Today, I cleaned my laptop while I was anxious. I clean my laptop any time I take my laptop off my desk or out of my room, so this is not an unusual occurrence to me. But anxious me?
Anxiety is harder to accept. Anxiety is something everyone has -- even neurotypical individuals -- and anxiety is something you can have control over. Anxiety is something you can harness and tame whereas autism is not. Or, rather, this is how I have always been told.
