“Hrs & Hrs” singer Muni Long took to social media over the weekend to share she has autism and how it has impacted her lupus.
In a series of tweets, the 35-year-old Grammy Award-winning singer and songwriter, whose real name is Priscilla Renea, explained how her undiagnosed autism caused her to begin repressing her authentic self.
So apparently I’m autistic, and my free self is the version of me that I began repressing at the age of 22 because it made people highly uncomfortable.
Muni Long shared how she began abusing an “insane amount of drugs,” but that didn’t work either.
It started first with me doing insane amounts of drugs and then when that didn’t work I just held it in. Which led to lupus.
Sadly, Muni says her lupus has now gotten to the point where it’s impossible to contain.
And in order to free myself from the rollercoaster that is autoimmune disease, I have to let my emotions, thoughts and feelings out…. But…. Autism! OMG WTF THIS IS SO WACK 😭
On the bright side, Muni Long says knowing she is autistic “explains SO MUCH.”

There are so many adults like Muni Long, who are autistic but they have no idea until it starts impacting other aspects of their lives.
Sending her prayers for good health and positive vibes.
