The Princess

To My Beloved Royalty...

Hey folks.... it's been a long time and I've promised to be back a while back. So here's the scoop: I had an anthology submission to do. I have to get a lot of work done for my professional portfolio.... filling out a storyboard and finishing some animations. A lot of work to do. THEN I need to get some crowdfunding for some films I need to make set up.

As for the current arc: The last year of the Obama presidency headed in a direction that had modified the direction the story was going to turn. The rise of #45 has jerked the storyline in a different direction, and I need to do some serious recalibration. This one will be easy to flub, and it was always going to be a huge step in a new direction. Honestly, I'm not sure how to navigate it. But, I will.

On a personal note: as you know, the last few years have been one of crumbling, radical acceptance, and rebuilding. The rebuilding is absolutely still underway, aided in part by a diagnosis that has surprised and unnerved me, but set me on my way:  At the age of 45, I was diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder. Prior to the DSM V, I'd have been diagnosed with Asperger's, but that's no longer a diagnosis, so it's ASD. When I was in 6th grade, I was diagnosed at school as someone with a learning style that schools were not designed for. In the mid 80's, someone like myself slipped through the diagnoses. But today, it's been identified, and it's required me to see myself differently. But it's also helped me accept some needs.

So that's it: This is where I am. I'm grateful that you're still interested in y humble efforts after all this time. Thank you.

I've kept your comic in my nightly routine, looking forward to the day you would resume. Glad to see you are back and glad to hear that you were able to make some discoveries that will help you in life (if I'm understanding right) going forward.

Nice to see you've been busy develping new skills... even if it's slowed your output on this strip.

Interesting that you've had a diagnosis of Apergers.... I was similarly diagnosed myself just a few years ago, so I've been there.

And you know.... the diagnosis helped. Now I look at the past, and that social 'jigsaw' of life that I was struggling to put together without a picture.... it all makes sense.

On the intellectual side, I'm pretty high up....
But on the social side, I'm a little disabled..... I jokingly call myself a "Social Retard"

One of the things I learned about myself, is that I have a gift for noticing the 'detail' that others don't.
And through that, my special fixed focused interests.....I excell at.
And I like that about me.

But the diagnoses has made allowed me to know where I need to work harder and create coping strategies to deal with the aspects where I'm not so skilled at.
Listen a little more, try and make eye contact when I didn't before, and watch for bodylanguage signs that people give out but often Aspies miss.

So yeah, it's gift and a curse...... but if there were a pill that if I took one a day would get rid of my Aspieness..... I wouldn't take it.

It's what makes me.... ME!! :^D

Glad to have you around again. We were all worried something happened to you in these rather scary times.


Also, my girlfriend is autistic and wasn't properly diagnosed until her late teenage years which lead to a lot of struggling with disability and not getting proper assistance and stuff.
