I’d just like to thank you for the time and effort you’ve put into it so far. Perhaps you don’t feel like you’ve helped much, or perhaps you feel like you lack the empathy for it; but remember; that’s an autistic kitten trait. We all have that in common. And you of all people should realize that. After all, you were (inadvertently) the one who taught me It’s okay to feel like that. With the help of some other kittens on the blog. I’ve felt managed to put so many things and doubts about myself to rest by the simple realization that I wasn’t alone in it.
Through this blog. That you kept.
So basically, thank you very much for giving us your time and patience. It’d be lovely if you were to return, or perhaps keep up activity more frequently but hey.
If it doesn’t work or feel right, it’s okay to let it go. Personally, you’ve helped me a lot. And I’m sure a lot of kittens out there feel the very same way. I’d also like to thank those kittens for sharing their moments with this blog. It’s really changed my outlook and given me hope that however I handle things is by no means bad. At all. It’s what makes us special in our right, and we’re better for it.
Once again, thank you.
And good luck with whatever you may pursue after this.
You've inspired me to contribute to the autism tag on Tumblr with positive things about my autistic child(ren) and why I as a parent to autistic child(ren) actually do not hate autism or want my kids to be "cured". Based on the feedback I've gotten thus far from my once-daily contributions, I'd like to thank you for that. Just saying. <3
Does anyone else not like when someone is playing their music so loud that you can hear it through their earbuds from several feet away? Particularly if there's something else you want to focus on? I got that in one of my classes today and ended up picking a different place to sit. (The best one seemed to be next to the printer. Thankfully it was only used once while I was sitting there.)
Is this something others experience too? When I find something, I sometimes smell it or rub it agaisnt my lips when I like the texture. My parents always gripe at me for putting things in/near my mouth. It just helps me study it better.
Could you make a little kitten meme for me? I’d really appreciate it.
Um alright so basically:
"Gets a song rec while listening to music"
"Suddenly extremely stressed out"
I dunno maybe it’s not an autism thing but I get really stressed and freaked out when this happens. Especially when there’s a lot of song recs at the same time. Like, I have a system of song listening please don’t mess it up.
First of all: Hi :D Second: I need help for a musical I'm writing, if they could be gentle enough to send me descriptions of what scares them the most and why, other disorders that people should gain consciousness of, and music. A lot of music. I will not publish anything that they send me if they don't want to :) Thank you for taking the time to read this. Greetings from a mexican kitten :D
Hi, I'm not exactly autistic but I have nonverbal learning disorder and I'm wondering if it's normal for someone who is autistic or similar to despise human made noises, like grunts and stuff. I can't sleep a lot at night because my sister is constantly making noises and it drives me up the wall! I hate hearing my own as well, and I catch myself stopping chewing because I can't stand it.
My sensory issues are really bad right now. I grew my hair out to my shoulders but now it feels like it's itching the back of my neck so I'm going to have to get it cut off again. I'm just feeling bummed out about this and I wanted to know if I was alone in this or not. (I have aspergers, but I have touch and sight sensory problems that come and go.)
oh no no you’re definitely not alone there. I have the exact same problem
My brother's on the spectrum and when he was first diagnosed (He was 8, I was 10) and he'd do something not socially acceptable (cutting in line or something) I'd ask my mom "Is that him, or is that the aspergers?" ... I just wanted to apologize, thanks to blogs like this I've realized it's impossible to separate the two, and rude to try...
Do you know any ways to make yourself STOP obsessing about something? I mean, it's fun and all, but I have things I need to get done and my brain won't let me :/
The only way I’ve found is by distracting myself with something else equally interesting and by positive reinforcement. Tiny, personal rewards when you catch yourself doing something not related to the obsession or when you notice things are changing with it
Is it normal for someone with autism who does not regularly have a lot of sensory problems to absolutely loathe the feeling of cotton pads? The ones you wipe make up off with or use in bandaging, the rough sort of cotton. Seriously, that, and the sound of fabric being loudly torn is made of death and makes me feel physically ill.
bit. ly/15uDi8B -- This showed on the news. Basically, an AS teen is shoved out of his classroom for 'being disruptive.' The article says it's policy is to 'redirect' someone out of the class if they're being a danger to others and they don't leave when asked, but it doesn't really sound like he was being dangerous. Even if he was, I think the force used was excessive, judging by the way he flies out the door. What do you think?
My kitten has been cleared to graduate kindergarten this year! I am excited beyond words, and so unbelievably proud of him. And I had to share this with you folks. This blog has contributed so much to his successes, enabling him to do even more by helping me help him do even more.
To test a common theory about the cause of autism, researchers recently studied how kids with autism process moving images. They found that the kids saw simple movements twice as fast as their typically developing peers.
I found out three years ago, at almost 23 yo, that I had PDD-NOS, and since then it feels like I've become more self-conscious of everything I do and say. Like 'is this normal?' or 'how can I say something to get across what I mean instead of accidentally offending someone?' Since then, I feel like I've distanced myself from what few friends I have because I don't want to offend them. Has anyone else had a problem like this, and how would you suggest I get out of this mindset? Awesome blog btw
Being around people can be grueling, especially because of things like that. Honestly, I usually give myself the benefit of the doubt. If something occurs to me to ask and I cannot say it any other way, I just say it in as tactful a way as possible. I distance myself from people who can’t accept me the way I am, but I also manage to find people who will.
If anyone has any other experiences they’d like to share and advice, since mine isn’t very good, please feel free to reply to this ask or tell arcwarrior!
So today, I got confirmation that I do have Asperger's, after a very confusing and stressful year with diagnosing. I am relieved to finally know, but at the same time, it hurts me that I am constantly being told how my AS is very mild and on the border... it sort of makes me feel like I don't belong anywhere, and that I shouldn't experience the problems I do experience. Sorry for bothering, and thank you for running this blog! It has helped me A LOT during this process.
<333 I’m glad it helped, but sorry that you feel that way. I know how you feel, sometimes I feel like that myself, but then I remember how good it feels to know what’s going on and have that confirmation. It doesn’t mean you don’t belong anywhere, you belong to yourself and those who will love and accept you from BOTH groups!
Right know I'm very stressed out because of my graduation. Over the past months my behaviour became more autistic. I'm getting more depend on my mum. I don't like being left alone and I need more physical contact like hugging, which I usually dislike. I guess it's because of the current situation. Has anybody made similar experiences?
The exact same thing happened to me right before graduation, honestly! I alternated between wanting everyone around and wanting no one around, and kept in almost constant contact with one of my best friends. An increase in stress can cause such things, and so can a huge change.
If anyone has any similar stories they’d like to share, feel free to reply to this Ask!
