I could never be myself in the system. Therefore, people didn’t know me well enough to judge me.

The thing that hurts the most is that people didn’t barely give me a chance before they decided I wasn’t worth knowing. I couldn’t be myself when I was ‘supported’ by the system. Those judgements that others made about me while I was in the system I’m hoping will be reconsidered now. I couldn’t show my full personality then because it’s a repressive environment and I am too much not a stereotype to be able to relax to be myself in that situation.

A blog written by a female diagnosed with Asperger Syndrome but suspected PDA in more recent years. Musings of a Trainee Battleaxe was created to not only create awareness of the PDA part of the spectrum; but also to educate the public hopefully creating understanding in order to stop future generations being let down and labelled negatively. Disclaimer: There may be parts of this blog which viewers may find upsetting as it contains accounts of real life events which have been quite traumatic. However, it is all to help create a sense of understanding and combat the fear surrounding all aspects of mental illness and Pathological Avoidance Syndrome (a very little understood part of the autistic spectrum).
