(This bird looks like he DGAF! Seemed fitting lol.)

Act 1. I don’t know if being alive matters.

Act 2. I don’t know if this world matters.

Act 3. I don’t know if me being alive in this world matters.

Hi! I am an artist, author, and blogger who also happens to have Asperger’s Syndrome. I have won several awards and honors for my writings and artwork. I suffer from a few severe mental illness and chronic pain conditions (Depression, Anxiety, PTSD, Fibromyalgia, CFS/ME, Ehlers Danlos, Degenerative Disc Disease, etc.), which greatly affects my life and makes me want to advocate for others going through similar things. Other interests of mine include reading, writing, drawing, watching cartoons and movies, collecting toys, hanging out with my family, and annoying my 3 cats.

  1. I don’t know if you’re not knowing matters. 🙂

    I think this is more akin to skepticism than nihilism. A nihilist would assert, make a positive claim that, nothing matters.

    Cool post, though.

      1. I thought these things were self-evident actually, lol. Nothing objectively matters, but we understand that we have to create meaning for everything. It’s simultaneously meaningless and meaningful, and holding those two truths in mind is ok, in fact a necessary part of humility.
