I am a 30-something cat lover with Asperger’s.  I live in the UK and was diagnosed in 2010.  Now I try to raise awareness of Asperger’s Syndrome, particularly in relation to students in Higher Education.  This is a personal blog about my experiences of being neurodiverse, and my continued journey towards self-understanding and acceptance.

I have also added a section of materials that I use in Asperger’s Awareness training sessions at work, which are based on my own experiences of being a student.

      I’m a bit(!) behind with my correspondence, so I apologise. Thank you for your comment. I went to your blog but couldn’t find it, I hope all is well with you and your cats.

    Hi, I just wanted to say I am so happy you are writing this blog. As a woman with potentially undiagnosed mild aspergers I feel like I can relate so much to a lot of your posts. We both have a similar way of thinking about people and similar aspirations in the way we relate to people. I would love to speak with you about your experiences if you would be willing to do email or online chat.

    Thank you so much for your insights.

      Hi Carly, thank you very much for your positive feedback 🙂 and I apologise for the delay in getting back to you. I have your email address via WordPress, so do let me know if you would still like to correspond.

        Go ahead. Life is so very weird. I just wrote a really long email to someone about social anxiety and/or aspergers. I started thinking about bloggers who write on these topics during the email and your blog had popped into my mind while writing. Within a split second after hitting the send button I received an email notification from your blog. I don’t know if those things have meaning or not but it’s really weird and fun when they happen. Thank you for the response. I hope to speak with you soon!
