Lydia Andal Author of Am I Autistic Mentioned My Blog on Her Website

People are talking about the Anonymously Autistic Blog! I really LOVED Lydia’s book and am so grateful for the compliment. Thank you SO MUCH!

Here is a link to an article I thought was useful entitled “10 Things I Wish People Knew About Dating Someone on the Autism Spectrum By Kerry Magro”. I found a link to this article on the excellent ‘Anonymously Autistic’ blog which you can read here.

        1. It took me a while to start looking into a formal diagnosis. For me the final call was made when I was worried that my “less social” nature and having to leave work early all the time might be making me look like I don’t appreciate my job. I want to have the diagnosis in case something I do that is “an Aspie thing” gets me into trouble. Also I cry hysterically if the police pull me over. It looks bad. I am worried about protecting my liability. 😦


  2. I wonder if those that have sensory issues can still benefit from sensory therapy…if you know anything about neuroplasticity, I think it’s possible but may not have as quick of results as a child
