Living with with Autism:
My name is Matthew Mcenery and I am thirty years of age. I was diagnosed at age 10 with autism and I have also asthma and a lazy eye. I got surgery when I was 13 for the lazy eye. In my twenties, I developed alcoholism and managed to be freed from it since 2008, [taking it] one day at a time. I now have a trade certificate in horticulture, parks and gardens and work part-time pushing trollies. I am looking at full time work and have got alot of support. God has been good to me and I do martial arts and boxing and gym work for exercise. I believe that my heavenly father and my earthly father have always been there for me and without the both of them I would not be here today.
