It’s World Autism Acceptance Week. I am 29 and was only diagnosed the past few years. My life would have been better if I had of known earlier. I didn’t know how to explain to people why I had to leave their party, why I was breaking down on school camp, and why I avoided assembly which I found too loud. I remember the day a friend made me cry when she accused me of “walking out” of her party and being rude. I also remember the day she said I looked like I was “perving” on her boobs as I couldn’t make eye contact. I made this video about my experience and would like to share it for Autism Acceptance week.
