Top Ten Worst Things About Having Aspergers SyndromeI already made a list of Best Things About Aspergers Syndrome, so I decided to make a list of worst things.
The entries on this list are both based on facts and personal experiences.
I have Aspergers Syndrome myself, and I'm not trying to insult other people.
The Top Ten
I don't have Aspergers, (I'm just on the high end of the Autistic Spectrum) but almost all these really pop for me.
This is a reason why it's so easy for me to get influenced: I take a lot of things that people say, even jokes, literally.
This can lead to some unpleasant situations.
This is frustrating for me at times.
Baby talk makes my ears wanna bleed!
Loud music, little kid squeals, balloon popping, fireworks all suck. Also one time in a resturant I could smell gross cleaning chemicals and nobody else could. - Lunala
This means that you have very sensitive senses, which has positive, but also negative effects.
Like if there's a kind of food that really stinks in my opinion, I can smell it better and from a longer distance, and I can be sensitive to loud noises at times.
I'm super shy - Lunala
In my previous list, I said that people with aspergers syndrome are very talkative.
But not when they meet new people.
I don't really like becoming acquaianted, so when a person who is unknown to me comes over at my house, it takes a long time before I eventually interact with that person.
This can lead to a lot of misunderstandings.
I'm always afraid that when I do something wrong, that it can result in the ending of a friendship.
I'm misunderstood. Some people think I'm a bad friend because I prefer alone time and stuff - Lunala
When I was younger, and something changed in a routine, it leaded to some pretty frustrating situations.
Like when the teachers say we get to watch a movie but we end up not beif able to I meltdown. I try and control it but sometimes I Can't help it. - Lunala
Untrue in some individuals. I'm autistic and knowing this difference is easy.
Not a problem for me - Lunala
This isn't that big of an issue, but it is a bit unpleasant at times.
I don't have this a lot anymore, but I still have a bad handwriting.
Very, I say the wrong thing and then later find out I have unsalted that person or made them feel uncomfortable for whatever reason I said what I said. This all comes down to having Aspergers Syndrome and how I talk to people,...
Only sleeping problem is that I move around in my sleep (not sleep walk, just rolling around and stuff) and fall off the bed sometimes. Thankfully never happens in top bunks. - Lunala
Not all individuals have this, but I have this.
I often wake up too early and I have trouble returning to sleep sometimes.
This is a struggle of mine
This can be especially tough for individuals who are not fond of mainstream music, entertainment and other Neurotypical things.
