Hello, I am Melissa. I am Autistic, queer, bi-sexual and non-binary, and I am hella proud of it. I am almost 63 years old now; I was 54 years old when I started this blog, and am still here to tell my story…..and I will tell my story till my dying breath.
It is a very bittersweet story, and yes, most of my story is very dark and depressing, because, well, my life has not been a happy and pleasant ride.
I don’t just write about my autism and autistic-related matters; I also write about politics and social justice, because it is all intersectional.
I am here to educate you about the ableism, gaslighting and abuse I have had to face my whole life as an Autistic person, and I am hoping to, in the telling of my story, to get the word out that we who are Autistic, have a voice, that we matter, and that we need to matter. Please listen to us!! See us. Hear us. And believe us!!
Edited to add: If you are going to come here to slam me, what I write, and what and who I am…you will be blocked. You have been warned.
