My Mother didn't sleep for years

Apr 07, 2020

This would have been 1979/80.

Mum bouncing me on her knee, you'll notice a familiar expression for many autistic bubbies on my face.

We're taking in so much information all of the time, all that...

April is hard

Apr 07, 2020

April. Is. Hard.

(The following is expressed with gentleness and respect from an autistic person, and from one parent to another).

I am going home to do differently

Mar 24, 2020

I love you all

Mar 20, 2020

Scrolling, reading, listening

Looking for loving energy

My kin who self isolate

My kin who home educate

Never has there been a time

Where we know

More than ever...

Mar 12, 2020

It is a wild offence

To stand upon the same ground

As our autistic ancestors

Who went unidentified

Dismissed, misunderstood

Invalidated and gaslit

And to not stand proud

In our identity and culture...

I learnt to always pretend

Mar 11, 2020

I used to regularly go through periods in my life

Where I could feel myself unravelling

This could obviously only mean that

I spent the rest of the time tightly wound

Always hypervigilant about my...

Open Hearts

Mar 10, 2020

I listen to and respect the lived experience of our community.

BUT I don't have to bully, shame and harass non autistic professionals and families in order to advocate...
