From yesterdays post I think most of us agree that we are all on the autistic spectrum somewhere. I wish everyone in my town was as understanding as you all!
So why do some people want to cure autism? Wouldn’t we then all be wiped out?!
And why is there so much abuse of autistic people?
Even my Ex husband wanted to put C out of his misery (That’s why he’s my ex). But it was he who was miserable and not C, C was just being himself!
C head bangs, but its not always because he is anxious or miserable, he does it just as hard when he’s happy. I think his pain threshold must be very different, but then there are lots of people like that!
C has been abused over the years, ranging from being insulted in the street, ignored, neglected, to physically attacked, indecently assaulted etc.
It breaks my heart as he is so gentle (except to himself). Obviously I do what ever is in my power to help him, but I am not always going to be around.
Hopefully my blog has given people a better understanding, but you don’t have to understand autism, just accept all people are different.
