Although research may be occurring to help experts and society understand Autism Spectrum Disorder a lot more clearly, there a still a lot of areas that could improve to help people with the condition and to make their experiences in these places a lot smoother and more comfortable. One of these areas is the education... Continue Reading →

The Covid-19 lockdown has been a struggle for everyone. Being unable to meet with friends and family members for extended periods of time has really taken its toll on people and new cases of mental health conditions have increased massively here in the UK and presumably worldwide. This is because humans are creatures who crave... Continue Reading →

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 wasn’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 didn’t want to be the odd one out again. I didn’t want to give people yet another reason to... Continue Reading →
