As I wrote in the “About…” tab of my blog, “Over 50 years of a rather odd life, came to a sudden realisation, with all the clicks and cogs falling to their right places.” Little did I know at the time, that the sudden realisation … Continue reading The Stockholm Syndrome Symptomatology of Neurodiversity Militantism
