WE WITH YOU HONEY—WHATEVER! ❤
Four years ago this evening, I was sitting in the stairwell outside, not far from the front door of our apartment. Clutching my smartphone in hand, and a white-hot-burning compulsion to know. Information tidbits like jigsaw puzzle pieces boomeranging around in my head. An empty search box with a blinking cursor at the top of my screen taunted me, daring me to google my query. Checking the boxes next to the questions of the first questionnaire that popped up in the results.
Staring at the quiz score, eyes widening as I scrolled down for the scoring key.
My life was never the same again. Ever.
I’m not sure how long it took for the thought “wow. I am on the Asperger’s/autism spectrum. I am autistic” not to be the first thing to cross my mind every morning, but I’m sure it could be measured in months.
