Autism was never something discussed as being feasible with me. Prior to learning that Autism was a spectrum of disorders I had assumed it was the low functioning non-verbal that I had encounterd before. When a psychologist I was seeing suggested that I look into Asperger's further because he suspected I fit the criteria for a diagnosis I was astounded at how accurate the symptoms/criteria were. My life seamed to come into context.
At first it was a hard struggle to start to see myself in the light of Autism and that it was not a death sentence or an excuse to continue to live my life in a depressed, repressed way.
I had a terrible break up with the mother of my children in the very start of 2010 that shook my foundation, I felt so utterly lost but strongly desired to heal. Medications had always failed to truly treat my condition and luckily I took myself to a yoga class, where I found my solace. I could be around people but not have to truly engage with others. I continued diligently practicing yoga and have since became a certified teacher and have taught nearly 1500 hours of yoga.
Recently I have taken up acro yoga which has really tested my growth through yoga by becoming very much integrated in touch with others.
I have so much more to say but little time right now to get it all out.
