How have you learned to accept you autism.?
I have grown up hating certian things i did and then other things i did and could not control. sensory issues cause me to be in sensory pain almost 24 7 to the point i would get in fights to get beat up so i would stop hurting in my head. i never understoof what was wrong i just knew that it was horrible and i hated it. iv recently learned im autistic and now the ''things'' i hate are supose to be a part of who i am. i see the first therapist i want to seek help from next week but how have otherr people learn to accept themselves and their limitations. also if you too hate your autism have you found anything you liked about it?ok iv looked around writing sounds very good. thank you
Do I have autism?????
I'm 17 and female. I'm socially awkward. I have been told that I look awkward when I walk. I don't participate in group conversations I have been told I am " out of the loop" when it comes to being social. I have " social exhaustion" , I am an anarchist and I don't believe in going to school work. I don't like having to go to school everyday, I want a break, so I dropped out. In social situations, I feel very uncomfortable. Very. I constantly think people are judging me, laughing at me, pointing at me, talking about me. I also have a very hard time following simple instuctions. Especially math. I have to have something repeated to me a couple of times for me to understand it. I am alone, I am too scared to talk to people. I always feel like I am an outcast. I have a higher tesosterone than a normal teenage girl should. I am overly sensitive and take a lot of offence when people insult my image. I get instrusive thoughts about going on a shooting spree and I have since I was 14 . I lack compassion and I don't know how to comfort people. I laugh at things that aren't funny. Oh and I also have a deepish voice for a woman, And apparently I have an accent. I've been asked what country I am from when I haven't even gone overseas. I feel like there is something wrong with me, but I cannot pinpoint it. It makes me feel sooooooo different to everyone in the whole world.

I'm diagnosed with autism... but still a bit concerned?
I was diagnosed with high functioning autism one time... I have a crapload of the symptoms, and I experience a few of the daily life situations in most individuals who have it social isolation, overload of noises and everyone talking at once.. that kind of thing ..... but, I'm still concerned on whether it's actually autism or not even though I'm almost sure it is ..I'm concerned because 1 I have some symptoms that aren't any of the ones of autism 2 There are other disorders with similar symptoms to autism 3 Most people who have it are maleI was diagnosed by a professional... So is there more of a chance that I have it then don't?I was worrying all day because I WANT TO HAVE IT I knew about my diagnosis for about a year now, and I'm proud of it..but I started worrying this week... could my worry problems have anything to do with meds?? I take amphetamine salts and sertraline, but stopped taking the sertraline a while back... I took 2 capsules of amphetamine a day for days even though I'm suppose to take 1 a day .. but today I took 1 capsule and 1 sertraline first time I took a sertraline in a while Do you think the way I took my meds could of triggered my worry problems due to amount and withdrawal??
Could I have some form of autism........?
Hi, ok so first of all I am 21. I am wondering if I could have a type of autism. I know people on the internet can not diagnose me but they may be able to give me an idea if the symptoms I describe could be signs, if so I may address my doctor. Some of the problems are I was a very quiet baby who rarely cried. Very shy as a child, often hid behind my mother if we talked to strangers outside or pretended to be asleep if they came to our house. I have never had a boyfriend or come even close. Have very few 'friends' who I usually don't see often and almost never go out to socialise. Was basically a loner in school, didn't really know how to make friends and the people I do talk to then and now I hardly know at all. Am not comfortable talking to others on the phone. Have trouble when talking to most people face to face getting my point across understood even though I know exactly what I want to say or ask. Time every day exactly and always recheck to know exactly what I will do and at what time, I don't like to deviate from my plan. I talk to my mother a lot and have always been close to her but am awkward at speaking to my father or other family members. I was depressed for roughly two years but have been better for close to a year now. I did well in school college but have always been behind at other things eg. showering myself, tying shoelaces, being able to put the parting in my hair and so on. I feel pretty unconnected to the world. I don't watch the news, don't know who is in government, names of famous people and so on. Tend to get upset easily but rarely angry.Sorry this was so long but could these be signs of autism or something else?Thank you in advance.
Has anyone ever helped their child overcome autism?
My two year old son was recently diagnosed with Autisim and I'm trying to set up different therapies for him. The only signs I have noticed are repetitive behavior like opening and closing of the doors, light switches things like that and he doesn't answer to his name. He has some tantrums but they started when he was 18 months and they are ongoing until now but they are brief. My question is has anyone ever helped their child overcome autism?He only shows those signs of autism I listed above, nothing else like sensitivity to light, sound, and he loves playing with everyone who comes over and tries interacting with others but doesn't quite know how.
Planing to move to Jersey? How are the doctors there for autism kids?
It would be my two kids my husband and I ? were planing to go around old bridge but i wanna see how are docors and school with autism kids
I think I may have some sort of autism.?
I would like to see a doctor over this question but I'm a little nervous about how my family will react and don't want to cause any concern until I'm somewhat certain. I am very clumsy. Often times when given a simple task I find it very difficult to complete the task in a timely manner. I usually need to be walked through instructions step by step and if the situation varies even slightly from what is explained to me i won't be able to continue on. I'm not very obsessive but I do find that I'll gain interest in particular things and will focus my mental energy on one thing at a time for a few days or weeks and then burn out on it and no longer find interest in it. I'm not good at making new friends and if I'm in a group of people I usually keep to myself not because I'm shy but because I become so absorbed in other peoples conversations yet have nothing to contribute. Even when trying to talk about something that is very simple with my mother my emotions seem to over come me and I usually am to the point of tears after a conversation about how I had a little difficulty with something at school or a slight frustration during yard work. I have strange habits that may just be normal but I feel like I might as well put it in here. I feel like if someone gives me orders, no matter who they are or if they are my subordinate, I must follow through with their command which concerns me and has hindered me in dating relationships as sometimes my partner will take advantage of me, or sometimes my little brother will convince me to do his chores and mine yet when I ask him for help he can easily brush me off saying it's my responsibility. Maybe I'm just over reacting to my adolescent mind developing or perhaps I'm just socially akward, but I'd like to know if I have a mental disorder, if it would even change anything. Thanks.

Can autism even high functioning cause incontinence?
I have an older cousin who is very intelligent but wears diapers. My aunt says that it is because he has autism. This made me curious, so I looked online and found a list of traits for ASD. I was shocked to see that there were quite a few physical traits that went along with the mental disability. Seizure activity, insomnia, and food allergies are some of the other physical traits packaged with autism. What I want to know is it normal for people with high functioning autism, who work and go to school, to have incontinence? I always thought it was an issue with the mental functionality of the particular autistic patient and not an actual physical problem. If it is a physical issue that causes the incontinence then explain to me why even high functioning individuals still have these physical conditions? Like is it genetic or something?
My friend has A.D.D. and Autism?
I was talking to my mom about my friend anthony and she said its nice that im friends with him. I asked why he has other friends too, she said only a few. She told me he had ADD and autism witch i kinda knew but not positive. He hangs out with my friends brother who is 7 i thought this was strange since he was what i was told " 13" he was never straight forward about his age and when we talked about it he seemed shy. i was also told he had social issues. So my mom told me he was taking medications for his disabilities and he was really 15. She said he is in the 8th grade because he is meanly 12. He is always a few years behind mentally. Witch was confusing to me because of my knowing about his age i thought he was 12,13, or 14. I was asking this question because im wondering what dose these disabilities do to him. and also because i have a crush on him. I dont know if we become a couple and break up what that can do to him mentally. should i get involved,.I also have OCD and mental problems like panic attacks and i talk to myself and am on the verge of anorexia so i can feel what its like to have these issues but i dont need meds like my problems arent as bad

Have a question that is about a kid with Autism ?
Ok so I am interested in the medical field I especially like cardiology and learning about people hwo are I should say kinda mentally handicap like for example people who have autism or that are autistic. So anyway back to my question there is this kid in my math class hwo has autism and yes I am in learning support classes because I have ADHD. Anyway when I sometimes observe his actions I see that he sometimes squeezes his hands and rubs them and it also looks like he is bitting his bottom lip and sometimes it looks like he is bitting it really hard also closing his eyes and it makes it look like he is doing something really hard but it's kinda hard to explain. I'm not sure if he's thinking really hard about something or I have no idea I've never seen this type of behavior before wit autistic people. I've seen them look around the room but I know even though it looks like they are not paying attention I know they are actually listening. But anyway i have never seen any autistic kid do what he does is he thinking really hard or doing something else idk please comment back appropriately and thank you Noah
