Last Things

I wrote this story and posted it several years ago. But I'm reposting it because I feel it may help people in these difficult times we're living through. Keep your hopes alive, my friends.

And it's a very common

Posted on Mon, 04 Mar 2019

And it's a very common experience with high-functioning autistics - as I read and hear all the time from others.  Even in my last job, with an autism charity, the lack of proper understanding was profound.  I left in the end because of a bullying...

I understand the info

Posted on Tue, 06 Nov 2018

I understand the info overload!  It's all a lot to take in, and it takes time to process.  I'm 3 years past diagnosis now, and I'm still running the numbers.  To use the old cliche, it's a rollercoaster.  So many positives... but the other side...

Thanks, Stephen.  It takes some processing - and we're good at that!  I over-analyse everything.

I tried to make this not so much about behaviours and more about how Aspies perceive the world.  It's one of the reasons that diagnosis is so...

A beautiful tale, Lindy.  It lifted my heart to read this today.

That's sounds like exactly my kind of holiday, too!  The travel agents never quite understand, do they.

I especially love the hope embodied in this - the...

So many things going on in

Posted on Sun, 16 Mar 2014

So many things going on in this one, Tina.  Love, loss, disappointment, aging, the sense of growing isolation... and the comfort, still, in those small familiar things.  That final stanza is perfect in capturing it all.

Posted on Mon, 04 Mar 2019

Yeah.  I fictionalised it this time.  I don't like defining people by their features, but it's the kind of thing kids notice. No offence to anyone with large noses.  I've got large ears!

I can remember that day like it was yesterday. ...

I had three of Michael.  One as a small child, standing beside a Christmas tree, grinning a toothy grin as he held a bottle of beer up to a pint jug.  Clearly something posed by dad.  It always brought a smile to mum,...

Cheers, mate.  It was the colour of cotton, rather than like it... but I know what you mean.  Ash-grey is a cliche, too.  Hard to avoid 'em, really.

Minimum wage doesn't even get paid by some companies.  Some garment factories in Leicester...

Posted on Mon, 25 Feb 2019

Thanks for your input, Rhiannon.  It's something that's often discussed on Aspie forums.

I tend, now, to try to hold for a couple of seconds if I can - but it's never easy.  It is a bit of a myth, to be fair, that we avoid eye contact...
