The [A] word: [T]ired

Tired of being up all night.

Tired of feeling helpless.

Tired of not feeling good enough.

Tired of feeling like we make no progress.

Tired of being ignored.

Tired of being excluded.

Tired of people staring.

Tired of being treated like we are different.o_dente_de_leao_da_consciencia_do_autismo_deseja_o-r079a3806e36c40388746113b553c5e46_wvw_8byvr_512

Tired of being to comply to society’s expectations.

Tired of being compared to ‘normal’ kids.

Tired of people not understanding.

Tired of screaming.

Tired of trying to make them keep up with society’s latest definition of ‘normal’.

Tired of being stereotyped.

Tired of people who don’t understand Autism.

Tired of people who don’t make an effort to understand Autism.

Tired of people drowning in their ignorance and prejudice.

Tired of the consequences this has on our kids.

Tired of the pity.

Tired of assumption.

Tired of not being heard.

 

You can be tired, but you have to never give up; you can fall, but you have to get up. Make them listen; make them see; make them aware.

We, the families, have only one wish – help us make it reality & learn one new thing about Autism.
