Seriously. Reblogging this again for all of this but especially the Aspergers syndrome. I have ALL of my respect for the people who have to deal with any of these mental issues, but I feel like it’s necessary to highlight Aspergers because I have it and I have not EVER heard a single person talk about it.

Don’t insult people by calling them Autistic, or that someone has given you Aspergers by how idiotic they are being.

You cannot know how terrifyingly lonely this is. You cannot know how much I want pure, complete human connections but I cannot have them. You have no idea how much my condition has made me turn inwards and destroy myself mentally because of something I cannot control.

I have immense respect for everyone who has to deal with a mental issue, but please remember those who are autistic. Everyone seems to forget them.

I liked it, up until it called autism a disease.

These aren’t diseases, they’re disorders.
Get your fucking facts straight.

I happen to have aspergers, and it’s not something you can catch, and it’s not something you can cure. In fact, I feel completely normal, because I feel like I’m just me. And you can’t cure your very nature, the part of you that makes you YOU. Yes, I am lonely. Very much so. Sometimes I hate myself, but you know what? I’ve learned to embrace it because it’s a part of me. So don’t tell me aspergers is a disease, because you’re calling me a disease, and that is the one thing I am not. I am a person.
