Ask doctors to treat dear dear autistics with respect

Respect from doctors remains elusive.  Feels like respect to people who don’t talk remains wished for. Doctors have disrespected me by holding my hands and speaking about me like I am not in the room. Doctors underestimate my intelligence. Doctors should start talking to me and start asking details regarding my illness to me. Doctors need lessons on empathy.

  1. Nevaiy,
    You are a good advocate for yourself and others. Have you told this to the doctors? Sometimes we adults do things like this unintentionally. Even then it is not right. When it is brought to our attention we realize our mistake and correct ourselves.
