Jacob: This is My Story
Written by, Jacob Eliot
Hi my name is Jacob Eliot, life has dealt me some twists and turns and some blows like everyone else. There has been a big turning point in my life that lead me to my fitness journey, and self discovery. I hope my blog can inspire everyone to really take your life in your hands and overcome obstacles and achieve your goals no matter how long it takes. To start off, I like to think I am like everyone else, and I want to be treated like everyone else. I never knew how different I was until maybe Jr High. When I was 5 I was diagnosed with being on the mild end of the Autism Spectrum. I never viewed myself as disabled and never will, because I feel like the term is loosely handed to.
It is funny because I couldn't talk until I was 4 1/2, and now I do not shut up for a little fun fact lol. That was one of my dad's jokes about me. P.S I miss you so much dad! I have my challenges growing up with Autism...
