It has been Autism Awareness Day again. April, 2th counts as one of the most remarkable days during the year for me. Sorry I did not blog on that very day. Ofcourse autism was on my mind anyway ;) So if you are one of those people wanting to get more information on autism, perhaps you have a child diagnosed with ASS or are you slightly aware that the difference between you and other adults, may have its origin in autism, welcome to my blog. I hope it can help you increase your knowledge about autism. Speaking for myself, the years after my diagnosis have been the best so far I guess. The puzzle of being different was solved. I can now full explore my identity. Which is not easy as there is no such thing as 'the general' autism identity. Sometimes I feel quite lost when I feel there seems to be less solidarity among people with autism as I want to be. Well, so seek solidarity is a part of my search for harmony. Recovering from a broken childhood, having felt as a misplaced teenager, growing up into one of those alone walking adults in the park, being there at times people go to work or take care of their family: that has been my life path into a adult woman with autism. They say, the grass seems to be always greener at the other side, but that is not true. It was destiny to get this life, I can not complain about it, I am not someone else, I am just me.As long as my special interests do not take over the harmony feeling created due to my own deeds and talents, it's ok. Bye for now. Currently I am working on restyling this blog. So you know. Be prepared. Let me know if you have any suggestions. Take Care.
