"Your Bleeding From your Head..."


The last few weeks have been very intense. This post tells the story of my recent trip to A&E.

Little achievements


Often its the little things which make the biggest difference to day to day life. In the last few weeks i have had a series of small achievements, so i wanted to share them here and give some context on why they are more meaningful than they appear.

Developing an autistic Identity.


In the last two years i have had to develop a true "autistic" identity. This post looks at the main lessons i have learnt along the way.

PIP assessment


My Support Network.


As we get towards the end of 2016 i wanted to document my support network now and also write a bit about the changes which are coming in 2017.

New support plan going well.


A post looking at the achievements i have made this week and why i think they were possible. Also a look at some of the changes which are coming up.

How we are managing the transition to paid support


I’m taking this week off from BBC work in order to free up energy for another transition. This week will hopefully be the first week where i spend more time looked after by paid support than by my friends.

This is a milestone for my transition to independence, or at least, my transition to autonomy.

A good week.


A really positive week to relax and recharge. Positive noises from social service (after a trip to anxiety hell!) and an interesting experiment.

Morning Support.


This week I am running an experiment. Here’s the details with some background on why and what we hope to achieve.

Paying for Supoort.


One of the big changes for 2015 was that I started buying in support for myself. We call them babysitters ;) it’s slightly tongue in cheek. Worryingly accurate!

A big update! (Health, Getting Out & Support Changes)

Spaced Out & Smiling is about exploring the fun side of Autism, and trying to understand what it means to be Autistically Happy.
