Introduction

My name is Billie-Jade, I am 21 years old. I live with my Dad, my Mum, my younger brother, two gorgeous Springer Spaniels and a tortoise in a small countryside town.

I work as a Business Administrator 9 till 5, four days a week.

I enjoy excercise – I run, I swim and I dance.

I LOVE BOOKS!

I have a wonderful long-term boyfriend and a number of lovely friends whom I adore spending time with.

I listen to music daily; McFly are a true love of mine.

I have multiple special interests, including: Doctor Who, Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter and Superhero’s.

I am Autistic.

I was diagnosed with ASD, (Autism Spectrum Disorder) when I was 19 years old.

Whilst undergoing my diagnosis I turned to the internet to help me better my understanding of the new word which was being used to describe me. A word which, unbeknownst to I, had been a part of me my whole life… ‘Autism’.

There is plenty of information avaliable on Autism, the lack of came in recordings of personal experiences and examples which I could relate to; resources on Autism in individuals similar to my age, but more specifically, on Autism in girls.

I intend to use this blog as a platform to share my story and be the resource I was searching for during my own diagnosis. I hope that my posts will be relatable to those also on the spectrum and provide neurotypicals with an inside eye on life with Autism.
