I’ve never made a secret of the matter that I am autistic. Resultantly, I am adversely affected by changes in my environment. Specifically, I haven’t been productive or posting because the boy has been out of school for the Easter break. I’ve written several drafts while he’s been here but nothing has pulled together with any cohesion. Mike returns to school tomorrow and I expect my productivity to return soon after. I guess I should have said something sooner but I’m always so sure that this time, I’ll be able to beat it and do things differently. I’m a little embarrassed about it. In exchange for my candor, I’d appreciate your compassion and patience.
