True or false? Autism is neither a “curse” or a “blessing”?

Despite me having this disability, unlike things like cancer, diabetes, aids, alziemers, anxiety disorder, PTSD, tumors which are all diseases and mental illnesses, autism is a developmental disorder or more so a genetic disorder that you’re born with a different brain wiring. Autism like closer to tourette syndrome, down syndrome, dwarfism, deafness, intersexual, and albinism than it is to other disabilities like Cancer, diabetes, aids, alziemers, anxiety disorder, dementia, etc.

    I cannot answer you on whether autism is neither a "curse" or a "blessing" because I do not really know although I am diagnosed with autism myself, but I agree with you that autism is a developmental issue and not an illness.
