Call me a pessimist

Today I was scrolling along my feed on Facebook and came across this. My first thought was LUCKY??? REALLY? Call me a pessimist, but there is nothing "cool" about autism or "lucky" about it. I love my son to death, but you can bet your ass if he could have been any one of the other 87 kids out there without autism our lives would be easier. I hate how autism makes everything harder for ALL OF US. It's not just about what makes MY life harder. It's about it making HIS life harder. He is going to have struggles for his entire life. How is that lucky? How is that cool? It's not. And I hate when crap like this tries to pretend it is.
