Christmas diary: Day 5


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.
