I am Autistic, and I am a non-binary person. For most of my life, I passed as neurotypical (NT). I lived in the NT box, and I struggled. Now, I have “un-boxed my brain,” and I am practicing living authentically as an Autistic person.
I started this blog in July 2015 when I was fairly directly involved in advocacy work. I started burning out in December 2015, and by the end of June 2016, I had reached one of the lowest points of my adult life. It was then that a series of arguments happened, and I made the decision to close down this site because I couldn’t see the purpose of it anymore. A month later, I realised that this site was still important to me, and I resurrected it.
As of July 2017, I made the decision to stop blogging. The emotional labour that it takes to write and maintain this blog is too great for me at this point in my life. I am going to keep this site active because of the amount of time and love that went into creating it, but I don’t think I will be writing anything else.
