Some posts you should read:
If you were physically, mentally, or emotionally abused because of being “different” from the “typical” child, you are not alone. Even before receiving any diagnosis, many autistic children have suffered very much due to being pressured to try and behave more like “normal” children.
Neurobigotry against anyone who deviates from the “norm” is all too common. Too many suffer from being shamed and bullied for their differences. It is wrong to make a person feel bad for being themselves.
I have been having some very enlightening conversations via private messages with other Autistic Adults. It seems that many have suffered in silence for many years over the non-acceptance that they suffered while growing up. Many suffered at the hands of parents, carers, teachers, bullies, etc. and have not spoken out about this because of social pressure to show respect to authority figures.
I repeat, you are not alone. There are many just like you out there.
