Too Much Noise

The experience that I have with autism, is that it makes me unable to function in large crowds or areas with large amounts of noise. I know that’s common amongst us, but with me, what it does to me internally really messes with me.

I can’t think, I can’t focus, I can’t talk or do anything.

It gets to the point where at some points, even someone lightly brushing up against me, sets my sensory overload into maximum.
