Everyone struggles in different areas. That is just part of being human. This week’s video talks about some of the reasons I’m a mess.
Lyric Rivera, an Autistic self-advocate from Texas, runs the the internationally recognized neurodiversity lifestyle blog Neurodivergent Rebel. Neurodivergent Rebel was opened in 2016, as a way to introduce people unfamiliar with autism to neurodiversity. The blog, which is sometimes released in written format and also via YouTube video, explores the ideology of neurodiversity and the creative expressions of autistic people. Riveras’ blog pushes for acceptance of neurological differences and respect for the autonomy of neurodivergent people. Lyric is also known as the pioneer of the #AskingAutistics hashtag, which is often accompanied by a short question about everyday autistic experiences. This simple hashtag connects neurodiverse people who would not otherwise have a reason to engage with each other to foster understanding of the autistic experience. View all posts by Lyric Holmans

Haha. We are a mess in our own ways. I can’t begin to tell you how messy I am. Most of them are linked to clumsiness and forgetfulness lol.
Glad I’m not the only one…lol. Yes, putting things in a ‘safe place’. Not a good idea. We need a ‘safe place’ log book that is tied down like my computer password book. Now, if we could only remember to write things in it…
Just lost my keys too. Actually, my Aspie son used them and left them in the ignition of our truck for a few days. I asked him if he knew where they were…he answered no, even though I kept going on and on about how I’d lost my keys and how could I have done that?
After I found them he remembered he was the culprit.
I often have a selection of random bruises and scrapes and usually have no recollection of how I got them. My many autopilot moments.
I guess my comment is: Everyone suffers on the inside.
I thought you were cool at first but now you kind of seem like a normal person. I understand this would/could be construed as aggression and I haven’t really planned out a response for that but in any case you should take care of your image more: it’s kind of harmful. Again, an innocent statement bastardized by society and it’s completely my fault. Well in any case. So it goes unspoken.
