One of my aunts says I'm very special to her. She admitted that I'm her FAVORITE niece in the whole world. She loved me ever since the day I was born, besides my parents. When I refuse to get out of the house she won't take no for an answer when she wants to take me out somewhere. She loves all her nieces and nephews but she said I'm her favorite outta all of them. My dad says I'm very special. I am so not special. Is it because I have a disability? Why are people with disabilities called special? I am autistic.
