Pronouns |  They, Them

ND |  Autistic, PDA'er, ADHD'er, OCD'er & Touretter

Self-Identified aged 40

Sexuality |  Heterosexual (past Questioning & Asexual )

In my later 40's my current and most noteworthy and vital role is devoting my life to being my beloved's 24/7 Carer, champion, colleague/student and safe person in their life. 

 

I've worked closely with ND humans over the past 20+ years. 

 

My first paid job, at 14, started at a supermarket behind the register, where I later became a manager. I advocated for the Affirmative Action program to go ahead within the company where only 1 out of 101 store managers was a non-man.

 

Then a nanny and studied graphic arts at 26. In my 30's I created a highly successful book and program for Neurodivergent young people and adults, based on my journal writings and artworks from 1997. My creativity assisted understanding my thoughts, feelings and lived experiences of; 

Undiagnosed autistic, PDA, ADHD, OCD neurobiology, surviving family violence, destructive regulation (aka addictions), mental illness, eating OCD, poor body image, self-hate, depression, difficult relationships, financial insecurity, unemployment, homelessness, and struggles with day–to–day living and finding my pathway to inner joy and freedom.

Finally, the day has come when I am sending you the little story about me for the website.

 

So here it goes;

A Queer kid who grew up in North of India and came to Australia 13 years ago. Like many others, I am so complex to describe myself briefly, but I will try. As a kid, I was confused yet confident, afraid yet courageous. My mother taught me never to give up, so here I am still hanging onto my dear life - to see that yellow brick road of enlightenment, joy and love.

 

Every day I struggle with my inner demons like many others. My fears stop me as my inner saboteur thinks that I am not good enough, I will never succeed, etc. But I believe that being vulnerable, being able to talk about everything, even the ones I am very ashamed of, will bring us together, and we are not at all different from each other. 

 

I know that I am not alone.

 

I know that there are so many others who feel the same way as me, so if we can heal each other by talking about things that matter, I think it is worth doing it.

 

They say if you have faith in a mustard seed, you can move mountains. A little belief goes a long way. I might not be this expressive every day, but I will keep trying with the little hope and faith I have.
