Removing autism

By rosieweldon

I’ve always said I’d never change who I am, I’d never ‘remove autism’ from myself if I could. And yet, today sat here typing this, if someone offered me a pill and said it would cure autism, would I take it? Yeah, I would.

I advocate that autism does define me and it is a part of who I am, and that’s true. But there is also in my own mind a clear distinction between autism driven behaviours that are outside of my control, and my own self.
