Reminder to all the disabled kids going back to school ~
Your best is always, always enough — even if what “your best” is changes daily due to energy/spoon loss, etc!
Your health is important, please take care of yourselves. ❤
- allistic parents who have autistic children: i'm not going to tell my child that they're autistic because maybe then they'll be able to function normally.
- those autistic children: i feel like a freak because i'm not like everyone else. i think there's something wrong with me but no one will tell me what.
So much technological, scientific, and mathematical genius in my family, and it all skipped autistic me. I’m extremely right-brained.
The joke is that family genes split from expected packages and told each other “Go on ahead! I’ll catch up!”
That happened in my family, too. My allistic paternal grandfather literally did rocket science at one point. I wish I could do math. Numbers are not my friends.
