People on the autistic spectrum often have certain patterns and routines they follow. This can be to make themselves more comfortable in otherwise uncomfortable situations or it can simply be something they do as part of a daily process that makes them calm or happy. I am no different. Since I was young there have... Continue Reading →

Since I was 18 years old, I have had many jobs. Unfortunately, none of these jobs ever lasted very long, usually a few months at the most. Some of this is due to my anxieties becoming out of control, some of it is down to my depression spiking in various stages of my adulthood, but... Continue Reading →

It wasnโ€™t a decision I made lightly. After all of the bullying and unkind social situations I have found myself in over the years I was rather fearful of telling anyone about my ASD diagnosis. I didnโ€™t want to be the odd one out again. I didnโ€™t want to give people yet another reason to... Continue Reading →

Just like anyone else with mental health problems, I have good and bad days. A good day is when I feel upbeat, or even just normal, mentally, where I have no issues that put me off track. A bad day, however, is a very different matter. Everyone experiences a bad day differently, so I thought... Continue Reading →

People who have Autism Spectrum Disorder often also suffer from other mental health conditions. One reason for this is due to how they are perceived by others in the world who may treat them differently because of the ways people with autism might act that make them stand out from the โ€œnormalโ€ people in society....

Now hereโ€™s a tricky one. I may still be learning about my ASD but I thought Iโ€™d give this one a go. Take a moment to look around you and pay close attention to what is going on in every direction. I mean REALLY close attention. Focus on those birds tweeting outside, each car as...

Autistic people often have other mental issues that they are having to live with. Iโ€™ve personally suffered with my mental health since I was around 13 years old. A sudden dip in mood was all it took to cause me to go through a bout of depression that is still ongoing until this day. Now... Continue Reading →
