Autism Awareness nail art
I have Asperger's Syndrome, which is a form of Autism. I'm proud to be aut, as the saying goes, because I feel like it's given me a special view on some things, even though some other things are hard for me. Today is World Autism Day so I've done some puzzles pieces nail art (inspired by a gummibear mani by CDB Nails) to support our cause! Click to see more!
There are many preconceptions about this condition but you know me, I'm not scary or aggressive. I'm not a retard. I'm not afraid of people and do not wish to be alone all the time. I don't sit rocking front and back all day, or flap my hands around. I don't scratch your eyes out when I get frustrated. All of that is so silly and not true! I don't even need people to understand what I go through every day.
What I do need is people to respect me for who I am, and to know that when I say something is hard for me, or I can't do it, that I'm not just being difficult or trying to get out of doing the work. This goes for any disability, I think!
I need a quiet place to work and live so I can concentrate. I need a steady daily rhythm and to know what's coming so I won't be surprised. That's all :) I'm pretty normal and you can't see my Autism on the outside, most of the time you won't even notice anything because the person it's hardest on, is me.
Today is World Autism Day, please take a moment to read up about Autism if you haven't, but remember to keep an open mind because we are all different :)
