Comments: My brand of autism is complex. Mom had mental health issues. Dad was an alcoholic/aspie. Then we've got a rare autoimmune disorder lurking in the alleles as well. But I like being me, now--at almost 40. I don't know anyone stronger than me. I am funny, smart, clumsy and nonjudgemental in equal measure. I feel lucky and rare most of the time.
