Aspie State of Mind is a passion project that started in early 2017 at the suggestion of my husband. At first, I wasn’t sure that I could do this – giving an on-the-spectrum perspective of life. But after a slow first year I realized that I could, and most importantly, that I wanted to.

At 17, I received a diagnosis for Asperger Syndrome with Sensory Processing Disorder. It’s taken me a long time to understand what this means, and my hope is to share the knowledge I’ve gained to disprove stereotypes and raise awareness for Neurodiversity.

Neurodiversity is the idea that neurological differences (like Aspergers and SPD) are a normal, natural variation of the human genome. My condition is not the result of an illness, injury, disability, disease or vaccine – this is the way I was born. It’s my genetic predisposition, and I don’t believe that I, or others like me, need to be cured. Rather so, neurodiverse individuals need understanding – and at times, different accommodations.

Keep in mind, that everyone is unique. Everyone has their own story, their own truth, and their own experiences. Aspie State of Mind just reflects one – mine.
