    I’m sorry that those close to you aren’t being more supportive. I’m part way through diagnosis and had to tell my mother to find out about my childhood. She recently taliked about how there no autistic children when she or I were growing up, and has asked me nothing about if I’ve heard anything. I feel quite disorientated and alone. It is good to read your blog.

    Hi Liz,
    I’m glad that you enjoyed reading the blog. It’s difficult when those surrounding us don’t understand/take an interest in something that is very important to us. There are many people in the same situation as you, so you’re not completely alone. It is possible that your mother will start to take more of an interest once you are formally diagnosed.
    Take Care, Cat

    Wow, thank you for sharing your experiences. It makes so much sense to me as I was born in the 60s and would now call myself a high-functioning person with autism – doubly gifted, as some would say. I am finally understanding some of the anomalies of my life. Why things that I say aren’t considered funny, when someone else can say the same thing and everyone laughs. Or why my intellect has been valued and used at work, but no-one wants to visit my house or share a meal.
    Thank you again and treat yourself kindly!

    I’m glad that you enjoyed reading about my experiences. I’ve spent a lifetime hoping that one day I would find other people who would understand the way I felt and thought. Let us hope that the knowledge and acceptance of our autism will bring about a new and positive chapter in our lives, Cat
