What does it mean to be on the spectrum

Ok, Guys, I ran out of ideas a few days ago and scrolled through many a forum to get an idea of a post for today and I have to admit this question made me think. and Oh yeah I am listening to this whilst writing this post. Absolutely loving this right now https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O-IsF_RdT-Y Its, not in English but you can get the message its such a relaxing song and Jessica Judes voice is so beautiful. Right down to the post enough intro.


What does being on the spectrum mean to me?

Not sure if I covered this when I wrote my diagnosis post but for all you new fingerprints all 700 of you Wow 700 this wee blog has grown more than I thought it would. I was super chuffed at 300 I am ecstatic now. When I got my diagnosis it meant that I finally had a reason why I was this quirky little kid who seemed to annoy a lot of people. It made me realise why I had so few friends and why I still do. Wait what I am talking about I have now 700 friends. That’s a heck of a lot. It let me know that I wasn’t alone in the world I wasn’t the only person in the world who stimmed. I have quite a vocal stim which can seem quite weird to people. Scott James you beautiful person I am listening to your song with tears in my eyes because it rings so true especially for me. Thank YOU. Sorry full blown autism playlist going here. I’ll put it in a playlist for you all in another post today. Wish you could see me now just dancing in my chair swaying side to side listening and writing. Love Autism Music it can be some of the most touching music in the world. Even if it does make me teary eyed. Right back to a point. as I was saying I have quite a vocal stim, I chew my tongue quite loudly. Just realised that may be the reason for my ears popping so much lol. Never worked out why they did that before.


Since being diagnosed, I have found myself. Ok, I change my trends as often as the wind, one day I am a rocker, One day cowgirl, Most recently I am preppy I love shirts and long jumpers with cosy leggings and cosy socks and my winter booties. I love the cosy times of the year, Summer isn’t for me I love the transition of autumn to winter. Crisp leaves and Crisper air even if it is wet most of the time in the UK. I have an eclectic taste in life. I have no olfactory senses which are annoying because I am a Yankee candle fan. I love the wintery ones. Even though I cannot smell, there is something soothing to me about candlelight I have my wax burner with Jack Frost. Dad says its such a fresh scent almost like ice and fresh linen and there’s nothing I love better than fresh linen. I am sure I am not the only one who does this but does anyone drink from a straw even in a mug. No matter what the drink is. If I am alone in my room which because it is my office is quite a lot. I make a hot drink and to ensure I don’t throw it around me I put a straw in it. Please, I can’t be the only one.


Right enough for this post I could write about this till the cows come home. Oh, that’s another one for the literally speaking quiz part 2. If you have any more send them to me at autismgirl1@outlook.com

My About for 2016. Tada! LOL I am JOAG, Joag is a fictional character I created to help me write about Autism. JOAG is an acronym for Just One Autistic Girl. JOAG is a unique individual with a passion for autism. Now this year I am taking the blog a step further. Joag is creating a website. Not Just any website A web forum based on autism. creating a safe place for those on the spectrum. In my blog I tell personal stories my personal stories not some fictitious nonsense I make up to make my blog seem more relevant to you. Now I want a personal goal for me. I want to do something for me. Each day I want to be inspiring I am going to run 2 miles everyday. 2 Miles a day times 365 days. 730 Miles is doable and it’s a good start for someone just getting started. But my goal for the blog and site this year is the intervention for bullying. I don't have a stat yet for the number of people in the world with autism. But we do know that it touches 2.8 mil people a day How many people are bullied on the spectrum? How many are silent sufferers? How long will we let this go on?
