The Adventures of Autistic BigBro: Prelude

bigbro_adventures

Note: I thought about creating this series for the reader to fully grasp the very essence of this blog. I intend it to be a bi-monthly chronicle of my adventures in the world of autism advocacy. Join me as I tell my life stories as I play the role of an autistic big brother to my fellow autistic brothers and sisters, and the role I play in their lives and those of their families, as well as in my real-life family’s life and the lives of the people around me.

Since the start of my realization of my purpose in life over a year ago, the influx of adventures of my advocacy has been continuous and consistent. During this journey, I have met different people in the community — people like myself, who are within the autism spectrum. There, I have seen a huge diversity of individual personalities, behaviors, perceptions, and a lot more. Along with that, I’ve also been with families from most walks of life, from high society to the grassroots, where I joined them as they walk with their children, brothers, sisters, relatives, and friends on the autism spectrum.

While at it, I always make it a point to be on a journey in my own right — as a son, a brother, a cousin, and a friend who is autistic and, like my counterparts, experience first-hand how it is to know that I am on the spectrum and the travels and travails that accompany such a condition. The joys, the sorrows, the frustrations, and a lot of emotions and feelings — those I continually experience and endure, as me.

Join me as I chronicle my adventures of my journeys as a self-advocate, an advocate for my fellows, an average Joe, an awesome fellow, and everything in between.

To be honest, though, I couldn’t figure out where to start — after all, my life stories are a web of thoughts, experiences, and opinions toward life as an autistic big brother. But allow me to tell you about it, anyway.

Welcome to The Adventures of Autistic Big Bro.
