On my twitter account, I have more and more English speaken followers. So, I think it would be good that I blog now and then in English.
It will be an excellent exercice for me to write in the language of Shakespeare.
I asked myself the question if I would create a whole new blog account for my English posts. I decide not to create a new one. Why? Because I already have enough accounts to manage: facebook, twitter, tumblr, emails,.. And I’m spending long times on the Internet. I also have to do other stuff than being online, even if this is what I like to do most. I think I’m addicted to the online world. I feel safe here.
Who am I? My name is Pascale, I am 39 years old. Since March 2005, I have been diagnosed with a trouble in the autism spectrum. I’m still living at home with my parents. Since September 2007, I am doing voluntary work in several autism associations.
For as long as I remember, I have felt different from other people. I can’t really explain in what way I felt different. It was as if I couldn’t really connect with other people, I was lonely, I was unable to engage in small talk with people
Even if I’m more or less independent, I know that for some stuff I will always need help, and that I never will be able to do some other things. A few years ago, I had problems to accept my difference, but not anymore.
I can’t say that I have any passions. And this has been a problem since I was a child. I was a passive child, physically as well as emotionally.
Since my diagnosis, I like reading about autism, discussing about it, and learning about it.
