Hey, I’m Emmy!

Hey guys! I’m Emmy, and I’m seventeen. I was diagnosed with Aspergers Syndrome when I was seven, and I’ve been living with it for the past ten years.

It’s not all awful, it has some bad parts, sure – my inability to read people’s body language, social difficulties, and all that good stuff – but it also comes with perks. I’m able to be hyper-focused on stuff that matters to me, and get more done. I also have a special interest going on all the time – sometimes multiple ones at once – and right now it’s my hedgehog, Pumpkin, who you can see in the photo above.

Well, I’ll be posting stuff here about being on the spectrum. Whether you’re on the spectrum, love someone on the spectrum, or just wanna learn more about it, follow my posts and read ’em!
