I Hate My Autistic Son
On September 3rd, 2014, Redditor vlog77 made a post to /r/confession titled, "I hate my autistic son." The Redditor went on to write, "I can't help it, my life is constantly terrible. I spend as much time at work as possible. The worst part is that I am supposed to pretend that I am happy about it. When we get together with the other parents and everyone is pretending their kids are as normal as anyone else. They are not. All of us secretly wish they were never born." The post (shown below) received over 960 upvotes in eight years.
