I don’t understand why this haven’t been made before. I can’t stand when I see the words “suffers from autism”. I might don’t have many difficulties as an aspergers compared to others, but it’s my environment that makes life difficult, not my autism. If you suffer from migraine, then yes, you can go to somewhere silent and lay down, but it won’t take it away. No matter if everyone leaves and you get to sit down with something you’re interested in, or they stop touching you, or whatever that could bug you, it won’t just go away. Not only by that. I only have problems because the busses are crowded and people say things that makes me extremely uncomfortable or crack their knuckles or what have you. That’s the difference. Why does I have to be cured and change and behave as you want? Why don’t you behave as I want?
Sure, there are things I have to fight with, as walking on the streets alone. I need help with that. But I can learn it. Just like you can learn how to solve advanced math problems or remember long, complicated words. That comes naturally to me. I don’t suffer from autism. I have autism. There’s a LOT of things I struggle with, but then I got a great visual memory, patience, a high IQ, a sense of how other feels that is so strong that I jokingly refers to it as my sixth sense, and I get extremely happy everytime I see bird, be it a gull, pigeon, crow or hawk. It will keep me smiling for minutes.
My autism does just as much good than bad. I don’t suffer from it.
(I’m very, very sorry if somebody that reads this think that their autism is really something they suffer from. I just don’t like when we got put under one hat, like “of course they all hate everything about themself, how could it be different?”.)
