Does anyone else really struggle with work away days? I’ve got mine coming up tomorrow. Its always been one of the most stressful events for me at work - where I’m basically fairly functional. I hate ice breakers so much. I hate that you have to appear interesting to new people on cue.
I think as I’ve become more confident in talking about my autism, and partly through this project, I’ve become more confident in gently asserting that I don’t want to take part in things. And explaining why. So I will go to the awayday tomorrow. But I’m not going to the icebreaker. And I’m going to take my laptop and my headphones and if I’m not enjoying it I’m going to wander off and calm down.
