Someone asked “how do you cope with driving & stress?”. I enjoy driving & I try to plan. If I feel unsure I will street view the road. If I’m nearby & I am fearful of a certain road I will practise on the road when it’s quiet (usually at night). Time consuming but helpful!

Myths again today. “People with autism don’t want friends “ This is a myth. People may struggle socially. It may look like they don’t want friends but they do. It’s just sometimes hard to know how to act around their peers.

This is my new tattoo. As a kid I associated my Autism with antlers. Antlers are located on the head, they are heavy but strong & every antler is different but beautiful. I became more accepting of myself & I told my dad "If I was born with antlers I wouldn't mind". :)

So if this isn’t confirmation that I did the right thing about pulling my son out of his school and enrolling him in homeschool, I don’t know what is. He just told me that he woke up in a cold sweat last night because he had a dream that he was back in school.

Sorry I have been quiet, I have been settling back into university. I am not always in the same classes as my friendship group but I’ve since plucked up the courage to talk to 3 new people. I’m tired from adjusting to the new change but it’s all very positive!. :)
