Share Your Story
If you are autistic (either formally or self-diagnosed), and would like to share your experience of bullying and abuse, you can do so on this site via an anonymous blog post. Only the admins of this site will ever know who you are, and your identity will never be revealed to anyone. We also promise to take your story down (and/or let you edit it) if you change your mind about it being on this site.

Please email your story, preferably 500-750 words, to: info@lifeonthespectrum.net.

We might not be able to publish every story, but all will be given serious consideration.

Bullying & Abuse Research
Please also consider signing up to our Research newsletter, which will let you know about (and, if you’re in the UK, invite you to join) our up-and-coming research into the bullying & abuse experiences of autistic adults in the UK – currently planned for early 2015.

We will not spam you, or share your email address with anyone else.

    I wish you were never born
    We got the wrong one out of the hospital
    Stop fiddling with things…..constantly
    Clumsy girl
    Go Away, you are too demanding
    I can’t deal with your temper tantrums anymore
    A good dose of the Belt or Cane will sort you out
    Keep your mouth shut, impertinent child
    I don’t like you
    Why can’t you be more like your sister…she has friends
    You have no friends, nobody likes you
    You are too sensitive….toughen up
    Somethings wrong in your head……the synapses aren’t connecting
    You are dumb, without any brains
    Off to La La Land again…..
    Stop daydreaming and LISTEN to me

    Who are you?….you are not My Child

    Why don’t you love me?
    Why can’t you see me?
    Why do you bash and yell at me….it hurts
    I am here
    The World within me is beautiful
    But to you…I am invisible

      so much of that sounded familiar to me, things i’ve been told by my mom, my grandmother, teachers…was even one or two that my sister-in-law said to me.
      i knew there had to be a reasonable explanation to the issue, of me not fitting anywhere, anytime. forget about ‘square peg’, i’ve always felt as if i’m a parallelogram or an obtuse triangle.
      i just wish others hadn’t had those same things spoken at them, because i know how much those words can hurt, especially when it comes from someone important.
      i don’t know how to feel about learning these things about myself. but at least i can sort of see why my mother loved me, but didn’t like me. i wasn’t what she had hoped for. i just wish i could apologize to her. i feel like i owe everyone an apology now: friends, teachers, family…just everyone i had met in my life.
