Autism Sucks

I’m a father of a 16 year old you g man with autism. Let me just say- I love my son, and autism f****** sucks. It has been a communication barrier for years, and due to life, geography and a pandemic: we haven’t been in the same room for over a year.FaceTime was the plan, “he can call me anytime” I thought. It would work with any mainstream kid. But autism doesn’t work like that. You think something through logically, but f*** you, that’s just not how it works.
Nothing I my life makes me feel like more of a failure than when I desperately miss my son, but have zero ability to communicate with him. I send money- much more than I am required to. It’s no ones fault. Even when it’s no ones fault, it still rips into me.

  • Real selfish adults abandon Autism adults to Social Services, if I were that selfish Adult, I would have abandoned him a long time ago. But I’m not a selfish adult, I never had Children and I never will. I hate everybody, I hate Society, I hate my parents for having me and not preparing me for the world. I am no longer a Human being and I never will be a human being.

  • You are not a failure. He needs your love and it seems like you are doing the best you can. I know you are a great dad! Please keep up the great work : )
