Christ. That's awful.

I don't have a disease. I'm neurodiverse. I'm not a savant, I don't have an eidetic memory, or calendar skills, or the ability to recite pi to eleventy hundred places. I'm just a bit different.

I'm not any more worthy or less worthy than anyone out there. Neurotypical, savant, Kanner or Asperger or PDD.

I'm autistic, and that's not wrong, or removable, it just is.

Seriously. It's amazing how useful just a little bit of acceptance can be! Why can't there be PSAs to tell parents "hey, this isn't the end of the world," rather than all this doomy gloomy stuff?

I don't think I've seen something so horrible and scaremongering without actual information since the Grim Reaper ads of my childhood.
