Mention the word autism and the room suddenly turns silent.

    Loved this. Especially the diversity of experiences. Have found it very useful getting family and service providers to understand the complexities of female autism!

    It's great to read
    mind liked women. I recognized myself in some of the stories. It helped me accept myself better. The mentioning of "personas" and the parallel fantasy world, struck a cord. Also when one of them talked about her relationship with nature and simplicity. When I read those lines, I started crying. It was like reading myself.
