Then it was a formal diagnosis. This is a long and flawed process that needs to be updated. IMO. I am a The middleman-the old man. Not a five-year-old.”
Wentworth is 49 years old.
Miller wrote that he knew that “getting a diagnosis is a privilege that many people don’t like”, and that the diagnosis is “shocked” but “not unexpected.”
“I know very little about autism. (There is a lot to know.),” he wrote. “Now my work seems to be developing my understanding. Re-examining 5 years of life experience through a new lens.”
At the same time, he added, “I don’t want to risk becoming a loud, well-informed voice suddenly in the room. The #autistic community (I know this) has been discussed throughout history. Endorsements. I don’t want to cause Extra harm. Just raise my hand and say, “I am here. “Always (not aware of).”
Miller thanked the people in his life for “giving me extra grace + space over the years, consciously or unconsciously,” and allowed him to “travel the world in a way that makes sense to me, whether it makes sense to them or not.”
