Hello! My name is Benjamin, and welcome to my Online Central Hub

At a young age I was vigorously tested, and many of my doctors came to the same conclusion: I was a complex person. I was originally diagnosed with CAP (Central Auditory Processing Disorder), Autism, and Generalized Anxiety. However after some negative reactions to regular antidepressants, doctors believed there was another piece to the puzzle. That's when I was transferred to a Bipolar clinic, and diagnosed with Bipolar II in addition to my previous diagnosis.

 

So I was a complex young man. To some doctors that meant adjusting expectations, telling us I would never live a 'normal' life, go to a 'normal' school, or even make 'normal' friends. Despite that, through a supportive family, and great healthcare professionals; I am starting to live my best life! However, that doesn't mean 'normal' and I couldn't be happier about it.

 

I am now 24 years old, and living in Canada with my wonderful and loving wife. For too long I viewed my own Autism as a negative, something to be ashamed of and hide; however now I am a proud Autistic person, who has many qualities who add to my total self!

 

For now, I wish to pursue further opportunities in acting, public speaking, educational media (Blog and Video), and children's literature. Through these fields, I hope to open doors for myself and other amazing Autistic individuals, and inspire others like me to step out and be proud of their Autism! It is so important to not only re-educate those who've learned misinformation, but also educate people before they are given the wrong information.

I strive to ensure all my content is free and accessible to as many people as possible. However, if you are able & willing to provide financial support for my content head to my Ko-Fi!

My motto, love and respect others, and live everyday with empathy; and respect yourself and your own boundaries.
