Dear Autism

You made me cry. You consumed my thoughts.  You made me learn about therapies, supplements, diets, meltdowns. You changed my plans. You slowed me down.

You make me look at others differently.  You make me more compassionate. You make me learn. You changed my family. You are a part of my son that is crazy good and crazy bad.  You spark debates.  You make people angry.  You make people change. You make me laugh. You make me stronger.

You are a part of him.

You do not define him.

You are not him.
