What Autism May Feel Like

I can't pretend to know what it feels like dealing with a sensory processing issue, but from spending time with autistic people, I can start to get a bit of an idea. I know I can attest to feeling overwhelmed, dizzy and anxious the very first time I was in New York's Time Square. So imagine every day feeling like Times Square and not being able to leave...sounds horrible.

This video from (I've linked to them before, they post some really good videos!) is trying to give people insight into how an autistic sees the world. Take a look and warning, don't be surprised if it makes you cry!
