It’s been almost a year since I received my autism diagnosis.
Much has changed in terms of understanding myself, much less has changed elsewhere.
All of it has been life defining.
In honor of April’s World Autism Awareness Week/Autism Pride Day/Autism Awareness Month, please watch this short video created by Autistica that visually depicts what it’s like to be autistic. It’s super helpful if you know/love/care for someone who is autistic or are just generally interested in understanding it better.
I have a hard time explaining in words what it’s like for me so this video is super useful.
While my personal journey hasn’t been the easiest, getting diagnosed remains one of the best decisions I have ever made.
I am proud of who I am and will never apologize for being autistic. 🙂
