Over the years, I’ve learn, using an trial and error approach, what to keep for myself in order to avoid hurting feelings of someone I love, look eccentric,weird or pretentious at family reunions. I’ve learned over the years to hide my hyper/hypo sensitivities. I wrote a non exhaustive list of what I keep to myself.
I’ve been diagnosed as neuro-atypical 2 years ago at age 34.
I am not gifted (neither intellectually nor in sports or arts)
I don’t have a memory like an elephant
I do not live in a glass bubble (actually, I live in France)
I don’t lack empathy.
