My brain drives me crazy

So, I’m trying really hard to improve my independence and being able to write without holding someone’s hand is going to be the key to that. Once I can do that, I think my life is going to change. I don’t know why I can’t do it. It makes me feel mad and frustrated with myself but I just have to keep trying. I think that it is like my marathon training. At first, I had to hold onto a rope to be able to keep running but now I can do it by myself with a reasonably solid pace. I’m still holding onto the “rope” with my writing but I just need to keep training and eventually, I should be able to do it on my own as well. My brain drives me crazy, though. Why can’t I just do it? I know that I’m capable. How long will it take? I have no idea.

My goal in life is to help other people with disabilities, and to let the rest of the world know that most people with autism are intelligent and capable and can make a great contribution to this world. I am funny, athletic, and most of all, handsome. And I am a fast runner, a cool skier, and a sweet mountain biker.

    Aaron, I believe that you will be able to do it. You have the drive and determination and the desire so keep trying. Look at all you have accomplished in just the last year that seemed impossible just a short time before. Use your strong faith to press forward.

    You can definitely do it. I think you are stronger than just about anyone I know. The determination you have allows you to run marathons, which not many people can do. I know I can’t. I’m sure with the great amount of determination you have, you can accomplish this. I look up to you for this.
