Aspergers, ADHD & Dyslexia

This blog is here for you. It has been made to help everyone who has or know someone with Aspergers, ADHD & dyslexia. As I myself have these I am sharing my experiences so that others can learn from them. Feel free to ask me a question too as I’m here to help.

aspergers and random depression

autisticdrift:

At first I thought this was an odd thing to search for but after thinking about it a little, I realized that I get this. Sometimes I’ll just be overcome with feelings of moroseness and hopelessness for no reason. Suddenly, life seems pointless and I can’t even say why. Then, the next day or the following day or even later the same day, the down feeling is gone and I still don’t know what the source of it was. 

Happens to me also, can be for no reason or a build up of reasons, best way to solve if for me is to close myself away, bore my brain until it forgets why I’m depressed and then force myself to act on something very thought intensive. Diversion for me is what sometimes works…

aspies dislike dishonesty

autisticdrift:

I’m reluctant to say yes to this because that will play into the fallacy of “autistic people never lie.”

However, I really can’t stand dishonesty. First, it’s confusing. Second, it’s often pointless and done for social reasons that I find hard to work out. Third, it makes social interaction even…

Talk truth. That’s what the world needs!

What to do after a meltdown

mywiresarecrossed reblogged your post and added:

Tea, my favorite blanket, and I tend to watch a familiar tv show that I’ve seen over and over because it helps my mind calm down.

boreism replied to your post “What do you do for aftercare after a meltdown?”

Tea, sleep, comforting…

This is very important in the world of aspergers! My breakdowns have been aggressive or depressive but never on the light side, I can ruin everything I have worked so hard for in less than an hour if I’m not careful. How do you cope?

We feel guilt for another reason-Asperger’s is not an obvious, life-threatening condition like cancer or some other horrible disease or situation, and we know it. We look “normal”; we are often extremely smart. Some of us may not have any learning deficits at all, others do but they’re usually not obvious, for example dyslexia. When others tell us to “deal with it” we wish that we could, and part of us thinks we should. But telling a person with Asperger’s to just “get on with it” it like telling a person in a wheelchair to take the stairs if they want to get to the second floor.

This is very accurate… I have found this to be the hardest part of my life after learning about my aspergers… If only there was a way to show people what it’s like.

Individuals on the autistic spectrum have a kind of intelligence untouched by tradition or culture - unconventional, unorthodox, strangely pure and original

It’s true, nobody to this day does maths like me. And that’s just one example

stimming why does it make an aspie better

autisticdrift:

Because it helps us:

  • regulate emotions
  • deal with anxiety, fear or stress
  • concentrate on a hard task
  • express excitement and happiness
  • burn off excess energy in our body 

I need to find mine…. Any advice?

That motor skills of a toddler is pretty normal for me. Shortly before writing this, I fell down a single stair. That takes skill.

And this then makes for one very bad day… You should try it some time!

So long…. It’s been a while since I last posted so sorry about that!

The good news is I’m back! Kind of, and I’ll be posting some more stuff about the things I find good and bad and related to the three labels. Any requests then please ask away!

Working on solutions

So many times I have been in what I consider a good position.

Everything is simple and easy to understand, but yet there seems to always be something, a thought of some kind that will get in the way, or choose to come up at a very inappropriate moment.

So I have been thinking to myself, how can I do my best to help those who are close understand! I see that I may not be the easiest person, and I know how much they do for me. So why does that mean I cannot try to do something back?

Well to be honest it doesn’t, so we shall see how it goes, I’m going to try different things and ways to help the people close to me. And to help myself too.

As for those I don’t know, stuff any effort there, they can get over it.

We do not naturally care about people we don’t know… If we tried to feel sorry for every death, our little hearts would explode… I don’t have any physical reaction to the news. And there’s no reason I should. I don’t know them and the news has no effect on my life.
