There are times I wish I was just autistic and not also bipolar. Autism makes things slightly harder, but combined with bipolar, I feel like a mess. Bipolar is something I wish I didn't have, and wouldn't wish on anyone else. It's a miserable condition that I feel people look down upon more than other conditions. Most people see bipolar people as scary or "not right in the head". In reality, though, bipolar is a real medical condition, with a physiological basis. In other words, it's the same as having a physical problem that requires medication...it just manifests differently.

Hello. I've got 3 diagnosis, ASD, ADHD and schizoaffective disorder.

I take medication to stabilize my moods and to prevent delirium, Solian 50mg and Abilify 5mg + Ritaline.

My schizoaffective disorder affects my life a lot, it seems that I tend to hold contradictory positions or feelings simultaneously, and to behave in ways that lead to my disadvantage, and ruin my life. Delirium can be very extended and structured.

I've been diagnosed BP for years now, but more recently noticed autistic traits. The BP is a nightmare, having mood swings left and right. It doesn't help when you can't properly communicate these feelings with people. Been living in my own world all my life. Just be grateful even though it's hard sometimes

Hey all, I'm not sure whether I have bipolar, usually I go to hospital after an episode around the end/start of a year...

I think it might be seasonal or something.

I remember acting up alot when I wasn't on meds to the moon phases. It was strange. Was I a werewolf? :P

anyways I have ASD with schizoaffective comorbid with traits of bipolar, how do you do everyone? :)

What happens to me is I get suddenly severely depressed then I end up in the psych ward but it's followed by mania and they think I'm okay and release me and the cycle goes on and on and on...

I do not have Bipolar, but I do suffer from Asperger's Syndrome.

It hinders my social skills and even quality of life to some extent.

It makes me feel sad and anxious. I try to be nice to others. But in many cases, people would be mean to me back. They would shun, ostracize, and (further back in time) bully me. All because of something I have no control over.

I've been managing Asperger's fairly well lately. But I still feel a bit left out and depressed.

Hi all! I've noticed there are a lot of us on here, and thus a lot of repeat thread postings, so I thought maybe I'd try creating a special thread for us to communicate with each other, seek advice, and so forth.


Good idea. I’m 72 and found I had Asperger’s Syndrome 23 years ago. This was only 2 years after the United Nations World Health Organisation gave it that name. There were few experts in the condition back then.

My treatment was so successful my boss asked me to coach and counsel my office colleagues with it. I did, and received 3 annual salary increments for it, one year after another. At the age of 50, they appointed me as their Chief Instructor.

At first, I used the office intranet, which was a secure, scrambled, system, as I worked for the government. But, after 3 years, all my colleagues left. They wound up our professional association at United Nations behest and retired. But they asked me to go on coaching and counseling them. So I switched my practice to the world wide internet and working outside office hours. It was because they were no longer fellow government employees.

This exposed me to people who had never been my colleagues. And my client list rocketed from about 400 to about 4000 and drove me to attempt suicide at age 55. Suicide ideations are the natural recourse of auties and aspies to stress. Few talk about it because of the strong social stigma attached to it.

All my clients were suicidal when they contacted me, which was very stressful for me. But I found myself specializing in what I came to discern as a special strain of Asperger’s Syndrome. What characterized it was a desire to avoid and prevent suicide whatever the cost. What stereotyped it was that everyone who had it was an ancestor of William the Conqueror.

He had given it to all his offspring, to secure their loyalty to him. He did it by killing all the indigenous males and tupping (raping, doggy fashion) females. They, in turn, gave it to their offspring, and so on, and so forth, to the early 20th century. By then, they owned and occupied most of the land surface of the planet.

The reason they colonized so much land was, they were invincible both in war and in peace. This was because they knew how to die for up to a couple of days at any time and, then, come back to life. This let them go back into battle or to govern in peace, again.

This trait stemmed from bloodstock experiments of rulers of the Indus Valley Civilisation. They wanted a steady and cheap stream of royal guards. They wanted them to be loyal, brave, intelligent, chivalrous, and invincible, in war. But also disloyal, reckless and gullible, in peace, to kill each other off. When they ran out of enemies to kill they turned on each other. When they ran out of each other, they killed themselves, by suicide or recklessness.

But, Vikings or Norsemen, to be more correct, had a bizarre capacity to die and come back to life. The myths of the Valkyrie women picking out dead warriors to bring back to life in the halls of Valhalla are legendary. This ability of warriors so impressed a King of France he gave a dukedom to a Viking to defend the whole of France for him. The guy's name was Rollo.

His dynasty passed the knowledge of how to die and come back to life, one generation to the next. One of his descendants by the name of William I inherited the dukedom many years later. He wanted a legacy to leave his second son, William II, for his first son, Robert II, would inherit the duchy.

So he conquered the neighboring England, across the English channel from France. He took it from Anglo-Saxons of Germany, who settled in England centuries earlier (Angle=Engle). He did it with the permission of the King of France and the blessing of the Pope of Rome. It was because the Anglo-Saxons were pagan heretics.

I know all this because I’ve been coaching and counseling all this stuff for years on behalf of a society founded by William for the purpose. So I charge no fees for doing so. PM me if you want details.
