Having known, and perhaps even still knowing several people with Asperger’s syndrome, made me realise that there a several things on the list of symtoms that make up the spectrum that I also recognize in myself. But the list is pretty diverse and I belive that almost every person out there will recognize certain things from the list in their own behaviour. Growing older, and of course mainly becoming wiser, I like to think that I’ve created a pretty sharp eye that is capable of making a diagnose that is not at all based on studies and knowlegde or experience, but just my gut speaking. Fortunately for me the things that my gut informs me about are correct. Or at least, It’s more often correct than incorrect. That actually helped me to build up my levels of confidence while growing up. I have no idea where I’m going with this by the way. I just wanted to make a quick, short writing, about something that I personally found very good, and felt like sharing it. It’s a docu on netflix and it’s called Asperger’s Are Us (2016). It follows a group of four young Asperger’s who perform a fun show in their country that is lso mostly about autism. That on itself I found interesting but what I found the most enjoyable about it was that it was heartwarming.
It is live now and will be available here and should be seen by all. Not just the fragmented highlights in the media tomorrow but the whole speech is worth watching. Take a moment and listen to what this man has to say. Let’s hope Trump will understand him the way many of us do.
For me personally my life feels pretty much like the following audio bits. It does get rather depressing in the end, but don’t look too much into that. From where we are standing there is only one linear path ahead of us, and that’s not a bad thing, but it can sadden me. No life without death right? No light without darkness. I could go on and on with more of these alcohol infused sayings but I won’t, for now…
I have to resist the temptation to start posting a lot of cat things. But this one.. I just HAVE to post it. Watching this video did not only make me laugh, tears included, but it also somehow made me happy. Honestly, very happy. Behold, the king of cats from the 80’s.
Edit: Turns out I like to come back and rewatch this video. Turns out this video can make me happy whenever I’m sad.
