Being in meetings: Trying to spot the gap in discussion to make your point, but not quite managing it. Processing and planning what you want to say, but finding the discussion has moved on. Looking like you have nothing to contribute, when actually you have so much.

These obsessions don't do people any inherent harm. They are life savers, they act as an anchor to stop us floating around all over the place. Please don't try to make us diversify our interests or stop enjoying a thing for no good reason. It's cruel and unnecessary./23

Protect us from the mockery of our peers (especially in school, teacher followers). I see this at work and I have *always* tried to get neurotypical students to back off and leave students be. It's bullying, plain and simple. /24

I did a quick little doodle on what us sensory beings find quite difficult to do in our daily lives (Obviously these things aren’t exclusively difficult to just sensory people, these can apply to many different people)

Now, these interests (I'm going to refrain from referring to them as 'Special' as there's something decidedly infantilising about that usage, I think) are very much a known trait of people, and it may be one of the better known traits in the general population. /2

This past year has really been eye-opening after we met Tatianna, who is . She’s one of the hardest working in the . She explained her triggers, limits and provided queues to help us support her when she’s reaching uncomfortable limits. We are proud of her.

people often have intensely strong feelings of justice and fairness, to the point where it is seen as a characteristic trait. This can appear at an extremely young age and persist for a lifetime. /1

Why do I campaign & fight 4 people’s rights thru talks & meetings even though I’m hurt badly & it costs because you see even if we only change & save one persons life it means they might survive long enough to change 10 people’s lives & so on J

But there are still myriad misunderstandings about them. One clear thing, though, is that these interests can occupy us people considerably, and they seem to act as a sort of 'safe zone' to retreat into - something we desperately need thanks to the stress of life /3
