Asperger's & Autism Forum
Hello everyone, I'm new to the group and looking for some advice and maybe your experience on this. I had a 12 year old son with aspergers and ADHD. He was diagnosed when he was 4/5. He has made great progress thru out the years and we are in a great school district.
Here is the problem we are having. He has almost no self control and is overly interested in sex. From a very young age he would do things like undress himself on the school bus, now that he's older he tries to look up pornography on any electronic device he can and will masturbate in the school bathroom or in his room at home. He will talk about sex and especially at school, he likes to get attention from his friends which is why we think he talks about it at school.
We don't suspect him of being abused by anyone, he has no access to electronics in our home that have internet on them. It's very concerning for us because we do not understand why he will not control himself and why he thinks it's a good idea to talk...
Even though I never liked it it was immensely popular with my classmates growing up and is still popular with autistic children today. What's the appeal?
Hi All, Can some one help me?
I am a 56 year old American male living in Germany. I was diagnosed in 2013 here in Germany.
I am supposed to be undergoing some unrelated medical tests. The problem is, They make a plan or say they will do a certain procedure and try to do something else. When this happens, I have fear that they have me confused with someone else, that they just want me to be a patient forever, that they are out to get me. This throws me into a panic attack. I run away. Taking the iv out on my own and leaving before I go into a meltdown in a public place.
This is causing me problems. They are triggering me into the panic attacks. Panic that I will go into a meltdown. I feel it coming on and I know I must leave within a few minutes (maybe 3 minutes) or I will go into meltdown.
What can I do in Germany against this treatment. I don't want to complain, but they are terrifying me. My Aspie diagnosis is on the first page of my Medical history so they know.
Tired of people who always come up to me, in the pretense of being friendly, with the constant suggestion of telling me where to go. It always seems to involve driving somewhere, and to do this. As a older individual, l don't need you in my face, telling me what to do, what to get over, blah blah blah. l am still working through a traumatic marriage and divorce, and l had a lady who just decided to play faux therapist and tell me to get over it. How do you handle overbearing people?
My husband says: you always look at the ground when you walk; try walking tall.
I have good shoes now ( have small feet and as a child and teen, had terrible trouble with footwear), but as soon as I start walking without thinking or concentrating, I trip up.
3 times this morning I did this; so annoying.
Today, got my official diagnostic for aspergers. I am borderline severe.
Conveniently, the sun was shining through the blinds and so he saw the reaction from me ( too bright for me). I was also stimming and could barely meet his eyes.
Went through a questionaire and my husband was amazing in how he helped me.
I see my psychiatrist next week (sigh) and hopefully get help with finding work convenient for me or help financially.
My 12 year old son is high functioning. A year ago I got him glasses to diminish the blue light from screens (since he spends so much time on them.) Ever since then, he refuses to take them off at all. If I take them away for a few minutes he gets a headache and hides his face. I know he’s hiding behind these clear glasses
but I would love to see his face again!
Should I give up and let him wear them all day? Is it too stressful for him to try and limit wearing them?
Warning: hospitalization, older/younger relationships, manipulative relatives
Okay so I was diagnosed with Aspergers along with several other disorders at 14 after a 12 day hospitalization at an acute treatment center.
Cut to me being 20 years old, independent, collecting disability with no payee, paying rent, electric, phone bill, etc. I entered a relationship with a man back in May and my aunt is saying that a neurotypical man being interested in a person with a "mental deficit" is highly suspect and very inappropriate.
I was with a person on the spectrum for 5 years and that person never treated me like a romantic partner and equal. Instead I was treated like an object.
Then I met my current (we'll call him George) and reception was..mixed to say the least. But the worst of it came from my aunt. She tried to bribe me with a substantial amount of money to leave my partner, threatened to call my doctors and social services and tell them I was engaging in "inappropriate sexual...
I came across this website while trying to do some research on how to help the predicament I'm in and I'm hoping I can get some advice and insight! I am not on the spectrum, but I've been really encouraged by this forum that this is the right place to seek help.
About a year ago, I met a guy at the salon I've been going to for 6 years while he was helping my hair stylist. He was very friendly and chatty and I'm the type of person who tries to be kind to everyone. I own a pole fitness/dance studio which we started talking about when he was helping the stylist. It turned out that he was a dancer and I thought that maybe he could teach me a couple of stylistic things outside of my wheel house. We had maybe 2 dance sessions at my studio to learn some things and I started to pick up on that he might not be typical.
Not being typical didn't phase me. I have a special needs nephew, two family members with Asperger's and a mother who has always worked with special needs...
