A blog written by a female diagnosed with Asperger Syndrome but suspected PDA in more recent years. Diary Of A Painfully Shy Introvert 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. Please join the blogs facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/emlucythomson or the twitter page at http://www.twitter.com/emmalucythomson

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 Demand Avoidance Syndrome (a very little understood part of the autistic spectrum).
