Okay, I’m leaving now, I’ve decided I’ll be away until August instead. This used to be my favourite forum site; maybe it’ll still be. Jun 29, 2022 at 3:00 PM

      I’ll be starting a Rosary Novena for the Feast of Our Lady of the Rosary; in which, I’ll pray for Autistic intentions like Autism Awareness.

      This weekend turned out to be quite rough, next week is going to be very busy too but hopefully it’ll at the very least, be more rewarding.

      I’m starting to realize how frustrating it is to promote Autism Awareness, I had no idea how much people don’t even seem to notice you.

        Sounds cool
        As for promoting autistic people--I dn't know; haven't thought it through. But we need to be seen as more than helpless, that's for sure. Lots f people don't even want to remember we exist, seems like. I get "but you don't look autistic" a lot--It's like in the public mind, we have Schroedinger's Autistic. Blends in but looks distinctive, is helpless with the burden of genius, etc.

        I see, I actually plan on commissioning two comics after my first Autistic Girl Autumn Commision; from the same artist. That might help in getting the message across.

      I just came across an NT who posted his ignorance for Autism & had to reply; it looks like my Autism Advocacy Campaign is starting early.

        Oh wow, I'd like to see the whole argument, mainly for research purposes.

        This may not be a NT person, necessarily. Someone who is autisitc & convinced of his neurotypciality will force the whole world into the boxes of his disorder. How do I know? That was me once.

        "....Autism was either the result of our parents no hugging us enough as kids, or a giant medical scam." Oh I see. Ignorant/uninformed.

        Sounds like Bruno Bettelheim and his "refrigerator mother" nonsense that was popular in the 70s. Bettelheim seemed to be extremely Freudian in his approach, believing that parental behavior caused mental issues in offspring.

      Things seem to going forward now, the artist accepted my commission and says he’ll have the sketches ready by next week.

      Apparently making YouTube videos is a bit more tricky than I thought. Hopefully I’ll finally have my first YouTube video up by Monday.

        This actually inspired me to take advantage of this, use it to promote some Autistic advocacy through this. I already have a bit of a plan in place.

        The way that's written, it sounds like a video game you're trying to play, hoping to Level Up.

        I guess the video game concept of leveling is based off of that, stages of perfection within meditative religions, and stages of life as observed by philosophers.

    Revert to the Catholic Faith, thanks to Our Lady of Fatima. Have a talent for writing literature, and am hoping to explore it. But first I want to get a job and start a family.
