Autistic folks? Sometimes we’ve got hurtful relationships with our families.
I meant to go a totally different way this week…
But you wrote me about worries you had. After last episode.
So I call episode 5 of Autistic As Fuck Out Loud…. “Dear Autist: Forgiving Your Family? NOT a Cosmic Rule…”
Real talk. Some tough.
But your messages give me hope… that you may find some comfort here.
And, perhaps share it… with someone you know… who cares.

Part 3 of a series on Sexual Assault & Autism.
Maybe you noticed. A lotta Autistic AF Out Loud episodes? Come straight from messages from folks like you.
Keep em coming.
A special shout out to Twitter friend Night Rain for her input on sound quality. She’s a 25-year-old autistic artist. Check her out.
Each episode, I answer one personal question. Here we go:
Yes, my wife and I live separately. Near each other. But it’s hard for me to maintain independent action around other humans. I lose focus. And tire easily. It takes so much energy for me to communicate in real-time.
So I spend the majority of my time alone. As much as I love Kimmie’s company.
Another short episode in the next few days, “Autistic Masking as Performance Art.”
