Best Things About Having Autism
The Top Ten
If I stopped being autistic, I would no longer be me. I would lose so much of my passion, creativity, and unique thinking. I would lose what makes me an acclaimed writer. I don't want to be a different person. Being myself is just fine.
Yes, it does make me who I am. If I lost all my autism, I would no longer have a sense of humor, as much intelligence as I do, or anything special about me. I would just be dull, a bleak person. - CinderpeltandCinderheart
Most of the Items on this list is just something that would work for EVERYTHING.There should be Items like "you can see more details" or "you can remember names easier".
Don't get this one...
Not to be boasting, but I am pretty much a walking, talking encyclopedia because of this. I know a lot of music bands, random facts, etc. I can memorize things extremely well, to the point where it's like photogenic memory. These fact- checking habits are one of the things that interest me the most, and it's probably because highly functional individuals have that savant like ability to have a knowledge on everything. It helps that I have ADHD, which fuels my interests. I'm not trying to put anything down; I'm no different from any other person who's not autistic. But I just wanted to share this out ( on this list). - MusicalPony
True true. I remember that one man who was mentally retarded or autistic and is a living human encyclopedia, as in he could answer almost any question about anything in the world and he would know the answer. Dang incredible! - keycha1n

As someone who suffers from autism, I know this for a fact. I think a lot differently than others. I'm really weird because when I look at numbers or recite numbers, I see colors, shapes, and patterns. Is this something to worry about? - RockFashionista
Yes but you don't think different from me I have autism too
No you don't have a different brain you just know more.
Ugh, no. Most of them are rather offensive.
Sounds like a good title for a horror movie. - SuperHyperdude
