Hello everyone, I've been doing a bit of research lately and I came across something that made me have a miniature epiphany, if you could call it that. So a bit of backstory: When I was born, I had what was called shoulder dystocia (shoulders got stuck during birth), and meconium aspiration (inhaled my own sh**), these things caused me to asphyxiate resulting in me not having oxygen for 3 minutes and 27 seconds. I researched the long term effects of this kind of birth injury, and um, let's just say the long term effects aren't good. For example, the potential long term effects can be: Cerebral Palsy, autism, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), seizures, and behavioral problems and more. As of now I can say that I have not been diagnosed with any major disorders except for an unspecified anxiety disorder, but I am strongly suspecting that I may be on the autism spectrum. The fact that I was born without a lack of oxygen for a significant period of time might suggest that I'm on to something. I've always felt different to my peers, however, and do not consider myself to be good at socializing. Anyways, my question is, would the fact that I had difficulties at birth possibly be an asset to me as far as seeking out a diagnosis? I'd also like to know how many other Wrong Planet-goers have a similar story. :idea: :?:

Quite all right. I've seen people, with nary an apology, post ten times your amount of "wall."

Birth brain asphyxia is the cause of so many things, for sure. It probably should be suspected in many cases of disorders which are seemingly of "idiopathic" origin.

I was born without oxygen as the umbilical cord was wrapped tightly around my neck and I spent a long time in the hospital as a baby. While my mother has a very rare, hereditary genetic condition that CAN lead to Autism and ADHD like symptoms, I show no signs of having it, nor would anyone in my family be anything close to the spectrum. It is an interesting theory to say the least.

I was born cyanotic. That could easily be the reason for problems such as severe DCD and cognitive difficulties which may be separate from my autism.

I wouldn't say that the fact that you lacked oxygen at birth would influence a decision by a medical professional to diagnose you as having autism. It's very possible that the lack of oxygen you suffered at birth had no effect and you were autistic regardless. What you should do is take some of the online tests available to you to see if you have the characteristics of autism and there's indicate you do, you should seek a diagnosis if that's important to you.

Correct, the strongest correlation between the increase in autism over the last 10 years or is that the average age of parents has increased. And correlation doesn't mean a real cause. I think we still have a lot to learn about what causes autism. It may very well be a legitimate trait that is deemed valid to survive through the process of natural selection i.e. women just can't get enough of me.

For three weeks after I was born I was in a humidicrib because I couldn't maintain body temperature. My mum would visit every day to give me my milk (it was expressed beforehand so the nurses would feed me when my mum wasn't there). Some may think that being mostly alone in a crib for so long might be an environmental factor for a developmental delay. Who knows.
