I am thinking of a title to a book I will write. My friends helped me generate my title.I had to consider how it would appear to other people. I took their ideas and expanded from them. I wrote more than twelve titles myself and decided to use this one: Under the Silence is Me: How It Feels to Be Non-Verbal.
I wonder what others would think of a non-verbal person. Do they think I have a brain? I want everyone to know that I am in here and use my brain daily. I get shut down by my seizures for a short while. Then, I am back thinking about my life and what is going to happen next that day.
I always have to fight against my stupid allergies. I have more allergies than anyone else I know. I have my mom to thank for finding things I can eat. She never stops trying to find a better way to feed me something different. I think being autistic has many challenges of being non-verbal but also having allergies. I will keep fighting until I can handle the food without a lot of worry.
