On Discovering I'm Autistic, Maybe
Paid substack subscriptions are now (theoretically) available.
Hello loyal readers! I have finally gotten around to figuring out how to make paid subscriptions available…I think? If the good lord is willing and the bytes don’t rise?
Anyway, I’m trying to check it out. In theory! If I understand this right, subscribers for $5 a month or $50 a year can now comment and will be able to see paywalled content.
Of course, there is not a lot of paywalled content on here as of yet! I’m just finding my sea-legs. But! No time to try like the present. So below the paid content line, there, I’ve included an essay on (maybe) figuring out your neurodivergent in your 50s. I’ve included the first couple paragraphs as what we in the industry call a “tease.” Hopefully some of you will want to read the rest, the paid , subscription thing will work, and this battle-station will be fully operational!
