I get “Zoom fatigue” in person, too.

The split-second delay of an Internet connection is like the delay of my brain’s audio processing.

The reflective thumbnail video is like my self-conscious awareness of how I might be perceived.

The sudden shifts in volume from a variety of microphones are like the unpredictable twists and turns of social expectations.

The challenges of Zoom are similar to offline conversations – but doubled.

P.S. I write from my personal experience as an autistic. What I share is not a substitute for advice from an autistic medical professional. Also, some of my opinions have changed since I first wrote them.
