After years of studying autism, working with autistic kids, and saying I was “as close to the spectrum as you can be without being diagnosable,” I read a few blog posts by autistic women and realized that I’m *actually* on the autism spectrum. I was almost 29 when I finally figured this out, and since then I’ve read about women both older and younger than me finally getting their diagnoses after years of struggling with being “different.”
I started this blog to share some of those posts and blogs by other autistic people, to share some of my own personal stories and reflections, and to share reviews of movies and books about autism.

Schenley – I would love to use some of your posts in my book! Could you pick out 2 or 3 of your favorites? There are too many for me to read but they are all so fabulous!
