Lost Girls Represent

In my research on neurodivergence, I’ve focused quite a bit on its presentation in girls/women/XX, because that’s what I was and am, even I haven’t experienced textbook gender roles. The term “The Lost Girls” keeps popping up, referring to girls born before experts started studying or identifying them as being on the spectrum. Even though … Continue reading Lost Girls Represent

A Lifetime of Socially Acceptable Obsessions

Every once in a while, something happens and you’re allowed to be really focused on the news.

But at the same time, … Continue reading A Bit of Limbo: Between Self-Assessment and Professional Diagnosis

Numbers Part 1: Math

Sometimes I can tell a migraine is coming on when the world seems a little brighter and more colorful, sometimes there’s a nausea that seems tied to my head, and other times, I have an intense urge to count and roll loose change. I can find calm in dumping the change from my Darth Vader … Continue reading Numbers Part 1: Math
