We’ve certainly been on a journey, haven’t we? I’ve been blogging here since just months after I graduated from college. I didn’t know anything much about autism. I had one friend. I had just been faced with the fact that maybe I wouldn’t haven’t a “typical” adult life, and I was learning to deal with that. Juxtapose that to today, when I know autism inside and out. I have friends near and far, and even some in person! And while I fully accept that I may not work or drive or own a house or have children, that’s not going to stop me from being the best Lydia I can be. Yes, we’ve been on a journey.
In the beginning and for several years, blogging was my way of processing the world. I couldn’t make sense of interactions and situations until I’d come and blogged about them. And believe me, I still need to type in order to understand. But, right now, I can’t really publicly type through my life. I need to do it privately.
I’m also running into the fact that, well, I don’t know what to write about anymore. I’m dry. Trust me, it’s not a good feeling.
And so, I’m going to take a break from blogging and recharge my batteries. I’ll come back when I feel ready, whenever that may be. If something happens that I want to blog about while I’m on my break, I’ll come blog about it. Maybe it’s not so much a full break as a… a… relaxing. I think I’ll maintain my Autistic Speaks Facebook page, so just check in there and you’ll know if I’ve posted something.
If you need me, just email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I’m still here 🙂
