Nope: A turning point in my mind

Ten years ago I joined Twitter with the username @KarlettaA.

Knowing myself as strong, valued, and generally liked is (now) often present.
Conversations are easier. Being present is easier. Connecting with and being able to understand others is easier.

I’m back.

My VERY MIS-guided “understandings” about Autism and Aspergers

What do you know about Classic Autism, Aspergers, and Autistic Savants? Turns out I was incredibly mistaken and ill-informed.

I am intelligent, love learning, have an advanced vocabulary, am detail-oriented, creative, caring and compassionate, and enjoy quite a few passions.

I am nothing like what I thought Autism/ Aspies were. Yet I am Autistic.

Dear Dr: Re-requesting support and my communication difficulties

If you refuse to read my written notes, please know that I will not be able to tell you what I need and want you to know.

Dear Dr: Asking for a comprehensive Autism assessment

I am articulate AND I have social and communication problems.

I am requesting a formal assessment for ADHD / ADD and Autism Spectrum Condition.

I have not been coping with pressures at home, with relationships and with my mental health.
