Guest blogging for Autism Women’s Network

My guest-blogging post for the Autism Women’s Network is about the benefit of my involvement in a medieval reenactment group, the Society for Creative Anachronism: that medieval reenactment brought me friends and professional skills.

As I explain in the essay, for most of my life, I felt alone and out-of-place, like an alien from another planet. I was fortunate in young adulthood to discover the SCA, a place where I could pursue the special interests that led me to be able to form friendships.

The Autism Women’s Network is featuring posts by females on the autism spectrum as well as parents and caregivers, in order to give the public a better idea of what female autism is in the words of people who actually live it every day.
