Trigger Warning:Ableism, Strong Language
There is something dreadfully wrong with the world, when you discover you have a condition you were born with, a condition that defines you and you are afraid to tell your own family on fear of hatred
I remember about a year ago, I was at my aunts house and one of those despicable reality shows was on: "Beauty and the Geek". One of the contestants openly stimmed in the presence of of the girl they were all vying for. I recognized it as exactly the kind of behavior I taught myself not to do anymore as a preteen. And then I saw exactly why I felt the need to hide it. My aunt said to the television "Drop dead, you motherfucker".
I don't wonder what the judgement against me will be from my family. I have already been judged. Now that i think about it, I am afraid of something that has already happened.
