I am one of many that suffer from both mental illness ans Aspergers Syndrome. It's a constant struggle for me in my life. I isolate a lot. I have daily routine rituals. If any of my rituals are delayed, I have an emotional meltdown. I have a fascination for vocabulary and anagram words. I enjoy free hand drawing, making jewelry and computer science. My artistic values are from my autism. My autism is unique.It's a part of me. In the beginning when I was first diagnosed with ADS three years ago, I was hard for me to accept the DX. A few months later I was like, "Hey, my autism has bought out my artistic values. I kinda like this". Since then , I'm educating myself with doing more research on ADS.
