How do I help my autistic brother?

  March 21st, 2018 by Blugirl16

Not even an hour ago my 21 year old severely autistic brother asked me to help him be normal, and asked me to help him be happy, in so he proclaimed he was depressed. He said that he was sorry about all the pain he caused me when he abused me physically and emotionally in the past. He said that he was tired of crying.. It was deemed impossible for him to vocalize his feelings in that manner…the words he said was something I would expect to hear from a normal person…to hear him express his emotions like that, shattered whatever was left of my heart. I don’t know how to help my brother…i’m the only hope he has left to be what’s considered normal..and I don’t know if I can handle that responsibility. Just knowing how hard it was for him to open and to articulate his feelings vocally in an intelligent manner has me speechless…
