In Tears of Pain: My Life with Autism, Marc Rivera welcomes you to his world of autism and chronicles his daily struggle to fit in to a world so unlike his own. The objective is to help people understand how much individuals in the Autism Spectrum need to be accepted as they are by society.
Based on his journal, Marc recounts many of the personal challenges he faced: bullying and ridicule from his peers, poor communication with teachers, trying to make sense of “The Rules” both at school and as a whole - to name a few.
In this alien world, Marc felt safe only in his own home. It was there that he felt, for the most part, safe and protected. He could always count on the love and support of his family, although at times they felt just as confused and lost as Marc.
Tears of Pain: My Life with Autism is a call to society to enter into the world of autism. Our hope is that readers will gain a better understanding of individuals within the Autism Spectrum. These special people, so similar yet so different from you and me, suffer torment and misunderstanding only because their brains are wired differently.
