I've been reading Lynne Segal's interesting work on ageing. She hasn't broached the subject of autism but I wonder if my autism serves as a form of protection when it comes to ageing. Earlier in life I got used to being ignored because I was odd and I found it easier, indeed enjoyable, to...

It had not been an easy week for me. Autism research rabbit-hole aside, I was also trying to meet tight deadlines at work on a project. I was tired every day. It was hard to grapple with this new realization, that I may be autistic, during this stressful time. And yet, it also made me feel...

Aspergers & Autism
Often, the big thing I’ve seen with a diagnosis is time. The lives of people that are on the spectrum can vary significantly from when they were diagnosed. My parents decided to go through with a diagnosis this year, and I have been thinking a lot about how my life could have been different if I...

Hi. I wrote the other day about this matter, but somehow I felt a bit more positive about it. Today, I went to class after four days of holidays and I saw again my sad reality. I am ugly. My face is round, with acne scars, purple eye bags, my teeth are ugly too as I can't pay for their...
I'm not even going to attempt to write a story about what happened to me since my last update. I mean, my last post was Pre-COVID. Ah, to be young again... Anyway, here's a summary of the last three years: - hypomania - relapse - lost job - started writing - recovery - new job - stopped...

She hears the rest of the world saying that they are the normal ones. Somehow she doesn't believe it. She wonders if she ever will. Maybe others are the ones who are strange. How can they understand social norms, metaphors, similes... and politics????? The rest of the world is a mystery to her...

Hi. How should I start this blog entry. I'm truly confused with myself. I cannot understand any feeling inside me anymore. I'm a person who has been able to identify my emotions thanks to a lot of training for years and it wasn't until now that I'm lost with what's going on inside me. My...

Hi. It's been a long time without writing in here. I have no enough free time and energy to keep active online. Indeed, I'm writing this during my working hours. It's been truly hard for me. And I guess it will continue like that for a long while. Though, I've followed several advices I got...

Aspergers & Autism
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...

I don't want to burden others with my depression any longer. I picture my friends, at home, having a good time, doing their own thing. But then a text from me comes in, and it is just despair. They say they don't mind, they say it is okay. But it doesn't feel okay. It has been a 4+ year battle...

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...

Day to Day Life
Hi. Today gave me the chance to experience a very satisfying morning that I wish it would always be this calm and relaxing. As always, I went to class, taking the bus. Surprisingly, it was cooling outside due to yesterday's storms, so I felt my body slightly shivering. Once inside, the...
