Autism Advocacy has a new Leader

The past three days The Chase's Anne 'The Governess' Hegerty has been miles out of her comfort zone. Camp mates and viewers may be feeling admiration and empathy for her but I'm pretty sure very few can truly understand what she is experiencing. As a fellow female with ASD I must say I am in … Continue reading Autism Advocacy has a new Leader

Fireworks Suck!

Remember, remember the fifth of November, Gunpowder, treason and absolute hell for anyone with audio sensitivity. In the week leading up to Guy Fawke's night lots of people complain about how traumatic it is for their four legged friends. What people don't realise is that it can be just horrific for human beings too. One … Continue reading Fireworks Suck!

The Woman Who Fell to Earth- My Thoughts

It is hard to critique something when it's almost perfect and last night's opening episode of the new series of Doctor Who certainly was. There are, however, many changes to discuss, the first being Chris Chibnall as show-runner. So far he has done exactly what needed to be done. Chibnall has discussed the fact that … Continue reading The Woman Who Fell to Earth- My Thoughts

As one journey ends another begins

A week ago today my youngest sister Emilia left the nest and made her way up to Nottingham to begin her university journey. It's not been the easiest change for me to deal with as I'm still processing the fact that I'm no longer at uni myself but this hasn't prevented me from feeling an … Continue reading As one journey ends another begins

60% Like Me

My brain is as mucked up as Theresa May's council And even if they somehow survive I know I'll crumble, With an education system built on memory and not ability And a nine to five work life with no flexibility This world simply does not accept people with hidden disabilities. Society is changing But the … Continue reading 60% Like Me

10,000 Steps

The world is caving in on me Enclosing like the shell of an inedible oyster. Each sound and movement makes the tunnel tighter, The spark of light thinner And the air harder to breath.

Why I Smoke

In the past I've received disapproval from my parents for discussing smoking online. But I have always promised myself that I will be 100% honest when writing and in recent weeks I have been relying heavily on cigarettes. By no means do I argue that they are good for you but the stress I feel … Continue reading Why I Smoke
