Everywhere I go I’m made fun of for being r*tarded.. even though I’m masking and nobody realizes i really have autism. it’s really hard to be made fun of every day for a condition they think is a funny, made up excuse for being “stupid” while i really do have mental disabilities. i struggle with the idea that “autistic” became something to call people as an insult. Any ideas to help with coping? Everyone just tells me to ignore it :/

    Get those toxic people out of your life! They don't deserve to see what a wonderful human being you are. I suggest joining groups on Facebook. I'm a part of a couple of them and they're just hordes of supportive people who won't make fun of you and will accept you

    I know how you feel, so the best advice I can give, is try to educate them on what it means to be autistic... if they aren't having it, then let it be and try to move on with your life. If they can't see how amazing you are, and see how strong of a person you are.. then they aren't worth your time. I may not know you, Lyn.. but I know you are an amazing person! Don't let others bring you down
