Still Autistic

This may sound odd, but do you, fellow aspergirl, ever feel like you’re “not autistic enough”? Sometimes, especially as I grow older and learn more coping skills, I get this strange fear that I’m not really autistic, because I can’t be autistic and working and socializing and XYZ thing that makes everyone day, “Wow! I would have never known!” At moments like this, when I feel worried that my professional diagnosis is wrong, I ask my closest friends and family, “Do you think I have autism?” They’re responses are usually both affirming (“You definitely are”), witty (“You’re still one if the strangest people I know”), and inspiring (“You don’t have to feel like life is an everyday struggle in order to be autistic”).
