I’m not one to offend, but in my experience I’ve found that most of the people I’ve met with learning disabilities or are on the autistic spectrum don’t seem to be overly concerned with their health and well-being.

 

I found a website called One You which includes a helpful quiz which points out how you’re doing health-wise and what you can work on. You may want to get someone to help you complete this and remember to be honest. I got 6 out of 10 so I’ve got some work to do!

 

It has in-depth guides on how to look after your physical health including diet, smoking and sexual health.

 

It also has guides on looking after your mental well-being including how to manage anxieties, stress and low moods.

 

There’s so much more to this website and I can’t recommend it enough.

 

Living in this world and struggling with your sexuality can seem like a challenge to say the least. I’m sure it’s one we can all face but to do that it’s important to look after your mind, body and soul.
