So I’m Autistic Whitch I wouldn’t change in a million years. And the only thing that has really made me feel calm during meltdowns is listening to Britney. So I asked other Autistics I know and asked

I’m autistic too and I love Britney! I love listening to her music and dancing around my room when all the craziness in the world starts to feel too heavy. Hope you’re doing well and staying healthy d

I’m autistic. Diagnosed at 4, been a fan of Britney since I was 6 months old. She is my earliest memory, and her music is one of the most treasured things in my life. I don’t just Stan, she contribute

I kind of can't even seek out diagnosis yet and I heard it's a nightmare, especially in the U.S. Luckily, I feel like it's so obvious with me. I just have seriously higher priority medical needs to take care of first, and now we're in lockdown to boot. I was supposed to have surgery in April, and although it's actually a really important health-related thing, they had to postpone it. I'm really anxious and bummed about it but trying to remember to think of others too. I digress!

Anyway, I don't know about calming down necessarily, but maybe. She is a huge mood boost and a bit of an energy boost for me. I turn to her during some angry times, but I think I stew in my anger but she does cheer me up. I guess calm down, but I don't know if I like that phrase, haha. I might also turn to "Float On" (by Modest Mouse) on repeat for hours instead, hehe.

I’ve been captivated by Britney since I was little too. If i wanna feel **** I listen to ITZ, rough patch? BO! Need to push forward? Circus. Maybe we should make a video of fans talking about how Brits music lifts our spirits 🤔 She lifts mine!

People sometimes love to make fun of others for having simple things such as music, books etc or favorite artists who help them cope. But it’s not silly at all. Whatever it is that helps someone get through a tough moment or time is good and worth it (unless it’s causing harm but not the point). 

i don’t have autism. But when I have a panic attack, music from my favorite artist calms me down instantly, so I get it. Especially when it’s music with lyrics you can relate to or that help you stay strong. So good.

im sure Britney would be happy to know she helps you cope.

Hey, I know it's not the same but I have OCD and her music calms me down loads and takes my mind off any intrusive thoughts or compulsions almost completely (especially when I'm dancing to it). Thanks for sharing your story <3 

i also am suffering from OCD As well and i also use britney to distract myself aswell

Interesting. I never really thought of Britney's music for my 1 student w autism. I did play the instrumental for Inside Out one time and he was jamming to it so that's a good sign! I'll try an actual song when they're doing their free-writing sessions to see how he will respond to it.
