I feel like everybody else got a manual for life but I didn't. (RANT)
1 week ago · · Autism,
I was recently diagnosed with autism, and the title above describes exactly how I feel. There are these small things and habits that everybody else thinks of as normal but I was literally never told I had to do them?
Like, for example, I wasn't aware that I'm supposed to clean the earwax out of my ear every once in a while? Apparently people do that? In all my life I have no memory of someone teaching me that or me doing it routinely and now I'm genuinely confused.
There are other stuff that genuinely confuse me as well. Was I supposed to be taught to have good social skills by my parents and missed out, or do neurotypicals have some sort of instinct for that?
