My psychiatrist says I have Aspergers. No one has ever told me this before. I am 21 years old.
Here I've been calling people autists left and right when in fact I am the autist! It's pretty amazing how stupid I am, not to have figured it out on my own.
How many of you guys actually have this condition? Can we talk?
I wouldn't say I'm shocked. Just a little surprised. My psych said I am very high functioning and that ADHD is also an issue I need to deal with. So I'm taking a new pill called Strattera, who knows if it will work.
I second this question
Obviously the dilemma is he has no tee pee for his poo poo, so it couldn't be a cleaning sponge. Perhaps it is a baked delectable to be enjoyed whilst on the porcelain throne hmm?
everyone here is either severely narcissistic or has aspergers
get in line mate
Just curious, what made you and OP go the psychiatrist in the first place? How could they tell you had it? Is it only sessions of questioning or do they follow you around in everyday life etc?
I have realized that there was something wrong with me since I was around 16.
I had just enough insight to understand that my behavior was wrong, but not enough to pinpoint what those things were.
Now at the age of 26, I am slowly coming to accept that I am an undiagnosed sperg.
Of all the fancy mental illnesses, I had to have the least attractive one to women.
I am 35 and I have it and was diagnosed almost 20 years ago
pluses: very orderly, can remember things very well
minuses: speak in a monotone, have no idea what to say to people, want to be alone most of the time, can't figure out girls, obsess with certain things, fall in love instantly with any girl who shows you attention, obsessive thoughts, say repetitive things, can't show affection.
spergie here, on the autismbux, in subsidized housing living alone
I didn't start going to therapy until my dad offered to help me get a job. I basically stayed in therapy and followed it into a housing program, etc.
The key parts I'm aware of about myself is that I absolutely avoid anything involving change or stress in daily life and I can't read people for shit. I read a few biographies of the High Function Autist like Temple Grandin and that KISS band special effects guy.
They basically had the same thinking process as me. It was weird to read someone having the same thoughts and emotions at certain points in their life as I did, the same struggles, and eventually adapting past it to get job and stuff.
I have no friends.
Its not that I didn't make any, I just didn't keep them. I feel safer and more comfortable alone, and I feel great after getting off work and getting to not be around people anymore.
I only work 4 hours a week too.
I'm pretty much a turtle in every sense.
But from my experience with other autistic people, they are usually hard to be around.
>feeling guilty about calling people here autistic or calling literal autists out when you only have aspergers
Dude. You can probably point out a lot of behaviours even in neurotypicals that are illogical and autistic. Many on 4chan are a perfect example. I'm a sperg and I already can make that kind of judgement in real life.
Also, you don't have the cognitive retardation or language issues that these other autists do, so why feel guilty about micking on them? Be glad you have that privilege and that you pass as a person with normal to above average intelligence.
>Also, you don't have the cognitive retardation or language issues that these other autists do, so why feel guilty about micking on them?
Are you sure about that? You've been a fucking autist all along, after all.
>Here I've been calling people autists left and right when in fact I am the autist!
I read a few comments by people on a thread about mushrooms/lsd and quite a few of them said that psychedelics managed to 'cure' them of their autism.
I don't know how true this is but having taken shrooms myself I can attest to the fact that it definitely makes you view the world from an entirely different perspective. Perhaps it can help some of your autists see what it is you're doing wrong.
Disclaimer: this may not work and might be purely anecdotal but it's worth a shot.
I was diagnosed last year too, same with my brother who's almost 30 now.
I guess you get used to it, I always knew I was weird and shit at socialising so being diagnosed was no suprise to me, i'm still the awkward sperg I was before.
I think about suicide more often now though, it's almost like being a retard gives me an excuse to do it.
I know that feeling man. I only found out when a girl with aspergers at work asked me if I had it and I was pretty confused at first till I asked my mother on the phone and she gave me a non-commital answer about being on the spectrum as well.
still feels weird, part of me is glad (at least I had a reason why I was so fucking weird) but part of me has now just completey given up on wanting a normal life now.
>calls me an autist in angry response to my truthful post
>thinks he can look normal but puting "lol" at the beginning to hide his full autistic butthurt
I'm sorry I upset your autistic ass with the truth, my mentally challenged friend.
You know you're making these autists happy by forcing on the idea that aspergers is the same thing as autism.
You could have kept it the other way so they could forever remain alienated and persecuted in their societal inferiority, while us aspies are doing our job of being part of society like every other normal person. That way the autistic retards who can't adapt to society can die off!
Do you actually want to defend these idiots because you yourself are pathetically in the same helpless position of self unsuccessfulness? Like, you don't even have an excuse too, don't you? :)
This is a small reminder to the OP that a psych will generally tell you that up have a disorder since they make nothing diagnosing people healthy.
Antisocial or introverted? Avoidant personality disorder.
Can't hold a job or have a gf? Aspergers.
Acting out when feeling strong emotion? It's not venting, its bipolar disorder.
My Mum told me the other day that she knew that I was super autistic when i was young, but im not as bad now. She told me that she didnt get me diagnosed as it could effect my employment/insurance if I declared it on my records.
Never really saw myself as autistic but thinking of the things I used to do when I was younger, it seems to add up
one of the assholes i take care of at work has aspergers. everyone hates him. he is impossible to talk to. when he doesnt want anything (i.e. a ride to the bookstore) he will be nice to you, but if he doesnt want anything that day, he wont shower, wont clean his disgusting ass apartment with food all over the table and floor and black stains all over the floor, and will flat out tell you that hes not going to do any of these things cause he doesnt want anything. that is, he does not give a shit about doing anything cause youre supposed to, its all about transactions between him and others.
he also likes being a dick in every single conversation. no matter how wrong he is about something, he is going to argue with you about it and find something else to whine about how you offended him when he and you both know its bullshit, hes just trying to be difficult.
he also always fakes illnesses for attention. a few weeks ago he pretended he had a leg injury to get out of his retard sports practice. he pretend started to fall in front of the doctor cus we had to take him in. the next dayhe pretended it got worse and called in his enabling bitch mom who basically tried to force me to pick him up and carry him into the toilet. i refused and said this isnt a hospital, if he was hurting that bad he'd have to call an ambulance. she asked for a literal piss jug and i said i could not legally do that for him. the mom chickened out cus an ambulance aint free and left, then he called me by phone again telling me he had to pee. i tried to convince him to get up but he wouldnt so he called the ambulance, two trucks and 8 paramedics arrived (there goes everyones tax dollars), and they try to convince him to call his family to take him into the hospital cause they can tell he is bullshitting. he abslutely refuses so they take him away for the day. the mom brings him back later that day and all he had according to the xrays was a bit of soreness, the doc gave him soem painkillers (cont.)
but the mom gave him her own walker, so the next few days hes walking all over with his walker, telling people how injured he is. he also tried to make me cook dinner for him and bring him his meds to his apartment, i tell him hes perfectly fine cause hes got his walker. the week after his pretend illness was he couldnt talk, so hed use a notebook to write what he wanted to say. he seriously tried to get in an argument with me by writing down everything he wanted to say.
he also enjoys sitting on the shitter for literally hours. its like his safe haven, so he always smells of ass. he no longer works with certain women cus hes sexually aggressive to women and says nasty shit then will argue with them that he didnt say anything rude but try to ask them why what he said was rude. i dont think anyone would mourn if he got hit by a car.
>because you yourself are pathetically in the same helpless position of self unsuccessfulness?
>Like, you don't even have an excuse too, don't you? :)
Do you realize how bizarre your English sounds?
I don't get it man. You know you're a sperg. That means you know for a fact that you're a horrible judge of people, but here you are, trying to tell people about themselves over the Internet.
I think it's time you went back to le rebbit.
Why don't you browse a place where normalfags like yourself can bitch about your superiority?
Like, you're a bit mental but, you have a very similar perspective to those fools. You should go now...
was he autistic, i ask?
