About Me

I am a fortysomething wife, mother and owner of insane (and flatulent) dog.

I blog about autism, anxiety and life as a hormonally challenged idiot.

I was diagnosed autistic at the age of 46 after a lifetime of wondering why I don’t fit in and why my brain does it’s ‘funky thing’. Autism defines me.

My greatest achievement is birthing three boys: Eldest boy, Middle boy and The Boy, who is autistic. One’s an actor. One’s a photographer and one wants to be a professional Pokemon trainer when he grows up. Or is it a professional Minecraft blogger?

Last but not least is Miss Fartalot. Mongrel. Flatulent. Woof.

Why Inside The Rainbow?

Well, rainbows are often used to symbolise autism. One can see a rainbow (e.g parent of an autistic child) or one can can live inside the rainbow (autistic).

“Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They’re not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.”

  2. Hi Tracy – your blog about Lorna Byrne really made me laugh! I want to believe her (and my philosophy is you might as well believe what helps you along, and belief in a guardian angel certainly helps me) but something about her disturbs me, and it’s this. Of the cast of thousands in her books – all the people who she has encountered and often apparently helped – I cannot find one who has verified her story from their own side. Not one. I keep googling, ‘Lorna Byrne Verification’ or ‘Lorna Byrne Testimonials’ and I get the same links back to journalistic interviews or her website. Or to articles like yours, which at least made me laugh. Wouldn’t you think there would be at least one account along the lines of ‘I met Lorna and she told me something she couldn’t possibly have known’? Or ‘I met Lorna and what she told me helped me with my seemingly insurmountable problem – it’s mentioned in her book’? Am I missing something?

    • Hi Babs, the one thing I am sure of when it comes to Lorna is that she believes what she is saying. It’s a nice story in a world that can get very dark at times. I can understand why people want to believe her. The problem with verification is that a lot of paranormal experiences are personal and happen when a person is alone. Lorna’s debut was a stand out book but she’s milked it ever since, which takes away some of it’s uniqueness for me. That said, apparently she gives a lot of money to charity and isn’t exactly swanning about wearing dark sunglasses and demanding stuff. So there’s hope lol. I did happen to find some verification albeit anecdotal and it’s come from her daughter who is also her PA. That said, I’m presuming the person in question would verify it as they are named?
      I’m glad you like my post and thank you for commenting. 🙂
