This diary is part of a continuing series documenting the experiences of someone diagnosed with Asperger's syndrome. If you want to start from the beginning, click here.I just saw this video, and those folks who are responding to what the Republican Sociopath said are right to feel sick, but you see, I don't just feel sick. I'm so disgusted I don't know whether to laugh or vomit. Perhaps at some point I'll do a little of both, but for now, I have something to say.
Those of you here who know my history know that my life has been a long and arduous journey. It took me a lot of work to get here, and I'll be god damned to have someone like Willard The Sociopath Romney throw me and others like me under the bus as he did with virtually the entire country.
Tell me, Mitt, do you know what it's like to live with a several disabilities caused by a birth injury inflicted by doctor negligence? Do you know what it's like to raise a child in such a condition? I highly doubt that considering what I've read and seen of you, but as for me...I've had to overcome more than you'll ever know.
I was 'raised' by parents who had no idea how to handle an Autism Spectrum child, much less one with disabilities, and that showed itself in many ways. Alcoholism was a strong factor in my upbringing because both my parents drank heavily to cope with their daily lives. I also lost my dad at a young age due to that lifestyle, and perhaps it was for the best. Add to that the fact that I was the middle child and you have what one would think was a recipe for disaster. I was lucky to make it through grade school and I couldn't make it in the world of minimum wage.
Well, it might have taken me a little longer than the average person, but I did get through it, with very little support for most of my life if I may add. In spite of everything, I'm still here and kicking, and I have 2 college degrees to show for my blood, sweat and tears, and to have someone like you throw half the country under the bus as you have done makes me want to vomit in disgust.
Rather than vomit, though, I'm going to prove you and your base wrong in any way I possibly can. I am not lazy, stupid or entitled as you or your supporters might claim. There is absolutely no shame in seeking a hand up, because we all share this planet and its resources. The fact that you and your supporters refuse to understand this shows that you are no more than a Sociopath.
End of Rant
Now that I'm done with that, I have some more news on what I'll be working in. It turns out I'll be stepping into the world of Geographic Information Systems, which deals with mapping out areas and learning about trends and patterns. After some research I find myself more and more interested as the days pass. The only thing holding the process up is paper work, but I'm sure my fellow kossacks know how that goes.
Anyway, just thought I'd end this on a lighter note.
See you around,
