Last night I went to a social, organised by DANDA, a group which deal with people with autism, aspergers, dyspraxia, dyslexia, and other similar conditions. I hadn't been to such a meeting before, time and circumstance getting in the way, but after work last night I set off to Central London feeling a little bit nervous.
Normally in these kind of stories, people say "I needn't have worried!" but I did feel slightly unsure throughout, although I am very glad I went and plan to go to similar events. It's simply meeting people with a similar condition and I have not knowingly done that before (save one or two individuals in the past), and in turn that has helped make me face up to what I have, and coming out and publicly admitting to having a mild form of dyspraxia in any way after a no of years is tough.
Hopefully however, this will be the start of something good
