dear Katie ,
Last Thursday I decided to watch the programe born naughty as these programmes hold an interest to me as I myself am on the autistic spectrum !!
I watched Honey and thought to myself here is a family who is trying to find out what is wrong with their daughter to have such meltdowns whilst at other times be extremely pleasant and caring child , it struck me that their other children seemed not to have such problems so could not be the parenting style .
I myself have aspergers (form of autism ) and ptsd as a result of the amount of trauma in my life so I myself known what it is like not to be in control of your emotions and go totally hysterical because something as simple as a shop design being changed can send u more or less hairless !!!
I had thought that other people in the country would be feeling the same as me so i was horrified when heard on the media what u had posted on twitter , i realise this is have made a name for yourself by making controversial comments but amazes that u think so differently from other people on social media
The reason i took for the parents having a diagnoses was that they could get help for their daughter as i myself am autistic i know that being with the right people and the right enviroment makes all the difference !!
i REALLY FELT for honey when she was unable to tell the story of the 3 pigs I must admit i am someone who finds story telling relatively easy but everyone is different and that is what makes the world interesting. I noticed she was really panicking when asked to do and felt for her !! I am autistic but am able to feel for other people mainly because of my love of reading which i have been obsessed with since a toddler reading helps you see another prospective
I have been extremely ill in the past but i belong to a reading charity where small groups of people read books together and discuss things through doing this you learn lots of different view points and maybe learn to see things differently !!!
I am not sure wether you have heard of mark haddon who wrote the curious incident book but I suggest you have a read if u are in the merseyside area i will give u copy through reading that book or seeing it on stage will perhaps make u see how difficult it is for people like myself to travel and do what so-called normal people take for granted take care and i really hope u read this and maybe take my advice i really think it might make the world of difference
