When I lament about my experiences with self-advocacy and being dismissed, gaslight, or traumatized by doctors, my friends are sympathetic. They are kind. But they don't understand.
They think the issue is that I'm tired and burnt out because it is hard work.
It is hard work, but that is not why I am tired.
They think that I am tired because I have had to advocate for loved ones, and that's somewhat true. It is hard work.
But what they don't fully grasp is that...
I shouldn't have to self-advocate with doctors at all.
In fact, I shouldn't have to advocate for anyone. Ever. Not in the context of medicine.
Doctors shouldn't be dismissive of patients as the default. Patients shouldn't have to insist on their fundamental rights as the default. I shouldn't need a man in the room to back my claims for them to be considered valid.
I'm exhausted and I'm traumatized because medical professionals continue to traumatize me. I'm tired because I'm tasked with doing their job. A doctor's job is to be an advocate for the health of the patient.
Why don't they do it?
Why do I have to do it?
I just want doctors to stop traumatizing people.

i've been doing a lot of googling and there's some research that suggests autistic people are more susceptible to developing post-traumatic stress and develop post-traumatic stress due to events that typically are not considered "traumatic"
this can include repeated exposure to overwhelming sensory stimuli and just pervasive social marginalization
I also learned that about 20% of autistic people are diagnosed with an anxiety disorder, a large proportion of which are atypically presenting or "not otherwise specified" anxiety disorders. Hi, I'm an autistic adult who was initially diagnosed with panic disorder, later was labeled with GAD, and has shown debilitating obsessive-compulsive symptoms at times in my life as well as having several specific phobias. I'm currently "Anxiety Disorder Not Otherwise Specified."
Specific phobias are especially wildly overrepresented among autistic people. I'd be willing to bet money that many of the phobias are actually trauma triggers
there is still so much research left undone on this. all the researchers who have written about it acknowledge the gaping hole in our basic understanding and research of how trauma and anxiety work for autistics. it's desperately needed to understand this in order to reduce suffering for people on the autistic spectrum.
meanwhile millions of dollars are going into this bullshit:
"Autism Speaks: Give Us Your DNA. Fuck You."
Theyre doing fucking scans of autistic people's faces to determine how symmetrical they are???????
PLEASE STOP. WE DO NOT FUCKING CARE ABOUT THE ASYMMETRY OF AUTISTIC PEOPLE'S FACES. WHAT THE FUCK IS THIS, PHRENOLOGY 2.0??
