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...

Most people start walking, jumping, running, skipping, and learning to control posture and balance naturally. However, riding and balancing a bike was not an easy case for me. I could not simply balance the bike. I fell even when I was using training wheels or stabilisers. The balancing and...

The best educational system opened the door to navigate my learning journey. I was born extremely premature and had many developmental delays. Autism did not stop me from attending mainstream education in school. The path was with twists and turns; I was placed in County School for two months in...
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...
Can the world function without numbers? Being a high-functioning Autistic, I have a special bond with numbers. I have a memory talent to convert the temperature units from Celsius to Fahrenheit and vice versa. I discovered this special talent in my 7th grade or Year 8 science class. Without...

I was born extremely premature (24 weeks). At birth, I only weighed 720 grams and I was only 33 centimetres or 13 inches long. The healthcare workers taught me to breathe, talk, walk and speak. When I was in my mom’s (mum's) womb, the chances of my survival were slim. As I was eager to see the...

The most significant challenge was being born extremely premature and beating the odds to survive. After my birth, I stayed in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) to gain weight and overcome developmental growth in the incubator that was my first crib. The period was tense for my parents...

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...

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...
