I live with autism 24/7. It does not go away after awareness month. It is here to stay. I know the smiles and laughter of autism. I know the pain and meltdowns. I know what it is like to fight the school system. I know the happy and flapping. I know the struggles and worries. I know the pity looks. I know the comments of I'm sorry when someone finds out our son has autism. I do not need to know what autism is like. I already live and breath autism everyday including holidays.
