As some of you know, or may not, it is International autism day, and it is all over the news. I was looking at some figures, 1 in 110 kinds in Australia, one in 88 in the states, and one in 55 in SK are diagnosed with the disorder. Those facts just shock me, i have numerous mental problems (although i do not have autism) ,and a twisted sense of humor,and it got me thinking, what would a world be like if we treated Physical illness and imperialism as we to mental ones:"bro, you just THINK you need insulin becous you can't deal with reality""It is about high time you snap out of this "cancer" you have, it is you problem, not mine""WHAT DO YOU MEAN WE HAVE SOME GUY WITH MS WALKING AROUND, CANT WE LOCK PEOPLE LIKE THAT UP"You get the point. The more interesting part, autism is not covered my insurance, despite the fact that treatment is insanely expensive. We act like if you have something wrong with you head, you should be locked away, banished from society (and as history has told us, some take it to the extreme COUGH COUGH hitler COUGH COUGH), and it is not the government as in the case previously stated, is is the associations70% of people say they hear the word "depression", first word to come to mind is "weak" 58% for autism, "outcast"87% for suaside, weak, selfish, sinnerAgen, catch the driftAnd another thng that is not helping, is people who don not have the illness, poking at it, "i hate being bipolar, it is awsome""i have to get out of bed and see PEOPLE, and DO THINGS'' You have never been in our shoes, you do to know what we go though.Mental disease is, well, a disease. The thing about a disease, is they have a cure. Just needed to blow off some steam.
