High Functioning

What does that really mean?

Honestly, for me, it means that I’m really good at not doing what I want to do.

It means that when I want to be happy, I hold it in. And when I want to break down, I hold it in. And when I want to rock back and forth or flap or touch walls as I walk by or yell at people or jump up and down, I don’t.

So… don’t tell me I don’t have autism because I hold it in. Don’t tell me I don’t have problems because you don’t see me going crazy in the corner. I’m still going crazy; I’m just doing it where you can’t see it.

Yes, I’m high functioning… but that may not mean what you think it means…
