Oftentimes, Jake's biggest challenges are fear based. Along with Autism he is also diagnosed with Generalized Anxiety Disorder - NOS... among many other things. He writes to calm himself and to let others know what's going on in his head. As you read these snippets, read between the lines and feel his fear. Fear of someone being upset with him. Fear of Jail. Fear of not being perfect. Fear of people not understanding him. Fear of not being in control or able to control others.
Jake sent me a series (20) text messages to write this story. When he's upset he purges into notes/texts on his phone. They are in no particular order, but fascinating nonetheless. I've edited so they make sense, have some appropriate grammar, while keeping his message.
