You are perfect.
Remember this when you see the darkened skin around your eyes
That makes others inquire after your health
And all you can do is tell them you haven’t been sleeping well -
When in reality you haven’t slept properly for as long as you can remember.
Which isn’t long.
You are magic.
Remember this when you feel despair creeping in to steal your soul
Ignore their judging glances and stand proud
Rejoice in the black of your clothes, the beauty of your heart -
Rejoice in yourself, your identity, and don’t let them rip it from you.
Hold it tight.
You are wondrous.
Remember this when the rain is hurting your ears, and the sun, your eyes.
When your skin hurts because of incipient thunderstorms
And you cannot hear in the forest of cacophony that is life -
You will never be the same as all the rest of them, but that is wondrous!
Be yourself.
—  Be You

i had possibly the most harrowing meeting today.

it was about supporting “students on the autism spectrum”

at least 15 minutes were spent telling “funny” stories about working with autistic students.  and i wanted to cry, leave, or go on a rampage because triggering a student’s echocalia was worse for the aide than the student who could not stop saying the same phrase over and over. 

the presenters spelled “stimming” wrong on every slide. ah yes, “stemming” in which I grow a leaf and/or go to science class.  ffs.

many mentions of how autism mostly (only?) affects boys.

and it’s funny that we forget hygiene.

and it’s funny that we talk about trains.

and it’s funny that disruptions in our routine make the world feel chaotic and we are afraid or unnamed terrors and can’t leave our house.

and it’s funny that we can’t make eye contact or friends or careers.

and it’s funny that I know how much my coworkers think I’m a fucking joke.

To 17 year old anon: I have complex ptsd and asd. My asd was diagnosed earlier and during the talks my therapist discovered my trauma. Because of the complexity of both it took us over a year to figure out which trait was part of what and how to deal with it all. My suggestion to you would be to find a good therapist that can help you through this. My therapist said that only time can tell and in my case that proved to be true. Good luck!

Hi, I'm the 17 year old anon and I would like to thank you for the detailed response. The thing is I suspect I have bad memory of childhood possible because of my abusive family, which is also why I don't think I can involve my family in the diagnosis process. I'm not sure if my problems now stem from ASD or trauma. Maybe I'm just trying to find answers. The more research I do on ASD like stimming, the more memories are being 'triggered' for me. I can't remember any specific sensory related(1/2)

(2/2) sensory related issues in my childhood. I’m pretty sure I’ve been through sensory overload before but what I’ve experienced sounds different from what people have described their experiences to be like. Is getting very irritated for no reason, suddenly becoming very quiet and wanting to leave asap a form a sensory overload? Because I remember getting them a lot in shopping malls and sometimes class.


Trauma/PTSD can cause symptoms similar to autistic traits. This might be another reason your psychiatrist is reticent to diagnose you with ASD (she probably isn’t sure whether various traits are caused by one or the other). Especially for people who were abused or neglected since birth, that would understandably affect their development and make it very hard to tell whether they are autistic and would have had similar difficulties regardless.

As mentioned in the previous ask (http://askanautistic.co.uk/post/128109446284/hi-im-just-a-17-year-old-girl-who-suspects-she) there might be other ways your psychiatrist can explore your childhood behaviours that doesn’t involve your family.

It might also just take a bit longer to be able to get to the bottom of whether it’s purely trauma or whether it’s also ASD. It could possibly a different condition plus trauma.

Irritability, withdrawing/becoming quiet and wanting to leave etc can be signs of overload, although overload can occur in people for various reasons and I’m not sure whether that could also be possible due to trauma perhaps making noise or crowds harder to cope with.

Take your time. Continue to explore. There’s no need to rush. However slowly you figure things out you’ll get there in the end. There’s no point stressing yourself out too much over it. Finding answers is important, but it’s better to be thorough and consider things carefully and that can take time.

the anti-vax movement is built on and perpetuates fear, hatred, revulsion and vilification of Autistic people

it is not brave or new or radical to be an antivaxxer, it is not standing up to a scientific conspiracy, it is supporting an industry profiting off of the murder and abuse of Autistic people

just a friendly fucking reminder
