I’m so glad my friends are so accepting of my autism

My friend told her mom my favorite foods and foods that are bad for my sensory issues so I wouldn’t have to be uncomfortable during dinner

My friend bought me limited edition shiny Pokemon figures because she “knew it would make my hands all flappy and that’s how she knows I’m happy”

My friend and me caught a meowth than proceeded to jump around and squeal with me even though she hates meowth, because she knew he’s my favorite Pokemon and she knew I’d love for her to share my excitement

My friend star gazes and researches space so I can info dump on them, because they love seeing me happy

My friends are learning sign language with me for when I go nonverbal

I wish everyone tried this hard to accept autism because every autistic person deserves to feel comfortable around their friends and not feel judged for having autism
