Incomplete autism (?)


the silent wave

Sometimes I feel like I’m not exactly a “completely” autistic person, in a way.

What does that mean?

Well, it’s kind of hard to pin down, but I’ll do my best.

I can say with certainty that it’s not like I feel like a fraud.  I know that I’m on the Asperger’s/autism spectrum.  I knew it before I went for my formal evaluation.  I knew it when I looked up the characteristics.  I knew it when I read the incredible blog posts of other people on the Asperger’s/autism spectrum.  I knew it when I started blogging.  I knew it when I joined social media.  And finally, it was corroborated by my formal diagnosis.

So, I know that I’m for real.  Oh, there have been a tiny (single-handed) few people who were pretty much out of touch with reality, who tried to accuse me of being a fraud, or somehow less-than-real.

About Jonathan Caswell

Poet, author, servant of God the Heavenly father and the Lord Jesus Christ...working out his salvation with fear and trembling. - Not trusting in his own deeds, but depending totally upon the finished sacrificial work of Jesus Christ to be, by God's reckoning, a new creature, clothed in Christ's righteousness...which mortal humankind can never attain by their own weak efforts, apart from faith in Christ's work on our behalf. - College-educated, yet wise enough to see that what a man does will not be his ultimate identity nor affect how God sees him or her. - Called by God to do a very difficult thing...apart from God's grace, mercy and love the sinner (which we all--by nature--are) but hate the sin, which is only paid through Christ, God's Son, - My own God-given gift is that of being a Poet..showing that in all parts of life...God has a loving part in hard as that is to always understand or perceive...given life's realities! Come join me on my journey of discovery?.
