On Sunday morning I was on the news for the second time promoting RPM. I'm grateful that I have been given opportunities like this to show the world what RPM has helped me do, but I'm always a little nervous about backlash from skeptics. The first thing I want to say to people who think RPM is fake is, "don't you have better things to do than call autistic people liars?" It saddens me how often have to tell people that RPM does not work for everyone, just to get them off our backs. Feels like it negates the fact that it does work for some. People who claim to know about autism should understand that not everything will work for everyone, but anything is worth a try. And for those who do not think RPM is evidence based, I would think people like me are all the evidence you need. I can participate in my own life in ways I couldn't before I used RPM. It's not always easy or perfect, but it's been a game changer and really a life saver for me. I recently heard the phrase, "Let your haters be your motivators," and I think that applies here. In the end, people can say what they want, but I'm going to keep working hard and proving them wrong.
