LITTER (letter) TO THOSE PEOPLE WHO DON’T BELIEVE IN ME.
DEAR NT PEOPLE
NO YOU DON’T KNOW WHAT ITS LIKE TO HAVE AUTISM BUT LIMBER YOUR MINDS A LITTLE BETTER. MAYBE YOU HAVE KINDNESS IN YOUR HEARTS, BUT YOU ARE VERY SADISTIC IN YOUR BELIEF THAT PEOPLE WITH AUTISM HAVE NO BRAINS. WE FIGHT OUR BODIES ALL THE TIME. WON’T YOU STOP MAKING US HAVE TO KEEP WORKING TO PROVE OURSELVES TO YOU? I’M REALLY SMART UNDER THE SURFACE. LISTEN TO OUR WORDS. HERE (hear) WHAT WE ARE SAYING. I’M YOU TRAPPED IN A BODY THAT DOESN’T WORK, YOU’RE ME IN A WORKING BODY. DON’T YOU WISH WORLDS LIKE OURS COULD GET ALONG?
