Top 10 Things That Happen After You Get Diagnosed with AutismFretto I'm Fretto & I got diagnosed with autism yesterday.
The Top Ten
I wasn't shocked. Actually, I knew there was something not quite right for a long time. Maybe it had to do with my weird little-kid habits exceeding to middle school or my weird and awkward personality. - Copenhagen
Did you really get diagnosed? Or did your parents know about this since you were 2 or 3 years old and not bother telling you until now?
Yes, I really got diagnosed. My parents didn't know about anything. - Fretto
I was shocked because I'd never expected to have autism. I've always known I'm different to other people but this was really shocking. - Fretto
Parents are even more shockedV 1 Comment
Example: Why you got in trouble for saying the wrong thing in a certain situation & why it wasn't as nice as you thought. - Fretto
Family members understand why being in a restaurant is torture because it's too loud. - Fretto
You get supported to find a job which works for you. - Fretto
I went to therapy and it made me feel like a baby, so I quit going. That and the therapist got mad when she forced me to eat a raisin (I hate fruit) and I accidentally spit it into her bra. - Copenhagen
The people who work there want to help you - Fretto
I went years ago ever 1-4 weeks and all we did was talk about my life and what annoys me and what I can do to deal with it (eg. tell relatives that baby talk is annoying and request them to stop). I tried those techniques but my mom didn’t approve of them despite the fact that they actually work. It’s pointless and a big waste of my time and life. DON’T GO!
I felt really bad for a long time because I didn't know why I got so often misunderstood, disliked & also bullied.
Now I know it. It's not a reason to bully someone. There is no reason to bully someone. - Fretto
Maybe dealing with lot's of strangers (as example doctors) you don't know & much more. - Fretto
This is very important. I don't want to be completely changed just because of my autism. - Fretto
I don't take mine, I refuse to be drugged because I'm different - Copenhagen
I am against them. I took them in elementary school, and I suffered from side effects that I still experience today, despite the fact that I stopped taking them over 10 years ago.
I will 1 day take legal action and sue these drugs! I deserve compensation for my suffering! >:(
