Hey everyone - I've been pretty inactive on the forums as I emigrated to Germany four years ago and have been struggling to find my feet here, but I secured a diagnosis, which was really a huge relief!
Anyway, I had the opportunity to give a TEDx talk and I would love to hear what you think about it... did I actually represent the Aspie community accurately? I should have asked beforehand, but honestly didn't think about how far this video would go afterwards - I'd hate to think that I have made anyone else's life more difficult by telling my own story!
I hope you enjoy the talk either way, and I've had some feedback from people saying that they could relate to this and honestly, that made ME feel more like I'm not alone! Emigrating has been tough - I am extremely socially isolated but dealing with that is a challenge. Either way, it was nice to reach out into the ether in an unconventional way and experience understanding. I hope you all find the same!!
I have to quickly jump in and say that I loved these responses so much that I would like to reply individually - I feel so relieved that what I said was relatable and won't cause more problems to people who have the same struggles as me! :) You're all simply amazing for sharing as much as you have here and I have some stuff to take care off first, but am definitely coming back to this.
Thanks for taking the time to watch and respond - much appreciated :) <3
