I Don’t Mind Pity


autistsix

This is in response to some posts I’ve read from some really lovely mothers of autistic children.  I understand where they are coming from but I would like to present a friendly alternative argument.

I like being autistic, I could do without the accompanying depression/anxiety & physical illness, but I am still glad to be me.  And I am so impressed with your pride in your children.  It is so important that the message gets out to the general population that autism is not a horrific sentence that means your life is effectively over and your family’s ruined.  But and this is a big but, ignorance is fought by information not insistence on polite silence.
