 Forum: General Autism Discussion   Topic: Can I have Semantic Pragmatic Disorder and Asperger's?

So, because I'm so nosey, I was looking at the papers on the workspace while my parents were out and then I came across my SEN report thing from school, and it said I have Semantic Pragmatic Disorder. I'll be honest, I had no idea what it was. Then it further continued on about my Asperger's, which ...

Well, I was going to put, 'I don't really care', but I do. I'd be very upset if someone took my AS away from me. I don't care, however, about being socially defective(as such). Most people talk at dinner time to their friends or indulge in some other activity(i.e water fights), I read. I'm happy rea...

Researching soul-filled destinations, planning, executing, exploring, photographing, writing about the places. The shrink I went to for dx said I don't have AS because my obsession is USEFUL to others. 8O I hate it when I know more than the doctor or whoever I'm consulting in such issues xD. EMZ=P

That's pathetic. Once I was called a retard while running and it really damaged my self-esteem(I basically stopped running in public). I think people don't notice how offensive the actual word can be when people take it seriously. Retard is one of the words I hate and never use, and will often lectu...

I enjoy reading about diseases/disorders/conditions and their causes and possible cures. Generally these are very narrow, over the past 2 months I've read about: Capgras Syndrome Fregoli Syndrome Stockholm Syndrome Charles Bonnet Syndrome Solipsism Syndrome Seasonal Affective Disorder Major Depressi...

I think this might also be associated to my tendency to talk to my self(well, it definitely is). I was reading about Autistic Tics and Tourettes(SP?) Syndrome(I know I definitely don't has Tourettes, I just enjoy reading about things) and at some point it talked about Vocal/Verbal Tics. I can't reme...

I think I daydream. It's changed though, I used too be in a gaze but be very aware of my surroundings and what was going on, but now I spend a lot of the time in lessons day dreaming and not being aware of what the teacher is saying or people around me. I often grin and laugh while I daydream which ...

I actually have quite a good attention spam in terms of following the story as opposed to my NT friends. When I was younger I'd be able to repeat the entire script of a film... idk why I can't now. I generally get the story line but I pretty much never understand the endings nor the relevance of the...

It's only really been over the last year that I was concerned about how I walked. I thought it was because I sometimes walk a bit weird(certain muscles pull constantly in my legs with every step so I don't extend them as far, though it seemed subtle) but it turned out last month it was because I loo...

I get it quite a lot at school(High School). People are parasites off me and use me as fuel for their comedic fashion... When I first attended the school I'd seriously get pissed off and after around... probably 5 months of being there took it all out on one person(I forced her head into the table ...

It wasn't until just before last year that I came out about being autistic. Until very recently (and in many cases still is) autistic disorder has been considered a form of mental retardation. I'm a computer programmer, electronics technician, and locksmith. I am also a Biblical scholar. I don't th...

I've got an obsession with disorders, mainly neurological, ones anyway, it was kind of inevitable that AS happens to be one :P.

I'd go crazy... I don't like talking to people... but being isolated from them would make me paranoid...
I guess I'm not as big a fan on isolation as I thought... I actually think I'd kill my self o.O.
Obviously, though, there are other Aspies that seem to be going fine... 'cept the food.

Does anyone hear also experience difficulties responding to compliments?
Usually whenever I receive a compliment I just mumble, 'thanks' or completely ignore them, not to be rude but because I'm either embarrassed or don't know how to respond :/.

I think it's a universal response... 'no matter what s**t your in now... it could be deeper.' As Gina said, a guilt thing of something pretty conventional in this society...
