>>25889753 so if any response whatsoever has absolutely no impact on your opinion....why even sharing your thoughts on an board? and the bigger question is... why did you you came back to see if somebody responded? faggot
>>25889778 It's not that no response will change my mind, its that your responses specifically are an orgy of evidence of you being an insecure autist who can't face facts. From the way you capitalize nothing, to your horrid misuse of ellipsis, to your RANDOM use of ALL CAPS, even the general structure of your sentences all point to a general inability to connect to the outside world.
>tl;dr: Saying "I'm not autistic" won't convince anyone of that point if everything else you say contradicts that point.
>>25889349 >not understanding that Autism SPECTRUM Disorder is a SPECTRUM. >claims to work with people with disabilities. >le Autism is only for Intellectually Disabled mey mey Clearly you have never heard of people with Asperger's Syndrome/High Functioning Autism or as the DSM5 refers to it "ASD Level 1" I actually have Autism. I have been diagnosed. I was even in Special Ed when I was in school. This is either bait or you are a complete fucking idiot.
>>25890032 I never said that everyone here is on the spectrum or even that we make up a large portion of this board. What I was disputing was you statement that No One here is Autistic. >"NOBODY of YOU is autistic." That is just blatantly not true.
>>25890091 i dont give a shit! can you imagine how angry i am reading every fucking day that some faggot calls himself autistic like its a meme?
i have seen autists starring at other people who are in deep pain or crying. just starring. doing nothing. i have seen autist sitting in a corner counting days for 5 hours. i have seen autists who tried to hold hands with me, but only if he wanted to. if i would have touched him he would have screamed like he is out of his mind. i know there is a huge spectrum of autism.
but it just makes me angry if somebody says: "i am 18 and i cant talk to girls. i have autism"
i know there is a huge spectrum, but chances are very high you are just insecure instead of having a real serious "illness"
>>25890137 First off, "i dont give a shit!" what you've "seen" while working. You Are Neurotypical. You do not actually know what it is like to be Autistic.
"i know there is a huge spectrum, but chances are very high you are just insecure instead of having a real serious "illness"" I have been officially Diagnosed. I had an IEP and was in Special Education when I was in school. So, I do actually have Autism.
I'll assume you've actually worked with handicapped people and treat you like an authority on this.
I'm a 22-year-old who suspects that he has the sperg. 1. Do you think it's worth it to actually get diagnosed, or is there no point? and 2. Would you be willing to e-diagnose me?
>have a bouncy walk that centers on my toes; it gets pointed out a lot >don't like eye contact, tend to either look someplace else or at some other part of a person's body while speaking >slight lisp, some difficulty with volume control >penchant for rambling/talking at people ad infinitum about my interests; friends when I was a kid would basically take turns ranting at each other about vidya or books or trivia >penchant for categorizing/organizing information and trivia (science, history, etc.) >poor motor control; handwriting is like a 4-year-old's, rather clumsy, bump into things a lot, took forever to learn how to do stuff like tie shoes, ride a bike, drive, hold utensils, etc. >to this day, can't eat without making a mess >often have difficulty entering or initiating a conversation because I don't know what it would be appropriate to say or how to time it >extreme hypersensitivity to touch; rip all the tags off my clothes, go out of my way to avoid being hugged or patted, have been wearing socks inside-out since I was a toddler and used to cut the seams off, sometimes get floored by the fabric of my own clothes, HATE delicate touch (stroking, tracing, brushing, light pressure, etc.) >extreme hypersensitivity to sound; have certain sounds that just make me want to throw a fit, like whistling or tapping, loud and high-pitched noises only seem to startle me and not my classmates, often have to wear earplugs or ear protection just to go to the cafeteria >CONSTANT pacing, even in a small space, to the extent that it's one of the first things people notice about me >constantly shake one leg, violently, particularly when I'm nervous (CONT)
>>25890248 (CONT) >have a penchant for picking at my lips, toenails, scabs, zits, etc., biting my nails, popping my joints a lot, grinding my teeth, and hitting myself lightly on the head, arm, or thigh >catch myself talking to myself and repeating little phrases and mantras a lot >sound-tactile synesthesia, grapheme-color synesthesia, ticker-tape synesthesia (spelling bees ftw), whatever the term for thinking of math and language spatially is >still like to spin in circles >serious issues keeping on top of organization and hygiene, need to make lists for myself >collect coins, knives >obsessed with children's cartoons to this day, to the extent that I can match hype with my 9-year-old cousin and largely have the same interests as her >hordes of people telling me I'm "different" or "unique" throughout my life, which I'm pretty sure just means autistic
I mean, I'm functional, but the signs seem to be pretty obvious.
>>25889349 Sorry to say, I've been diagnosed by one of the top psychotherapists in my country. Explains my whole life. Never fit in, everyone including my own family thinks I'm weird. Beautiful women would hit on me and you could count the seconds till I fuck it up. It's like my imagination takes over the conversation and the perfect scenario I see in my head takes over. I've spent almost my entire life alone. Nowadays, I like to be alone.
>>25890473 I don't mind you thinking it's funny, I do sometimes, but it's a little tragic too! I was making out with this 10/10 girl my friend put me together with. I hardly opened my mouth. Next time I saw her, I kept squeezing her hand harder and harder, and I'm a pretty big guy. I honestly don't know why I was doing it. I couldn't stop. I was laughing, but felt like crying at the same time. She finally pulled her hand away and called me an asshole. Dudes in the bar were looking like they were gonna jump me.
>>25890558 if the organizations I've encountered are any indication, Op is most likely fresh off the plane from Africa and has no qualifications in this field except for work experience and some minimal on the job training. But, apparently in OP's mind, this makes him the top expert on ASD in the world. It also gives him the right to wage moral jihad from his moral high horse.
>>25890821 I've encountered people like this before, they have no official schooling, minimal training, and only ever worked with people on the extremely low functioning end of the spectrum. They then somehow think that Everyone with Autism must be low functioning.
>>25890966 no maybe i go to that place where everybody claims to be a virgin becaus they are manlets... and tell them that they are virgins because they fucked up. and it has nothing to do with their hight
ASD is more common than you'd think, especially on 4chan, and especiallier on [r9k]. As a mental health worker you should understand mental health is a spectrum. I'm asd:nos, high functioning special snowflake edition. I was certified retarded at 14 by psychologist and psychiatrist with a handful of comorbid bullshits like gad, adhd, and possibly bipolar, not officially dx'd on the last one, I guess they felt bad for me, but fuck it eat these pills for it off label anyway but not really wink wink.
I'm still fucking retarded, I just happen to be good at math and computers and nothing else. If it is a misdiagnosis it doesn't make me any less retarded. I have just enough self awareness to cringe and hate myself after I sperg out and throw a tantrum or spill spaghetti all over the place.
Also fuck Sheldon and big reddit theory. It's a show about making fun of autists but oh wait not really see they have gfs now so it's OK to laugh at the retards. It feels bad and it's unfair. Why don't we just do blackface on TV? It's the same level of insensitivity to niggers as it is to those who aren't neurotypical.
>>25891242 >"reasons that are just made up excuses" I have been officially diagnosed with ASD and various Learning Disabilities. I was in Special Education in school and had an IEP. If you think that you some how are better able to judge what conditions I do or do not have (dispite the fact that you have no formal education and have never met me, nor do you know anything about me or my behavior) than a series of mental health professionals who have PHDs in the field and who did actual testing on me, then you are completely delusional. Also, making diagnosis without proper education and certification is considered practicing medicine without a license.
>"if you come to a place were almost everybody claims to have autism...its not unlikely that somebody says: fuck off you dont.... and that guy is me" So, as I said earlier, you're next you're going to go over to Wrong Planet and tell them they are full of shit and to go fuck themselves? You are So full of your self and ignorant on the subject on which you speak.
