Accepting Autism

It is autism acceptance month.  For who I ask?  Who needs the message more than us ourselves.  As a child, I thought my autism made me bad.  It is what I heard, what I experienced through others and even myself.  My body was derelict of duty, betraying me always.  How do you make peace with yourself?

People judge; it is the way of it.  But my harshest critic was me.  Life with autism is no picnic, but we need to be kind to ourselves.   Accepting autism means accepting ourselves. Acceptance starts with ourselves.


  1. Hi. I dont know if this will go anywhere. I don't know if you have any contact information. But im a caregiver for a 12 year old boy with autism. Ive been reading your blog and it sounds like you have a lot of experience with stims. I was wanting to see if I could maybe get some input from you?

  2. People should understand more about autism so they can help and understand children with special needs.
