Aspie Bloggers Unite!

When I re-launched this Blog as a way to document having Aspergers Syndrome, I thought that I was all alone; who else writes in this niche? Beauty and Fashion blogs seem to be dominating the industry-and I never really felt ‘in line’ with them. Anyway, I have since found some fellow ‘aspie’ Bloggers; I thought I would share some posts.
Boxes & Swatches. * 
Getting diagnosed with ASD-Aspergers is no longer an official diagnosis, but it was what I was diagnosed with at the time-is hard. It’s difficult. And part of the reason for this is that “People can become lost in the system”-and that services now operate on lower budgets, etc. (That’s another subject for another post.) Anyway: “The Longest Journey I Ever Took” (click here to view) is a post I particularly identify with. I think this post pretty much spells out how difficult a diagnosis is to get. And it needs to be bought to a wider attention.
* I’m not sure if this blogger would like me to reveal their name or not; she hardly uses it in their posts. Therefore, for sake of discretion, I thought I wouldn’t for this post.
Rebekah Gillian: 
One question I get asked a lot is: “Why do you blog about your Aspergers?” Rebekah is also another Autism blogger; in this post (click here to view.) she writes about why she blogs about her disability online. I think it’s admirable, and that we need more ‘voices’ lie her online.
As this post says; Aspie Bloggers unite! I think we all need to band together more, and Mae this a more encompassing subject.

    I love this post! Thanks for featuring me in it.
    I think people who write about their experiences on the spectrum are becoming more and more common as time goes on, and I love it. I’ve come to know many other autistic people through blogging that I never would have met before, which has provided me with opportunities I never thought I’d have. I really feel like we’re beginning to form a community of our own, and it’s really nice to see. I don’t know if you’ve heard of her, but another autistic blogger I love reading the posts of is Ali Caitrin!
