When I was a child, I used to think I was a robot, like Data, trying out his latest Emotion chip, then I discovered I was actually an alien... clearly on the wrong planet! Sorely misunderstood and searching for my place...
Do you think disability or superpowers when you think of autism? Hopefully the latter! Of course, everyone has superpowers - and weaknesses - and this is what everyone should be AWARE of. I'm just not normal - But neither are you!
Yeah, so I've got a genius IQ and maybe you don't. Believe me, there are things you can do that probably astound me (like, how do you say the right thing at the right time so well – an ability that requires something other than a high IQ).
I've finally broken free from the preconceived notions of others as to what I'm really all about, and now I have decades of bottled up creative powers to release! I've only just begun and its going to be great!
Now. Do your part and spread the word about Autism Awareness! One of my beautiful pendants on a necklace is a nice place to start!
