Don’t punish us for being autistic
From the Blog
My brain filters not
"To be with autism sometimes causes me to strike out at a world that does not fit me. It is loud and confusing, and demands a good brain wired to calmly act and react. Mine is wired to hear and see too well. It filters not. It does not protect. Others cannot imagine how their world attacks me. I am alone with no path to peace.
Help me by not judging my strangeness. I love people, but must be alone much of the time."
