Announcement: Feeling Fast and Slow

Hi everyone, Ok, so this blog came a little bit faster than I anticipated. I have big news to share. I have just signed my contract for a non-fiction book with Jessica Kingsley Publisher’s, hopefully in bookshops and online retailers for late Spring/early Summer 2024. It’s called Feeling Fast and Slow, or, at least, that’s...

Monday 18th April 2022: Autistic and on Holiday (Finally! + Photos!)

Hi everyone! So here we are! We survived our holiday. As the last blog indicated, I was planning to talk about how (not) to go on holiday when you’re autistic. Due to the sheer amount of stuff that happened in the previous 7 days, I couldn’t. Instead, you’ll get that one at a later point....

Sunday 21st March 2021 – Autistic at Times of Covid-19: Oh hello!

Hi everyone, Sorry it’s been two months. I was pretty busy, most with the medication reduction, which is now finally over! I kept myself off the internet, in order to allow my brain to stabilise. However, I also have been able to join the National Tutoring Programme, which will allow me to leave the benefits...

Sunday 17th January 2021 – Autistic at Times of Covid-19: End to Sectioning for Autistics + Benefits + Reduction + Links

Hi everyone, This week saw some seriously good news. I heard that the government will amend the Mental Health Act to reduce the sectioning of Britons of colour, as well as removing autism and learning disabilities as reasons to detain someone against their will; potentially indefinitely.
