And Stimming With Rainbows of Every Design

Still Alive (but no promises)

Because when I make promises of future activity here, none seems to follow. There might be some, there might not.

Anyway, I'm still alive. A lot has happened since I last posted, most of it good, some of it rather less so. I moved to Silicon Valley in summer of '09 and have been attending community college there. I submitted my transfer application to UC San Diego's Cognitive Science program last month, so if nothing goes wrong, I should be there come next fall.

Meanwhile, my body decided this spring that I should join the subset (10-20%?) of people with cystic fibrosis who develop diabetes. I didn't find out until July, didn't get any actual practical advice until November, and didn't start actually taking insulin until yesterday. So now I'm preparing to go to a Christmas concert while my body keeps trying to head towards hypoglycemia.

And I had a two-month relationship with another autistic person which I ended (in part) for reasons that the people who go on about Cassandra Syndrome would likely consider impossible. Or possibly they would just claim that I was "too severe" and that he was "not really autistic."
