Free from blame

There was one area of my life that I continually blamed myself for and that was my failing in school. Each day was a continual battle.

Book Reviews

My book helps me understand my life, it brings clarity to a disability I didn’t know I had, it helps me find ways through issues I struggle to resolve. My book also helps me work through my stress, and anxiety.

Autism and facial expressions

There are so many things I grew up with not knowing about myself, the biggest bug bear is my lack of facial expression, through autism that I didn’t know I had.

With autism, it’s not just how we look, it’s how we smile, the way we look, it’s in our eyes. I was aware it was something, but nothing about autism was highlighted, mentioned or explained. Through medical …
