Asperger's & Autism Forum
Jw how the process happend for some people , I would like to take a test myself because iam not diagnosed , I should stress maybe my symptoms don't lead to aspergers and lie some where else I just see a lot of familiar story's . Anyway i don't know if I should make the first step? My lines complicate things because of my other mental issues but none the less let me know
I'll leave this one here for anyone interested;
(The Ted talks video offers subtitles and a transcript for those interested; click the Ted logo on the top left in the video to head to the Ted talks site about the video)
I'd like to point out this is not an invite to debate vaccines, since the video does touch upon that, since it's very much part of, well... autism culture and history.
Is Sheldon autistic? Amy from The Big Bang Theory has a brilliant answer
"Love is the only game that is not called on account of darkness."
This quote, a favorite on the Internet, may be referring to the dating habits of the general population. But as someone who's grown up with Asperger's Syndrome, I find the quip uniquely fitting for the autistic community. Dating on the spectrum involves more darkness than usual.
But despite the challenges, the perspective of those on the spectrum reimagines dating's dark rules through a thoroughly...
WARNING: Some of the video in the story (link at bottom of page) is graphic and might be disturbing to some viewers.
CLEVELAND, Ohio– The video is so violent, the victim’s mother has a hard time watching it.
“I was hurt. I was angry. I was upset. I was mad,” said Swann.
She said her young daughter has been bullied before, because the autism affects her ability to communicate normally.
“She mimics people,” said Joyce, “But she doesn’t mean no harm, because she...
After your diagnosis, after the surprise/ relief/ shock wore off, and you started getting involved in the community here or with other autie's did you start to feel a sense of belonging or even home almost? Throughout my whole life I've never ever felt like I belonged- but once I started getting involved with others on the spectrum, for the first time I felt like I wasn't such an alien outcast. Is that pretty common with you guys too?? Feeling like you actually belonged somewhere- with other...
I found this helpful article online today: A SURVIVAL GUIDE FOR PEOPLE WITH ASPERGER SYNDROME
I apologize if it's already been posted or if I have failed to post it in the appropriate place.
I find that it has some really useful information.
Rutter: Rauner cuts autism program funding when target must be pensions - Lake County News-Sun
Am I glad I left Illinois in 1991. I though Tom Corbett, former governor of PA was a jerk. Raumer sounds like a psychopath. Of course, this is Illinois, where the mantra is vote early, and vote often.
We talk a lot about the negative symptoms of ASD or aspergers, but there can be some positive effects as well. Here are some of mine:
1. The ability to completely ignore things that don't interest me. This saves lots of time and allows more time to pursue the things that are most important to me. There is so much garbage in the world that wastes people's time and gets them sidetracked from the goals and values. An aspie can cut right through that. Marketers probably don't like aspies...
So i just read about misophonia and realized that it sounds a lot like me but im not totally sure. Like the sound of people eating makes me unbelievably and incredibly angry. same with the sounds of loud coughs. And its nothing personal. Its just those sounds. And its not a mild frustration. Its anger i can barely control and hold sometimes. The feeling that comes with the sound is rather odd and difficult to explain. Can anyone relate? is it a common thing for aspies to have misophonia?
