My Blogging Story

Not many people know how I got into blogging about autism and my background. In school, I was well read and loved researching topics of my interest as many autists do. But here’s my story and since we are at the beginning of a new year I think it’s fitting I tell you.

 

My love for autism began long before I was ever diagnosed. My nature is to always do for others what you would like done in return. So basically being a helpful little mouse. I knew kids in school who were different to me and the first day I noticed something different about me was my grandmother’s funeral. When we were talking about going all I could think about was my normal routine and that if I went to this could i go back to school afterwards. I know who would want to go to school after such a tragedy. My gran had always been into books and she loved reading to me and though I had just turned 8 and I don’t have very many memories of her. I do remember her reading with me whatever books I brought with me either from school or whatever. Then when I turned 14 and got my diagnosis, I could understand why I acted so differently to everyone else at that time. That wasn’t true with my grandad when he passed, I sunk low. But I’ll talk about that later. I digress, After I got my diagnosis I did everything I could to learn about autism, I looked on sites, I read stories, blogs mainly and I wrote a diary down of everything I did and was feeling, kind of like my own personal blog, Then when I sunk low into a bad depression because I couldn’t understand why a man who I loved dearly would forget me, EOSD early onset dementia I will never forgive you for taking my grandad away from me and I know now that he did not get it as a result of me being autistic- I blamed myself for 5 years. Then back in 2013, I wrote under another name as I decided it would be good to teach myself more I am an adult now and I should know what life has in store for me this period. I got some mean critics on blogger, where I used to write and this made me bad again so I stopped and thought whats the point. Then in August 2015 I finally picked my ass back up and saif stuff it I wanna write again, I want to help people and the best way I know how because I love to talk is blogging. I use a dictaphone app on my computer and just ramble into it as it translates my spoken word into text and then I copy and paste it in here and use Grammarly to check my spelling. I have never felt better about myself than when I am writing as JOAG, she gives me a sense of security in myself that I have never discovered before. I can be free and open with you guys and I love it, I will touch more on my life soon when I go into details about my exciting project I am working on this year.

 

Oh yeah and I finally got round to making one of these up

 

Joag’s finishing tagline as many people seem to have some sort of uplifting message and that’s something I am gonna do every day, I am going to use my media networks for the better and promote positivity within autism. So today’s is

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?
