“Daisy Chain has been one of the best things to happen to me since my autism diagnosis.
“I was diagnosed nearly 10 years ago and have since gone through my life fighting my diagnosis thinking (hoping) it was wrong. I struggled so much and spent every minute of the day masking.
“I did not want to attend Daisy Chain because I did not want to accept my diagnosis and feel disabled; however, after my first visit I realised that Daisy Chain is a safe place where you can be yourself, you can take your mask down, and relax.
“Daisy Chain has since given me the ability to begin accepting my autism diagnosis, whilst also giving me the tools to cope much better in daily life. I am learning to understand myself and accept myself. Although it is a slow process, I know one day I will be proud to be autistic, and Daisy Chain has been the catalyst for this change.”
“I feel more like me now. I lost it for a while, and I was scared to do things, but I rarely feel like that now.”
“I just love this place; it’s made everything good again.”
“I feel calm, and I feel understood and not judged too.”
“Made me happier”.
“I have tried some of the anxiety strategies, such as grounding and mindfulness and this has helped me manage anxiety in college.”
“I feel like the piece of the jigsaw that was missing has been found, making me whole again. I am extremely grateful for the help the wellbeing service has given me and the tools I have learnt to help me live a happy and fulfilling life.”
