I noticed ;)
By the way, it's kind of odd how you talk in a baby voice on purpose and go on about how you 'never stopped being a child'. Jasmine actually struggles to do well in her adult life because people treat her like a child due to her autism struggles and actually would like to get away from that harmful stereotype.. it's interesting that you lean into it.
And how come you flapped your arms in Starbucks on the bon dance night? I've never seen you do that before at any other point for the 10 months we've been here. If Starbucks triggers that reaction in you, then shouldn't a bon dance and heavy traffic also trigger that too? From what I know people can't exactly choose what noise triggers their overload, it's just the raw noise coming in from all sides, which is why my wife doesn't even drive because of her sensory issues and had a really hard time not getting overstimulated at that bon dance. She actually put gum in her ears and it was still too loud for her.
Babs, I know the truth hurts but I just gotta tell it to you straight- being an introverted cat lady who calls herself a
witch and purposely baby talks and wants to be a child forever does not make you autistic. I believe you've been misdiagnosed. Now, you could make the argument that you're just older and had time to get better with your 'autism' struggles, but if that were the case you would have sympathy for my (actually autistic) wife, as I pointed out above and if you are autistic which I highly doubt, that would make your actions even worse because you should have sympathy for an autistic girl nearly a third of your age struggling with it after having a MISCARRIAGE (like you sadly did.)
So do all of us actual autistic people a favor and quit pretending you have a disability you clearly don't have, as you enable people like Steve and Jason and Jon to be rude to people who ACTUALLY have struggles with it. You are part of the problem with this world, and you can deny this and keep on going with the act but take it from a real person with the problem- it's disgusting, it's fake, and it's damaging. I know it's a part of your identity, but you're lying to yourself... an autistic person doesn't diagnose their cats with autism.
At least my wife is able to escape this joke and move onto job corps where she can actually move on with her life, which she has spent five years trying to get into and had to get a lawyer to because she is (actually autistic).
Jasmine didn't want me to send this message to you because she actually really cares about you, and doesn't possess the social skills to see what I see- but I see your bullshit for what it is. That's all I have to say to you, and I will not be talking to you for the remainder of my time here. It's not too late to apologize to Jasmine however, she leaves tomorrow morning.
Word of the year- NEUROTYPICAL
