Interesting mask perspective on being autistic. I feared I would have sensory issues with the mask, but didn’t realize it would be mentally relaxing to not constantly worry about how to compose my face in public. I don’t have to smile or worry I look angry. pic.twitter.com/l13Q8lj9i6

I fucking HATE wearing the mask. HATE it. I reliably do it but it decreases my mental acuity and cognitive abilities greatly. I literally cannot make decisions while wearing one. The CO2 buildup must be massive because I cannot think at all while wearing one.
For instance, I stood in front of some products in Publix for about 10 minutes and could not make any decision at all because of the mask. I ended up buying nothing because I could not even think about it.
If mask-wearing continues, that means I will not be able to participate in society at all. I am not the only one who has this problem, either.
