A Note from Autism

I want you to see what I see and hear what I hear. I want you to feel the texture of the air on your face the way I do. I want you to know that sometimes you think I’m not responding because I am checking in with all of the data-bases in my head to decide how to best share with you.


Sometimes I need alone time for that. Sometimes I need to dance my body, shake my hands, spin, hum, chew on something or even make noises that are weird to you. I cannot help that I am so full of information to share, nor can I help that you don’t already have a means for understanding my ways.


But, I’ll tell you what, if you look and listen you will see what I mean. If you try, you can clearly see that I am always responding to you. Always. That I am always trying to communicate with you. I don’t care if you don’t like me or think I’m weird. That is not my concern. But, I did come here with a message and if you don’t get it, none of us will feel accomplished.


It doesn’t matter how I got this way. Maybe I came here this way. Maybe I came to open you up to something more magical than you have ever imagined. Maybe I came to show you how to heal yourself and your planet. Our planet. Maybe I come from a place I remember dearly and wish to retain many of my own customs. I certainly did not come here to conform. But, that doesn’t mean I don’t have things to learn. Show me how I can feel better in my body. Show me how I can embrace my path even deeper. Show me how I can have more fun and feel more successful.



And, Mom and Dad,


I want to feel good.  I really do. I might fight things I don’t understand because I’ve had to create boundaries for my own safety. Sometimes my body, mind and spirit are not in alignment. It’s difficult to explain. But please please don’t give up on me. Soon,  you will be able to understand what I’m fighting over fear and what my body is actually rejecting. I chose you because I trust that you will find the right help just for me. Maybe it’s new foods. Maybe it’s a different way of thinking. But, I know we will find it. I know you can help me feel better. And, you already have.


Every time I look into your eyes, I see your heart. And, I remember why I chose you. One day, I’ll show you how to do that too.


Thank You!
