Autism is a lot more recognized now, but this is what it really feels like.

    What if you felt like…

    Everybody was against you, when they weren't?
    Nobody wanted to be your friend?
    That you were useless?
    You couldn't speak to anyone?
    Like you couldn't trust people?

    This is what it feels like to have autism.

    What if you…

    Couldn't interpret people's emotions?
    Cried for no known reason?
    Couldn't feel empathy for anyone?
    Couldn't control yourself?
    Had pretend friends or a pretend life?
    Felt like curling into a ball in the corner?

    But remember…

    You know all the weird and wonderful facts but don't know much about 'important' facts, like fractions. You have many hidden talents that you haven't found yet, that can take you places. You will find friends, and I know making friends isn't simple. People may upset you, but they don't understand you. But I fully understand you. You are one in a million: D

I'm on the autism spectrum, the only thing wrong is that I don't feel any empathy. Some autistic people (like me) feel empathy very strongly, more so than neurotypical people. But the rest totally applies to me

I had a friend that was autistic very autistic she would say random things like bubble guppies peekachu when she meant to say real words only I knew how to communicate with her and only knew what she meant to say I would get in trouble for "bullying" her when really all I was doing was talking to her 💔😣

I am somewhere on the autism spectrum, have the high-functioning type. This is so sad and I totally agree. This is so not recognised enough, especially in girls.

Soooo powerful and also heartbreaking that you can’t trust anyone ...I know a boy who has autism. Maybe I can understand him a little better because of this
