About Me Stories

Get to Know J.R.

He’s actually a pretty righteous dude…

Welcome to my Medium page! My name is J.R. Reed and I founded Not Weird Just Autistic back in 2012 as a way to deal with my recent autism diagnosis, to help people on the spectrum realize they’re not alone, and to teach neurotypicals that we aren’t failed people. We’re perfect autistic beings.

A publication dedicated to bringing out the stories behind the writers themselves. A place of autobiographies. Types of personal stories include introductions, memoirs, self-reflections, and self-love.
