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.
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.
This is a talk I wrote in one of my good weeks while experiencing Autistic Burn Out. Using this method as a baseline has helped me on my recovery journey.
This poem is about being interested in someone’s determination.
I am gifted peace to take time to understand conversations. Without the worry of looking ‘dull’ or ‘slow’.
It’s nice not to be burnt out!
