Blog:The Silent Wave- feeling thoughts [autistic poetry]

(I wrote this four years ago, about someone whom I’ll call the female love of my life.  (I’m asexual but bi-romantic.)  And today, I thought I would share it with you.  The song running through my head at the time that I wrote this is a beautiful, simple, wistful, song (which I highly recommend!) by Beacon called “Feeling’s Gone” (link to video).  The piece doesn’t match up with the song, but you’ll get an idea

Blog:Aspie Rude Girl- DIY Sensory Toys Part 1

Blog:Aspie Rude Girl- DIY Sensory Toys Part 1

Hey guys!

I am back with another post that relates to Autism, but is certainly not just for people on the spectrum. Sensory toys are great for ways to relax or calm down and are used by many different people.

Since sensory toys are very expensive simply because they have the name sensory in front of it, I thought I would share some alternative things and cheap ways to make your own sensory toys at

Blog:Pharaohs World!- The Autistic family expands…

My three year old grandson has been diagnosed as being Autistic. 

And that’s great. 

He’s a lovely little boy who likes nothing better than walking along hedges taking in the patterns of the leaves. He likes to walk alongside fences because they guide him and give him purpose. He likes to read the Highway Code because he likes the different shapes of the road signs. He gets right up to the Tv and takes in

Blog:The Unabashed Autist- “I would be friends with Stalin if he had a ping pong table.”

Welp.  I’m in a dark place mentally.  Surprisingly, I confided in M., (probably because he’s my fiance now, and I’m starting to comprehend it.)  I showed him the articles from mainstream media sources demonstrating the police have been told to shoot blacks on sight.  It sounds unbelievable, but do a search, and you’ll find articles about a cop who held a black man at gunpoint for 9 minutes because he was black.

The black man

Anonymous asked: Apple picking, black friday, chilly air :3

apple picking: if you could go anywhere, where would it be and why?

Right now, and semi-realistically? I have a friend in LA I’d like to meet. Or maybe New York City? Not realistically: Helsinki. 

black friday: what is one thing, if anything, you would sell your soul to own?

God and I have an agreement; there’s only one thing I would sell my soul for,

Blog:Neuro Wonderful- black friday and scarves!

I just did Black Friday, but here is scarves. Which is a tough one!

scarves: if you could only wear one outfit for the rest of your life what would it be?

The idea of spending the rest of my life in one outfit is honestly horrifying to me.

In reality: I guess some combination of dark jeans, a top with a subtle square-cut neckline and three-quarter length sleeves, a cute army-style jacket on top,

Thank you! Congratulations on your diagnosis <3 I’m happy my blog has been helpful for you.

corn mazes: do you have any secret talents/abilities?

I’m pretty good at fighting? It’s 100% enthusiasm that makes me decent at it, I guess. I was in martial arts as a teenager, and while my form and patterning were never great, I was a vicious little thing who was hard to beat at sparring. People do not expect this.

Anonymous asked: pumpkin spice

pumpkin spice: what’s your drink of choice?

Carbonated water, mixed with a little pure pomegranate juice. Or, any one of a wide variety of herbal teas. Or genmaicha. On occasion, some nice strong, black tea with a bit of sugar in it.

fightminyoongi asked: This is from an entirely different ask game but I’m curious: would you rather go through a corn maze or go on a hayride? (Or neither?)

I’ve done a corn maze twice, and I did not enjoy it either time. As a dyspraxic autistic person with no sense of direction, it was much more frustrating than fun for me to be trapped in a maze, in the cold, with a bunch of loud

Blog:Mama Pineapple- A passion, stolen

As a kid, most of my spare time was spent drawing. It was my earliest passion.

I was no savant. But I suppose, on reflection, I did have at least some innate “gift”. The people I colourfully produced aged just three, in bright felt tip, were anatomically correct (in as much as having, for example, five fingers on each hand and articulated limbs), and incredibly complex.

Relatives and family friends recall me feverishly creating drawing

Blog:The Unabashed Autist- …No soft cheese of any kind.

I got triggered.  I don’t know what caused it, but I’m not in the mood to linger on it.  I’m super tired from not sleeping well (in a strange place.)  I’m debating about going to Denver to ride this out.  I’m trying not to let myself give in to the urge to be Negative Nancy.  I know it’s one of The Depression Monster’s automatic weapons, so giving in means letting that bastard win.  Not happening.

Blog:Mama Pineapple- In praise of the brick

Blog:Mama Pineapple- In praise of the brick

In between bouts of abject misery, whilst I’ve been off work over the summer holidays I’ve been immersed in a nice little obsession that has gripped every single member of our four-person household.

My husband was always a huge Lego fan as a child, and was always eager, from her birth, for our girl to reach an age where she might, just might, develop an interest in it. And although she showed little interest

Blog:Married: With Aspergers- The One True Way(tm) Of Being Autistic

Growing up autistic you get used to being told, “Don’t do that!” So what a relief when you get past all that, find other autistic folks, and finally get to be yourself! Am I right?

Except…

Sooner or later you run into the Autistic Behaviour Police. If you’ve spent any time online as an autistic person you have probably encountered them. Maybe you equivocated when asked about puzzle pieces. Maybe you showed ambivalence about

Blog:The Other Side- Homecoming #autism

Blog:The Other Side- Homecoming #autism

I have two countries – England and Spain.

I have one neurology – I am autistic. I am not a person with autism, or half/ almost neurotypical. I can do neurotypical communication ( to a point) but mainly I’m guessing; smiling and filling the gaps.

For the longest time it seems my being Spanish in England/ English in Spain provided cover for a deeper cause of my alienation. An alienation (which being an undiagnosed autistic)
