Auties, Aspies, and other CloudCuckooLanders!:

Concerta and other meds for ADHD make me zoink out. I just sit there staring at the wall until I can get some caffeine in me.

I developed Hypo-mania with psychosis at the age of 14. Never stopped me from living life to the fullest regardless and I've been getting more and more on top of the condition at years go by.

I am diagnosed with PDD-NOS, but I never got any medication. I have had two social interaction trainings, but nothing really happened for the last four years.

Aspie and technically OCD, though I've had therapy so the OCD part is "in remission" now.

In my opinion, though, it can be hard to separate mild/medium aspie from average geek. Not saying there isn't a difference, but maybe not as much as everyone thinks.

Went into ANOTHER Aspergian meltdown hours earlier and ripped up a tablecloth because I felt SO enraged and pissed off at my own dead-end life. Mum wasn't pleased with the outcome... Then I listened to Vocaloid music to calm myself down... still seeing RED...! (was also having a Menstrual Menace with my meltdown episodes)

I didn't want mum to go to work tomorrow. (just wonderful, I kind of 'phased-out' in my utter rage- and when I finally calmed down I realised I just demolished half the tablecloth, snapped a plastic ruler and a tissue-box) What Have I Done?!

Huh? My heart's skipping a few beats... I think I took too much medication. I hope my heart's not giving up on me. (feels dizzy and then feels a little 'high') wheeeee.

Asperger's and slight ADHD. Found my people!

ADHD seems to be unusually evident at school, considering how much zoning out I do in class and the fact I love yelling at innaprorpiate times. Oh, and I start swordfights with yardsticks during homeroom. Fun times.

Dunno if I actually fit there, but here's my story

I was oficially diagnosed serious OCD at a young age, my social skills falls right into the autistic spectrum territory, enough to my doctor to suspect I'm actually an Aspie, but as I left treatment it was never fully explored.

I'm nowadays a psychology student at college, where I was described as "schizotypical"...

Nevertheless, despite my socially awkward traits, I seem pretty functional to most of the people

[up]d'you mean "schizotypal"? That's what Google says I should be looking for if I search for "schizotypical".

[up] Sorry, language confusion. Certainly meant "Schizotypal"

By that term, do they mean someone who has some symptoms common with schizophrenia but hasn't had a full-on schizophrenic break?

One of my housemates is schizophrenic, so I now understand a lot more about what it does, at least in his case — I do understand there's some variety.

Hmm...

I'm not sure about a cause-effect relationship between a schizotypal behavior and schizophrenia

In college, I was told there is no such relationship, or its links hasn't been proved, even if they share common traits.

It seems that is controversial between scientists. At least DSM-IV regards both as different disorders.

Said that, I'm not very happy about the idea of developing schizophrenia.

BTW schizophrenia is incompatible with Asperger's Syndrome.

A lot of the psychiatric stuff is like that — we know that certain people experience certain things, but the classification of them is very subjective at the best of times.

Both schizotypal and asperger's appear to cause a lot of social isolation, but it seems from my reading just now that it's for very opposing reasons. Asperger's, it seems a lot of the time we just don't notice things. Schizotypal appear to notice "too much", including things that may not be actually there.

This is confusable because one of the ways Asperger's people cope is that we attempt to overcome a lack of / inability to notice things by over-processing them analytically. We're enhancing blurry, noisy photographs and sometimes what we see are artifacts purely of the enhancement process or the noise, to put it in metaphorical terms.

While, according to the stuff I just read about schizotypal, it's more that their metaphorical image sensor is seeing things that might not be there at all, from the beginning. The erroneous artifacts are not there from over-processing, but are there from the beginning.

I had another Asperger-related meltdown yesterday and THIS is the only song that cheered me up. I related to it because it was similar to my life. Music often calms me down when I'm feeling like the world's against me :3 I guess music soothes the savage meltdown? Is there any proof of that scientifically?

even though i am a diagnosed aspie, i don't necessarily "isolate" myself very much (or not as much as i used to), as i have a group of friends to hang out and talk to, but i usually prefer to be a loner outside of school.

[up]similar, I'm very social for an aspie when I can be. It drains me, like I'll fall asleep two hours earlier but it's generally worth it.

I'm a very social aspie too. I don't have as many friends as some people, but they are people I can count on. Oh, and I was invited by the girl I like to a date, but it was cancelled due to external circumstances. The university administration fucked up and put her in wrong language group by mistake, so she and I spend whole day fixing that. She was too tired for anything when we finished, and then it started raining cats and dogs.

I had another meltdown, this time my dad punched me in a row so hard it fricking hurt. I don't want to live on this planet anymore. i hate my life. I hate my family. My life sucks.

All I said was I disagreed with mum about some stuff.

Edit: (huff, huff) ... I'm trying to Think Happy Thoughts by putting on music. It's working.

Hoo, haven't taken to the forums in a while.

Is there room for another Aspie in here? smile

Do any of you sometimes do stuff that you are well aware comes off as very excentric?

For example I usually walk backwards if the sun is low as to not get it in my eyes. I don't see it as a problem as long as I can see the sense in it myself.

It's when I do stuff that I find strange myself, I get a little disturbed. Like my fits of Dissonant Laughter.
