Peta Lyre’s Rating Normal: first review!!

This could have been a terrible moment… but it wasn’t! It was the best! @cakeandmadness is an #ownvoices reader who share’s Peta’s diagnoses/neurodivergence. I’m so relieved she rated Peta Lyre FIVE STARS!!!

Autism and the cost of masking

This article “We are not OK”, from The Autistic Advocate, is not an easy read. I wouldn’t recommend it if you are feeling down. BUT it’s important to recognise the side effects of masking (pretending to be neurotypical). For this reason, I’d say the article is of more benefit to …
