I’m a very lucky guy. I have parents who support me, autistic traits and all. They always have loved listening to me infodump. They’ve listened to me talking about space, my lifelong special interest, for hours. They got me a 3D glow in the dark solar system that hangs from my ceiling when I was little (that I still have!), a light up moon for my wall, and all the books I wanted about it.
They still support my autistic traits, rather than trying to “correct” them. They let me stim however and whenever I like. They gave me ear defenders because I have a lot of issues with sound sensitivity. They try to help me understand social situations without making me conform (for example, by explaining that some people laugh at me, not with me, and they’re mean people that I don’t have to talk to). I’m very blessed.
