The defining moment of my life happened when I was 10 years old. I’ll never forget the feeling of sorrow when I realised that I was different. That I could never be anything but broken.
I was diagnosed with Asperger’s (ASD) along with what most others like me struggle with; depression, anxiety and OCD. I also have dyslexia, which didn’t help me much growing up – especially because I only got tested for dyslexia after I failed my first bachelor thesis.
I don’t feel broken any more. I know I am not. I am different and that’s actually pretty awesome. This blog is about me figuring things out.
I am going to tell you about my past, all the moments in time that brought me here.
I am going to talk to you about my present, as I struggle to find my place in the world.
I am going to share my hopes and dreams for future, even though they might not come true.
I want to share this journey with you because I don’t want to do it all alone. I am not sure if I can. Others have often expressed their surprise when I don’t know what’s normal and what isn’t, but I don’t think that’s really all that surprising. What’s normal to me isn’t always what’s normal to you.
Sitting alone in a room may make me feel safe and content, but it doesn’t make me grow. I don’t think I’m the only one trying to figure things out, so I guess, what I am hoping for is that we can all help each other.
I post something new on this blog every Tuesday, but I might occasionally post something during week too.
