A Quiet Week in the House to “I Wish I didn’t have Asperger’s” #AutismPositivity2012 Flash Blog

AutismPositivity2012 Flash Blog Event

Dear “I Wish I Didn’t Have Asperger’s”:

Your internet search tells me you feel isolated and burdened by your Aspereger’s diagnosis.

Today, the Asperger’s community of fellow adults and supportive family members responds to you.

We assemble to give you courage.

Your intensity, sensitivity and logical thinking are gifts.  The sprinkling of autism in humanity lights the way for our neurotypical siblings. Art, science, music, philosophy and literature owe a debt to the autist.

Events that slip through the minds of our neurotypical peers linger with us. These tremors of emotional disturbance push Aspergerians to relentlessly question and seek answers.

Suffering, injustice and misfortune prod us to change the world.

So, today we write for you. The internet is an ocean of Aspies with outstretched arm to buoy you. The waves whisper deeply familiar stories. Every line you read will be a tether, pulling you to a dock with a view.

From where I stand, overlooking the blogs, chats and groups, I see hope and companionship. I see a place for every Aspergerian to tell their story and find the comfort and support they need.

Google again, we’re waiting for you.

Best Wishes,

Lori D.
