Essays and poetry about autism, neurodivergence, disability, and life

About

“When you’re a kid, they tell you it’s all… grow up. Get a job. Get married. Get a house. Have a kid, and that’s it. But the truth is, the world is so much stranger than that. It’s so much darker. And so much madder. And so much better.”

-Doctor Who, “Love and Monsters”

Hello!

Welcome to my little corner of the internet. My name is Sabrina and I use they/them pronouns and identify as nonbinary gendervague.

I am autistic as well as having a mixed bag of mental illness and ADHD (schizoaffective disorder, generalized anxiety disorder, PTSD). I am pro self-diagnosis and very opposed to Autism Speaks.

I am a spoonie living with stage IV endometriosis, fibromyalgia, and Ehlers Danlos Syndrome.

I am a rape and IPV survivor and volunteer with the RAINN Speakers Bureau speaking to high schools and colleges about the effects of rape, rape culture, and consent.

This blog is mainly about autism, mental illness, and life with chronic illness as well as explorations of trauma.
