22:04 How Can I Help My Roommate with Autism?
I have a new roommate with autism. Extremely high functioning, however as an adult they need still a care taker in a sense. Cannot drive, really bad with money, super gullible...can't really cook. I've never lived with someone with autism, however my heart broke when they told me their story. I'm Caucasian, and they a person of color. Most of 2020 they were homeless and even caught COVID because of it. Couch surfing, they got sexually abuses by some they were staying with and others just took their social security money and EBT, all while calling them racial slurs to their face. Some people are truly disgusting. I have no interest in taking advantage of this human. They've been through enough and I certainly don't want to add to the list. The issue here is not only am I dealing with autism, I'm also dealing with PTSD from what they experienced in 2020. I'd like to help promote independence so one day they can live on their own, however also don't want to come off as cold, and I also don't want to coddle too much either. I'll happily take any advice I can get.
