For me, being autistic doesn’t mean I am disabled. My nervous system is just working differently – meandering all over the place and laser focused at the same time. I am processing information and sensual input in unique ways and so my perception of the world is not the same as yours. My thought processes have a tendency towards the bizarre and therefore my reactions, my use of words and my body language can be slightly unexpected and quirky. That´s how I see it. For me, autism is not a disease, because this is nothing to be cured. I don´t need to be fixed. But I would like to be supported and valued – just like I am.
