My head is spinning with so many thoughts and Idea I have no idea where to start, Ok maybe that’s not entirely correct.
Let’s start with some Facts and Myths about Autism, Because here is the thing I really don’t care if you have an issue with me wanting to be an advocate for a condition that people truly don’t understand.
Today as I sit here at my computer after spending god know how many hours, researching my family tree and finding in access of 139 people who may very well be related to me.
I look at Twitter, apparently, the 2nd of April was World Autism Awareness Day. I wish someone made me AWARE of that……Seriously!!!!! We still don’t understand what autism really is, how it affects people differently and how it is caused. And yet people like me who are “ON THE SPECTRUM”….(not quite sure what the spectrum looks like) are used as political pawns, hysterical pawns, punch bag, target practice, and everything else in between.
OMG….. I swear if one more person says to me they want to support me, or they want to make sure I have the right support, or that I get the right support.
I may just have to gouge out their eyes with a blunt spoon (please note that due to the fact some Neurotypicals believe Neurodivergent people like me don’t have a sense of humour I don’t really mean I will gouge out their eyes)
What I’m trying to say is if you say you’re going to support me then you had better dam well show me, I don’t do great with words, in fact, I don’t find the word support very supportive, for me, it is very annoying.
For me particularly in this context it means you can’t work here because you don’t work like us, therefore we must show you that we support you by constantly telling you that we will support you and to just make sure you understand that we are in fact supporting you we will make sure the correct amount of emphasis is placed on the word support.

It’s was suggested to me, that maybe I should write a book, about me, well I think that is what they meant.
But why would I write a book about me? In fact, not many people actually know who I am. So I have decided to start a blog, in the hopes that I can explain who I am and why it was suggested I should write a book, or at least I think why It was suggested I should write a book. So this is my Journey and this is the beginning, the first post of hopefully many posts, about the many subjects, and experiences that make up my life.
