It's a ridiculous diagnosis isn't it! I got told I had Personality disorder NOS when I was 17. I see it as the posh term for 'you've got something, but we can't be bothered to investigate it so here, have a cover all label'. I later got re-diagnosed with autism, Tourettes, ADHD and OCD. My 'facticio...

Police in the UK are getting just as bad and, worse they are getting away with it. We recently had a case involving a severely autistic man getting called a f-wording p-word (racist) then he got shoved by the two cops. They were recorded on the radio as saying those words, many impartial witnesses s...

I filled it in too. Just saying the phrase to feel 'whole' was a strange one for me, might be confusing for others too!

I don't know which countries the British soap opera Coronation Street is screened in, but if you get the opportunity please check out a character called Roy Cropper! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Roy_Cropper Funny story, Roy was supposed to be a psycho when he first appeared on Corrie. He was stalki...

I also have high functioning autism and lots of difficulties. That's why I sometimes find it hard to understand 'Asperger pride' but hey that's because my theory of mind doesn't work! I have 10 hours support a day and can't go out alone. I don't have trouble talking any more but I used to. Your spel...

I'm an emataphobe so naturally I have learned to turn my head away whenever someone is close to puking on tv, I also tend to get on edge whenever there is something in an episode that may lead up to vomiting (binge drinking alcohol or binge eating, food poisoning,stomach flu etc) Yep, I've had that...

Hey does anyone else diagnosed with autism/Aspergers play roller derby? I'm quite surprised how much I enjoy it given my hatred of being touched, touching others, interacting with others, dislike of loud noises etc. It's bringing out the best in me though! I'm still at rookie level as I haven't pass...

Well my Mum knew there was 'something' going on with me from about 5 when I started having anxiety attacks! She raised me as an NT with anxiety issues until she finally figured out I had autism when I was 14.

I've rocked since I was about 12. Before that my stims were more eye based! It gives me an amazing sense of calm when I am sensorarily overwhelmed. I also own a rocking chair which I love except it needs gluing back together...

My first pet rabbit was called Jenifer and her nickname became Jellybean. I thought it was cute, so used it as my moniker. Now that Jenifer has long since hopped over the rainbow bridge, it is kind of a tribute to her. I loved my little Jellybean!

I often feel low at times, but it is different from actual depression. When I have depression (have been diagnosed several times, currently in remission), I feel like there is no point in life, no reason to get up in the morning, my brain feels numb or over-emotional, I cry for no reason, I don't en...

I like having labels to some extent. Personally I have autism, Tourette syndrome, Obsessive compulsive disorder and ADHD. That's already quite a lot. Technically speaking though, it would be easy to label myself with many more conditions even though they might actually be parts of the four main cond...

I'm heading towards Islam but don't call myself a Muslim yet as I haven't taken shahadda. Not something to be ashamed of.
