About time

Look forward to hearing more interviews about adults with autism. If something like this was available when I was diagnosed as an adult it sure would have been helpful. It’s was hard figuring this out when the information was geared for children. Oh, I new I couldn’t be the only one that couldn’t relate to the puzzle piece. I did a concept based on the periodic table. Anyway keep it up

Astonishingly Bad Choice of Hosts

Bizarre choice for hosts — Eileen Lamb is a professional troll who makes money off of picking fights with neurodiversity advocates. It’s weird to hold her up as a regular example of “adulting with autism.”
