Welcome to my wiring

I am a 40-year-old mother of three children, living in the UK, who was diagnosed as autistic and ADHD only very recently, having spent decades berating myself for being unable to do what seemed to come naturally to everyone else and for never quite fitting in.

Knowing that I am fundamentally different has given me permission and the courage to explore and (re)create my own identity, by leaving behind neurotypical expectations of how and who I should be.

I am documenting my thoughts and discoveries here to find clarity for myself and also in the hope that sharing my own insights and experiences might be helpful for anyone else on the same journey.
