An Introduction of sorts

Hello and welcome to my blog. this is going to seem rather disjointed and all over the place, but let me say first that i am an adult  male on the autism spectrum in my late 20s and i had an idea for a blog. Which will not just go into the what’s why’s and wtf’s of being autistic but i’m going to try to describe perceptual differences as well. It’s tricky to put into words exactly how ones perception is different if that is all they ever knew.As for myself  i was diagnosed in the early 1990’s and grew up in a time when not very much was known about autism at that time and had to take one day at a time and blunder my way through social interactions and learning of non-verbal cues until i had some basic understanding of how the social world works but it’s still far from complete and i’m learning more every day. I would have liked to know earlier than my mid 20’s that there where high-functioning people like me and that i was not alone. Well that wraps up this introductory post and there will be many more going forward.
