Autism is… (The Caffeinated Autistic)

Written by and originally published at The Caffeinated Autistic

Autism is needing a visual schedule even at age 30.
Autism is the joy of flapping your hands when something makes your heart sing.
Autism is needing to allot hours to performing basic skills.
Autism is objects ceasing to exist if you can’t see them.
Autism is reveling in the good textures - running your fingers over every bump, curve and rivet.
Autism is finding a pair of headphones that makes going out in public bearable.
Autism is holding a bachelor’s degree but working in a drive thru.
Autism is echolalia.
Autism is seeing details that others miss.
Autism is being able to recite pages and pages of text that you learned when you were sixteen but unable to remember something you read an hour ago.
Autism is the fantastic feeling of not needing a weighted blanket because your (also autistic) seven year old is more than willing to press herself on top of your chest.
Autism is explaining to a new friend every last detail of your latest obsession and being overcome with relief when they don’t call you a freak.
Autism is joy and it is struggle.
Autism is not a tragedy or a health crisis.


  1. I give thanks to Dr onokun for helping me get a permanent cure to Uterine fibroid. I have used different western medication without any improvement, And I could not have a child of my own. I had heavy bleeding, frequent urination, a bulky stomach, and cramping. My bleeding is sometimes so heavy that I can’t go out. I go through 9-10 pads in a day. It is so uncomfortable. I have tried everything you can imagine because I’ve had my fibroid for 18 years but none of them have really worked. They just make you feel like you’re doing something but at the end of the day its not really much of a relief. People advertise all sorts of “Fibroid Cures”. I’ve tried all that you can imagine and they worked for a little while, but it’s not working out you have to keep on going. You cant really stop taking them. I got the contact of Doctor onokun from the testimony of people on the internet, and I contacted him through the Email and explained every thing to him. then he sent me his product which I used for 2 weeks. Now am completely cured so I really want to tell this to the world that there is a permanent cure to Fibroid. contact him on or whatsapp: +2349064844957 he can help on any health issues
