Written by Tammie Lee, an #ActuallyAutistic adult, with the intention of educating children about neurodiversity (including ADHD and Autism), embracing differences, and accepting one and other as they are.

My Story

My brain has always worked differently, and I always assumed that there was something “wrong” with me as to why I felt so different. I just got on with life, masked my struggles and would let it out when I got home. Think of a bottle of fizzy drink being shaken up all day, then taking the lid off at home. That was me.

Looking back on my childhood I struggled socially, and have experienced sensory difficulties and anxiety for as long as I can remember. Autism wasn’t as well known back then, and certainly for girls it is even harder to receive a diagnosis - which is a whole other story.

Fast forward to my early 30’s where after my two children are diagnosed, everything about my entire existence starts to make sense. I finally receive the diagnosis of being autistic myself.

 

Since affirming my own identify as an autistic woman I’ve never felt more “myself”. I run a successful company, have a supportive family and a handful of great friends, and am overall pretty happy! 

 

I wish for children to never grow up feeling as though they are not good enough, and I believe it is important to explain neurodiversity to all children from a young age, in language that is age appropriate, so that children never have a chance to feel as though there is something wrong with them.
