Hello all, I have struggled with some time with the fact that my autistic partner Stims. When it happens it's usually during times of incredibly high stress, and when it happens it spins us both up and problems don't get solved for a long period of time. I've tried everything from letting her stim it out, to trying to cover or protect her body parts. We have been together for 3 years and going strong. But there is a fear in me this will be a bone of contention between us. Any help or advice on how to handle/deal with partners who stimulate would be incredibly appreciated.
