  • Ritz
    Ritz 27 days ago +7

    People generally can’t accept that I’m autistic, because i come off as pretty socially skilled, warm and empathetic. The main way my autism affects me is hypersensitivity to all sensory inputs, which makes life like a bad trip for me most of the times. Noise gives me electrical like shocks through the body, light gives headaches and nausea, and social stimulation wears me out completely. It’s very debilitating for me but mainly a physical problem rather than a psychological. Autism isn’t just quirky, it can be really painful.

    As someone on the spectrum I never realised that other people might not understand what spectrum represents. If anyone is confused spectrum refers to the symptoms of autism as there are many traits and to be autistic you just need a few different traits. Two people can be autistic but have completely different and sometimes opposite traits

    I used to work at Walmart as a department manager. There was a young boy sitting one of my shelves with his brother. I very kindly asked them not to sit on the shelve because I didn't want them to get hurt. They got up and left and I thought that was the end of it. 2 minutes later this Lady approaches me and asked if I said something to a little boy. I said "Yes ma'am I asked him to please not sit on the shelf due to the possibility of it collapsing and cause him injury perhaps even death."
    I was told that next time I need to go find the mother because he has autism and was in tears. The small boy was of dark skin, slightly darker than mine. The woman who approached me was a white woman who happened to not be in the area of the time. 🤷🏽‍♂️ Personally I would prefer to hurt his feelings than to see him get hurt in my store.

They opened it and were playing with the exposed switches a wires. Instead of thanking me she just yelled at me like i was the bad guy. For real... i couldnt believe these kids and like 5 of them playing around with an open power station outside. I didnt know they were deaf and I dont see how that matters.
      Oh and at the time i was 17...

      @Charlie LyricTarot You're right that it's sarcasm (because the question was rhetorical), but it's nothing more than that: a joke.
      Reading into it any more than that is taking it too far, when obviously Bill wasn't offended by it. Not only that, but it's just not right to assume the worst of these absolute strangers for no reason.
      And, honestly, calling it a "simple concept" is a bit much. The rest of these comments show that it's not as simple as you seem to think.

      ​@sultan788 "behind in growth in certain aspects" may be correct, however individual traits of Autism can also push one far ahead - as proven with certain analytical & mathematical capabilities.

      ​@Jesus Garcia It's a question like "is your seatbelt on?"
      It's asking if you're prepared for what's coming, but it's humorous because it's obvious that Bill IS sitting down, so the question is redundant.
      The guy is asking "are you ready to hear this answer," but he does so in a way that expects the answer "yes" (because he knows that Bill is sitting).
      So, the joke is that it's funny that he asked, because he didn't ask a question where Bill could say "no".

      ​@Tucker Cobern it gets frustrating when you have to explain the same stuff about your existence over and over again especially if that part of you has a hard time communicating with people.

    • Scarlet Rose
      Scarlet Rose Month ago

      ​@Devon Bowen it's usually easier to understand someone's experiwhen you talk directly to them. Most of the time, I agree it's best to try to find the answer on your own before asking someone to define their existence, but with autism it's really hard to find sources from autistic people themselves. Most Google searches will lead you to autism mommy blogs and "scientists discover thing autistic people have been saying for years". The Austin's sphere is saturated with the voices of nonautistic people.

      ​@Doc Julien the line between being lazy and having a disorder of some kind is the why. Are you not doing things because you just don't want to get up, or is it because your overwhelmed, don't know where to start, or feel like there's no point in anything. If your being lazy not doing the thing is relaxing, if you have a disorder, not doing the thing is stressful.
      I think trying to find a line between disorder and lack of intelligence for the sake of judgment is mean and useless so I don't know where that line is sorry.
      Actually normalizing not making eye contact if it makes you uncomfortable is helpful to autistic people even if you aren't autistic yourself. People regardless of whether or not they are autistic should be allowed harmless nonconformity. You don't need an excuse to get away with not fitting in.

      @Spotty I interpreted it completely different. I took it as ‘are you sitting down?’ Which he obviously is, so it’s a redundant question. Like in Australia we’d say ‘do bears shit in the woods?’. Meaning the answer is so obvious that it doesn’t need an answer.

      @Obman's History Project one of the reasons most would ask is if there not “normal” is if a noticeable difference is apparent in day to day life that can give you trouble for instance I’ll give you an example of one of my issues and that was and kinda still is water and I don’t mean like in bathing that is perfectly fine I mean if it was rain outside then I could not go out for if I tried I wold shutdown and become unresponsive/paralyzed if a little water touched my clothes along with other things but usually and what the doctor wold look into is if there was trouble in infancy delay in baby milestone those those kind of things while one of the biggest symptoms you might herd of is the lack of verbal/ability to speak for a longer then normal period not all people with autism have it so it really comes down is this affecting my day to day life and if so how is it affecting my day to day because there are times where people can go there whole life without knowing they where any different with people righting them off as quirky in nature because it’s doesn’t affect them to a point where it hinders there day but because when the symptoms are most noticeable is the early stages of life it’s a lot harder to get diagnosed the older you get but then again that may have changed but that’s was how it was last time I checked

    I myself am autistic and this is how I can explain. As he said we have multiple different traits and difficulties. I can split this into two ways high functioning which means their traits don't necessarily make life extremely difficult. These would be sensitivity to certain senses or difficulty with understanding body language, facial cues, or reading social cues and understanding what you should or shouldn't say in the moment, and obsessions with unordinary/not common things like me I'm really interested in phenomenons such as the Bermuda triangle or frogs falling from the sky. (these are what I have). On the other side you then have low functioning which makes it extremely difficult in daily life. This would be non-verbal, poor motor skills, or not being able to do much on your own. I personally don't know a lot about low functioning. So yeah autism isn't a 1-10 system of autism it's just people behaviors and functions bring different. The closest thing to a scale is low and high functioning which just means how much you can function on your own

      @Trøüt This would be true if the thing was said was actually offensive and if that said thing was not clearly satire. The problem is that people get offended if you misgender a butterfly these days. Being offended quite literally means nothing because people are offended at, and for, everyone and everything. When it comes to offensive humour the vast majority who are offended are not of the targeted group, the targeted group is too busy laughing.

      @Jailbreak Moments Then people shouldn't have the right to say highly offensive shit to people.

This gaslighting thing people do where they say the most outlandish shit about someone and something they have no idea about and then gaslight the person for having a negative emotion to it. If you have every right to say whatever joke you want then they have e every right to express how offended they are and it'
      s something you should learn to deal with when you re creating the problem.
