    "Autistic" or "Person with Autism"?

    There is another view that says don't put me in a box and that there should not be labels. But I disagree. Labels identify a can of beans. Some people want to know what’s in the can first before they decide if they want it. It's because not all food is agreeable to every tastebud and so likewise...

    Naming your strengths

    Read my blog on Maslow’s hierarchy. I am autistic and I struggle with esteem which is defined by Maslow as being proud of your own skill acquisition such as excelling at a sport. Our lack of hand eye coordination makes sports harder. According to Maslow we have to first accomplish the level...

    Autistic Strengths/ The Best Things about Being Autistic

    I see how my five senses can both overstimulate me negatively, and have me in such awe of what our God has created. I see the good qualities of childlike faith that it brings out in me and the special relationship with God who is my friend when I have none. I see the potential for genius in...

    "Autistic" or "Person with Autism"?

    This is my opinion: Identity-first language says, “I am autistic.” Person-first language says, “I am a person who has autism.” I prefer identity-first language because it invites culture. Person-first language causes shame about one’s disability. Autism is not like an addiction to be...

    Identity-first language versus Person-first language

    Identity-first language says, “I am autistic.” Person-first language says, “I am a person who has autism.” I prefer identity-first language because it invites culture. Person-first language causes shame about one’s disability. Autism is not like an addiction to be shamefully recovered from. It...

    Describe your experience with crowds…

    I want to know what happens in your body when you are in a crowd. I tried to explain my experience of crowds with an analogy of a rollercoaster but how would you describe your experience of it? I’ll start: Tonight I went to the ladies conference and there were traveling stage lights and a loud...

    Maslow’s Hierarchy and Autism.

    My theory that you can go backwards and an example where cognition wasn’t fulfilled so the ones below it weren’t either. So first Adam had God. (Transcendence). Then God gave Adam a job as a gardener and a wife, Eve. (Self-actualization). It was their job to keep the garden beautiful...

    Maslow’s Hierarchy and Autism.

    Dude…does anyone see how you could go top down? I feel like I’m the only one making my own theory. And I also feel like no one so far is even paying attention to my theory…just arguing. Chill… here’s the pyramid and Maslow’s description of transcendence...

    Crowds…

    Tonight I went to the ladies conference and there were traveling stage lights and a loud speaker system and a very large crowd and I just kind of froze. I went into a trance. People kept asking me if I was ok and it was so embarrassing. It felt like being on a rollercoaster and wanting to puke...

    Maslow’s Hierarchy and Autism.

    I feel that some people focus on aesthetics and want a lot of money to create the perfect look for themselves or their home. Some people seek fame because they have a deep need for esteem and found their talents and honed them to get recognition. Some people focus on transcendence and seek to be...

    Tactile Superpowers

    I can sense aura colors and feel the vibe of a person with my heart field and know things about their personality. The sun lights up my chakras and I can feel energy being channeled through me. I feel the warmth of God like a whirlwind of light that picks my spirit up like sand. I can feel...

    Facial Expressions

    2-12-24 I didn’t know I couldn’t read facial expressions because I thought all there were was happy, sad, surprised and angry. Happy being turned up lips. Sad being turned down lips. Surprise being an open mouth. And angry being eyebrows down. I realized I didn’t understand when I was on the...

    MBTI (Meyers Briggs Personality)

    Take the keys to cognition test. It’s the backdoor because it goes by cognitive functions instead of being straightforward with the letters. http://www.keys2cognition.com/index.htm
