I’m told when I’m anxious, my Asperger symptoms show more, and I think that is correct. I don’t have a lot of outward physical traits. I don’t stim or melt down. I just panic and avoid anything that might stand a chance of having a negative effect, even when it could be extremely helpful. Most people I meet and socialise with don’t even know about my condition, let alone claim that they “see” it in me. I’m essentially a chameleon.

"I’m going to be glad when the lockdown is lifted and I can see my family again, but I’ll always remember the time I was confined to my flat, and how it saved me."
