Even though I subscribe to a few, I have trouble reading most autism blogs. I can only handle so much debate about what causes autism, how many cases of autism have been diagnosed, and where the research money is going.
My son has autism. He will always have autism. My focus is on watching him grow up as happy, healthy and prepared for the world as possible. Which is exactly my focus for our daughter who does not have autism.
Several months back, I stumbled onto a blog maintained by a bunch of college aged people with Aspergers. It was amazing for me to read the posts and see inside their heads. Unfortunately, the blog had already been abandoned by that point.
Most of the people that write about autism have kids and post stories about their kids, which is why I stay subscribed to those blogs.
But, my new favorite blog that has any relation to autism is written by Nat. If my math is correct, he is 17. He has autism. He doesn’t post everyday, and none of the posts are very long. He doesn’t talk about causes and diagnoses. He just writes about his day and always makes me smile.
Keep writing Nat.
