”Cake saying Happy birthday Mandy in messy letters. Or as I like to think of it the inspiration porn cake”. I am Autistic, have been since I took my first breath like this woman who decorated this cake. Nothing I do is going to change this fact. Why has this made so many rounds on … More Sometimes it is more than just being nice
If you haven’t noticed by reading my blog, I am a Autistic who feels no cure is needed, and I believe in neuro diversity, but if you haven’t well I just told you.

Some people look at services for the disabled as a whole, as well a waste. That the disabled get them and then go back to not working, and or not trying.

Some consider it only teaching the dog yourself, and feel it is also going through a private trainer. The fact is the ADA the governing law on the subject … More Why I defend owner trainers…..

It is one thing for the mother of a Autistic child say ”I want my child to be like you”. And if they say that I hope they understand even … More I am not your inspiration
Like many Autistics I am both drawn to sensory input, and dislike like it. Depending on what it is it either makes feel wonderful, or makes me feel sick. To give you a idea I happen to very much like apples, but when I happen to try and eat one as I am watching tv … More The sound of music
Don’t assume I don’t know about what a tether dog is. When I myself am Autistic, and use to wander as a child. I did not need a furry paper weight to keep me from doing this. Until I learned that I could not, and should not wander I was tethered to my mother. My … More Don’t assume I know…………..
