I got my wristbands from ASD visual aids today jgjsksldjjskakshhdkhd. It’s this wristband where on one side it says ‘happy to talk’ on a green background and if you flip it over on your wrist (which you can do without taking it off) on the other side it says ‘please leave me alone’ on a red background. And they’re designed for people with ASDs to let other people know if they’re okay to communicate/be approached without having to go through the anxiety of telling them so. I’m hoping this will come in handy when I go back to uni/I’m back with my friends again; not much chance of my family taking much notice but YH
They cost around £5 BUT with shipping mine came to just under £10 (which is weird because they ship from the UK and I am in the UK but it’s whatever) and you get three in a pack. I got the adult size which is kinda big (goes about a third of the way down my arm) and is going to take some getting used but I have huge hands and tiny wrists so if I’d gotten the child size I wouldn’t have got it over my hand. They’re made out of silicone which is a weird texture but one I can personally get used to.
I got them from here. I know they ship from the UK, and that they ship internationally, but I’m not sure of the cost for international shipping.

You know, the hooded figures don’t seem to mind Cecil talking about them.
I got to thinking, and you know who else eats pizza, hangs out in dog parks and hates being acknowledged?
THE HOODED FIGURES ARE JUST TEENAGERS WEARING HOODIES
ah yes, that explains why they hover several feet in the air and emit menacing staticky sounds
hey puberty wasn’t an easy ride for everyone ok

Next time you are having dinner with a Bahraini dignitary, don’t embarrass yourself by confusing the Queen’s abaya with a burqa.
tears in my eyes; solidarity arising from such horrible situations is bittersweet.
This is not your destruction.
This is your birth. n.t.
