Story of My Life (#2) by Jake McClintick
October 16, 2018
Not too terrible to have life with nice, loving mom. So not too much to complain about really. Not too terrible to everyday life. Really thankful my family is most really nice.
Most sometimes I not so mad to have autism. Not too terrible if I not make myself get so mad. Have to remember to think mostly happy thoughts. So love my nice and most loving family. Have the most nicest people that love me, so not too terrible at all. To stop really not nice thoughts have to not let them take over my mind.
Jake is diagnosed with severe autism as well as intermittent explosive disorder. He has given me permission to share his story and our conversations. He continually expresses his desire to “find purpose” to his life…I hope his willingness to share will help others learn about this misunderstood condition known as “autism” that has so much to teach us all.
