I’m a high school graduate of 2021. Have struggled to keep and find a job. I haven’t found anything that allows me to work the way I want, and haven’t found a job we’re the employee’s understand autism at its core. My family doest’t care to understand it as well, and decides to be emotionally unavailable for me. My voice is never rarely heard by them. But I’m just looking for something more accommodating. The past year and the new , have been the times where I have become most aware of how much my autism impacts my life, and that you don’t do well at certain things but are somehow uniquely capable at other things. I’m still coming to understand myself and how my brain ticks. I have unique specific interests. I have the ability to hyper focus on imagery or sensory stimulation for long period periods of time. But I will experience burnout and end up needing breaks. My brain will function at its highest level for an hour and need a break after. But I’m still getting to understand myself so don’t quote me on anything, because I don’t fully know myself that well just yet. But I say this website advertised on TikTok, when looking for online jobs for autistic adults. My brain like watching videos and get bored when I try to read long sentences, I don’t know why it’s always been like that. I can read perfectly fine, Ave trouble pronouncing certain words that are long and complicated. I’m only gonna briefly touch on this I don’t want to go to deep into detail.
