People might think autism leans toward meaning that we lack intelligence. I'm actually probably smarter than most pretty girls my age. Learning makes me happy. Learning gave liked purpose to my previously pointless life. Now pretty much all my perfect scores on tests is making my teachers and classmates see my potential.
Autistics might behave strangely sometimes. My biggest thing people might notice is how my really touchy temper can erupt into what people would see as uncontrollable screaming. Presuming my lack of self control longs to hear people make negative comments would mean I'm doing it on purpose. When I'm getting upset about something I can't control how I'm reacting. It's like this monster inside of me uses my body for its pleasure. I'm helpless. Learning your triggers is important. I have some things that can set me off. One person really lately helps me. Patience can overcome. I'm really grateful that my mom is my biggest supporter. Mom has patience galore. Mr. B at school is also a meaningful help to me. We autistics prefer people who are calming.
People treat me like part stupid, part monster. Using my iPad to communicate has helped a lot of people to see me as someone worth listening to. There are still people in my life that doubt that I'm really typing my thoughts and not being helped to say these words. You likely will be sorry someday when I'm a famous autistic advocate who types on my own. Reading my blog means nothing if you don't believe I wrote it. My mom got the news to do a story on me. It will help convince many, because they filmed my ability to type.
