It may sound like I have a behavior problem when I tell you about my last few days, but I am really affected by seasonal feelings from allergies. They make me have a hard time controlling myself and stopping my impulses. I hit my mom and almost hit one of my dear therapists because I lost control of myself. I didn’t hurt her at all, I more so scared her because I haven’t touched anyone in over a year. I didn’t even know what I was doing until it was over and it scared me because I love them and didn’t want to hurt them. I think if people understood how the environment can affect people with autism, the world would understand our behavior more. I have a lot of control usually, but allergies can change that in a second. I see people with autism being labeled with a behavior problem all of the time when it is obvious to me that their environment is the cause. The picture shows how my eyes are affected by allergies. This is a shorter post, but I thought it may be helpful.
