Note For Anyone Writing About Me

Guide to Writing About Me

I am an Autistic person,not a person with autism. I am also not Aspergers. The diagnosis isn't even in the DSM anymore, and yes, I agree with the consolidation of all autistic spectrum stuff under one umbrella. I have other issues with the DSM.

I don't like Autism Speaks. I'm Disabled, not differently abled, and I am an Autistic activist. Self-advocate is true, but incomplete.

Leaving India

So, I only have a couple hours left in India. I didn't really understand how today's company visit was related to what I want to do, but most of the visits didn't relate to what I actually want to do, so whatever. It is what it is.
Over this trip, I learned a decent bit. I learned about manufacturing techniques, which was kind of the point. I got reminded of just how far from the norm my biorhythms are-being up by 6am and crashing at 8pm is not the college norm. There were times when we hadn't even eaten yet at 8!
I also learned that some people can actually be decent human beings about autism and the difficulties I have that are best explained by the fact that I'm autistic. (Only learned this because I also learned just how obnoxious my sensory issues really can be.)
Most of what I've learned falls into one of those two categories. So yeah. India was good.
