| Ok, I have only read the first page, so forgive me if I have repeated anything already stated.|
I was born with autism. As far as anyone can tell, I am completely normal, mentally and physically, and am completely capable of leading a job and managing a home (which I do) I was on a very stronge psichosis drug and was in a special education class through all of school.
I am out of school (thank god) and I have recently kicked my meds and walked away from the mental health institution. Frankly, life has never been better for me, because I don't believe I needed all this. The drugs, the special ed, the mental health... I just didn't need any of it.
So I understand what you went through. Being in the special ed for no good reason, there were people like him who are fed the idea that they can't help themselves and so can get away with anything, and they do try. I was stabbed by a special boy and then was suspended for shoving him away. It was only a little jab to the side, but I pushed him and was in serious trouble 'because he doesn't know any better'
if you ask me, its the system that is wrong. Its unknowingly supporting and even encouraging this kind os crap.
Well Autism is where say you take everything seriously right? And you have trouble making out what facial expressions mean/tone of voice right? ( Tell me if im wrong )
Getting to the point.Well done on feeling better than you ever have. Theres people with mental illnesses who will flow with the system, because they know they can get it easy and play stupid. When theres people like you who make something of themselves, and don't want to just rely on the system.
Those are all things that come with most cases of Autism. Unable to read faces and such. I never really had anything like that... basically, if a guy with a mental health badge had never told me I was Autistic, I wouldn't have known, and my parents wouldn't have either. Thats why I didn't trust their recommendations to stay drugged up and seeing a mental doctor. I just could not get a straight answer, so I walked away.
Sadly, there are people like this brat, who know they can and will get away with things that the mainstream students cannot. They're teachers and carers are not helping the matter either. My fiance has a mum who is a substitute teacher, and so she has seen a special ed unit that actually isn't so bad, and the kids get proper teaching and such. My experiances though, was that they weren't being helped to overcome anything. They were tossed into a colourful room with crayons and such and just babysitted.
