My Autistic Experience – Conflicted During Autism Awareness Month

Apparently it’s Autism Awareness Month… at least in the States. Every time there is an event or month that has something to do with me, I find that I barely notice it. A year ago, I made a post on Ableism month that started with “So apparently this month is Ableism Month?” So yeah. Apparently… Continue reading My Autistic Experience – Conflicted During Autism Awareness Month

Spoon Theory & Autism

Happy New Year! A lot has been on my mind since my last post (a while ago) and I want to take some time today to share with you all. Perhaps you’ve heard of something called, “Spoon Theory”?

So apparently this month is Ableism Month? I don’t follow this kind of stuff all that much, but with some thought, I do have something to say. This post was originally going to be an angry rant, but after some thought, I was able to think of a way to inspire people, a lesson I may… Continue reading My Autistic Experience – More Than Just A Label

“Know your limit. Play within it.”

This phrase might be OLG’s tagline, but I totally love it, and is a great line to help scaffold coping strategies for my life. I see my ‘limit’ as my capacity and as various boundaries that must be maintained, and how intense I can ‘play’, as my stamina. As a person with ASD, I have learned that… Continue reading “Know your limit. Play within it.”

My Autistic Experience – Singleminded Passion, Fixing a Broken World

Lately I have been thinking about my dream for the world. Some of these thoughts have been provoked by the recent election results. Recently, I realized that there is no politician who could represent me. How can a politician represent a scientifically literate autistic? The answer is that he or she probably could not. The… Continue reading My Autistic Experience – Singleminded Passion, Fixing a Broken World
