I don't believe aspergers exists, you guys are just smart anti-social people. I consider myself anti-social, but have a small group of friends, i suck at conversations and eye-contact.

If Aspergers doesn't exist, does that mean that none of the ASD disorders exist?

So the twitches; preoccupations with random and narrow subject areas; difficulties using figurative language and countless other symptoms are just because people have no social skills. I think not.

I have a niece with adhd, or so they said. She was pretty young at the time, just a child and they tried telling her she had mental problems.. lol. I'm no specialist but I'm not sure if I've ever came across a 'normal' young child who ISN'T hyper and outgoing. They tried putting the poor girl on drugs so instead of her being able to express herself she would just be constantly sedated..

I'm not saying that people can't have adhd or anything, just I think they diagnose people waaay too much just to sell their pills and it's sick messing with someones childhood like that.. they have their whole teen lives to experiment drugs with lol. When someone's diagnosed with ADHD they're not going to bother trying to learn cause they were already told they have a disability that makes it so they can't.. then once their sedation wears off and realize they've been misdiagnosed, you're gonna be lookin a fool lol. Same thing with people told they have a disability that prevents them with social interaction, well if you're told there's nothing you can do about it, chances are you aren't going to bother trying to do anything about it.

I used to have general anxiety really bad, anxiety attacks and all until I realized how much of it was just all in my head.. as soon as I came to terms that I control my mind and my mind is what's causing the problems, I realized I can fix the problem myself without drugs, and I did. I stood face to face with my fears and learned how to control them. It's just all about learning to control your thoughts and disconnecting emotions from thoughts to realize that they are simply just that, intangible, non-materialistic thoughts that don't affect anything unless you allow them to. Also your diet as well, and I cannot emphasize this enough! You literally are what you eat, if all you eat is processed mush , you're going to feel like processed mush. Simple as that. People just don't realize how much your diet affects not only your physical ability, but your mental ability just as well.

GMS- I was half expecting a post on how the government gives people Autism by spiking the water supply, but that was actually a very intelligent, informative post. cookie.gif

The reason we see so many people with Autism in America is because of all the genetically modified food tounge.gif

Just chiming in to say that I really think SagaciousKJB can contribute a lot and it would be a damn shame if his life were to rot away and never reach his full potential.

And I'm not just being all kind and 'you can do it believe in yourself!'. I seriously mean it. Some people are worth squat and are better off dead, but sag has some skills that can seriously be put to good use.

Also, I was once diagnosed with assburgers. Was really social anxiety that I got over (going to school now). Pills helped, the key is that you get diagnosed CORRECTLY. Cause pills and the like CAN help. But YOU have to be the educated patient.

I don't think so.
GMO foods have only been linked to cancer, shorter lifespans, and organ failure, not mental disorders. I suppose it could be possible, but I just haven't seen any evidence for the connection to mental disorders.


My thoughts on Aspergers....

For most of human existence people lived, traveled, hunted and foraged in small close-knit groups or tribes.
It wasn't until recently in human history that agriculture and civilization sprang up, and humans were thrusted into this new environment called the "city". The human brain isn't well adapted for city life (neither is the human body). There will be many adverse mental and physical conditions as a result of modern society, because the human body isn't particularly evolved for living a modern life. That is the plain truth.

Could you expand on this? I'm genuinely interested in this idea, although not sure I agree with it - for example, if this were true, you'd see a statistically significant downturn in levels of mental disorders amongst rural communities and lesser developed countries, and I'm not sure that's the case.

People are physically smaller and/or more feeble in cities compared to rural areas. I can't even begin to explain this. Look at the height of a New Yorker and compare it to the height of a kid from Iowa, big difference. Ethnicity may play a role but I wouldn't count on it.

I'm calling semi-bullsh*t on this.

All the black kids that are younger than me are f*cking tall. They sure as hell aren't feeble, either.

I mean, if we're talking white kids, then blame it on this metrosexuality skinny jeans sh*t. Otherwise, I work out regularly. I doubt I'd be so tiny compared to these rural kids.

It's semi-bullsh*t, for sure.
Whilst it's true that there are physiological differences between city and country dwellers, the issue is far more complex. Generally speaking, those who live in the proper countryside (villages, hamlets ect) have better diets than many of those who live in inner-city and suburban areas, which therefore results in better overall health and more regular growth patterns. However, even this is a generalisation- diet varies much more dramatically dependent on the social and ethnic aspects of a family or individual- essentially, what they eat (and in what quantity) is influenced by many more factors than their environment. Whatsmore, as city urban house prices skyrocket (particularly in London at the moment, but also in other major conurbations) due to a severe lack of housing, many real estate in central areas becomes soleley for the more affluent, upsetting this balanace. In essence, those with lower incomes are gradually pushed out to the suburbs, taking whatever dietary influences they have with them.

If you look at it from a purely movement based point of view, those with lower incomes and therefore (generally) worse diets tend to live in the suburban or extra-urban areas in cities, whilst those with higher incomes (and generally better diets) live outside the cities, or at their very hearts. But in reality, there are too many other factors involved to even make an accurate assessment.

I've got Asperger's. Diagnosed when I was 4. I didn't speak to anybody but my mother until I was 6, I had to go to communication classes and they worked. I am not phased by the amount of people I speak to anymore. I also taught myself to empathise, rather than having no understanding of how people are feeling.

Remember, it's only a disability if you let it disable you and you feel disabled by it. If you like having it, you're not disabled, you're enabled, to see things differently. Think differently. The crazy ones, the misfits, square peg in the round hole. It doesn't matter. I am an ASD 'sufferer' and I wouldn't change it for the world. It's great in job interviews. When I was sitting my police constable's interview I was asked why I felt I'd be a good constable, my reply was simple. My condition lets me see things differently, and I pick up on tiny details. I got in.

Don't let it hold you back!

Personally, I have nothing. But a lot of my friends have Learning Differences (LD) and ADD or ADHD. Usually they have a hard time in class, my friends with ADHD are often the ones yelled at the most by the teachers. The teachers do have softer spots for them but sometimes they explode (literally).

That's kind of ridiculous. Considering a great deal of New Yorkers weren't born in America and even more are only second and third generation Americans. Pretty sure adaptation doesn't kick in quite that fast, bud. Besides, I'm from the Bronx and I'm 6'3". biggrin.gif

Yeah it turns out that height statistics are extremely unavailable, flimsy and unreliable, so I can't back that up for now, all I can say is that I saw it on CNN a few years ago.

I don't think it's a matter of adaptation or anything, but then again I don't have the data so I'll get back to you on that.

Me too. I was diagnosed with Asperger. But it happened when I was 12. It was a bit late and terrible :whuh:

 

I learned to speak when I was 1. I learned to draw when I was 3. Initially, before being diagnosed, my parents thought that I had ADHD, but not.

 

I've got Asperger, obviously, since I was born, but I was diagnosed with 12, in late 2007. :dontgetit:

Next time you post in a D&D topic, try contributing something more than an anecdote.
