might not be autism/aspergers but simply depression. we can have several diagnoses, they are not necessarily related (but sometimes they are) Self care is important, see your doctor if this continues. hope you are doing better today

I have struggled with proprioception all my life due to my autism. I thought it was problems with depth perception but not just that. I have only 25th percentile visual processing so things in motion are extra difficult for me to understand and process quickly. I have been driving for over 50 years,...
