-I’m 19 from IL

I just do a dish washing job. The people are great and so helpful and nice.

in my opinion my biggest accomplishment thus far is 
-Graduating high school

-I would love for a lot of different things to happen in the world . Trump impeached, anti-LGBTQ and anti-Autism organazation to not exist, stuff like that.

-I would love for NT's to know everyone’s different and that if an Aspie night stim in an “abnormal” way and that’s ok. It’s how they cope and if you have a problem with it, just keep it to yourself.

resources that I have received help like IEP’s and speech therapy and both have helped. I also am receiving help from HSS that has actually landed me a job which I am very helpful with.

I want fellow autistic to know:
So what if you have a stim that people think is weird? Embrace it! Even if you think you night be odd, it’s ok cuz everyone is odd. Autism is not a bad thing. It helped me get to where I am now and meet people I never could have met! Autism night not be a gift or a curse. It’s just who we are.

when i received my diagonsis i felt
It was like a 10 ton weight lifted off me! It was so eye opening and made so much sense!! Today
I accept my autism and I’m relieved.

not being diagnosed til I was older was very difficult. -yes! People would bully me(not saying autism was the cause), I could never get social cues and I was over sensitive and stuff like that.

-I got bullied for a long time. I had to switch schools it was so bad. I also have lost friends cuz of my autism. I’m a better person than I ever was. Being autistic is about more than stimming and brain differences. It's about acceptance of yourself and seeing the world through your own unique eyes.

  1. Where are you in Illinois? My son is 24 and was diagnosed at age 18. We live in Montgomery, IL about 50 miles south-west of Chicago. He has lost quite a few friends since graduating from high school also. If you live near us, maybe you guys could hang out.
