About Us
Us is mostly me, . I’ve been toying with variations on spaces like this for a few years now, and this is the version I’m finally ready to invest time and energy into.

This place is intended as a community resource and centralized repository of information about neurodiversity. The essays I’m writing and hosting are coming from places of lived experience, and represent challenges that real people overcome and insights that we’ve had on our own journeys of healing and self-acceptance.

Who am I? I’m just Myk, a goofball and software engineer who experienced really bad autistic burnout shortly after his self-diagnosis at age 34. It took me about three years of therapy, a formal confirmation of autism and a surprise diagnosis of ADHD to rebuild a strong sense of identity, and a large part of that has been the work that I’ve done to share my own growth with others like me but who lack the resources I used to get help.

I encourage you to take everything I say with a grain of salt, and to use the public feedback form to help me put forward the best possible version of this site that I can.

Contributing
