I do not consider myself “autistic” I consider myself, someone that has asperger’s syndrome. I know that there is no cure for this disorder, but autism doesn’t have me … I control my own destiny, it is only an obstacle if I make it an obstacle.
I don’t have to validate my own experiences, I simply have to be the best person I can be and love who I can love and try to forgive my enemies and work to improve the quality of my life.
There is a darkness, it comes from being alienated from everyone else’s common experience … sometimes this darkness can lead you into dark times, I respect the power of darkness … although I am being of light, If I surrender to the darkness I am autistic, If I battle the darkness and try to become a better friend, brother, son, student and human being I am doing all anyone can do in this world, and that is what I intend to do.
It will not be easy, but I am free spirit.
