Agreed. And thank you sl-0th. I’m not severely autistic, hell - most people in my life don’t actually know that I am because of how well I function….now. But I am and always have been and it’s made a huge impact on my life - and when I was younger it was so bad that I not only wanted to die, but tried, several times, to end my life between the ages of 4 and 14. People like the bastard above made my life godawful horrible and painful…even my own family could be lumped in with “him” because they just…couldn’t and didn’t want to take the time to understand things from MY perspective.
I still have a hard time with things and autism flavors every day of my life. Those that know me might wonder why I “poof” for long periods of time for seemingly no reason — it’s because I’m “full up”. I have to hide because there’s waaay too much coming at me all at once. It’s hard for me to have more than 2 or 3 IM windows. How do you pick who you talk to? Without making oneself feel like a shitheel for ignoring the other people that want to talk to you? OR that you want to talk to but just CAN’T?
I do have the ultimate blessing in life of having AMAZING friends that understand me, even without knowing I’m autistic to ANY degree…they love and understand and just…shower me with what I need - or pull back and let me alone when I need that too. I’d be dead if not for friends like the ones I’ve got. I love ya’ll more than words can express. IT’s unfair Joshua’s going through life without them…but I can hope that he’ll end up with friends as wonderful as mine are, someday.
And…I…don’t care if the kid is 10, I will be his friend. Hey Joshua, you’re not alone!
