For those of you that are following my blogs daily, ha ha, yesterday's excuse will hopefully be published tomorrow. This is the second part of a something that had an explanation blog first. Please yourselves. I sometimes find knowing the first part helps you understand the second, but I wouldn't bet on it. With no … Continue reading Welcome to Mothers Day part 2
Why am I subjecting you to a repeat of this story? This is the first story I wrote as an adult. I found I could write while making notes for a story about Mothers Day while living it (it was intended just to help me ignore the kids). This whimsical little story then became the … Continue reading Welcome to Mothers Day part 1
Of course disabled people can do whatever they want to. Rah,rah disabled rights. Okay, done? Seriously though, writing is supposed to be based in truth, right? Even the most preposterous fantastic premise must be based on the human experience, it must have internal cohesion or it becomes pointless. So you write from what you know. … Continue reading Can an Autistic Person Legitimately Become a Writer?
'I am not my disability, I am a person!' Interesting, but in terms of autism how accurate is it. I suppose what it gets down to is how do we really understand 'a person'. Other disabilities, sure I'll give you that, as far as I know. Blind people are people who can not see, deaf … Continue reading I Am Not A Person, I Am An Autistic.
Read the Preamble first, hopefully it will make you less angry! Then read the next bit and then this one because... Well that's how I wrote them. I think there is kind of an order to it, you know if you read the bits separately they appear to have no clear beginning, middle and end, … Continue reading Neurotypicals May Be A Necessary Evil. Or If Autistics Ruled the World! – Governance The Serpent That Destroys All!
Sorry about that but I got hot and I wanted a break and Ta Dah I am back. Read the Preamble first, hopefully it will make you less angry! Imagine a world where all the neurotypical people have disappeared. Like those TV shows that try to work out building collapse rates or evolution if humans … Continue reading Neurotypicals May Be A Necessary Evil. Or If Autistics Ruled the World! – To A World Without Neurotypicals.
First my many disclaimers: I am responding to thoughts I have had regarding how hard it must be to be a neurotypical person and have most of your mind taken up with social, how can I put this politely, inconsequencies. And how the higher concentration of logic and ordered thinking available with the autistic brain … Continue reading Neurotypicals May Be A Necessary Evil. Or If Autistics Ruled the World! – Preamble
My husband insists I blog about this. He has a whole speech about why its valid & important and will get it off my chest. But he's not fooling me; we disagree and he's sick of listening. So you have to put up with this. Okay! Most people probably don't know we in Australia have … Continue reading Politics – Pauline Hanson
In order to wake Alex from a dissociative/mute/withdrawn episode I sometimes use songs that attract her attention and simultaneously offer a reward if she can repeat the song. Singing a funny song preferably with actions wakes her up. By the time she can sing the song properly she is ready to safely walk around. This … Continue reading I Am Awake, Shut Up Mum
Ha Ha Ha, everybody else was wrong! Meaning, of course, I was right, how could you doubt it! The Mastitis is all gone. My ruthless, relentless draining of the infection worked. I have learned over many years of infections, sinusitis & abscesses. Cutting or in the case of teeth pliering out the problem & then … Continue reading I Told You I Was Fine
