Women with Autism Tend to Struggle with Social Skills
Autistic Women May Have Meltdowns
People Don’t Always Understand Autistic Women
Emotions may feel confusing to you. It’s hard for you to “read” people’s facial expressions. You might not want to deal with people’s emotions. In fact, talking about them makes you uncomfortable, and you don’t see the value in it. You might think that only talking about facts or your passions is what builds friendships. So, it might not occur to you to consider others’ emotions much.
