After moving halfway across the world, getting married and spacing out contact with my family, I'm at the point where I want to cut off contact so I can heal inside after decades of abuse. Later I can go into details about the nature of the abuse, but for now I'm just asking for your understanding....

It sounds like you're saying that these shows are his special interests, yes? From your post I'm not clear on why you do not want him watching them. Please provide further explanation on why you believe they are negatively impacting him. After he is watching this cartoons he is imitating in very un...

Because I have trouble on 2 way conversations on certain topics due to my autism it has caused one of my Discord friends to block me. This is horrible :( Ahh, Yes My personal philosophy is if they can't deal with your communication problems then they aren't worth being friends with in the first pla...

My second son is not vaccinated and is super cute kid. He is 15 months old and loves sharing time with us. My first son has Asperger (is vaccinated) and as i remember he'd play on his own, would have some repetitive behaviour (for example arranging stuff in particular order), had fixation on partic...

No, I'm saying that tantrums are different to meltdowns and both autistic people and allistic people without mental illnesses (some of us have mental illnesses on both sides of that divide) who are adults should be mature enough not to have tantrums. Meltdowns can be avoided by not going places wit...

Maybe if you bothered to use paragraphs correctly.

I gave it a good shot.

You're essentially saying 'what about all the people who prefer disorder and chaos'.

In what way would it be superior, what about the people who prefer something that isn't as structered and like to go with the flow what about the people who don't have hobbies. I don't understand why you seem to think that parts of it are disabling but other parts might not be but still don't think...

Toddler tantrums tend to be the manipulative type. They are perfectly fine for a child who has no other outlet and who has only just learnt to talk. Adults shouldn't be throwing them though. If it's based on emotion alone and you're not mentally ill, calm down, take some time to be upset alone, the...

It can be both a disability and a difference without contradicting. The two do not contradict each other at all. I wonder what would happen if someone had many of the symptoms of autism and they had significant impairments, especially in their learning but yet the doctors couldn't find autism in th...
