Hi everyone. I have an autism spectrum condition. It's invisible but it affects me every day.

    Hi nice to meet you. I have autism too. I live in a residential care home in Dorset and I do work experience in a charity shop and an elderly people’s nursing home. I like seeing my mum and dad but not at the moment because of lockdown but they sent me a new weighted blanket with dinosaurs on as a present. Do you live by yourself or with your family or with housemates? Do you have work? What are your interests and hobbies?

    Hello :) nice to meet you!

    I also have autism and not many if any of my friends know about it as I am still coming to terms with my diagnosis.

    How are you today? :) what are your hobbies/interests? and what do you like to do in your spare time?

    It amazes me how people on the spectrum can be so similar in their interests and I love when I find those similarities.

    Hope your well :)
