Hi. For the last two weeks, I've been a trainee at a psychiatric. As I mentioned in my last blog, I had to take care of a whole unit of patients managed by a nursery assistant who taught me. As they changed shifts, I had three different coworkers. And luckily they all were really nice and...

Hi. The context of my situation is that I'm doing the final module of my course and it's practical training. My shift is 7 hours long every week day until June 30th. During these hours I have to wake up 16 patients, bath some of them, do beds, put breakfasts, give medication, clean the dishes...

Hi. Today we watched a movie in class. I didn't feel with the enough motivation of watching a 2hrs and a half movie at 10 AM so at first I wanted to continue my drawing of White Mask from the novel Tian Guan Ci Fu, however, just the start got me hooked. It tells the story of a kid who has...

Hi. This could be also in the support part of this forum, as my brain is ilogically going crazy without finding an exit. However, I prefer it to keep in here as it's an event of my life I didn't want to happen, yet it did. And no matter how many times I script situations day after day, I'm...

Hi. Today I'm going to tell a game we did in class, but left me wondering how I could feel so good while doing just a "character" for everyone else. As we're going to work in a psychiatric with people diagnosed with way different disorders, our teacher likes to play games that will make us...

Extract from the video though perhaps not the most important extract. I need to add more information here in order to be able to post this entry so here I provide some! I started a campaign for 'A Psychiatrist with Expertise in Autism in Every Hospital (UK)'. I was hoping for equality of...

Hello I'm Arran Bull and I am an animation masters student currently developing a TV pilot for a show called "Psychic Maria". It's about a teenage autistic girl with psychic powers learning to control her powers while fighting society aliens and getting through school. The pilot revolves...
A question that often plagues my mind in my day-to-day life is: How can I advocate for myself and my needs, without feeling or seeming selfish? Say I'm at work, and the lights are too bright. Luckily, at my office, the lights can be dimmed and the color temperature can be changed. This is great...

Let's see. Mostly a normal morning today. Not in too bad of a mood, more on the meh, side. The drive to work this morning was also quite uneventful, barring the usual antics of taxi drivers here, no regard to road rules or anyone on the road. Always had problems with expressing or being able to...

I had my first meltdown in over a year today. And today is the first day I have recognized that my meltdowns are, maybe, different than an NT might exprience. Despite the draining, ugly nature of my meltdown, seeing this event differently is a relief! Ever since I remember, meltdowns have...

I had my first informal meeting today. It seems they liked me (yay!!!) and I will have my official interview on Thursday. They also invited us to come out to their campus to meet everyone and I will most likely be going next month. If all goes well (it never seems to but I am deciding it will go...

If people only knew how much stress and anxiety they caused others, they wouldn't torture them by waiting until last minute to give them vital information. Which is ironic, considering I am an Aspie. I got the call this morning at 9am that I got into my Radiography program. The admissions person...
This week I find out if I am accepted into a Radiography program at my local college. Actually, it should be today. My advisor told me a couple months ago that she would call accepted students on the 8th, "why make student's wait?!", she said. She was very chatty and seemed optimistic I would...
No matter what I do, no matter what I try, I feel so alone. I hate it. I want to not hate it. I want to be, "strong and independent," and I want people to see me that way. Unfortunately, I feel like a weirdo/alien/robot, watching people around me have normal lives, normal relationships, and...
I am so, so tired of feeling inadequate, or like I don’t belong anywhere. It used to make me sad, but now it just makes me angry. I hate going through all motions, thinking I’ve found someone who “gets me” … only to be proven very wrong in the end. I will elaborate more at a later time when I...
