On Disability…

It seems no matter what I do to become more independent, the world keeps throwing me more evidence that I will always be an dependent to my mother. It sucks, to say the least. I’ve got two associate certificates and not able to find work in neither field. Haven’t brought up “your career” talk toContinue reading “On Disability…”

Salut (Hi), Things Have Been Interesting…

Its almost 6 months since I last wrote, a lot has changed.. and stayed the same. First, I have to admit the depression has in someways decreased. How? I’ve started a new business, taken on online networking, and learning from one of the most resourceful mentor I could’ve ever imagined learning from. I consider myContinue reading “Salut (Hi), Things Have Been Interesting…”

Finally an update.

I have been M.I.A. Why? I really have nothing to say and extremely depressed. However this past Monday, I FINALLY got an update regarding my referal. My Doctor did in fact, send it to the Clinic in Toronto. The receptionist said, in order for my name to be on their 12 MONTH waitlist, they wouldContinue reading “Finally an update.”

Follow Up & Questions With No Answers.

I went to the my Dr.’s office last week to follow up on that Autism assessment referral to CAMH Toronto. According to the receptionist, my Dr. must have my file because she can’t find it… but claims she’ll make another note and give it to my Dr. as a reminder. So I left and criedContinue reading “Follow Up & Questions With No Answers.”

There Is “I” In Team

For most of my life, working in a team has been a major liability. No matter what the project was, I had to find solitude and silence to finish my part (and a lot of the time, everyone else’s) efficiently. I didn’t know why this always seemed to happen. Every “team” I was crowbarred into,Continue reading “There Is “I” In Team”

Does Anyone Understand that Autistic Children Grow To Become Adults?

Because they do. So what happens to them when they are grown? I’ve been noticing this very disturbing pattern all around the world. Most information, advocacy and resources are targeted and geared toward the parents of children or teens on the Spectrum. Anyone else who falls outside that VERY limited criteria are… well… who caresContinue reading “Does Anyone Understand that Autistic Children Grow To Become Adults?”

Why A Job & A Career Provokes My Meltdowns

I’ve noticed this pattern. Every interview, phone call or employment “opprotunity” I’ve ever had, felt like a death sentence. Like I was purposely putting myself in front of a firing squad. I’ve had to force myself to care about making a stranger like me in less then 10 minutes so, that I could potentially makeContinue reading “Why A Job & A Career Provokes My Meltdowns”

Oh. You’re Smart.

Shocking I know. When this newest doctor said it, I rolled my eyes and shook my head. My mother had just told him that I graduated from college twice and was able to saved $40 K years ago. And that was his eloquent answer. So not only was I pissed off and offended but IContinue reading “Oh. You’re Smart.”

Finally headed in the right direction…

Yesterday, I finally got taken seriously on my very obvious MISdiagnosis. After years of bouncing around from specialist to specialist with no answers, I’m going to be reffered to downtown Toronto’s CAMH Adult Neurodevelopmental Services for indiviuals that are 16- 60. And the best part is, I won’t have to pay like I had originallyContinue reading “Finally headed in the right direction…”

Once You’ve Met One

I am here because I have something to say and want to help other adult struggling say what they have to say too. If you matter, I matter. Why do this? I am about the voice that often gets overlooked. I am female and an adult that was misdiagnosed. I want to help others knowContinue reading “Once You’ve Met One”
