I hope it helps. I guess for me since I have my service dog that in itself draws attention and signals I may need extra help or act in odd ways. Like with anything it's about weighing the pros and cons. Is the anxiety surrounding having something more visible to identify the disability worth the extra help and understanding it may bring? For some folks the answer may be no. I know for me it just depends on the situation. I don't take my dog everywhere and it just comes down to what is best for her and what is best for me in each individual situation.

Please do not give me virtual hugs unless you are only using the hug function on threads. Thanks.

You can't always keep it separate.
This is happening, this is part of you.

I’m thinking of adding more communication cards to my lanyard for the things i usually can’t say. Things like ‘i need a break’ to show when group activities get too much, ‘this situation makes me anxious’ ‘can i have some help’ ‘can i have some space’ ‘i need to talk to someone’ ‘i’m not good with eye contact’ ‘i can’t cope with this situation any longer’ Things like that. I know it’s personal but does anyone have some suggestions of what might be helpful to include?

I put it down on paper and then the ghost does not ache so much.
