The “Joys” of Public Advocacy Work

One of the things a person has to deal with when we publicly advocate is an influx of unsolicited private messages. Here is a shot of my inbox this morning. I haven’t even had COFFEE yet!

[Screenshot of an unsolicited private message that reads: “I hope that you and yours are safe and well in these troubled times. I have lifelong neuro-metabolic problems. Very strange problems. I believe that the realities of autism are in underlying imbalances, not as a dichotomized condition.”]

Ignorance and misinformation thrown in my face before I’ve even caffeinated myself. Hopefully I’ll have the energy to tell this one off effectively after a cup or two of the Good Stuff.

I’m just not up for it at the mo.
