Lately I wrote a short article on my blog about Autism and understanding them (I really don't need much understanding but many of them DO!)

I wrote this for my blog:

Autism is something people know very little about. Often we have a family member of know somebody who has a family member who has been effected by autism. It isn’t the easiest thing in the world to live with. It doesn’t have to be the hardest thing to live with either. Through understanding, friendship, love and a little bit of kindness you can make an autistic person’s life much easier to deal with. Don’t get me wrong things can still be tough but by trying to understand them you will be showing you care and I can’t think of a greater gift than that. One thing that bothers me about being autistic is that some people think I should keep it a secret. I hate keeping secrets I feel like they are dishonest, so I tell people. My main point is just try to understand us it won’t hurt. The kindness will be rewarded

Very well written. And so true! I feel that I can't hide my feelings from anyone, because it is dishonest to do so.

I agree. I feel like I'm being dishonest if people don't know if I have autism.
