About Me, briefly.
...And why I decided to start blogging about my journey
On the surface I look like an ordinary mid-30s mum of a young child. However, I had a major breakdown in 2018 and then again in 2019. It was the result of a perfect storm of past trauma, being a new mum, living with chronic pain, being sensory overloaded and feeling like an outsider in the room. I was yet to discover I was actually autistic. Weird thing is no one except my husband even realised the emotional and physical pain I was in. I hid it all behind a smile.
After a long journey of finally being diagnosed autistic, actually being listened to by my therapist, battling my old demons and a lot of soul searching; I have accepted I am not ordinary...and that is perfectly okay. I am living my life less ordinary - I am a mum less ordinary.
I now embrace being different. I am sharing my story so that others can relate and see quicker than I did, that it is actually okay to be different and to not always fit the mould.
