Working or studying full time exhausts me to the point where I am not normally able to do much else during evenings and weekends. I know that a lot of neurotypical people say their work is tiring but I observe that most neurotypical people can still have a ‘life’ during evenings and weekends. This is in comparison to autistic people. I have read so many autistic people’s experiences of work and education and how it completely exhausts them or leads to burnout. ‘Free time’ ends up being ‘recovery time’ and relationships, hobbies and ‘life’ suffer.
