Noticing illnesses

Does she take sugar? (Tardistic blog). Interesting observations about difficulties in identifying if and how she is ill, or the differences between illness, hunger, emotion etc. In her case, craving sugar in her tea, where she usually wouldn’t have any, is indicative of imminent illness. I have read several other accounts where small behavioural changes are often the only hint about autistic people becoming ill, which is very helpful to know!
