A letter

To the parents who don’t understand me during the holidays: I don’t blame you.  That’s what I want to say first.  I do not blame you for not understanding how I feel because I do not understand it half the time.  I do not blame you for saying I am rude, or for  getting angry […]

To the teens

To the teenager who was just diagnosed with high functioning autism, I would first like to say welcome to the club, with some of the greatest people you’ll probably ever know. Believe me, I know how you feel right now. You’re probably feeling really overwhelmed right now. Which is completely ok. I went home after […]

The debates

People

I have discovered a new thing that annoys me (Almost) more than sympathy or pity: when people say oh,at least it isn’t that bad…That frustrates me to no end because it minimizes the struggles of people by comparing them to the struggles of others.  You wouldn’t tell a person with cancer oh at least its only cancer […]
