About Myself and how I changed throughout the years.

(Update on 27th July 2016)

How would I sum myself up as simply as I can? I am just an ordinary 26 year old man, who loves his gaming, sport, work, friends and family, who wants to try his best everyday and doesn’t want to let people down.

I have autism but I feel like everyone else in this world, I don’t talked much bout my condition although it is something that will stay with my throughout my lives.

There are areas which i was more successful at like maths, IT and I do remember stuff but in terms of English or other subjects do tend to struggle, henceforth why i got a learning difficulty.

Throughout my early life as a kid, I struggled to find out who I was, I tend to be aggressive without knowing I actually do that and only eat bread and marmite, even at Christmas.

Education started off a struggle but education was always going to be a slow progress, speech on some areas like ch for example wasn’t very good at all.

Finding friends was hard and nobody seems to want to go near me. I felt all along, especially if I was invited to a kids party.

It was only till I went to a special school called the Priory school that I felt very comfortable and was starting to see who I really was. I will always thank the school to what they did to me.

College was an opportunity to find my own path and become more independent and achieve a grade in A Level Maths was a fantastic achievement as well as a C in GCSE English.

I have worked in a factory, a production operative, in food, in online sales and now as a post worker, a job with a long future in prospect.

Over the time, I feel more confident in my social life, through the help of work, family and Facebook. Even doing interviews for my radio show is a lot of fun and that has helped me throughout.

I will give up hope though. Most questions when I was younger asked to me was, are you gay? Are you a virgin? Well now I can say with a big smile on my face, I am not gay or a virgin, so there.

One of the reasons for doing these blogs is because there are certain things that is better said writing down and it makes you feel better to get them off your chest. Now it’s a showcase where people show off their writing talents to the world.

Overs are just for fun and to try and inspire other people. I will keep posting blogs about different things and hopefully make some people notice.

For more information about myself and the kind of music I like, I was lucky enough to be interviewed by the brilliant Iris. This interview I really enjoyed because it was honest talking and a great laugh. Have a listen 😃

  1. Excellent bio, David! I can relate to much of what you’ve shared here. I wasn’t diagnosed as autistic until age 51 because in the 1960s and 1970s,autism wasn’t understood as well as it is nowadays. Only those who were on the lower-functioning end of the spectrum were recognized as autistic. Many people still confuse autism with Down syndrome, though both conditions can coexist in a person.

    I’m looking forward to enjoying your radio show and future blogposts.

  2. My brother was diagnosed with autism at a very young age, and now my child is on the spectrum as well. It’s kind if interesting to read your posts to get an inside look on your views on life and the obstacles you’ve overcome!

  3. Hi David,
    I really appreciate your blog and for sharing so candidly about yourself and your journey with Autism. I have some family members who have been diagnosed on the spectrum and some older ones who appear to be but haven’t received an official diagnosis. I love how you are using a struggle in your life to open the doors to encouraging others. I believe that it’s completely true that our misery can turn into our greatest message. Keep trudging! All the best, Shannon

  5. Greetings! You found me and now I’ve found you! I was excited to read your blog. For many years I was a teacher for young children with autism with a focus on language and social skills. Many of them are in their teens now. One thing I liked best was getting the kids to like story books and doing art. Can you share with me some of your favorite picture books from your childhood? Mine are all the Eric Carle books and Patricia Pollaco. Do you like to read or paint?
