Autism
I am tired of the way autism is shown and discussed in the media. It is not only harmful for relatives of autistic people - but also for us who are diagnosed with autism. You can quickly come to think that you are a "bad autist" or that you are wrong when you rarely see a nuanced story about what autism is in the media. Autism is not a disease. Autism is not a great gift either. Autism is just autism. .

Amputee with hope
I was a healthy sporty teenager who used to be adventurous, but trying crazy stuff cost me a lot. I liked the idea of Parkour, it just feels like there are no borders, just jump it or climb your way around walls and buildings. One time I did a crazy stunt, I was on the roof of building and tried to jump to the next building's emergency stairs, I landed poorly, my leg got stuck between steel bars, it got broken and injured. That seemed curable but gangrene got to my leg through the wound. It had to be cut off from under the waist. I can't describe how that felt for a teenager that used to be full of life and power. I suffered from depression for 3 years, failed my classes and lost the will to live. But with therapy and inspiring handicapped people I got back on track again, especially after watching the Paralympic games, I watched them with passion and thought how great that they have the power to be professional athletes, So I decided to be one. I saw amputee swimmers who the same issue like me, and wanted to start training. It's been two years and the city mayor helped provide all I needed to train and participate in contests. I'm thankful to everyone who inspired me to get my life back!
