#TakeTheMaskOff Diagnosis/Self awareness – How does it impact masking?

My diagnosis was like a light, illuminating parts of me that I'd hidden in the darkness. #TakeTheMaskOff

  1. I like how unmasking a bit at work helped free you to do those things you needed to make work easier for you. It is a bit paradoxical how masking helps us sometimes pass as NT, even as it inhibits our functioning. Of course, we burnout from too much masking, which is why coming up with our own coping strategies is a big plus!
