To me, one of my greatest sorrows is that Autism is seen as a disorder, damage from vaccines or otherwise, or not even recognized as genetic. My mother was Autistic. I am Autistic. I was not made this way by chemicals and to see me that way means I am damaged.
It really bothers me because I am NOT damaged. We would not have computers if not for brain differences. We are different, not damaged or broken. We are sensitive because we are here to change the world. Communication is not always verbal.
