Growing up as me-18/3/18
Hey guys I am with a new blog and this one is about my life growing up and what it was like for me. I am now nearly 24 but I’ve been through a lot so in this blog I want to pick out a few things from throughout my life and discuss them.

So the first thing about my life that I wanna discuss is how it started. I was born 13 days late therefore my birthday should be the 17th of May and not the 30th. I feel like this is the reason I can barely sleep now too. I clearly loved a snooze before birth therefore I need to balance it out now. I was also struggling with breathing problems too so my life didn’t really start out too well.
Growing up with Asperger’s Syndrome was so bad too. I couldn’t act like the other kids in school so I was always isolated and picked out for being rather different from everyone else. This lead to a lot of bullying and being upset almost constantly and it ruined my development in life so much. I feel like I’m making up for lost time these days but my school years are ones I’d rather forget about.
I also grew up in a family where we didn’t have an awful lot of money. I come from a rather working class family where a lot of my uncles were building site workers and as I’ve had a lot of nerve damage in my left shoulder I couldn’t follow up in their footsteps. I am probably one of the physically weaker males in my family but I make up for that with having the mental strength and drive to do my absolute best in life.
In high school I developed a bit more and began to gain a little control of my Asperger’s Syndrome. Due to this I was also able to cope with all of my classes very easily and this allowed me to be free of not needing a support teacher there all of the time to help me. I managed to pull out great results in my 4th year exams too after a bad start to the year so as a 16 year old I wasn’t doing too badly.
I’d rather forget about my 5th and 6th year though as both of these went below average at best. I lost the ability to sleep consistently which ruined my physical health a lot. I was in such a bad place mentally and when I turned 19 as I’ve explained before I was at my suicidal worst. I’m so lucky to be alive when I think back and ever since I’ve been much stronger mentally and this has only continued even more to the present day.
I had more mental problems in 2015/2016 but I’ve moved on past them and when I stopped drinking alcohol in April 2017 I made the best decision of my life. I’ve had no mental blips at all and began to recover physically. I’m now at my peak and I am looking forward to the rest of 2018 and beyond. I’m so happy with my achievements which include lasting 14 months and onwards in a relationship as well as everything with my blogs. I want to build something special with my blogging and I feel like I have the effort levels and motivation to achieve what I want from blogging.
Anyway guys this has been a short discussion of my life. I am to provide you guys with more updates in the future and hopefully I can keep up with providing positive vibes for you all too.
Thank you for all of the wonderful support on my content and thank you for reading.

  1. All aspies should learn self-defense because bullying is something we face constantly. I learned, and it have helped me a lot.
    I’m not sure depression is something that is caused by isolation in Asperger, or if it’s the result of how our brains are wired and not necessarily situation-based. Then again, being bullied as a child can cause many problems with self-esteem and trust.
    I’ve had sleep problems ever since kindergarten. It’s an aspie thing. Our brains won’t shut up. That’s the problem.
