Baking day last day of the year

One of you, my wp friends wrote a post about baking donuts a while ago, maybe I read it in the beginning of December or the end of November. But I don't remember who wrote the post, I am so sorry. I wanted to give credit to the one who inspired me to try baking… Continue reading Baking day last day of the year

Kv Ölstugan Trosa Sweden

One of Trosa recent residential neighborhoods. In my pastel version housing complex looks like a small fairytale castle almost. If I may say so myself. Ett av Trosas senare bostadskvarter. Kv Ölstugan där Ica låg tidigare. I min pastellversion ser huskomplexet ut som ett litet sagoslott nästan. Om jag får säga det själv. Målningen har… Continue reading Kv Ölstugan Trosa Sweden

Autism

This is a great post from Aspiblog.

I think We are all humans and we are all different and also should be that. I’m a half hearing person, but don’t see that as an error that need to be cured.

I don’t know all about being autistic, but I can relate to some things that often is labeled as autistic. I once read a book that opened my eyes totally. The author tells about her childhood as an autistic girl, only she doesn’t know about it until she’s adult.
Her story was very interesting to read and I could recognize some of her experiences.

I’m just a High Sensitive Person (HSP), but after I read that book I realized I could have “choosen” the autistic things as well, but I didn’t.

It’s nothing you really choose, but with more courage I could have been more autistic in my childhood than I dared to be.

I don’t know if the book is translated, it should be but you can read about the book here. If you read Swedish 🙂

INTRODUCTION

This post is by way of a public response to two blog posts that I have recently encountered. I am writing this because in twitter speak I am #actuallyautistic.

TWO IMPORTANT BLOG POSTS

The post that first planted the germ of an idea for this piece in my mind was published by Autism Mom under the title “Sometimes I don’t know what to think”. In it she mentions being at an autism related event and hearing someone talk about “curing” their son’s autism.

The other post that helped to spark this was published this morning on parents.com under the title “15 things I tell my friends when they’re facing an autism diagnosis”. As a sample of what to expect I offer two paragraphs (they are not contiguous in the actual piece)…

Be wary of “cures” and “recovery.”
One of the first books I read about autism was…

What do you see in the picture? I don't say more than that, because then I maybe plant images, in your head, of what I see. Vad ser du i bilden? Jag säger inget mer om bilden eftersom jag då riskerar att plantera bilder i ditt huvud av vad jag ser. Anna
