One Small Step by [livejournal.com profile] sandymg  

I'd had thoughts and inklings and wonderings for years, but reading this fic made me realise that maybe there was actually something to it. A year later, I was diagnosed with Asperger's. Years and years of doctors and psychologists but it took sweet Jared for me to find out who I really am. If that isn't life changing, I don't what is : )  Thanks, Hun x

I *<3* this! Thank you for reminding me of this story! Will dld and enjoy it again. I don't know if I told you already but my three kids have Asperger's Syndrome. Makes me kinda love them even more! I'm not one with the diagnosis but I think I sorta understand it... maybe.

Love you AJ!

And people think fanfic is frivolous and a waste of time. I've learnt so much about myself and all sorts of other things from fanfic - nothing as profound as that but still. I think it's rather awesome. (((hugs you)))

*hugs you tight* It was just one of those serendipitous things, reading the right thing at the right time : )
I do think we're stronger together and storytelling is a great way at passing on information, or just about creating a community so people don't feel so alone. It is pretty awesome ♥ xxx

Wow, that's amazing that you finally got your diagnosis after years of docs and psychologists from reading this story. That really is life-changing!

*hugs*

There's something to be said for finding out who you are in the grand scheme of things, but it's the person you become to deal with just being that's important, I think. People say fanfic isn't worth the time or it's just whimsy, but it's taught me so much about myself and there's never a wasted moment when you've come out of a story with a better understanding of life in general, or just a huge grin :) xx
