Re: Under Control; sadly only an illusion
I am exactly the same. Iím 38 and I have Autism and ADHD... I am not sure if there is a correlation to the Parcopresis. I didnít really have it so bad in my younger years. I loved to travel until I hit my late 20ís...itís gotten to the point where I get extreme anxiety when pressured to go on vacation. What you said about ďseeming fine but being severely limited by something that is more serious than people realizeĒ...I related so much to that. Everyone I know thinks Iím just overreacting and they all seem to think Iím choosing not to ďgoĒ when in reality I physically CANNOT ďgo.Ē Thereís a difference. I know logically that it is a normal bodily function but I physically cannot get relief unless Iím in my safe space. Itís exasperating beyond words but Iím so happy I found this group. I find it extremely therapeutic to read all the stories and know Iím not as alone as I feel. Thank you for that.
