Knowing about autism, makes me realize how not easy it will be to have a family member with this characteristic. Just imagine if they were your child, your brother or your sister. They live different. They notice things different. So we might feel that we can't connect with their world. Yet..One child with autism touches the lives of countless others. They can brings out the best in many of the people they meets throughout their life. They can be a source of inspiration for those around them as they leads a happy, healthy life in the process ( I quote this from autism.lovetoknow.com). Even when scientific says that it has no cure..successful autism people prove 'em wrong. They actually can be a professor, author, artist, musician, a basketball player, even as an advocate.
In my life, i feel not much different with autism people.. i have my own world that other might not understand. I keep it down bellow the smile and sympathetic laugh. I cry when others a sleep at night. I put my self in the closet when i feel like I'm unhappy. Somehow, it's only me and my own "planet". Some of my friend even find me so annoying that i couldn't stand still and always wandering to ask things.. (Hahaha.. but they are such a great friend to allow me to do that sometimes).
One think I'm sure that autistic are not much different than myself is the fact that they need others the most. Even if they have problem to communicate and developing the social life, they actually need others presence more than anything else in the world. Do you?? ^^
And as a closing statement.. i want to say that none of us is a Superman.. so why bother doing things alone ??
