I want to start my feature this week by stating that Friday, June 18, 2021 is Autistic Pride Day and I cannot go without mentioning that because I normally don’t blog on Fridays. As the world is on the heels of Autistic Pride Day, it has made me think about what I truly need to do in order to become aware of how I can better manage the effects caused by autism, anxiety and bipolar.
Today is Autistic Pride Day! Autistic Pride Day, originally an Aspies for Freedom initiative, is a pride celebration for autistic people held on June 18 each year. Autistic pride recognises the importance of pride for autistic people and its role in bringing about positive changes in the broader society.
