I’m an adult with autism, or autistic if you prefer. I probably use the latter more often but and I know why I prefer it but with everything going on in my life I don’t have the energy to devote a lot of it to that. While I like to write I go through long spells of not finding the motivation to. I was a bit slow to catch on to the blogging thing but I hope it will provide me with more momentum. I live in Canada with my dog, computer and the newest addtion to our family the tablet.

Gareeth I dont know if you are into these types of things but, I have nominated you for “Most Inspiring Blog Award” here: http://j9sopinion.com/2013/03/31/inspiringblogs/
… I find your words refreshing, honest, intelligent, and the positions you take on topics, commendable. Thank You for inspiring me to be a better person, better blogger (definitely lol) and inspire me with each post!! Thank You regardless of what you chose but let me know either way! JayNine over at: http://j9sopinion.com/ or email response to email@example.com
A sincere thanks!
I think I would never get around to doing all those steps but thanks for the nomination.
Oh i am just so flattered that you took the time out of your own life to share with me the bright email. Bright as in your share brightened my day. Thank you for your response much appreciated!
You’ve been quiet these last few days, I hope things are OK? Maybe this will cheer you up – it’s a small thing, but hopefully you’ll smile.
I was surprised with this very cool award, so now I get to nominate some of the bloggers whose musing, writings and rantings are the highlight of my day (or night).
So, this one is for you.
The Wonderful Team Member Readership Award
Bit of a mouthful.
If you’d like to accept, you can…
Get your award here!
Or if the link doesn’t work…
Thanks. I’m not okay. I am flattered but it’s one of those kind of blog awards I would just never get around to doing all the steps of. Thanks though.
It’s a pleasure. I am sorry I am so far away. If all I can do is lend an ear all you have to do is ask.
It is me again. You don’t have to do anything I promise, but I wanted you to have this anyway. I hope things will soon look up again.
You have been officially nominated by me for the Interesting Blog Award. It was created by crazybunny and given to my by Running without Socks. Now it is yours. Do with it as you will. At the very least I hope it gives you a smile!
Please link to http://furrynuff.wordpress.com/2013/04/25/i-am-an-interesting-blogger-it-is-official/ to accept your award!
Thanks for making my life a little bit more interesting.
Hey gareeth! love your blog!
i am an admin of the blog firstname.lastname@example.org
We have written about a petition that you may be interested in. it is calling to boycott Alfonso Cuaron’s Film Gravity, and agitate him to apologize for his involvement with the Autism Speaks PSA “i am Autism”
We need 500 signatures, will one of the signatures be yours?
if you want to join the conversation on twitter or facebook, use the hashtags #boycottcuaron #boycottgravity and #autismrights
I will have a look. I sadly do think most of the entertainment industry does not think about this and simply does what is fashionable so I think as a community we need a more direct way to get the message to the actual stars mindlessly following a trend but certainly this is a start.
I have been thinking of you lately. How is your health situation? Is your help system any better?
It’s actually hit what I hope will be as bad as it can get but I have my doubts.
Yes but thanks for asking. I keep trying to blog because a few people were concerned but that is going about as well as everything else.
I’ll just keep on asking every once in a while.
I also rather say I’m autistic and not I have autism, because it’s a part of who I am and influences everything I think, say, and do. It’s what makes my world what it is, for better or worth.
I read somewhere it’s hard for autistic people to concentrate and complete tasks. Although that may not always be the case, it is with me. I struggle to complete tasks. sometimes I don’t have the energy required either.
I live with my cat and my internet too. animals are an autistic person’s best companions.

Thanks. For letting me know. I had actually forgotten I had left a blog up from the way back when. I filled it out although I feel going with my alien name means I am way down a list where the a’s dominate
You’re welcome, and thanks for writing your blog. The list wouldn’t exist without bloggers like you.
You are listed fairly high (about 15% from top) on the Alexa-ranked list on the main blog page.
