Make Room, I’m Autistic

Let’s be honest, I take up a hell of a lot of space. I always have and I likely always will. I know what you’re thinking, and I can tell you right now, the picture you have in your mind of me is completely wrong. I’m not a big girl. I don’t occupy a great deal of space in that sense. In fact, I’m quite small by society’s standards. That doesn’t stop me from commanding and demanding my space.
