      If I’m really honest, my condition is so bad, anything I do is always a step in a negative direction. I often put myself down. I have bad intrusive thoughts, and happen to be on the autistic spectrum, and that makes me think bad things. In fact, what is so weird is I actually feel quite proud to have these thoughts. Good people wouldn’t be, and I’m not honest and don’t try to take responsibility for myself and my thoughts. How can this ever get easier and better?

        In a way, it can be both a curse and a blessing… We share… Something that doesn’t happen naturally in society these days.

        We are able to identify… Unlike many professionals who don’t experience life the way we do.  This cannot be taught in a classroom… We have hands on experience.

        In a way, we can be proud of ourselves,  bearing in mind that this is a hidden handicap.

        And we face it every waking moment… Wow…
