My name is Mimi, and my sons name is WIll, we live within Washington state. I am a single mom raising my Autistic Son son pretty much alone until I moved to Washington state and found a wonderful support group. My son was diagnosed at about 12 years old. I want to share our story and experiences with AMHA to help others to not feel so alone.

I will be discussing topics related to children and what they need to build a successful and happy life.

Well, I thought I should talk about my son's brief encounter with mental health counseling. This was before the diagnosis of Autism was documented. I had started going to a counseling center for myself and thought that it might be a good idea for my son to try it too. It really did seem like a good idea. Sadly, my son wound up g...

I want to talk about something slightly outside of Autism and Mental Health today, although very much related to the subject of Hidden Disabilities. I haven’t shared much on my physical conditions, all of which were diagnosed a few years ago, although much like my Autism, its been something I have struggled with under different labels throughout my life. I want to raise awareness not so much about the said conditions individuall...

I could start with the obvious and say I always felt different from everyone else and how I got diagnosed and my journey there but this is not what this is about. This is about my life for the past year and perhaps some advice about how to deal with unhealthy environments. For context my conditions include ASD, tourettes syndrome, dyspraxia, IBS and a learning difficulty along with anxiety and depression (depression is undiagnos...

It’s half 3 on a cold Wednesday morning and I’m typing this up as I can’t sleep as my head is all over the place right now.

See I’m the girl who can’t take a phone call without shaking like a leaf. I can’t speak on the phone if I don’t personally know you. I used to be able to phone any random number and talk for hours. Funny how things change eh?

Now I’m the opposite. I can’t bare talking on the phone for 5 minutes with any rando...

Maintaining a healthy routine can be an essential aspect of daily living when on the Autistic Spectrum, it can lead to stability and make life more bearable. Although it can also make life very complicated and build very big walls that can limit what someone is able to cope with. What many don’t understand is why it’s so important to those with Autism, what can be involved, how it interacts with other aspects of Autism or the re...
