Autism and Emotional Immaturity

What is emotional immaturity? I ask that because people like me with autism are affected by this. I differ from the way neuro-typicals understand emotional maturity. Through autism I see and navigate the world differently.

Being on the spectrum, means my emotions have developed differently, the same as my responses and perceptions lead me to view the world differently. It means others don’t understand, but being in the majority …

The Benefits of Peanut Butter

Peanut butter can be a healthy option when it’s enjoyed as part of a balanced diet. It is rich in several nutrients, which may help protect the heart and manage blood sugar. However, eating too much peanut butter can increase a person’s daily intake of saturated fat, sodium, and calories so should be consumed in moderation.

Personal Failings

However you personally fail, external challenges can be the reason. It could be that what you were trying to do doing isn’t something you would have instigated yourself, therefore the interest isn’t there.

But personal failings aren’t all bad, particularly when we learn from them and we don’t make the same mistakes twice. Failing should be a stepping-stone for us to go on to something better. We seem to take …

A weight off my shoulders

Finding out about cerebral palsy at 46 and autism at 56, means the weight off my shoulders has finally been lifted. Learning about my disabilities, my symptoms and my challenges has literally been life-changing.

Anything we struggle with that we get to know about, ‘is a’ weight off our shoulders. It’s my truth, knowing my truth is a relief. Even if I had been able to place my disability as a child, I would still have needed to understand ‘me.’

Learning about myself and writing about my experiences has not only brought about clarity, but it …

The general dysfunction cycle

Breaking the cycle of general dysfunction, is important if we are to bring peace into our lives. And unless we choose to break the cycle, we will pass those dysfunctional traits on to our own children.

An Inspiring Read

Learning that I had a disability at the age of 46, not knowing what my disability was, or what my symptoms meant, I was given no choice but to look into my disability.

I could write about some of my experiences on my blog, but it wasn’t the right platform to explore my disability. I needed …

Getting to grips with Autism

Imagine looking at yourself in the mirror growing up and you can’t see the animation in your eyes or your smile, and you don’t understand why.

And as you clean your face daily, and as you look in the mirror, you keep going back to the same thought process, and every time you see your eyes and your reflection in the mirror, you know you’re dealing …

The Dangers of WiFi

We have all come to rely on wireless technology in our homes, at work and in our cars. I have often wondered about the possible health implications of the ways we connect through our phones and wi-fi networks.

Bluetooth systems and wireless routers emit electromagnetic radiation in the low gigahertz frequency. This is a level that some studies consider is dangerous to people. And the danger is, unfortunately, a cumulative …
