Surviving the Festive / Social / Party Season!🎄

Another little doodle from me: this time just some quick little tips on how to survive this extremely festive/social/party season!🎄

If I’m truly honest I find this particular time of year difficult due to my sensory difficulties and because I am autistic. I find family gatherings quite hard so I like to go hide in the toilet every so often to keep myself calm and stop myself from getting overwhelmed.

I’ve also learnt to say no to a lot more events this festive season (obviously in a nice/ polite way!) so I’ve avoided the work Christmas party and work team party (why so many parties?!). As I result I have been questioned beyond belief (eye roll) by certain colleagues but I’ve stood my ground. I don’t do parties or large social gatherings – never have, never will. And that’s okay.

I hope you have a lovely Christmas / festive season and thank you so much for all your support this year – it’s really meant a lot to me!
