April is Autism Awareness Month. The Awareness Day for this was the 2nd of April, so I missed it. But I’m writing about this because my mom called me the other day informing me that it was Autism Awareness Month and it occurred to me if we people with diabetes plea to others to listen to our information, get to know what our lives are like, and if we ask them to care about our cause, we should probably do the same for them. Reading about autism I realized we have some things in common. Our conditions have no cure. Our conditions carry a stigma. The rate of diagnosis for diabetes and for autism are rising each year. Our conditions are expensive. And, we are all often so misunderstood.
I don’t think it takes a lot of time out of our day to learn just a little bit about something else. So because it is the kind and caring thing to do and because we should set an example of what we’d like in return, here are some quick links to check out about Autism Awareness month. Thanks, Mom!
