UNMASKED: Snippets & notes from a lifetime collection of journals  (pre-diagnosis).
Advocating for autistic acceptance.

Oftentimes I fall into the most ridiculous and not-quite-inexplicable fatalistic attitudes. Logically, I can understand that I am not a catalyst – when do logic, reason mix with beliefs, emotions?!


Not in that state right now, but I can amusedly ponder: Do I find tragedy/comedy because my life is tragic/comic? Or do I make it thus?


I ADORE my life, dear!

This whole entry, in hindsight, is highly illogical. 🖖🏽


I was not a catalyst for the dramatic turns my life had taken; the way society (always negatively) interpreted my actions and words was.
