I knew I had a bad leg and foot that was obvious because you could see a problem, but I didn’t know about my disability, I didn’t know about my learning difficulties. I also didn’t know about scoliosis, or autism.
And whilst some of us may feel as though life has let us down, it’s not good enough for us to ignore what others deal with. Trying to get into the mind of others is difficult, even more so when you deal with a disability.
Anything we deal with can be difficult. That is accepted. Dealing with a disability is even more difficult. Dealing with Autism is difficult again. But for anyone dealing with Autism, it is important others understand our awkwardness and accept that we will always have difficulties with emotional and social responsiveness.
Relationships start with our parents and siblings. Where it’s clear family lack the emotional resources, understanding and allegiance is important.
