Also: I f*cking SWEAT too much. It's bound to my emotions, not temperature. And since I have OCD-ish monster lurning in mah head... Well, the vicious circles are vicious.



* I learned how to 'taste' the air around me, but that ability is soooo different from actual smeling; it produces different 'results' by showing me different things than if I were to smell my surroundings instead. And yes, I have an exceptional taste.

And my hearing is that of an ANIMAL really.


Asperger's is not a 'fake' autism. You may want to read this: http://www.nimh.nih.gov/health/topics/autism-spectrum-disorders-asd/index.shtml

To screen for mild ASD in older children, the doctor may rely on different screening instruments, such as:
Autism Spectrum Screening Questionnaire (ASSQ)
Australian Scale for Asperger's Syndrome (ASAS)
Childhood Asperger Syndrome Test (CAST).

ASD = Autism Spectrum Disorder

Eh? I never said anyone was lying. I was just saying what I had was the typical shit you'd expect from someone on the internet because what I have is alarmingly common these days. But sure, I'm a worthless piece of shit cunt that deserves to die so whatever I say is utter crap obviously.


"The typical shit you'd expect from someone on the internet. Anxiety, depression, and some form of autism." can easily be seen as a toxic comment. It pretty much screams "these kids lied and self diagnosed themselves." The "typical shit" doesn't help much. A better way to say this would have been:

"This is quite typical of the internet, many people have autism, depression or anxiety." That is much less hostile and can not be misconstrued as an attack on Autism, which yours still looks like.


Well whatever. I'm a fucking retarded piece of shit. So shoot me.

Rather not. I have no malice towards you. I just dislike when people shove off autism as a *fake* or *lesser* evil.

Yes, but it is so minor the doctor can't be 100% sure if it is ADD or Asperger. Who cares, it did not stop the military from approving my enlistment.

Ah, my bad. I have a cousin who will never be able to talk or live a normal life. That is also ASD. He has severe Autism. He actually 'forced' my aunt to open up an Autism School (allows her to teach autistic kids to better their life).

She once quoted "It is harder for a kid with severe ADD, ADHD or Asperger's to live a good life than it is for someone like my kid. They are out of place, know this, and people just look and think they are weird. These kids get isolated. When someone see's my son, they know he has issues, so they can treat him respectively. There is a reason why those with Asperger's have a high suicide rate..."

It is something I can agree with easily. I cant make friends, I cant socialize, and I tried to kill myself 3 times (failed too, obviously, thought rat poison and wine would be stronger lol). I gave up on that ending a while ago, but I still cant socialize, no matter how much therapy and all I go to. That is why I find Asperger's, severe ADHD and ADD to be just horrible. Also why I dislike people who label themselves as such to find themselves "hip". I actually had a friend like me succeed in killing himself due to the way he was treated. I was the only person from the school to go to his funeral. No one even cared...

I just cant find it 'fake'.

I do apologize for snapping at you though.

I have had mild Dyspraxia ever since I was born, being three months premature. You could say that due to being a learning difficulty, it is invisible. Indeed, many do not know or recognise that I have it until I tell them more about my disability and then certain issues I have such as lack of spatial awareness and coordination as well as the absence of a sense of time and the inability to read body language, expressions and social cues among others make more sense to them.

Does stuttering count? Idk why, but I followed my parents sense of speech where they speak fast in a different language. My dad stutters a lot, so I think I get it from him lol. But since I got a job, I was forced to communicate, but it REALLY helped me out and I can hold a conversation just perfectly. Couldn't be any more grateful with society.

I'm not sure if id call it a disability, but I have a severely damaged visual memory, I didn't notice it untill I realized I wasn't able to remember faces at all, then I started to notice that I couldn't remember much at all, everything was just a blur

Yup.

I've got social + anxiety, autism, dyslexia, depression and heaven knows a bunch of other stuff. It sucks when I want to make and keep friends around. I know I've gotten some looks and people questioning me because of this. Not to mention having to take meds day and night. Its hard to have people understand when they don't have this. I don't expect them too but I wish they wouldn't see disabilities as a problematic.

I am/was classified as 'special needs' when I as younger mostly with math (I still use my fingers for doing basic math! ) and I needed help with spelling a grammer. Even spell checkers get confused by my spelling! And ADD to. I could really related to Osaka in Azamanga Diaoh!

..andI have slight valve problem with one of my heart ventricles. It doesn't affect my day to day life any but I have to get checked out with my yearly checks up.
