I write informational and educational blog posts about autism and mental health. For instance, I write about my struggles with autism, employment issues among autistic adults. For mental health, I write about anxiety and depression. This will include my struggles with the disorder. How to help someone with the disorder etc.

An Open Letter To A Person I Admire
This is an open letter to a person I admire. I will have small subliminal hints since I get ridiculed for admiring someone. I'm usually quiet about who I admire and out myself. Is this normal?
Please excuse me, I am socially anxious. I am moving this from a different blog. I used to have 2 but 2 blogs is way too many.
Is it normal to write a cryptic letter to a celebrity?
I don't know how to go about things. I am not good a verbally expressing myself sometimes. I really don't know how to start this letter/blog. It was easier for me to write this letter on my blog.
This is me saying in a subliminal way how Undertale gave me the things I rarely/never had. I felt as though my 9th-10th grade year of high school was rough and my 6th-grade year of Jr. High was rough.
I've struggled to make friends due to my autism/ADHD when I was in jr. high/high school. ( Sorry don't mean to get too personal here. I know I am a weirdo stranger on the internet).
The point is I struggled to make friends because I am different. I was hated because I am different by kids I never have seen or spoke to. I was always called names like stupid, retarded because I couldn't understand the other kids' ways of explaining things. I even struggled to keep friends on my Facebook due to this. I honestly hate being different.
I got deeply depressed when yet another person left me presumably due to my mental health and isolating myself from people.
I decided to play Undertale on my YouTube channel to kick off my gaming channel I am open to playing different games on my channel.
Undertale cured my depression of people leaving me for a mental illness I never wanted. *cough.*
I had come out about this(Undertale helping my select depression) before on an Undertale Reddit and the people there were mature. I came out again in an Undertale group on Facebook and was attacked by someone on the thread. I ended up blocking them because they think they can treat people how they want. Paraphrasing what they said.
Now, here's the thing. While when I was in school I rarely had people who accepted me for who I am. Undertale gave me the acceptance I rarely had. An artist makes art of their own interpretation, people who make AUs tell their own story. People come up with their own theories about things in Undertale. People to get express their creativity with art, music covers, theories, Aus.
When Sans tells me in the game someone cares about me, It reminded me of when I was in the 9th grade and though so hard about ending it all, due to the constant bullying I faced. How my friends did everything they can to make sure I was alright.
When Undyne tells Alphys that she doesn't have to lie about what she liked, that Undyne didn't really care about what Alphys liked.
Undnye hates you at first. In A funny away Papyrus gets her to give you a chance. And she ends up liking you. Even though I was rarely given a chance at school. I was glad to be given one in such a wonderful game. See Undertale tells you don't judge someone actually gives them a shot first.
When I shared a post to my Facebook that concerned some friends I met on a Sans page I run, (they thought I'd have an eating disorder, I had one when I was in the 11th grade) someone felt worried and gathered everyone in a chat saying someone here is down about themselves and needed the other peeps. When Sponge Bob gets his driver's license is the day I'd ever have that happen with people I know personally since being out of school.
No other game cured my select depression-like Undertale did. I have also had some depressive episodes and the wonderful people I met on the Sans page came in and left some encouraging words. My so-called 'personal' friends just scroll past my posts.
In Undertale no one is judged for being different. If the kids at my school took a page from Undertale's book my life wouldn't as been as hellish. Even though UT didn't come out until 2015 and I graduated in 2014.
Well, better close this before it gets any more awkward.
Just got fired from your 12, 20th etc job? Or are you just out of your luck and can't find any jobs that fit your needs. I will be explaining some jobs I feel are right for adults with autism that you can probably do remotely. This is my opinion but everyone is different and will have different skills. I did research for this blog post. I always to research before covering certain topics.
Sometimes 'real world' jobs are not for us. They are built the around neurotypical force. Remember that NTs don't have the issues that we have. We are sometimes forced to accommodate the Nts and that is not right. This article talks about the jobs that I feel is right for us. It will probably be won't be a walk in the park to get. It's better than being fired from several jobs due to your differences. Freelance Work
I am actually trying to land some freelance work myself. I feel freelance work is great for some of us because you can do it your way and the clients will come if …
I am a content creator. You're going to get feedback from people on how they feel you can do a certain thing better. I am tired of arguing. I am tired of taking their feedback the wrong and they think I can't take criticism. It's common for people on the autism spectrum do not handle certain types of criticism. It could be a low self-esteem thing as well. With us, we need a different approach to getting feedback. Another thing I have noticed is if I am not understanding what the person wants me to do because there are no visuals I can refer to, they will think I don't want their feedback if I try to explain why it will not work for me. This person told me they didn't like it when I read what the game is saying when I play games like Undertale, I will attach a link to one of my lets plays so you know what I am talking about. where you can make your own voice for the character. I explain I read what the screen is saying because if I don't, the viewers will get bo…
I made a blog article on jobs that would work for adults with autism. However, I think we should cover the jobs that you should avoid if you are on the autism spectrum. This is just my 2 cents. Everyone is different.
It's rough for people with autism to find steady employment. It's important that you avoid these jobs. Most people with autism have poor short term memory. I am one of these people. I have issues with high demand jobs that call for you to remember a lot of things. I don't know about you, I cannot handle several tasks at the same time. I am a one at a time person. Do this then move on to the next task when I am done.
People on the autism spectrum should avoid retail/fast-food jobs. In fast-food, chances are you will be given several tasks at once. That would be too demanding on me because I need time to process, adjust, etc. Same with retail like grocery stores. You may be given several tasks to do at one time. You w…
