Too Nice to Have Real Peace

Story of My Life Pt. 12 by Jake McCClintick  2/19/19

Most other people, most not have real peace in other reality.  Sometimes I’m happy to not have face so many under stress kind of people. Too many I not able to handle feeling what I see on their faces. Most not look at peace.

Not so important to love to have so normal reality. Maybe having autism not so bad since I not sure I handle most nothing so worried.

Most really sorry to not like so many people all time, good to have time alone. To have soul not worried might have significant, nice benefits.

So need a purpose in this life. To make bad energy helps no one. Much better to have peace. I having more peace.

Nice mom not make me do Guitar store face too many strangers. Most good are so many kind people. Might most like them if I knew them better. Real not sure how I am supposed to get to know someone, not really able to talk to them so it is hard. Not sure if I exactly talked, I not sure I could embrace so many sort of people anyways. Most not sure of Love of God. Awful to not have peace.

Nice God sticks with us, loving us no matter what. Sticks with me on my really hard autism days. Not my reality to get to have so many not autism days. Really need to have nice, autism kind of peace. Others not have my life.

Most happy to love so many nice, kindred souls – not even have to get my autism. Most not realize to deal too difficult. So hard but God is with us all.  No exceptions!

Jake McClintick is now 23 years old and has been learning to communicate using a letterboard since age 18. He is diagnosed with severe autism as well as intermittent explosive disorder. Learning the process of using a letterboard through the Rapid Prompting Method (RPM) was a gradual process that took several years. We are still working on expanding RPM and Jake’s confidence/skills beyond our “work sessions.”  Regardless, this low-tech alternative communication system has been an answered prayer for us both.

At the age of 22 Jake began expressing his very personal thoughts and feelings more fluently with me (his mom), and it was his idea to begin writing “The Story of My Life” one day. This is his 12th entry to that story. He has given me permission to share his story and our conversations.

Jake 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.
