Push through it

Push through it, push through the emotional pain. I pushed through the pain of not knowing about my disability, or what that even meant, how it played out day to day. I pushed through the pain of not being able to talk about it in the early days.

I was convinced I had something going on as a child, it was in my eyes, it was in my smile, my smile didn’t seem animated and where my siblings’ smiles were animated, my smile didn’t fit. It was something I kept going back to.

It is because I have autism. I have no problem with autism, I recognise it has given me a life through my writing, but I have an autistic look and I hate that. Knowing about it at the age of 56 has made it impossible …
