So, I’ll be staying at the Knight’s inn? The pictures don’t look tooo bad. But the reviews sound terrible. Also there’s no tv and no place within walking distance to go. So boredom will be a big problem!! Has a pool but I don’t swim. Not even internet in the rooms. Nobody not even my cat to talk to. Will be ithout my special interest and special friend. No attention has been paid to my depression. by my so-called “carers.” Guess you can’t put it in a box so they don’t care. What about me as a person? What about my Autism? Do I not matter? How much more of this pain can I take? Well, should I insist on the room with the jacuzzi?
I feel emotionally abandoned, “Michael” is moving me to a hotel while he comes to my apartment and throw everything out. No consideration is being shown to the fact that my mom’s tables-the only things I have left of her-are not being preserved. They are showing no consideration for my feelings what so ever. It’s like they are saying, we’re going to take you to this hotel. You have to but your beloved kitty who I desperately need for emotional support-to a vet for boarding. Leave the window of my apartment open in a very bad drug infested neighborhood. Buy new furniture since mine will be discarded. Isolate me in the hotel. Without access to my “support system” if you can call it that. Go without my special interest. The problems here have stemmed from my caseworker not doing his job. I am in a very bad depression. They told me they will replace my broken microwave and we are arranging for someone at another agency to come in a teach me life skills. Bought me a new outfit.Yet I feel emotionally betrayed and abandoned. There seems to be no thought to my depression and fears. I’m not sure really how to explain it. “Therapy” would be a prescripted thing designed for those with other disorders. No real input or interaction about what I’m feeling or am going through. One on one therapy would only take place every one or two months. Hello? All I have is a hotline number. They don’t care about how ,my Autism is doing. Emotionally I feel like I have been to the Judge Rotenberg center. granted, they are planning to help me move. But it’s like an emotionally sterile reaction on there part. My family is not there for me. it will be nice to come home to a clean air conditioned place. But my emotions are taking such a blow that I wonder if I’ll survive it. Those tables are precious to me. This pain feels like a physical assault. Can’t take much more. Tomarrow is supposedly D-day. That hotel sounds like torture. Although much nicer than here. Don’t know what to do. Granted they are going to pay for it. Hotel because other place didn’t work out. Might call hotline. What if I say I don’t want to go to hotel and board my kitty? I almost dread the answer. All this stuff was planned without input from me. Oh well. I’m a tough girl. There is a large plastic tub to put things in. That stuff I keep. the tables don’t fit inside. Feel like I am betraying my cat by boarding her. what will she think?. Don’t want to go “Michael” But will see what happens.

‘Through My Eyes’ live at Autism’s Got Talent 2012, an event at the Mermaid Theatre which showcases the talents of autistic people from across the country. AGT was specifically designed to be a show environment safe and open for autistic people and is the first known event of it’s kind. Sorry for the sound issues, the track was louder than I was!
DVD’s of the event, featuring Britain’s Got Talent’s James Hobley, Autistic Superstars’ Carly Ryan and Martin Finn, and a host of talented children and young adults are available at: http://www.annakennedyonline.com/page…

To the person who found my blog by searching Google for “feel like I’m a burden Asperger’s. You are not a burden. Quoted from the link.
I have an idea for an Autism education program. Not a flashblog book or video. Made strictly by people on the spectrum. Have a room where people sit down watch and listen. Have somebody talk, a film maybe. So many times I have heard that we don’t know what Autism moms go through. What about a speaker who’s child was one of those who was killed? A sensory simulation with very bright lights, hot or cold temperatures and an unpleasant smell? If NT’s began to cover their ears or hold their nose, do “Quiet hands” and hold their hands in their laps? Call it Autism beyond the blue light and hold it during April? When people light it up blue. Tell them the truth!! So many Spectrumites speak up on Twitter blogs and Facebook only. Saying how bad things are and that nobody pays attention. Go to where the NT’s are!! Tell them abut Autism speaks. About the center where children are tortured. Tell them about the killing. About the discrimination in housing employment and parks. Tell them about the bullying. Many people are ignorant. But I can’t do this alone. And don’t know anyone on the spectrum here. Would like as many people with Autism involved as possible. Even nationally. This picture is from Twitter.
This is an open message from me Craig Thomson the creator of the autism survival manual here on you tube.
