I’m only friggin autistic!! Whoop!! Formally known as Aspergers.
I knew it, have done since the realisation truck hit me late last year.
I’ve finally found my tribe!!!!
Since leaving the diagnostic centre I have felt awash with a wave of calm. My shoulders sure feel lighter too!
Now comes the tricky stage – self-acceptance. My default has always been one of self-critique and loathing. Always setting unrealistic and unobtainable goals.
I don’t know what to do with regards to my mindset of my life being one based on imposter theory.
What I need, and could do with, is a month or two off work, so as I can process everything, to readjust and realign.
I’m currently attending Autscape and it’s now the early hours of the morning. What am incredibly liberating, and exciting introduction to the autism community. I’m loving it. Everyone’s just like me, or should I say, I’m just like them.
I found my tribe. And they get me. And I get them.
Feeling the happiest I’ve felt in years.
Mental note – I need to write more blogs to document my process/progress.
