As my chest ripped
open from the strain
Of constraint
Bats flew out
Jostling one another
Chittering in distress
At the newness of light
Some so determined to survive
They tried to crawl back in.
Where they never belonged.

I am new to being me. At four, I had hyperlexia. I began reading without instruction. Despite academic abilities, I was thrown out of preschool for upsetting the other children. expulsion followed me through grade school.
i have been diagnosed atypical anorexic, bipolar, GAD and CPTSD. Only the CPTSD was correct.

I began writing in 2015 after a traumatic incidence ripped a mask I didn’t know I had, away.

Autists began contacting me after hearing me read. These are the people who told me who I am.

thank you for reading this, I am ready to connect with more of my own kind.
Glad to have you here, @MyKayos

It's an unfortunate thing to be unaware of your own condition and to have life leave you no choice but to face it. But it's still good you are figured this out and are open communication about this.
