Anyone with aspergers?Watch
I have big issues with my confidence and don't like to talk about it...
How do you deal with aspergers everyday?
What do you have a strong interest in?
I have strong interests in forensics mostly.
I have autism (diagnosed before the change) but I was 15 years 11 months so got basically no support then or as a child when I needed it.
I would always say to anyone that it's best to get tested. I can't say about weather to get a diagnosis or not because I don't know if you will or will not be diagnosed with anything. But if you're unsure and thinking about it then I would say you should because it's better to know if you do or don't than to always wonder. And, if you do the earlier the better. After I got diagnosed the college I went to after school failed to support me enough as I already applied and so did not get into support services from the very start. I failed there. I went to another college and got better support. It takes time, like years to get real change and life is still difficult for a while after being diagnosed but it is defiantly a good thing long term-and you have most of your life still ahead.
How do I deal with it everyday is quite difficult to answer. I like that I know I am different which I think helps me deal with it. I don't think about it every day though, I am how I am, I can't change it and thinking about it won't make anything different so there is no point in thinking about it every day.
I don't have 1 really strong interest or obsession in one specific thing as their is a general myth most people with Asperger's/Autism do. I do have strange interests for my age though-for example LEGO.
Hope some of this helps, If you have any other questions then ask.
Dealing with it everyday is quite difficult. I've only really got one friend who is aware of my problems.
To be honest I was tested for it as well and yes I qualify on the autistic spectrum but I would never seek to 'utilise' this as per Equality Act 2010 because AS doesn't impair you from doing anything and CSR (corporate social responsibility) concept is one enormous BS as many from the Square Mile have told me.
I disagree completely. My Autism doesn't just affect me socially and I need a lot of help. It affects everyone differently. Just because you've not needed to use the Equalities Act, doesn't mean anyone else has never needed to.
Perhaps your case is much more severe than mine.
It's a bit rubbish that they now clump Aspies and Autists together into one diagnosis these days.
I go through phases all the time. The longest phase was the band The Vamps which has happened 3 years, and still going now. I also have to ask people what they mean if they use words I dont understand, or if someone on the TV or radio or in a book says something I don't understand. Luckily my family and friends are amazing. They still treat me like the person I was before I was diagnosed.
