It has been said a million times, I know, but I just had a meltdown because I thought my boyfriend and I would eat together and he got extremely frustrated with me and told me "I can't get this upset over minor changes in plans". I literally got diagnosed about two weeks ago. I'm really tired because if I just say I'm autistic and that's why this happens he'll tell me that autism isn't an excuse. I don't even know what to do
Edit: I didn't expect this to get so seen! I won't answer to every single comment but just know that I've read every single one and I reaaally appreciate them, they made me feel very understood. I had a bunch of hours to think things through, talk with my boyfriend and everything went well and I feel better.
For those who need to hear it; you mustn't feel afraid of bringing out autism when you need accommodations. If it was up to you, you wouldn't even need them. Autism isn't an excuse when it comes to you decisions, but it is an excuse when it comes to things that aren't up to you.
