Originally posted to my blog, this is a short piece on the struggle that is an Asperger's Meltdown. The use of the initials NT stand for Neurotypical which is what those who are not on the spectrum and whose brains function normally are described as.
Wanting to crawl out of my skin,
Creatures move as anxiety sets in.
Doubts rush through my head,
It’s the frustration that I dread.
Vocal chords and brain detach,
Can’t find the key to open the latch.
Lights are too bright to see,
Sounds seem to deafen me.
Hard to explain to an NT,
How difficult a meltdown can be.
