Let it Go!

“This is a cover of “Let it Go” from Frozen, but with changed lyrics to reflect how I feel about finally getting and coming to terms with an ASD – Autism Spectrum Disorder – diagnosis. It also goes out to everyone on the AS spectrum, especially the girls, and especially the girls that weren’t diagnosed until adulthood. This song reflects mostly how I felt growing up – being stared at when I had a bad meltdown, people not understanding me, etc – though most of it still applies to my life now. I hope it’s relatable to other Aspies/Auties! I’m not a professional singer or pianist, so please no hate! I’m well aware that I was often pitchy, haha. Also, I wrote, practiced, and filmed this song in only a couple hours, so be nice! =P

FYI: Stim = “…short for ‘self stimulation’. Almost everyone does it – tapping feet, cracking knuckles, twiddling thumbs – but in autistic people these behaviors are more pronounced and may seem downright strange. Autistic people often engage in stimming when they are stressed, to self regulate and sometimes to express emotion.” ~ Urban Dictionary

Also, apparently my camera decided that my TARDIS should be in focus rather than me. I can’t say I don’t agree. ;D”
