On the Saturday 5th of March 2016, Marked a milestone in my life journey and it was the biggest achievement since leaving school.
The event took place Liverpool John Lennon Airport at around 12:40 on Saturday 5th of March 2016.
I stepped inside the terminal building for the first time in my life.
Come and Board the Bowing 777 to Autism Life Airport.
I have Autism and other conditions relating to Autism, which makes big and noisy places scary and I freeze on the spot because I’m scared and I go into Tortoise mood.
So when I went on my day trip on the buses around Merseyside, en route I called at Liverpool John Lennon Airport for Liverpool One.
I never had it in my thought that was the day I would approach my fear of airports and step inside a terminal building.
On alighting the 89 bus from St Helens at the airport, I saw a friendly information guide making sure all passengers know where they were going. It was only when he told another passenger to wait inside the terminal building some big was just about to happen.
I approached the dominant airport terminal and then I stepped the arrivals door on a mission to find some food but could not find what I was looking for so I went to use the toilet instead.
Every minute I was inside the airport, I was getting my self-used to all the airport noise and bustle.
Then the realisation kicked in when I was back outside waiting for the 500 to Liverpool One.
I think this is the biggest achievement so far of life journey. I was calm as anything and that took me by surprise too.
I will now carry on taking baby steps with airport until the day when I need to take a flight to somewhere.
We have now arrived at Autism Life Airport.
