Not Weird Just Autistic is run by J.R. and Shannon, both adults with autism and more specifically, adults with Asperger's who were diagnosed later in life (Shannon in her 30s and J.R. in his 40s). We have each struggled in life, as does everyone with or without a disability, to find our place and purpose in today’s world.
In different ways, our respective diagnoses provided explanations and relief, while also reinforcing the sense of separateness and inferiority that come from lives spent thinking, perceiving, and behaving differently from the majority of our peers. We work continually to accept ourselves and our challenges, to value our own unique perspectives and talents, and to find our voices.
If you're looking for answers with autism in adults and Aspergers in adults, you've come to the right place.
