Aspergers is not my problem by journal-of-falcon Aspergers is not my problem by journal-of-falcon
You look down on me thinking I have no future.
You think holding my hand will help me later in life.
You treat me like an animal and don't think I understand.

You try to point out facial expressions I already understand.
You tell me how I should act, think and feel.
I do something wrong, you forgive me too much.

I try to get away from you; you just follow.
I don't trust people because of you.
You pay more attention because you think it's worse now.

You say Aspergers is a problem.
I agree...it makes you view me differently and I want you to stop.

I am a human, not aspergers.
Treat me like it.

"I don't trust people because of you."

I have aspergers and that line completely describes my 7th grade year. I was picked on left and right. Hell I was even afraid to go on the dance floor at my high school prom because I was afraid someone might make fun of me for some dance move I didn't know.

:nod: I second this. We aspies ought to speak up if we want to be heard. Oftentimes I place my voice of experience in academic essays. It is one great way to spread awareness, not only from the exterior, but also the interior.
