I find it interesting that everybody wants to know what it is like to live on the autistic spectrum, yet when you offer them your story they’re not interested unless it’s from a parent or carer? Parents and carers do have a valuable role in developing the understanding of autism and living on the spectrum, but surely the best people to talk to are those of us who live with it day after day after day. Or am I missing the point?

I am a 52 year old male with a late diagnosis of Asperger's Syndrome. I enjoy writing in all forms about people and life. I enjoy running over the moors where my mind can be free from the stresses of everyday life. I am currently studying for a PhD in autism and aging. I hope you enjoy my writing and please feel free to leave a comment. Thank you for taking the time to visit my site. View all posts by The Autistic FellRunner
