Autism Positive 2012 Flash Blog

A couple weeks ago within the autism community someone came up with the idea of creating a flash blog. Just like the flash mobs you see around the world. If you are not familiar to what is a flash mob here is the Autism Awareness Day Flash Mob that happened this year on April 2nd.

What started this idea is someone was desperate and was trying to find information on “I wish I didn’t have Aspergers.” So the creators for the Autism Positivity Day  flash blog wanted all bloggers to blog about the positive side of autism on April 30th and tweet the hash tag #IWishIDidn’tHaveAspergers with a positive message. This way all the blogs and tweets will flood the search engines for this individual and others searching to know, not to loose hope there is help and support out there!

My perspective on what is positive about autism:

–Autism does have a dark side and a light side; but it is the light side that keeps you going.

–Autism will teach you more about yourself than you have never known.

–Autism builds this type of patience you have never experienced before.

–Autism will force you to think outside the box.

–Autism is different for each person.

–Autism will show you a different world through different eyes.

–Autism puts everything in to perspective!

–Autism demands love, acceptance and understanding.

Please do not feel like you are alone. There are so many resources you can take advantage of to give you help and support. You have already made the first step in looking online. There are many online support groups and excellent blogs to guide you in the right direction.

Contact Autism Society of America, they have local groups in each state that will be able to find you the help and support you seek!
