I personally dislike anyone who tries to play those type of cards.


have you ever had a disability? if not then you need to stfu


A learning disability, ADHD, but of course that pales in comparison to other disabilities. Why can't you learn to not be a crybaby bitch on the internet? Silly you.


Pretty much this. The irony in it all is people like Bill Gates who have some degree of autism did so much for the world. Yet generally, people with autism are considered "stupid" right off the bat.

Telling people how my mum committed suicide usually gets me what I want.

It doesn't matter to me if you slave away or laze away. I think beyond these things, and it does not matter who you are if you're unlikely to win any sympathy vote from me. I don't mind consulting someone in a way that pretends to show a level of understanding towards their predicament but they have to be worth it. A lot of people fail to think beyond themselves no matter how much effort you put in. I wecome all ideas that make life easier because that's the way life should be lived. For example, a partially blind person has a doctor visit them at their house for a check-up instead of going to a hospital. A different example, a doctor has computer to help give them suggestions on what a certain person could be suffering from after assessing their symptoms and diseases in their family history. The doctor might miss something but that computer will help overcome those things. Therefore, I think that you're either going to be part of the world that's easier to navigate by finding out easier ways to deal with your disabilities or you're going to do nothing about it.

I'm a person with a mental disability and a whole lot of medical problems, but I pick myself up and move forward. I am a IT Specialist and I am quite good at the position. Many people cannot do what I do, but last week I was just in the hospital because of one of my medical conditions. They had to pump my stomach and bowels out through my nose. I know that sounds disgusting but it is how they deal with one of my conditions when it gets bad. I look at it this way. Shit happens and move on with your life. Both of my conditions can kill me quite quick. Funny thing is my mental disability, which is not as bad anymore because of my other conditions being treated, is not what puts me in the hospital and is not what could kill me. It is only what makes it harder for me to hold down a job over extended periods of time. I do not expect anything from anybody but I get everything in return. Actually I try to show my gratitude for the help I am getting by helping others that have problems and I am not talking about only people with disabilities. If I die tomorrow, then I can die with a smile on my face and that is how I want to go out. In all reality I feel I put too much of a burden on society because of how much my treatment costs. I have in the past felt like ending it all, however that is too easy and that would not be what everybody would want and that deep down is not what I want. How could I pay back my debt? My answer is to move forward, treat others with respect, and get stronger. This is something we can all follow. Live life to the fullest when we have the chance to, since our light can flicker out quite quick.


So I say cheers and happy anime watching to you all.

Anybody know of a good new anime that is like Naruto or Bleach and that is funny?


Awesome story! Wish you happiness and good blessings. I would suggest "Food Wars!" Its on this site.

At least you're trying to stay positive about it, a lot of people would give up if placed in those situations.



Yeah well there was a time where I felt like giving up, but I then thought about what people in my life would want for me and what I want for me. Putting yourself though more crap is not worth the trouble. Giving up is not worth the trouble. It makes your life worse in the end and I personally would rather go out doing something meaningful with my life. We in many ways create our own destiny and it is up to us to choose the path we take.

I feel for people that do not have as much of a choice though, since there are many people that are traded like property and sexually abused. People that are in the middle of a war where there is no way out. There are many that have very little choice in their situation and those are the people that I feel for the most.

It's worse when they use past successes to excuse their present state of laziness and stagnation.

To be fair with how hard it is to get by in life with a disability can you really blame people for giving up.

I know i personally do give up at times (hence why i'm not studying at the moment) because it's impossible to get a job due to my disability.

That being said gotta remain positive i guess but you can't blame someone who has tried hard all there life and struggled for giving up because we all have our limits.


For myself i don't want to try to get a job or study again not for the next few years atleast i need a break from life

in the end people need there down time...it just matters if your willing to get back up again or not.

Trust me living with Aspergers , OCD , Depression (on and off) , Severe Anxiety and maybe a personality disorder (?) is not fun and makes you give up at times...still sometimes to go foward you need to take a few steps back.

Pretty sure "Right now, I'm at a weird point in time where mental and light physical abuse interests me, whenever people degrade me or insult me(or attempt too), it makes me actually be around them more. Derogatory names like "whore" "slut" "chink" or just openly misogynist men are of interest to me." is called being a masochist. You and Tiara from Fairy Fencer F or Sarutobi from Gintama would get along great.

As for being on topic. I have accepted I have a disability. What pisses me off and why I bring it up is the average American is so ignorant when it comes to Austim. Someone in my class found out and first thing he did was give me his name, stick out his hand... nice and normal... Then he said "Now grab my hand and move it up and down. That is called shaking." It wasn't even out of malice. He was just that ignorant. And many people are incredibly ignorant about ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder).

If someone says I am weird. My usual response is... "Ye, I am autistic. I have a hard time reading facial expressions, looking at your eyes or having a conversation that isn't surrounding me." That shuts them up and they actually manage to be a bit kinder, or more brutal depending on the person. I have had people actually try to be kind and work around that (My three friends I have right now). Then there are the people who will literally spit in your face (some assholes from middle school).

I can also say my condition will make me really pissy if I get criticized in a cruel manner. "You suck, you need to do this to get better." or they don't pay attention and correct me on something I was doing correctly already. Now if they give me advice like "Oh, if you try this, it works so much better!' I can take it. I do think that applies to most people, however it is a bit stronger of an impuse for me. I will tell somone if they ask why I went ballistic... Yea, I have autism. You gave "advice" in an incorrect manner and really pissed me off. Seriously.. I have choked someone out for that shit -.- And now I am remembering that weasel -.- Ima end rant here. #Salt

Look up OCPD (Obsessive Compulsive Personality Disorder). It is 100% different from OCD. OCD means you have to do something like wash your hands 5 times before leaving a room or something. You don't seem like that type. OCPD is when you are obsessed with rules, orders and control.

Let me rephrase this better. OCD thoughts are unwanted. OCPD means you think your thoughts are correct. Here is a list of other OCPD signs:
•Over-devotion to work (I will end up working myself to death)
•Not being able to throw things away, even when the objects have no value (My red blanket. I WILL BE HELLBENT BEFORE I THROW THIS AWAY!)
•Lack of flexibility (I am as flexible as a thrust fault... hehehe)
•Lack of generosity (Doesn't apply to me)
•Not wanting to allow other people to do things (You are not touching my alcohol, or you will loose a hand)
•Not willing to show affection (22 years old, 5 months of that dating. Forever Single FTW!)
•Preoccupation with details, rules, and lists (Rules are love, rules are life!)

Source: https://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/ency/article/000942.htm

I do suggest checking this out. Different meds for OCD and OCPD. If you have the correct meds, this part can be mostly eliminated. Though no medicine is a cure all for this.

I was told I was autistic in high school by my guidance counselor. Now I am attempting to get into an intermediate algebra(MAT-114) completed world literature lv 2(ENG-200/B+) and have two A's in intro to PHI(105) and PHI-ethics(105) all done in College. All without ever visiting a tutor.

Sometimes I think people get told they have disabilities simple because people like me would refuse to do anything in school.

So I agree, it's not a good excuse for not trying.


Actually, (high functioning) autistic students generally do well in school. I was a 4.3 (out of 4.0, I had 22 hours of College credit when I graduated). While my grades droped in Writing, my obsession with reading and science led to near perfect scores in everything other than the cursed English language. I HATE THIS DAMN LANGUAGE.

Now, I can say University is kicking my ass due to never having to had study a day in my life. I am still doing fine, but nowhere near where I could be performing.

The difference between high and low functioning is someone like my cousin and I. My cousin will never be able to talk, hold a job, get a wife or kids. He is fucked for life. I on the other hand am just the weird kid that has weird tendencies. Something my aunt said (she specializes in Autism thanks to her son) is that "When people see my son, they will know that he is ill. They will treat him with respect. It is worse for your son. He will be seen as weird, but not ill. This will make him a social outcast and leading to a lot of pain." I can say I am an outcast, but I do well in school. Fuck people when I can have my own apartment with a badass sound system, a Stingray, god tier gaming equipment and a mini-bar with a barista (kidding about this one).

I can understand that well. One thing that really PISSES ME OFF is when someone says "Oh, I am so OCD/ADHD/ADD." ARGH. Seriously... it changes your entire fucking life. Don't say it to sound hip =/
