Default Re: Does anybody else here have Aspergers syndrome???

I see it one of two ways: I can go all "woe is me, other people will never understand me and I'll never understand them", which is true. Or I can say that the different way I see the world can offer me advantages. Are there days I would have taken a cure? In a heartbeat. You think I'm ok with the fact that there is a very good chance I'll never have a girlfriend? Hell no. But I'd still rather look at the glass as one quarter full. Not to mention, I've worked my ass off to improve my social skills. They still suck but I've learned that when I work my ass off I can find people who'll accept me. Admittedly, having 6 people you would ever have called friend in your life sucks. But you know what? I wouldn't trade my situation. I would never wish this on anyone, but you know what? That same condition is the reason I just get modern physics.

And you don't want speculated cases (mind those weren't mere speculation, but highly probable possibilities based on known AS researchers) fine. How about Satoshi Tajiri? He's the man who invented Pokemon, one of the most successful children's entertainment lines of modern history.

I see it this way. I can wallow in misery and self pity, or I can take advantage of the benefits from AS and say a big F U to the rest of the situation.

If you ever need to talk, you can PM me. I can't promise I'll solve your problem but I'll do my best to help.

as if i were wallowing in self pity. aside from this fucking bullshit i think i'm quite awesome. i needed a handicap else i would have been too awesome, so god or whoever or whatever it is that makes people gave me this shit.

i live by the day. i don't even like people much in the first place so i don't really care about having few friends. most are obnoxious little brats and intolerable dumbasses of the highest caliber. not being able to relate to the few you call dear is what sucks.

girlfriends are the least of your worries. i may not have one, but i have more time to do something actually worthwhile, like reading. besides i hear they nag a lot. if i want something nagging at me all day long i'll get a parrot.

my mom was like "hey you can always get an autistic chick, she'll understand you pretty well". i thought about it and i wouldn't want another me in the house. i'd kill her dead.

don't be so quick to attribute your qualities to AS. i may have been a literature whiz even without autism. you may have gotten physics well without it too. we won't know what we could have been without the condition.

you understand me better now?

lol ass burgers

asperger syndrome does not make a statistically significant contribution to intelligence. ergo, most people with asperger syndrome have regular intelligence.

so why does every person to ever claim asperger somehow has superior smarts? is this a way of trying to justify social inabilities? "hey i might be a real pain in the ass to socialise with but LOLOLOLOLOL I'M SMRTER"

maybe it's special snowflake syndrome.

how do you know that your perception is different from "neurotypicals"? newsflash, you don't. unless you can relate to others, in which case, you should do something with that diagnosis, it's much probably faulty.

neurotypicals and neuroatypicals, lol. what fucking dumb terms. i know a lot of butthurt "aspies" that make out neurotypical as some sort of insult.

newsflash #2 : stigmatising people with dumb epithets leads to fissuration of society. that's not good.

do we really need to be even more separated from each other? this isn't guild wars.

This is what I've heard from the T.V.

People with this Disorders have bad Social skills and have a bad time to communicate(understanding one another). Also, they are not able to concentrate on more than two things at the same time i.e Multitasking.

But they have an exceptional Intelligence. Especially in the field of Mathematics, Science and Commerce. They are also outstanding in expressing in written form and have a strong lingual skills, but they are not so good in verbal communication.

Many of you already know this and not a big thing, but a something I wanted say.

Now if you what you are saying is true, then I guess I have this syndrome too. I am excellent, sometimes TOO excellent in my written communication form. All the time in all my school years, all my English teachers absolutely loved my writing assignments that I handed in. However, I suck at verbal face-to-face communication. And however again, I am very good at multitasking, so I do not know where multitasking comes in? But yeah, then I guess I have this syndrome.

While a lot of what was said was accurate, it is far from a full picture. Also, each case presents itself differently. The only way you can have any real idea is to be checked out by a trained professional. You may also want to see the DSM-IV to see what the doctor is going to use to base his decision.

If you ever need to talk, you can PM me. I can't promise I'll solve your problem but I'll do my best to help.

Don't self diagnose.

The only person who can diagnose you with this condition, is a professional trained in Aspergers.

Just because you have traits does not mean you have the condition.

I have Autism the PDD variety (Pervasive Developmental Disorder). Diagnosed when I was young. I wish I was normal... friends think I am dumb ass, parents almost have split up because of me. I am a nuisance to every living thing around me even myself. On top of that my parents don't think I am going to go any where and have threatened to kick me out of their house multiple times, but I think my dad just pities me while my mom is just getting tired of this crap. I am new to this forum, so sorry if I did something wrong... posting this here. I don't have much experience in forums.

PDD-NOS?

Can I ask exactly what that means in your case? I doubt things are as bad as you say, but I know the days when you feel that way. When you'd give everything you had to be just like everybody else. I'm of the opinion that there is never a bad without the good. Even if all the bad does is make you realize how good the good is.

Don't doubt yourself. Be bold. And welcome to VT.

If you ever need to talk, you can PM me. I can't promise I'll solve your problem but I'll do my best to help.

Aspergers is can be difficult for me. I don't always understand jokes and I have trouble with small talk. I also have trouble talking in groups and it makes me nervous when I see people gathered around talking because my mind is blank.

I have Non verbal learning disorder, which is close to aspergers. It's annoying with all the social issues. But it's also a good thing because it helps me know that I'm unique and completely different from everyone else. This probably didn't help in the slightest but it felt good saying it
