If you know something's wrong — get help.

I lived very successfully (and obliviously) with my Asperger's for 52 years. Like most Aspies, I learned to fit in and mask it all superbly until the point I burned out and couldn't do it any more.

Then the symptoms came out, magnified, and without any control or energy to use the coping mechanisms I'd developed over the years. Apparently "middle aged autistic burnout" is a "thing", and exactly what happened to me (in my case the major stressor was taking care of my suicidal daughter for three years).

And as soon as it became a real problem, I took a friend's advice and sought professional help.

Am I ever glad I did.

Asking for help takes courage, confidence, and integrity, the three most-prized traits we have as humans.

And asking for help is NOT a sign of weakness.

Hubris, stubbornness, and a refusal to face facts and your own limitations ARE, however.

If you have concerns or issues with your mental health and you don't ask for the help you need, you're not being brave, courageous, strong, or heroic.

You're being fucking stupid.

Get help.

And then do the same for your biz (you didn't think I'd gone all mushy and caring, did you?).
