Unfortunately, many people with autism struggle with stress. This can exacerbate the characteristics of autism: meaning you may become extra sensitive to stimuli, have a diminished sense of control, and experience anxiety. Going to work becomes draining, asserting your boundaries becomes challenging, and the causes of your stress become unclear. You might feel misunderstood by your environment and continue pushing through, unsure how much longer you can endure. This is incredibly exhausting and frustrating. If not managed properly, stress can ultimately lead to an autistic burnout, rendering you unable to function at all.
