Since you have a counselor, it might help to have that person to make a quick call on your behalf explaining your situation in the future. I think it would help to show you have an advocate. I think a doctor office and the like are less likely to treat you badly or dismiss you, if they know you hav...

Meltdowns are caused by an accumulation of stress and sensory overload. When you get to your limit it could be the most minor thing that sets it off. You need to identify the things that are stressing you and try to lesson them as much as possible. Sensory overload somtimes is obvious and sometimes...

I feel ya. I've had outbursts like that. Nowadays I bring my wife in with me to appointments most of the time so that I can fully understand and cope with what they're trying to tell me. Most of my appointments are done with only half my thoughts on them because I don't usually know what they're sa...

"You're the spawn of the devil"??? Who says that?? That's like something 12 year olds say to each other during an argument. The front desk people may have had more sympathy than it seemed. I think those people sometimes just enjoy looking brash. To intimidate people I guess. Keep the clie...

I also told her at the front before I went and talked to someone else and before I left that I have Autism and I get anxious with this stuff. So I feel hurt they didn't even listen to me. I was only recently diagnosed, and I am still learning about triggers and coping skills to deal with stuff like ...

I unfortunately do not have a car nor a license, nor do I have anyone that can take me to another state that is over 45 minute car ride to see a different doctor. And there being no other doctors her in this city or the two cities that I can take a bus to, I don't know what to do. :/

I'm really a stickler for change. I will freak out and have the worst meltdowns if things get changed, and especially last notice. So I get a phone call Monday for "my orthopedic" telling me that they're not going to see me Tuesday unless I bring money into the appointment. Well, I only wo...

I went through a whole list of different diagnosis growing up. ADD, schizophrenia, bipoloar, depression. Last year I was diagnosed with Asperger's Syndrome, and after doing some more research on it, found a lot of it made sense. Unfortunately in my case, my dad and his mom do not think that I have A...

I was diagnosed last year in March a few months before my 29th birthday with Asperger's syndrome. A lot of stuff that happened to me as a child finally kind of clicked into place. I'll be 30 next month, and I still have a lot of meltdowns. I feel like if I had been diagnosed earlier in life, I could...
