Get Off the Rainbow, Autism Is Not All Positive

I believe in Neurodiversity, I believe there are a lot of positives to being Autistic, but I don't believe in the gag order some of the Neurodiversity lobby are trying to guilt us into.  Living with a person who is neck deep in all the darker aspects of Autism as  a disorder is hard.

Has the Clothes Fairy Exploded?

I walked into my room this morning and stood still in shock.  What had happened?  A cyclone or has the Clothes Fairy exploded?  Then I remembered the boyfriend was visiting and this is how teenagers clean up.

I Am Awake, Shut Up Mum

In order to wake Alex from a dissociative/mute/withdrawn episode I sometimes use songs that attract her attention and simultaneously offer a reward if she can repeat the song.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

Great News, I Might Be Sick!

This is a statement healthy people will never understand.  It is part of the reason I believe it is so vital to tell kids if they have autism.  I am happy I am sick because I feel absolutely dreadful, but if I'm sick and it has a name I might get better.

In the Spirit of Spreading the Message

First to all my caring followers I am absolutely fine, and so is the rest of the family.  But I think its important to disseminate information about autism including subjective experiences.  One day a really smart person will collect all these little tidbits and who knows what will & won't be useful in the final … Continue reading In the Spirit of Spreading the Message
