I personally feel I have a lot going for me. I have a great life! My family is always there for me when I need them, I am in a totally committed relationship with the love of my life Allie, AND I have a kickass job! Yes my family and I argue more than I’d care to admit, but that’s to be expected. I have a running joke with Allie that I am part cat. The story behind that is I had open-heart surgery and flat-lined when I was 4 months old and came back. MEOW! My job is one I consider vital. I educate hospital staff on how to safely interact with people who have Autism in a medical environment. I love the fact I can joke around, have fun, and educate all simultaneously at work! I have had some astounding and unreal experiences not too many people can say they have had. I have had an entire Washington Post article written about me. I went to an Autism Advocacy dinner in Washington, DC that encompassed the entire East Coast. But for me, probably the most memorable thing I ever did was attending the unveiling of the then brand-new Autistic Muppet on Sesame Street, Julia. For me, that was a really incredible day! So why should I say “My life is crap” or “My life sucks” when I have so many positive things going for me? Look, I am human. I have the off days and the shitty days, but that’s part of being human. You can’t be perpetually happy or perpetually sad. If you do, odds are you have some sort of other diagnosis like Depression or something. “Regular” people have the occasional shitty or off day. I thank God I always have people I can vent to or talk with and hopefully they won’t hold any of what I say against me. I know the people I care about most will always be there for me. So that is why I love my life. What do you enjoy about life? Thanks for reading!
