"Look Doc... You Just Don't GET #AutisticJoy‪"‬ #AutisticAF Out Loud

    • Personal Journals

This episode I talk aging as an Autistic Elder.
Getting finally diagnosed at 63… only to face mental decline as I hit 70…?
One Swedish study pegged autistic male lifespan at 53. So I'm living on 17 years of borrowed time, I guess… so far.
If you’re autistic, love one, work with some… or just can’t figure out if you are one…
There's gonna come a time you worry…
Real talk. About real life.
Cuz they ain't talking autism in AARP… yet.

EXPLICIT: some profanity, brief mentions of drug use & suicidality.
