Today, my mom yelled at me for still having a disability at the age of 30, because I should have "grown out of it by now." Then she blamed it on the fact that I got my COVID-19 vaccine. Autism isn't caused by vaccines and it's never going to go away, no matter how old I get. FML

You have two disabilities it would seem, your autism and your Mom’s stupidity. Obviously your recent COVID vaccination had nothing to do with your pre-existing autism. That’s just shows she’s stupid as it is obviously impossible. I am glad, by the way that you got the vaccine - It shows you didn’t inherit your Mom’s stupidity. Some people with autism, depending on their degree of autism and their other talents and skills are; can become successful in careers or jobs that let them show their strengths and are understanding of their limitations. I knew and worked with a successful and very skilled electronic engineer that, in retrospect, I am pretty sure was autistic. Obviously it all depends on your individual talents and opportunities, but it does show that autism by itself doesn’t have to be the end of your hopes and dreams. Forget Mom for a minute. I had cancer of the esophagus and had the operation that removed the majority of my esophagus. They also found cancer in some of my lymph nodes and removed that at the same time. Then I had chemotherapy. Besides the misery that is chemotherapy, I am left with neuropathy in my hands and feet from the chemotherapy. It’s been 2 years since I completed chemotherapy and I am in remission from the cancer. But my hands are still partially numb as well as my feet and I have to use a cane for balance. My neurologist has confirmed my suspicions that while I might still have some slight improvements, I am stuck with the neuropathy for the rest of my life. Before I became an electronic engineer working mostly with my mind I learned woodworking from my grandfather and general repair skills from my father. I don’t trust myself using power tools and woodworking is/was one of my hobbies. I have much more trouble now grasping small parts which affects my other hobby - electronics. Should I give up and die or go on with my life? If there is one value I learned from my father and grandfather it’s to do what you can with what you have. My mind still works. I still want to live. You need to do that too - figure out what aptitudes you have. Find a way to improve the skills you have that would allow you to improve your life and find accommodations that allow you to better interact with people. Is that easy or guaranteed to always be successful- No. But every success you have will feel all the better to you. One thing I learned in my career is that the more difficult the problem, the better you feel when you succeed.

Well, it's pretty fucking impossible to get ASD from a vaccine if he's had it for the first 29 years, so there's that.

I am so sorry to hear this. Also, I accidentally his YDI, I certainly did not mean to. I selected FML straight afterwards. I hope some peace finds you. My Grandma and Mom were the same way with me twords my disabilities.

Science until today does not know what causes ASD, so stop saying such and such does or does not cause Autism. And btw I am father if two kids on ASD.

Autism isn't caused by vaccines. That they actually do know for sure. Fairly certain.

Suppose the Covid vaccine did cause autism -- it's only been available for less than a year. What would explain your first 29 years? Present this line of thought to your mom and she'll likely burst into flames.

Forgive her, she probably has other sources of stress, though that doesn’t justify her taking it out on you.
