Autism Spectrum Disorder by 7w7w Autism Spectrum Disorder by 7w7w
Most people don't know what autism is, what it does, or where it originated. Well, I have the answers. Autism is either a learning or a psychological disability that causes the person to have difficulty communicating with others. Where does it come from? I don't have an exact answer. Maybe it is a DNA mutation. I believe I know how I got it. Mothers who have children in their early ages are more likely to have children with some sort of disability or disease. My mom had me when she was 18, so perhaps that is where I got my autism. Luckily, I got the least severe type of autism, Asperger's syndrome (Yes, it does sound like "ass burgers".). My best friend and my boyfriend have Asperger's, too. 
When I was in elementary school, I was the silent the extreme. It was to the point to where my classmates were asking me, "Are you OK?" 2011 was the worst year of my life. That whole year was just a living Hell. My depression was so bad, that I had thoughts of suicide and almost killed myself by stabbing myself in the heart with a chef's knife! But the fear of death and the concern for my friends and family prevented this. I owe my life to my friends and family (and you guys, of course!). Then, on my mom's 37th birthday, I got into the biggest argument with her husband (my sister's dad; I'll explain later). And my innocent boyfriend had to hear my rage and see me cry in shame, but he cheered me up with funny YouTube videos and discussing his dark moments. He even prayed for me. Now I owe my life to everyone that I care about, as they care for me.
I believe my biological uncle (Again, I'll explain in a journal soon.) has a more severe type of autism, but I don't know which one.
The most famous person with autism is Temple Grandin.

It has long been my contention that a diversity of cognitive models within the human population has contributed greatly to its intellectual advancement on a global-historical scale. The way the advent of the internet age (which has occurred within my lifetime) has democratised communication may accelerate this to the mutual benefit of all the cognitive communities. A small aspect of this potential is demonstrated by this fascinating short story here:…

I have DAMP. And I really don't care if they have autism, i'm treating them like every one else with no special treatment.

Well, I have Asperger's Syndrome, so I guess I'm not too badly off. Thanks for sharing this! There's not many people like you to inform people more on this kind of stuff...well done!
