writer of rambles


Hi I’m Ally, a writer of ADHD-fuelled autistic rambles. I have just finished my master’s in psychology where I researched autism and friendship and I am planning my PhD for next year to focus on autistic experiences of grief.

I have recently launched Practical Neurodiversityand wanted a space of my own running in parallel where I could write and share my rambles whilst I am writing a book on autistic ways of being and communicating. So, here it is, I hope you enjoy it!

Nothingness & Forgiveness

From a concussion to start my year and the dizzying dreamlike states of nothingness I entered into to the same nothing-like states of memory I find in relation to a head injury from years ago, I discuss how I navigate this in terms of post-traumatic growth whilst also suggesting how we ought to consider this growth in the ways we learn to forgive the other too.

I also have some fiction on the go too! There is always fiction going somewhere.
