Christmas diary: Day 5

29th

Just off phone with Mum. I’m engaged! She was almost as excited as me.
I’d made no contact with Rob what with birds arriving daily.
Today he came round himself. I felt a bit guilty.
But he presented me with a box tied up with a huge red bow. Then began a Russian dolls game! Inside there were layers of tissue paper and under each one was a gold coloured ring – each smaller than the previous.
Fifth and final ring was a huge solitaire! And he popped the question.
My dreams are coming true. I’m so happy.
Night-night diary

Diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder after fifty years in the mental health system I decided to share my experiences and consider the impact my health has had on my well-being. Being creative is the mainstay of my life and it's how I express my deepest emotions. Photography, writing, and design challenge me and help keep me rooted in the present.
