It’s always a difficult decision as to whether to disclose a condition or not. I know that many people fear the stigma which might occur as a result of being open about being on the Austistic Spectrum. This coupled with the fact that most NT people know little or nothing about the condition and a lack of knowledge leads to people being ignorant in every sense of the word.
However, for me, and this is a personal choice, I’ve chooses not to hide my Aspergers, rather to embrace it. The moment at which I accepted not being neurotypyical, the clearer my life started to become. Yes, I still have the same social symptoms and my obsessive nature hasn’t changed, but I know longer struggle to find why I don’t always quite ‘fit’. This has brought me clarity and happiness.
Anyway, this is a short post. I wish all of my friends and readers seasons greetings and I’ll see you in the New Year.
