It's Not The End

Hello everyone,

yesterday I was talking to an amazing lady that runs a local autism support called Vee. We were just talking about the usual stuff, my blog, what's next, etc.
Then I said something to her that inspired me to write this post. I have read many articles, post on social media and other places that described how people feel when they finally get the autism diagnosis. One thing that you have to remember is to take when you are told with a pinch of salt. Its a doctor's job to prepare you for the worst case scenario. In fact this is rarely the truth. They are just covering their backs. Not long ago I wrote a post about what was written on my statement. It's no where near correct. 
I was basically told I'd never be able to achieve anything in my life. Now for my mum that must have been soul crushing. But the fact of the matter is very few of those predictions have come true. Even the few that are true, I push myself to conquer every day. 
If you help to teach your child that anything is possible, then they will be believe it. If you constantly dwell on the possible difficulties then they are much more likely to happen. What I'm trying to say is be supportive, be caring, be loving. Its not hard to do really and it's something every parent should do, no matter if their child is autistic or "normal".

Thanks for reading,



  1. Hi Ben, it's great to read your story and for you to have such a positive approach to life. Everyone faces challenges, whoever they are. Having autism is a different challenge, but how we face these challenges is what's important. Keep up the writing. I have shared your blog on my twitter. You can also check mine out, if you like

  2. Thanks for reading Bev, it means a lot to me to hear you say that. I enjoy writing my blog but it isn't always the easiest thing to do. I'm glad that there are people out there who are enjoying reading my blog and I hope it has helped some people with understanding a little more what an autistic person thinks and feels.
