My name is Magda, I’m an autistic diagnosed as adult, at 38. I have been living in the UK for over 10 years now but I’m originally from Poland.
When I started this website, I wanted to focus on writing about autism specific communication needs but the situation evolved and I ended up blogging about my personal life. That brings me the feeling of finally being heard, after years of being told by everyone around, including a counsellor, that I should think in a different way, not the way that I was thinking.
My diagnosis didn’t bring any solutions with it, just naive expectation that ‘things will finally change’. They didn’t. And anyway, what things?
This blog is the space where I can be myself. I write about everything that is on my mind, as long as it doesn’t give away too much information about people who would like to be anonymous . I often add my overloaded with patterns Redecor designs as images. It happens that I post a couple of times a day. It would probably be difficult to read it all but I guess it’s possible to work out how I’m thinking from just a couple of posts.
I also blog about my mental health, including my two, stress inducted psychotic episodes (they’re part of my history now), the weather, and yes, communication, so feel free to read as much (or as little) as you fancy.
