Hello, I found the image a very interesting article and some of you might as well.
(I put a link to the image on google drive as not sure how to embed / attach an image in the forum - I'm sure there are instructions or I don't have this ability, just hoping the link works etc...)
As I’m new to the forum, I will give a little background info first.
1. My son is diagnosed AS.
2. I am self diagnosed AS - years ago my mum (and girlfriend) got me to go to a consultant as a young adult, he said it was up to me if I wanted the diagnoses because as far as he was concerned I had a girlfriend and was at university so what would be the point of having a diagnoses... in hindsight I probably should have done but it didn’t seem relevant, just knowing myself is good enough.
3. My dad has AS - he doesn’t know but it’s so obvious it’s funny and I won’t be telling him (my mum is dead so she won’t tell him either).
4. My Nan had AS - she died several years ago, also no one knew she had AS, they just thought she was a grumpy old woman who didn’t socialise with other residents etc. in her care home.
Getting onto the reason for the post…
After my Nan died, she had a book and in it I found a newspaper cutting about her Dad. He was someone that we never talked about (we didn’t really ever do much talking). Anyhow what I did know was that he was runover by a train in Porstmouth docks but no other details.
I read the newspaper cutting and it was really quite amazing, I also showed it to my wife (some person as the girlfriend above in number 2) and she also found it quite amazing. I’m not going to explain why as you can read it for yourself. I’ve been meaning to put a photo of the article on a forum like this for several years because for people who have or understand AS, reading the article with that understanding and family background it’s really quite amazing and so I don’t really need to guess where my Nan got her AS…
