In the meantime, check this out

Well, I don't know what to say. That little "write, write, WRITE!" voice is sounding in my head, but I just don't know what to say, so I can't write.

But in the meantime, check out this site (fixed the link, I think) about 50 blogs you should bookmark during Autism Awareness Month. Scroll down, oh, halfway?

And here come the words, now. You see, my goal is to be heard and to make a difference. It almost sounds silly, doesn't it? An autistic girl who doesn't work, can hardly volunteer, and can't leave the house without help... wants to make a difference? Why, yes, I do.

I want to have a voice, if only behind my computer. When I was in partial, we did a thing on self esteem, and we read a piece that said things like, "I have a body, but I am not my body. I have a mind, but I am not my mind. I have thoughts, but I am not my thoughts." I left wondering... well then what am I? But I just found the answer to that question. I am my words. My words are me.


  1. The link links to Is that what you meant to link? I couldn't find any blogs.

  2. Yes, it's to this Registered Nurse site.

    Probably already saw the link somewhere else.

    And I like the thrust of the self-esteem thing.

    What about feelings and actions? They are part of esteem too.

    And, yes, your words are you. Just as my words are mine and everyone's words are everyone's.

    It's true that speaking can have a dis-owning and dis-arming effect.

  3. Oh yes, it's working now. Thanks.

  4. Through your words and the internet you really are making a difference to people further and wider than you ever could by other means.

    I was pleased to see so many blogs by people affected by Asperger's and Autism on that list, not just people who know the theory
