What is The Life Autistic?
For starters, it’s a wordplay on the first Wes Anderson film I saw. I have a thing for catchy-sounding branding, and then coming up with content later.
But The Life Autistic is more than just a brand – it’s a story.
For the longest time, my autism had been a close-kept secret. All throughout college, work, and my professional career, as I found more success in life, the less I wanted to share a core component of that life.
The Life Autistic is a catalog of stories, narratives, explanations, apologies, justifications, and humorous asides on living with high-functioning autism.
Sometimes it’s a pithy anecdote. Sometimes it’s a somber realization. Sometimes it’s a cry for help. Sometimes it’s a laugh and a half.
But it’s always real.
And I hope it really helps, for whatever brought you here.
