The Worst Part of Autism

July 5, 2011

Is just like Sartre’s hell: other people.

Look, I don’t like being ostracized. I don’t like banging my head against the wall because all other attempts at expressing myself have failed and I feel like there’s nothing left. I don’t like how difficult basic socialization and function can be for me sometimes.

But none of these problems exist in a vacuum. None of them would be nearly as severe if neurotypicals worked even half as hard to understand me as I work to exist with them.
