When you know you've behaved badly because of an overload (and I do know everyone can do this - I do this sometimes.) Do you try to make it up later? Do you think that having a diagnosis is helpful in terms of dealing with others - that is does it help you say "Look I had a little meltdown, sorry I...

I'm sorry about your situation, and I hope that your family will be able to heal (whether together or apart). Here's my input: ASD: Stimming, special interests, inability to lie, clumsiness, meltdowns, withdrawal, sensory issues and so much of the behaviour. Such as disappearing for hours or so when...

OP, what sort of accommodations would you request in an IEP? How would they help you achieve your potential? It might help to prepare a report (or ask your parents to do so) that outlines your problems, what the school can do about it, and how those accommodations can help you. Officials like shiny ...

I still think of them as tics because they do not take over. I am utterly confused by this statement...as someone with Tourette's, I can assure you that tics absolutely take over. It is not a choice...those who are able to control their tics temporarily will certainly need to express them...much th...

Buy musicians' ear plugs. I have an Etymotic pair that dampens only 12 db and still allows you to hear speech frequencies. I actually hear people better while wearing these because their voices aren't contending with all the other noise. They're not perfect, but they have really given me some peace...

Very short temper here, and very easily irritated. It takes me a hell of a lot of will power to control it. I do a decent job of it, which makes me proud of myself.

I don't mean to offend, but putting ANY special interest above your health is both dangerous and foolish. I am on Lamictal as well, for both my bipolar disorder and my absence seizures (which is like what you described). Having a seizure at the wrong time could hurt both you and others; one example ...

Well I don't know about everyone else, but now I really want to know what her name is, if you're able to type it without too much discomfort! :lol: In terms of the problem, I'd look at it two ways. First, if you can show respect to your "enemy," it makes you the better (less petty, hateful, etc.) pe...

I like both cats and dogs (gasp! I know...). However, I really prefer rats. They're the best of both worlds! They love being petted and scratched, they can laugh if you tickle them the right way and also grind their teeth in pleasure, they can play fetch or play with toys, they will come when you ca...

As someone with Tourette's, I'd rather that people not go looking for me, tyvm. It's bad enough as it is. I know how you feel because this is how I feel about my tics every day. People stare and I was given the name "Twitchy" by my brother and classmates. I guess I shouldn't, but I also don't want ...
