What is Autism? (Iris Gray)

Written by Iris Gray

What is autism? That’s a good question. There’s no real answer to it, because autism is different things to different people. To some, autism is a curse that must be eradicated. To others, it’s a variation in human evolution.
I can speak only for myself and what autism is to me.
Autism is a part of me. It is a part of me that most of the time is neither good nor bad but is simply there. I have blue eyes, I have blonde hair, and I am autistic. That’s just the way things are. As Lady Gaga would say, I was born this way.
There are times when autism can be annoying or frustrating. These are usually times when my sensory issues or social skills deficits get in the way of my doing something that I want to do. That doesn’t mean that autism is bad. It’s just that being autistic can be more challenging than being neurotypical.
There are times when autism can be rewarding and fulfilling. When I attend autism conferences and spend time with other neurodiverse people, I have an amazing time and come away enriched. When I can figure out a problem by thinking differently, I’m thrilled. When my sensitive hearing enables me to hear something that others have trouble with, it’s like I’m rewarded for being autistic.
What is autism? Autism is my friends. Autism is my community.
Autism is me.

  2. ALL THANKS TO DR WILLIAMS FOR THE GREAT DEED HE HAVE DONE FOR MY DAUGHTER?
    My daughter suffered from autism for more than 2 years which we started experiencing in her when she turned 1 year and 5 months we all thought it will end but got even worse as days went by. We tried all several treatments and therapy prescribed by various doctors we met but to no avail, she lost total concentration and always complain of sensitivity to sound . She usually tells me she haves poor eyes contact. This were steady disorder that disrupted her entire life, even at night she slept less because of this.It was during a casual conversation with a friend that i learned about Dr Williams herbal medicine I was able to contact him on his email address. and give him all the necessary information that he needed,few day later he sent me the herbal portion and his medicine was able to restore her back to normal and she is very okay now without any side effects whatsoever.

  7. Doctor Williams Natural Cure to Autism,I have ever prayed to share my testimony so others would read and have a reason to fight on for there sons. I know you receive hundreds of testimonies; I pray mine will be published one day.I was a High School teacher until my retirement from classroom.

    Back when I was a teaching, I prided myself in my excellent memory.my son Having the ability to recall facts, speak eloquently, and mentor others, was all I lived for. my son was having a nice life, life was going fine until one day I noticed that my son memory wasn’t what it used to be. he was struggling to recall and retain facts. This was what he did with ease. he struggled to increase his study time and pace, because he felt he was not doing enough. As the year progress, he discovered that the more he studied, the less he recall. we all thought It was something normal, he had spent part of his life sitting down reading everything on ink and print. As time progressed, symptoms became frequent with other complications. As a result, I visited my doctor who advised I should visit a neurologist for my son proper diagnoses.My visit to a neurologist proved he had what is called classic" autism . Well before them, I have heard of children with autism, but classic" autism wasn’t a familiar word I had associated with autism. I went for further search in the internet; talked to doctors I know and even talked to autism foundations to broaden my knowledge of what my son we be facing.
    There were lots of constraints living with autism. he had to abide with certain do’s and don’ts he wasn’t used to. his autism were getting worst. Phonation and other drugs which are Anti-autism drug were prescribed to try and stop his speech delay, but none proved suitable. Instead his liver reacted badly to the first drugs. The second drug failed to control the autism. he began to feel very dejected and for the first time started to feel depressed.On these autism days of his life, i took care of me son, drove him around and ensures he stayed on his meds.

    I was told by my doctor never to take a single break without him taking his meds. Hell! I obeyed. I don’t want anything to happen to my son. But ironically, these Conventional Medications were killing him base on the side effect. I know they were,but was afraid of stopping it so the condition wont get worst,In desperation, I started visiting neurologists looking for a cure. Because he had stayed on these English medications long enough and he have not gotten a cure except more complications.

    I wanted other natural alternative devoid of side effects created by Phonation and other anti-autism drugs. Well, my search continued until someone suggested Herbs as a better alternative to treatment. But what do I know about Herbs, I am not an Herbalist so I know little about Herbs. I did more findings on various blogs where I saw lots of comment where people shared testimonies’ of being cured from autism , Herbs had cured people diagnosed of autism, so mine son won’t be an issue.I needed to get Herbal medication for my son autism. So I read a lot of blogs where people who shared their testimonies kept mentioning WILLIAMS Anti-Autism Herbal medication. I searched for a blog on Williams didn’t find one. I just followed the email address of Doctor Williams that was shared on these testimonies; I got lucky when I got a reply from Dr. Williams on how to get the medication from his customer service, I followed his instruction, which my son use in less than 1 months, his frequent autism reduced drastically. Within a period of 1 months, he was cured. I went back to my neurologist, where my son was checked up and marked autism free.Long story right… I can’t say all this in 10 lines, but if you are reading this, I want you know that Williams is the main drug for you in the cure for autism. It worked for my son; I believe it will work for you also. for more information on how to get his product you can email Dr Williams on drwilliams098675@gmail.com
