Essays

A collection of writing on a wide range of topics across all aspects of Neurodivergent life.
I’ve come a long way, done a lot of therapy and healed a lot of my damage. I’ve taken internal notes on the process, and nothing gives my life more meaning than sharing what I’ve learned with other people who need to hear it. These essays are my attempt to catalog and capture my thoughts in a single place on a wide range of topics under the Neurodiversity umbrella.
Note most essays have comments enabled, with the option to submit a star rating based on how much you liked that essay. I’d like to ask folks to submit star ratings even if they don’t have any additional feedback to share — it helps me calibrate, understand where my work needs improvement and will help me automatically generate a list of “top content”.
If you’d like to see me address a specific topic please . These commissions help keep this site running and allow me to pay Guest Writers.
Note that I pay on a sliding scale - I will pay a minimum of $50 for any guest essay I publish, and I’ll go up to $100 or $200 based on author need as self-reported.
