How do others on the spectrum discuss your Autism with your families? Mine doesn’t really want to hear it. And my sister said it doesn’t really seem like what I have. contrary to the opinions of two doctors and a therapist. I’ve tried to tell them about it. Loaned them books and sent them links. One sibling knows a little bit about it. But on the whole my relatives seem more distant since I was labled Autistic. I don’t feel comfortable stimming in front of them. Accept one. They won’t read my blogs. strangers know more about my disorder than my family does and that is not right. I was first given a diagnosis-the wrong one-at age eight. it’s only since the lable Asperger’s came along. What would another person on the spectrum do? I’ve tried and tried. But it’s like pulling teath on a cobra.
