Autism Awareness by mdchan Autism Awareness by mdchan
Welp, I found out on the last day of March that the second day of April is Autism Awareness Day...

Sort of a funny thing to not know before hand since I have Asperger's (though, the DSM is combining it all into the category of "autism", so I've been just calling it "autism" lately).

But, there were folks talking about it in the community I'm part of, so I decided to do something for it.

The poem, I made myself. The characters in the picture are my best friends and I as furries. My furry character is the blue wolf in the middle (also the one on my DevID).
One of my friends wanted to be a bat-fox, so that's what the flying furry is. The others resemble their animals to the point of not needing an explanation (I hope).

Don't remember how long it took to do it all...a few hours, at least, for the drawing.
The poem didn't take long to come up with.

My nephew has severe autism. He's 11 and was diagnosed when he was 3. Communication is not his strong point. To convey his feelings, he mostly quotes movies and TV shows and such. But I imagine this is how he feels.

It makes me happy to hear that you think about how your nephew feels (and obviously try to understand him).

Yep. I didn't find out until 3 years ago, either. It's April 2nd in particular, but the entire month of April is pretty much looked at as Autism Awareness Month.


PS: Thankies for the watch! ^w^

Thank you!
I always like hearing from people that try to understand autistics; it restores my faith in humanity that some folks care enough to try and understand.
