Demi Burnett Reveals She’s Been Diagnosed with Autism – Get’s Trolled

Demi Burnett recently took to Instagram to reveal she has been diagnosed with autism.

The former Bachelor and Bachelor in Paradise contestant explained the disorder and asked her fans to be “open minded.”

“MAYBE A TRIGGER WARNING I DONT KNOW BUT HEADS UP,” Demi wrote in the lengthy caption. “I did a psychological evaluation and I’m autistic. There is a huge stigma when it comes to autism. I encourage you to be open minded and accepting. All I want is to have a better quality of life, I want to make sure anyone who is/was feeling like me can know you really aren’t alone. It can get better! And most importantly it isn’t your fault .”

She also revealed in a now deleted Instagram post that she was experiencing emotional breakdowns.

“This is gunna be the hardest thing to ever post and I’m so embarrassed but imma be real. My ego is livid. Happy New Year this is me 24/7 I’m not doing anything to envy I’m not ‘happy’ I’m not social. I’m constantly thinking and crying and trying to figure everything out. Countless hours blaming myself for everything that’s caused pain … I’m feeling pretty s**t/overwhelmed most of the time. BUT I KNOW I AM GROWING EVEN IF IT HURTS IT IS WORTH IT.”

Demi then took to her Instagram Stories, after dealing with online abuse & trolls ever since she spoke about her autism.

“Stop making people feel stupid if they think that they might be autistic, okay?” she began.

“Stop making them feel like that’s an absurd thought, because you probably don’t know anything about autism. So you probably should shut up, and let people explore whatever their body is telling them to explore”

“I don’t see what benefit there is in telling someone, ‘no you’re not autistic,’ as if you would have any idea. Don’t tell people that, it’s very damaging.”
