Yesterday was my 1 year autistic-anniversary, which isn’t an actual thing, but I’m making it one
One year of learning and of riding the waves of the joy and the grief of adult diagnosis. So many moments of pure elation as something finally made sense and so many moments of pure terror when something else made even less sense.
I’m here now, in good company.
Length, thanking Mike
@mike came out” with his Dx on patreon a few days before I was unexpectedly Dx-ed (long story), and his representation made such a wild difference.
Someone I respect highly, care about deeply, and have had the voice of in my ears for 5+ years through my heavy deconstruction, personal trauma, and family death carried me through the initial shock of my Dx and helped do the initial breaking of my pre-existing construct on what autism is.
I cannot believe it’s been a year 💛
@madisonlmc I made it a thing too! Happy anniversary!
@madisonlmc Happy autistic anniversary! I love that. And, yes, you’re definitely in good company here.
