Autistic exhaustion

Spoons and Splines: the Laws of Thermodynamic Autistic Motion, by Kirsten Lindsmith.

She gives examples of experiences which can drain her energy/capability, plus some suggestions for how to regenerate/recharge.  (The author references the Spoons article, which is also linked to from this article).
