I prefer identity-first language, or autistic person rather than person with autism. Autism isn't like depression or anxiety; it's not something I HAVE or a disease or mental illness. It's the way my brain is wired, which is a big part of who I am as a person. One wouldn't call a gay person a "...

YES this happens to me all the time, with my parents and siblings. It makes me feel like absolute garbage and a burden. I hate when they say that, and I've tried explaining to them, but it didn't work. Sometimes my parents and brother get mad at me for having meltdowns. I've told them I can't contro...
