I attempted to play devils advocate on Instagram earlier and was actually told to go rot by one of those that tried to start on me for my comment. I basically questioned if the NHS was helping everybody who was seriously unwell by the coronavirus. I had read about a case in London where they told someone they weren’t a priority and she subsequently died the next day. I wasn’t saying that they were doing an awful job as a whole. They are totally up against it more than usual with the virus cases still climbing in numbers. I went for a walk today but I was careful. I never came into contact with anyone else. This is the only way we can ease pressure on those services. I appreciate that people think that applauding those workers at 8pm was something that people thought was respectful. I appreciate the work they’re doing without feeling the need to make any outwardly noise. The fact that I was given an angry tone back at me wasn’t necessary. We all have our different ways of showing appreciation. Some of us are more reserved. I am more reserved in how I show most of my feelings nowadays because this world doesn’t give people the option to be open without consequences. As for the whole self isolation thing. This is quite easy for me to do. I haven’t seen most of my family for years. That is the consequences of being openly autistic. Friends also have fallen out with me for being openly autistic. Many autistic people are of the same frame of mind. The current status quo is the equivalent of our normal lives. We don’t get invited to participate in social gatherings or go out with friends often. Some of this is by choice due to things that have happened in our lives due to our autism issues. Some of this is permanently enforced on us due to being banned from places or even people for ‘not being the norm’. Welcome to a taste of our lives that you are now experiencing due to regulations set by the government.
