You really think your children are the norm by which all other forms of autism are measured?

It seems like you can work. Can you get a job and make enough to support yourself?
Does your disease make you miss 10 or more days of work a month?
 Quoting: CocoNutFlake


I can't get a job. At least not one that requires interacting with other people. Which is all a job really is. Talking to your boss, talking to coworkers, talking to whoever, etc.

I can't even go to a store and buy something for myself without having a severe anxiety attack.

It's not that I'm talking to somebody either. It's the stimulation.

All of my senses are magnified. Which is why I have a photographic memory.

Lights give me insane migraines. Every sound is louder to me than it would be to someone else. Every taste, every feeling, every emotion is enhanced beyond a point that is bearable.


By the time the guy says, "Do you want a bag?"
I can't even think of what to say because it's just painful being there.
 Quoting: CJStryker


CJ, I hope you are still reading your responses at this point. Can we talk more about the anxiety you suffer from? Is it anxiety from having to deal with the stimuli or fear of other things?

Do you have anxiety all the time or are there certain triggers?

Thank you so much in advance for your time.

If you would have read that thread about Gluten it would be obvious why I was talking about that.

People with autism cannot digest the proteins in wheat, and when it get's into the bloodstream it travels to the brain where it causes a false-opiate like reaction.
 Quoting: CJStryker


What does gluten do to you personally? I know m,any aspies that avoid it like the plague but I am not convinced that it helps. But I am not autistic, so how can I say for sure, right?

And i find it funny how people in this thread got all insulted because people are supposed to get insulted if they hear that term?

Get over yourselves. I as not using the term in any derogatory way, using it to describe that the term is NOT used any more. It just so happens that yes, autism is one of the diagnoses that has replaced "MR".
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 27270668


I believe they still use MR. Autism is supposed to be distinct from MR in that you may have a kid with completely normal (or often very enhanced IQ) but they have massive sensory processing disorders that limit their ability to function.

if you have Autism, then Barak Obama truly must be American and Christian
 Quoting: Juggalo


Oh, that's crap. I'm sure there are different degrees of autism. I have an autistic friend; she is completely incapable of normal social interaction face-to-face, and everybody who meets her in person thinks she's retarded because she won't look at you when she talks (IF she even talks to you; usually when she's spoken to, she'll turn away and not answer, or sometimes she's so in her own little world that you can say something to her five times and she won't react in the slightest.

But she practically LIVES on Facebook, which is her social outlet, and reading her highly witty comments, you'd never think she was anything other than an ordinary -- and may I add, highly intelligent -- person.

I actually find it very fascinating to be able to get a glimpse of the mind of an autistic person. If you don't mind me asking, do you have those repetitive behavior -- like rocking or performing the same gestures over and over -- and if so, do you realize that you're doing it? Is it a means of calming yourself when the stimulation gets too much? Sorry, I'm just really curious.

Re: I have autism! Do you think I am truly disabled? Ask me anything.
With respect, there's a fundamental misunderstanding here.

Autistic people DON'T "have autism".

Aspie people DON'T "have aspergers".

Some people don't "have left-handedness".

ASD is a state of being. It's who we are. It's not something we have.

Autistic people ARE autistic.

Aspie people ARE aspergers.

Some people ARE left-handed.

It can't be erased, and should not be. Some of the syndrome aspects can be mitigated by some drugs(mostly illegal ones).

Aspergers is "right brained autism"(my definition).

We contribute, or choose not to, as a function of who we are.

We can't be cured - we're not diseased.

We can only conform within certain limits.

Our greatest pain is our inability to connect and be intimate - especially regarding the opposite sex.

We're mostly straight, though many think we're gay. We don't give off the social signals that are expected, and get put into the category of "different". Some equate that to gay, though it's not.

Straight women are often afraid of our differences, though we're generally the gentlest of men - strong and slow to anger. We're generally quite smart too. We can't read your body language any better than you can read ours, and it's sad.

I grieve for the lost opportunities.

Love you all - please be compassionate.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 42624243


To add to this:

Asperger's syndrome is a right brained autism. The effects generally don't affect intelligence, though our typical intelligence is above average and many are at the genius level. Our deficits are in interpersonal nonverbal communication. We can speak well, though intonation and affect may seem odd to "normals". With effort, we can train ourselves to act "normally". This works OK in business and even in normal social situations, though not always. The real deficit is in the difficult dance of actions and emotions known as romance. This includes attraction, courting, seduction, and continuing romantic interplay. It's impossible to fake, and is responsible for incredible hidden misery. If we're lucky, we'll find a nurturing woman that understands, or at least accepts who we are. If not, it's a life wasted chasing that which is supposed to "come naturally".

I don't know a single aspie guy that can parse the phrase "be yourself". It can't be handled logically, though most people understand it implicitly. Therefore, it's the worst possible advice to give a socially grieving aspie.

Many/most aspies can earn far above what's necessary to live comfortably. We feel little incentive to contribute to a greater society though, due to being socially/sexually ostracized by it. In the beginning we did, but we got punished for helping, so we detach.

Non-aspie autistics may have much bigger problems, since their autism is left brained and their deficit is in understanding/grokking our civilization and its technology. I can't truly speak to this since I've been blessed with a good left brain. Perhaps the autistics can excel in art, or other intuitive skills. I don't know.

Autistics have difficulty controlling emotions. Aspies have their emotions so well controlled you'll never quite know what the feel unless you take them at their word. Autistics may well be unemployable in any normal venue. Aspies likely work with you and you'd never know it, nor their social pain either. Both autistics and aspies have great sensitivity to stimulation - far more than normals can imagine - and their amygdala is in a constant state of stimulation. This makes the understanding and differentiation of others quite secondary to making sure we have a way out, and we can handle the perceived danger that the amygdala triggers.

Some of us are visual and think in pictures. Some don't. I don't. I can compose music in my head and listen to it. Others can't. Some of us are incredibly kinesthetic, though the society has a problem with that modality. We are all different in individual ways.

We don't like surprises. Not even good ones. They are terrifying.

Lastly, these are generalizations and there are exceptions to all the "rules". There's probably more useful info in these posts than in many books and websites on the subject.

It's unfortunate that DSM V decided to aggregate aspies and autistics - they are two different syndromes and the aggregation is not useful to anyone, other than possibly the politicians and bureaucrats.

Re: I have autism! Do you think I am truly disabled? Ask me anything.
As someone who works in one of the worlds leading upper-level research institutions, and happen to teach and work with a large number of adult "Asperger/Autistic" types, the only thing I can really say for certain about them is:

(and this is entirely from personal observation) They seem to be OVERTLY fixated on themselves. THEIR needs, THEIR wants, THEIR desires, what makes THEM uncomfortable, the kind of things that bother THEM. They pursue their own interest and passions to the point of ignoring every other person in their lives, and other people go: Oh cute. He has Aspergers.

Now this is somewhat vexing for people around them too. Why? Well although the individual in question might happen to be quite brilliant, it's not fun to be around someone who is only concerned about themselves. All the time.

That is why I call these "disorders" SELFISH disorders.

From the time we are all young, we all have to deal with situations that make us upset, that make us uncomfortable, that make us cringe, to deal with people we don't want to deal with, who intimidate us, who make us afraid etc.

Part of growing up is learning to tolerate these situations and learning that sometimes we have to do uncomfortable things, like talking to the check-out man at the grocery store, even though he bothers us. It makes us uncomfortable.

Well Autistic and Asperger types never learn to be aware of OTHERS needs and Wants. they are focused on their OWN experience so deeply they can't. It never occurs to them that the man at the grocery store might be terribly shy and uncomfortable too, because the Asperger person is far too fixated on themselves to even consider the other person.

Feel free to discuss this or disagree with me. It's just something I have observed.

Guys, listen. I have autism. I think critically. I have a photographic memory, and over a short period of time I can absorb something logical fluently.

Somehow I am disabled! I see people as truly equal, yet every Joe that doesn't like the way I am talking to them hates me. I accept people the way they are, but I am not accepted as I am. I am completely happy with myself, I understand why I am the way I am, and I know who I am.

Seemingly somehow this is a disability. My brain is not neuro-typical. Yet I don't see anything wrong with myself!

Everything is right, and I don't regret anything in life. I would not regret one thing because I might not otherwise exist in the world.

Got a picture for you all so you can see how happy I am!

psycho . youre just like all the other psychologists . you people are evil scientific dictators like Hitler . first off , aspergers is invented so if you want to look at what makes a person you call "aspergers" tick you might as well go up to 50 people label them all leprechauns for no fucking reason and then say to your self " now , lets look at the traits of these 50 people to see what makes leprechauns tick " as if these 50 people will somehow have the same traits and be exact clones of eachother just because they had the misfortune of each being labelled a leprechaun by a psycho ologist . dude , its not my fucking fault that psycho ologists woke up one day and decided to label selfish people as autistic instead of doing what they usually do and label good people able to resist the system as autistic . autistic is just a label you psycho ologists apply to anything you want it to . one day its caring introverts who want to better the world , the next day its selfish people so then you automatically deduce that autistic people are selfisih which is very stupid and ignorant to do , because in reality theres all types of people in the world both good and bad , kind and selfish who have the misfortune of being labelled autistic by you psycho ologists . and let me say this , the people you like to apply the fictional label "autistic" too who you claim are selfish , are in REALITY probably not even selfish . Theyre probably people who resist the system and the herd , and are independent thinkers . they probably are people who DO care about you and the right thing , and they want to do right . but the thing is , they discover what god wants them to do through their own discoveries , instead of going with what the herd thinks . they are INDEPENDENT THINKERS . they discover what the right thing is and believe in the moral absolute , so they refuse to recognize society's views as valid . Why should they ? Society's mainstream is a polluted bunch of psychos ! Most of the people you describe probably care about the right thing , they just discover the moral absolute on their own , and refuse to give into the immoral viewpoints of society or accept them , because unlike society they arent fools who believe in moral relativism and other pseudo-leftists crap . so being the whinebabies you are , you psycho ologists accuse them of being selfish when in reality THEY CARE , they just have discovered the right thing throuh god and refuse to give in to society's way of thinking , and refuse to accept other views as valid because they believe in a moral absolute and refuse to give into the "moral relativism" liberal crap . Good for them ! Independent thinking is NOT the same as sociopathy and emotionlessness and not caring for others , you idiot . In fact its been proven most people who refuse to have empathy ( and by the way its a moral choice you arent born un empathetic ) are those who also refuse to have independent thinking

I voted for Maybe. I have Asperger's myself, and I don't consider it a disability. I'm socially awkward, but that isn't a huge issue most of the time. It might be for some people though.

I think it is a disability if a person can't go out and get a job and interact with people IRL.
