Part three of my blog contains posts that stretch over a six-month period. At the start I sound quite resigned and sanguine. A sad inevitability has crept in, I was no longer imagining futures with happily-ever-afters in them. You will spot that I swing between including myself as part of the autistic “tribe” (14.6) and clearly stating I am not like them at all (14.5). Picking up and dropping the identity like a garment I cannot work out how to wear.
