Delightful abuse

One thing that’s really weird about autism is that some people are absolutely delightful and completely impossible for me to handle at the same time. That’s the kind of people who speak loudly and clearly, use a lot of gestures and facial expressions and laugh all the time. One part of me wants to be around them because they’re a total party, in the good way – another part of me wants to run and hide – or, if subjected to them for a long time, violently shove them out the door and slam it behind them – because they press me into the sensory overload of an actual party. Someone should invent some kind of all-round dampener so I could befriend these pleasant-unpleasant folks.
