You can't be yourself.

1
I have Autism Spectrum Disorder and just got hired to work at a special education school. I'm afraid someone will find out and they'll fire me because I'm too much like the students to help them.

Play your strengths.

2
I have autism, but I get fired from retail jobs because I have sensory overload and behaviors because of it. I work from home, instead.

Patience runs thin.

3
I was fired because I have autism and I was learning too slow for the management's liking. They only gave me a week to learn how to be a manager.

You can do it.

4
I am trying my best. I have a full time job and pay for bills but people still judge me because I have autism and speech problems. It doesn't mean I'm totally useless.

You're trying your best.

5
I have autism and ADD... Today my work told me that they're going to stop scheduling me. It just really sucks when your best isn't good enough.

Nobody gives you a chance.

6
I have autism, the only work I can get is shop work. I want more in life, but I'm not cut out for anything else. Hell I can't even get a supervisor position. I'm a failure.
