Sad truth about me
I'm proud to be autistic and this image shows who I really am.
So this is an image I found after I was diagnosed with autism last year just before the summer holidays. I didn't really know who I was anymore. But now I see that I am a puzzle of insights, hope, love, compassion and friendship. It's made me look at life differently now. I have now come to see that no matter who I am I will always be like others; a human who has feelings and emotions but with an added extra of autism too. I'm proud to be autistic and this image shows a story in itself whilst also representing who I really am as well. A four-piece puzzle of wonder and mystery.
