Hello, my name is PuppyGriffon. I am an Autistic young woman. My special interests include summer, fireflies, and psychology. Besides Autism I also have sensory processing disorder, dysgraphia, dyslexia, slow processing speed, a sleep disorder, an anxiety disorder, and schizotypal personality disorder.
I had a lot of symptoms of Autism when I was young. I stimmed a lot and eventually found out how to make friends at 10. I also had trouble with sensory processing disorder, my most vivid memories of this is running away from a wedding reception when I was 11 because the music was too loud. (That was hard, because my dress was so long). I hated eye contact too.
When I was a teenager I was diagnosed with Autism. My teachers noticed a lot of symptoms of autism in me a suggested I get a diagnosis. It turned out I did have Autism.
My Life Now
My life now is great. I take headphones with me wherever go, have lots of stim toys, and talk with my friends. While I do still face some discrimination, my life is mostly good.
