First, let me introduce myself. My name is Rob. I am a 27 year old Michigan male. I am not your average guy, as i am living with a dual diagnosis of ADHD and PDD-NOS. Life has not been easy. But, i manage :). I have made TREMENDOUS strides toward independence in the last few years. For example, i have my driver's liscence. And, believe it or not, i am 1 and a half weeks away from graduating from COLLEGE. Yes, that's right..when all is said and done, i will have a Bachelor's degree and an Associate's degree.. The Bachelor's being Sociology with a social services concentration, and an Associate's in Social Work.
That in itself is a tremendous accomplishment. But, it gets better. During my college career, in the summer of 2007, i got the opportunity to study abroad. In Shanghai, China, of all places. Yes, that's China, as in the other side of the world, as in the most populous nation in the world. I studied at Shanghi University for 4 weeks, taking courses in chinese religion, language, art, architecture, and literature. There was some languge instruction..but it wasnt lot of it..my formal introduction to the Chinese language itself came a year later, in the fall of 2008.
That brings me to my blog...i would be honored if you would list it along with the other blog links on your site, as you have done for Scott Lynn's comic. the address is http://ppd-nossocmajor.blogspot.com and the tite is "Soc Major with PDD-NOS."
If you did this favor for me, it would help increase traffic to my fairly new blog..and it could help others more by leading by example.. that it IS possible to live a somewhat normal life with autism specturum disorder
