What’s it like to be Autistic?
When people ask me that, it is just so hard to answer with something because what is it like to be not Autistic? I don’t know, so I don’t know any different than being Autistic, but what I can say is this…

I was born Autistic, I shall live Autistic and I shall die Autistic, it’s what God gifted to me.
Autism is a gift, a beautiful gift from God which has opened up the door to an extraordinary imagination.
Nearly every Autistic person, all that I know have bizarre imaginations.
I am extremely creative,
I have a superior understanding more so in technology,
I am a natural writer, but I can’t cope with hand writing as it tires me so much,
I am extraordinary at drawing sketches (you can see a gallery of them here),
I am really good with maths, I love algebra the most,
I love taking photos and videos and editing them,
I know I will and can and am changing the world for the better,
and I believe that all of my specialities are because of one thing,
I am Autistic, not Aspergers, I were diagnosed with severe Autism, and when I got diagnosed with severe Autism at age 13, although I knew what it was, it didn’t concern me, because I knew it was nothing but a gift, a big gift.

It explains why had such a hard time growing up, but thanks to my mom keeping me in mainstream schools throughout my school life, I have copied the mainstream child, not other special needs people who range from just having learning disabilities to mental and physical disabilities, which is the problem with special needs schools.
There just isn’t the mainstream kids to learn from such as talking which is one the things that being mixed with mainstream got me to learn, to be able to talk.

When I was a baby, I think it was a physiologist that said it to me. I’m not sure if that is the type of “professional” she was but the reason I have put “professional” in quote marks is because what she said was that I’d never walk, I’d never talk, I’d be permanently in a wheelchair until I die at 10. Complete bull. It’s never worried me that what was so-called meant to happen because I was walking and talking, so I knew I wasn’t gonna die at 10.

I have always had a mad obsession with trains and cars, even around 14, you’d still often find me in my room after school with my toy trains and/or cars out.
If this house was big enough that I could have a place for all my cars and Hornby trains then I’d still play with them now and I’m not afraid to show it because if you think that I am a baby, thank you very much, that’s very kind of you, I’m glad you think so.
I shall change this world if I’m a baby or not because it’s my life so I will do what I want how I want, and at least I am showing my true self.

You can quote me, disagree with me, glorify, or vilify as much as you wish but what you can’t do is judge me, or ignore me because like Steve Jobs says, whilst you may see me and all the other world changers as the crazy ones, he sees genius because those that are crazy enough to think they can change the world are the ones who do!!
Who here is crazy enough to think they can change the world?
I am for one, so go on, go and do what ever you please to try and tear me down, I will be rising from the ground like a skyscraper for I am a crazy one, a lovatic, a world changer, and I know it. I am autistic, and I am not just speaking for myself, I am speaking for basically all people with autism, all people with any condition, we all are the same specie, yet we are different, unique, have our own specialities, and for me, autism is one of them.

If you look at people with any type of disability and feel sorry for them, let me get this straight, DON’T feel sorry for them, as what ever the disability, they still find a way to cope.

The ones I feel sorry for are the ones who are being held back in these special needs schools, I’m not saying about every school, because some are better than others, but in mine, my moms and sisters experience, they are holding the special needs back, not meaning the teachers are awful, not meaning the school is awful, I mean the fact that they stupidly have to follow the curriculum, which is simply stupid as before you try teaching them maths, and any lesson, teach them how to talk, how to walk, how to look after themselves, parents can’t do it on their own.

But still, other than that, that in our experience they are holding the special needs back, you can’t feel sorry for them, because I am sure you have seen for an example, someone with very limited movement who is a maths magician, just because they have a disability, it doesn’t stop them from changing the world, and if they were born with that disability/condition, they don’t know how it is without it so they just put up with it, deal with it, and if any of you who have a disability and/or condition are feeling sorry for yourselves, STOP! You can’t live life feeling sorry for yourself! So live life to the fullest how you can, there is always a way no matter hat the disability.

Look at Steven Hawkins for goodness sake!!!
He is one of the legends up there with Albert Einstein and Isaac Newton who both are believed to have Autism.
Bill Gates is believed to have Autism.
Lots of legends have Autism.
All Autism is is a rewiring of the brain, which effects in some parts of the brain being impaired, meaning either not operational at all or at least limited from the average person but then it means other parts of the brain are enhanced a lot beyond what the average person has.

So next time you see someone with Autism or any kind of condition, don’t feel sorry for them, just treat them as you would to anyone, like a human being because that’s what they are, they are human, if not super human.

Not all turn of for the better though as Hitler is believed to be Autistic, but lets just screw him, let him rot in torture already. >_<

There is so much about having autism that you just can’t explain really, it will go on forever, but I just want to spread that there is nothing wrong with autism and you should not feel sorry about that someone has it, because if they are given the chance, like any of us, if we are given the chance, we can accomplish anything.

There is no cure for autism, so don’t think that, there shouldn’t ever be a cure for autism even if there could be one, because autism is what makes the person who they are, so don’t feel sorry for them and make sure they know that they are gifted because they are!!
