A bit about disability and a poem

3 Commentaires

I wrote the poem « Scared » on the 19th of December 2008.
It expresses partly how I feel due to my « pervasive development disorder-not over-specified », also known as being part of the « autism spectrum disorder ».

Although I have had this condition ever since birth – maybe due to lack of breathing the first 5 minutes of my life, leading to brain « damage »- I only found out I was « disabled » in 2005 after spending three days literally « out of myself » -following the swallowing of 7 calming pills which did nothing but make me uncontrollable.

I received the final diagnosis in June 2010, 5 years after starting to work on getting the right treatment, diagnosis and therapy.

Although I am recognised as disabled I tried to work, every time failing due to stress. I have now my own little internet business and I write -for my own enjoyment and maybe soon for other’s.

The poem is up on my writing blog.

  1. So sad to read, Marie. But you are doing great! You work from home, you write wonderful poetry and stories. Write a book or short story about your disorder, love. 🙂

    • Thanks, love.
      I have thought about it before, to let people know we are invisible but we exist.
      After all, what I have is a « neuro-diversity » so it’s about diversity still.
      It seems to be my life-long theme, diversity!
