There is some consternation among some that anons remain anon.
Janika Banks has no birth record, at least that I know of.
I created a fictionalized avatar to express myself through. Anyone reading through more recent blogs can affirm I am diagnosed dissociated and deal daily with a rollercoaster mood disorder on top of being on autism spectrum.
Why am I saying this? Because I'm high risk. I'm a mess. High IQ, low EQ, successful in just about everything I have attempted, even with a list of diagnoses with all their spinoffs and complications.
I am not a stupid person. Naive (yes), gullible (regrettably), easy to lead on (literally in my diagnosis), and sometimes dumb as a rock (family nods), but stupid I am not.
Even stepping into a spotlight I have been anon for all the years I've been online. I share what I feel like sharing, what I choose to share, and it looks real enough (based on a true story, as it were), but there was no way I could write an autobiography without bringing slings and arrows on my head. So, I fictionalized it.
In case there is any question about this very scattered free book I've published all over the internet.
