    This is so me… Gosh, I hope my psychologist realizes this soon. We’re dealing with this issues right now, actually. This, ADHD and OCD. Something’s wrong. We’ll figure it out.

    @AnElephantThatPaints Same here, i trust NO ONE and I question everything. I’m still VERY careful at what i’m saying, but since i heard David Icke saying that worrying about what others think about you is the biggest mind prison ever created, I don’t give a flying fuck what others thing or say about me and i had a total revelation since.

    There are a lot of medications out there to help with paranoia and anxiety but none work universally (our brains are all too unique for any drugs to uniformly perform neurological tasks across the board) and none can cure Asperger’s. Our brains are simply wired differently and that is not the sort of thing that can easily be “fixed”.

  6. CodexAlimentarius1 says:

    Zeolite powder cures asperger’s syndrome, or atleast the paranoia and severe social anxiety.

    Well done. Great documentary.

  8. ernasmulders says:

    I think it would a good idea to read books about Asperger. There are books especially written for the ones who have Asperger. If you understand ‘the other’ world then it becomes easier to fit in and undestand other people more and better. Your wife should read books about ‘living with a partnet who has Asperger. It’s not such a big thing to understand, but you have to learn what it’s all about.
    You are very special you know, havings Asperger. These are the most beautiful people in the world.

  9. AnElephantThatPaints says:

    I’m glad I’ve never felt the stress to have to act “normal”, except when my mother was around insisting that I do so. I was a rebellious kid who chose to express herself anyway, getting bullied intensely and having been misunderstood by my teachers. In spite of everything that happened, i do not regret my crazy behavior at all. I let out all of my anger, and now that I’ve met more accepting kids, my sanity has been restored. Researching AS has helped a lot, too.

  10. AnElephantThatPaints says:

    Having a pessimistic view of you disability certainly adds to your struggle. This is not a healthy mentality to wish you were born a different way. You can still enjoy life, make friends, and release your anxiety. Don’t be afraid to ask for help.

  11. AnElephantThatPaints says:

    look, a lot of us can be brutally honest.I learned to be careful about what I said to other people, because I’ve ben bullied so much as a kid. I didn’t want to make others feel the way I did, especially since it isn’t in my intention.

  12. AnElephantThatPaints says:

    sometimes people just want to look at the darkest side of everything. if you feel confident enough and are around a few educated people, you are much more likely to make friends. I actually feel quite popular amongst some younger kids at my school. I am lucky to be at that place anyway.

  13. AnElephantThatPaints says:

    well, i have a similar story about going to such an accepting school, that I no longer have social phobia. but I still consider myself to be autistic. I still have my quirks, and wouldn’t change them to save my life

  14. AnElephantThatPaints says:

    there are asperger groups in some cities. don’t be afraid to join them or ask. just know that they won’t always be what you expect, which may be good or bad.

  15. AnElephantThatPaints says:

    okay. slow down here. there is nothing wrong with being proud of yourself, since it is much healthier than self-pity. I would be careful, however, not to think of yourself as superior to NTs.

    omfg, what an annoying voice. shit

  17. jhauenstein1975 says:

    Being AS is living hell. I lost my job, my wife and children are away, me and my mother don´t talk to each now, the only person who has offered me companionship is my father. I think he understands me, and I think next time he offers me some pot I’m gonna take it, maybe that would help.

  18. Colt2571 says:

    People who call AS silly or say “everyone’s got problems, blah blah” are incapable of understanding what it’s like to have this…it’s like telling a blind person to grow new eyes or something absurd…it’s hard to diagnose adults with AS because we get very good at hiding it and staying isolated with ourselves and our feelings, but inside it’s like a raging inferno of confusion about social situations and relationships…we understand being social, we just can’t do it…its torture.

  19. milascave says:

    And I think this video is very good. And as for the poetry, come on. You don’t expect to get Walt Whitman on Youtube.
    It helps get across what she’s trying to say, which is the point.

  20. milascave says:

    Not so cool if it bothers you and nobody else knows why.
    I don’t have that, but I am hypersensitive to high pitched noises, which may be related. They bug the hell out me.
    But having ear plugs in bothers me more than loud noises do, which is a nuscense.

  21. cubbykovu666 says:

    Cubby wears earplugs at college now has super sensitive ears can hear dog whistles that humans can’t hear which is cool mrow

  22. RightfullyReticent says:

    and because I didn’t know what it meant, I would get scared when they would make those faces. It would intimidate me and I would sometimes cry when I saw them. I would also either get mad or terrified from physical touch. My sensory hypersensitivities are touch and sound. I hatehatehate very loud noises. And fleshly touch will aggrivate me for long periods of time. When I was little, it use to terrify me, but now it’s only aggrivation.

  23. RightfullyReticent says:

    I am only mildly mind-blind. I can understand most facial expressions and emotions, but there (were) some that have confused me. I’m not confused of them now, but they still intimidate me while I have come to learn what they are. The faces are that “mischevious I’m-going-to-do-something-to-you face” (where the eyes go all crazy and they smile all scary like) and that “yeah, right” (where their eyes get small and their face gets all weird). I didn’t know what that meant when I was little (TBC)

  24. RightfullyReticent says:

    Exactly how I feel.

    In the video Natalie Beanland sounds a lot (and looks a lot) like me. I have her hair style, I have glasses, and I speak the same way she does. My hair, however, is much longer and my face is differently shaped.

  25. RubberWilbur says:

    Thanks you are right. I hear other people with AS saying that they wouldn’t change a thing and that they are who they are. But I think this is complete bull, I feel that AS handicaps us showing who we truly are. I want to express things that are in my heart and mind, but it doesn’t come out that way to “normal” people.
