I am an aspiring autistic screenwriter. At the moment I am developing a sci-fi comedy-drama show with an autistic protagonist, which I want to shine a light on autism and what it can be like to live with. While I will be basing some of it off of myself and my own experiences, I want to represent as much of the autistic community as possible, showing the variety of the spectrum. If anyone felt comfortable, would you be willing to share any of your negative experiences anonymously on this thread, on the following topics:
  • Negative experiences in employment, such as reasonable adjustments not being met, your employers ignoring or downplaying your autism and needs.
  • Romantic relationships, e.g. times you have felt misunderstood by your partner/s, when they haven't taken your autism into account and been impatient and unaccommodating as a result, expecting you to conform to them.
