Lately, some of your comments have been making my heart flood with warmth, my hands flap with joy, and my voice squeal with delight.

I appreciate how you make me feel like I’m doing something rare and wonderful, but there are many other autistic writers too! I use the hashtag #ActuallyAutistic in all my posts because that’s the best way to find us. Right now I only post on Facebook, but that hashtag is also on Twitter, Instagram, Tumblr, and elsewhere.

When I include another hashtag too, like #BeingAutistic or #BridgingTheGap, it’s there to categorize the post. You can find more of my thoughts on the same topic by clicking the hashtag.

I guess this one is a #meta post! 🙂

P.S. I write from my personal experience as an autistic. What I share is not a substitute for advice from an autistic medical professional. Also, some of my opinions have changed since I first wrote them.
