If someone, esp a person on the spectrum is trying to explain to you what is frustrating them & why, just listen, don't talk over us, don't tone police us, don't dismiss us...
Don't as an allistic w/ broader depth of tone, verbal and non verbal communication belittle us & say "I'm gonna talk to you like that". Act like I swore at you, no I asked you to listen, God forbid I emote or speak w/ any feeling or visible frustration.
My frustrations are greeted with indifference, no compassion. I'm lowblowed & argued with on a day that is supposed to be about me.
