Key Posts

These I feel are the best introduction to my blog – particularly the Autistic side. These will be posts I did at the beginning, as I was getting started, and will be a good place for other people to start as well.

Of course if you want to just dive in and read whatever I posted most recently, feel free!

What you won’t find here are the more personal posts, the ones about me and my life, or any fiction pieces I have done. I plan to put up a separate page for my fiction posts when I have enough of them but if you’re that interested in my life you’ll just have to browse through I’m afraid 😉



Talking the Talk – Some useful basic definitions that come up a lot on my blog and others.

My Journey to a Diagnosis: Parts One, Two and Three – Does what it says on the tin. My journey was fairly short and easy, but it’s important to tell those stories too.

Passing and Masking – What is it, and the problems it can cause.

Stimming Vs Fidgeting – Attempting to define the two.

Going Nonverbal – Many Asperger’s/Autistic individuals are non-verbal, or go non-verbal sometimes. I don’t go non-verbal as often as I’d like, but it’s difficult to fit into my life.

Executive Dysfunction – Trying to pin down a very nebulous term
