Autism Can Be Hard to Live With

by Renee

I love my big brother Connor, even though autism can be hard to live with.

Sharing a room isn't so bad, but I can't wait until I don't have to do it anymore.

Autism can be sweet, loving and funny one minute -- then sensitive, selfish and angry the next.

Sometimes Autism gets so frustrated he hits me hard and makes me cry.

I forget Autism can't control his impulses because I'm only seven-years-old.

Mom and Dad don't have it easy either, because when they have peace, Autism causes chaos.

I always try to make people happy. I wish I could always make Autism happy.

I hope when my brother and I grow up, we will always be there for each other.

After all, Autism is the only brother I have.
