i get major migraines..i could barely stay awake on the wheel and i threw up in my mouth. a couple times i almost passed out from them and had to leave work
i tried getting on meds but they just slowed me down by making me tired, dizzy, and depressed
now i dont pretend to be a medical expert but sometimes i wonder if certain conditions and health problems are made worse by autism and why meds affect autistic brains drastically different than nt's. doctors have no answers
we must be aliens :alien: after all lol

Ive always had trouble making eye contact, but then i lost my hearing 8 and a half years ago so i lipread no matter what.missing out on conversation is usual due to the hearing loss,made worse by Aspergers.

Playing DIY psychiatrist (since I can't afford the real thing), it seems to me...

Being AS in an NT world is stressful.

Stress has a direct impact on physical health.

Therefore, AS, at least via the stress factor, impacts physical health.
