Top Ten Worst Things About Having AutismI am slightly autistic(Not using it as an insult), and I hate it, look down to see why.
The Top Ten
Actually I don’t get many friends they think I am crazy. This happens in EVERY school I went to.
I am usually able to get a few acquaintances, but it usually never goes well enough. I was actually invited to a high school party twice last September. However, after several incidents took place, I was forced to leave the group I'd been hanging out with for a year. Now, I feel as if I'm restricted from talking to random people, or I'd think that I'm too immature for them.
First of all that's not true. I have a lot of people who really good friends at school. And I have a super close bestfriend. And none of them are autistic.
During free time, while everyone else is talking to their friends, I just have to sit there bored to death. I tried making friends one time but got made fun of for being short.
I fully agree with this. Even I can be like this and I need to learn things.
I know many people with Autism who are oversensitive, but I try not to be. Words do hurt, but they don't kill on impact.
Honestly, I had ASD throughout most of my life, it was not good to feel oversensitive, but unfortunately I may have to live through this even though I'm on medication.
Applies to me.
Not crybaby emotional also I spelled emotional auto correct to pregnant
That's kind of true. I'm autistic and whenever my parents yell at me loudly/harshly for no reason I tend to cry.
We, as autistic people are much more sensitive, both emotionally and physically. Something that may be a slight annoyance or inconvenience for an NT can make an autistic person break down.
I cry all the time. Nothing wrong with it. Crying IS cleansing.
So, I've got this math teacher at my high school who I was really shy to talk to (and I still kinda am, but I'm trying to get that under control). Whenever I'd want to talk with him, my legs get all jittery, my palms get shaky/sweaty, and I get that butterfly feeling in my stomach, like I might throw-up or something.
Usually, after I talk to him, I feel a bit better.
Shyness isn't a bad thing.
I'm actually shy. Someone said to me that it it's actually cute and innocent.
I'm not shy. I just have trouble in social situations. (which is very common in autistic people)
Actually, I try to avoid making friends. It's too much work. Besides, I hate everyone in my school. Because they're all idiots and they're all plotting to murder me in my sleep.
Well if you met me I wouldn't murder and I know how you feel. It sucks doesn't it. In your opinion don't you think that's it's worse than getting a Math test?
I tend to avoid most people I don't know. Only those I can trust could be considered friends.
I feel like my friends and family secretly talk trash about my problems behind my back
That's not true! The only autistic person who does that at my school is Charles!
I think like a genius. Autistic thinking is way better than normal people thinking. You just wouldn't know 'cause you don't have autism.
I think differently and NOT in a wise way.
My family is Asian and whenever we get group pics taken with toddlers or babies the grownups make all sorts of weird and annoying noises to get the kid to pose for the camera. I know they’re not speaking it towards me or the older kids or the older adults but I have always thought that they were making the noises to try to get EVERYONE to pose for pictures, regardless of their age
Who ever said fitting in was the right thing to do? If everyone fit in, we would live a life of blandness and repetition.
There isn't a such thing as "fitting in". Nobody blends in, we all have something about us that makes us stand out.
You don't have to fit in! Be yourself, it's way better, and more fun.
I will never be able to, no. I probably should shoot myself by now.
Whoa, whoa. Calm down, old me. Will I ever fit in? No. Kill myself? NO. Remember, you'll probably have a better time fitting in than me, even if you're also autistic.
I don't want to fit in because then I'll be stupid, idiotic, dumb, and ignorant like the rest of this stupid world.
The only struggle I really face with Autism is the discrimination given from some people to me just because of my label. In reality, we're no different from everyone else, we're capable of the same things as non-Autistics.
Whenever I make a joke I think is funny or something all anyone does is tell me to kill myself.
I believe (not tryin to be mean) that everyone is weird in their own special way
I am autistic and I do random and weird stuff like ride fake horses and I'm proud of it!
You can communicate even if you are nonverbal, I promise. I heard of this method called RPM and it works my autistic friend used it. It took a while but now she can spell to me and I can finally understand her!
I hate this side effect. Even when I plan out everything I’m going to say and repeat it 20x in my head, I will either only get halfway through (before forgetting) or say something completely different.
I have trouble ording food and stuff but I am starting to learn now since I got the help I needed but I still feel shy sometime.
I'm autistic and my parents CONSTANTLY say this about me and IT IS NOT TRUE!
Whoever put this in is either low self esteemed or out of their mind
Sometimes I felt like this and I still do, although when I can actually can do things right.
I do things right all the time, like, ahem, being awesome.
It can be annoying to us sometimes, but my goodness, this kid like me in my school literally thinks everything is his fault. Every mistake anyone makes he literally blames it on himself. Even when I tried to say it was mine he disagrees with me! Always thinks the negative stuff, and I literally think he is somewhat someday going to kill himself for nothing.
I have autism and I always think everything is my fault.
This is one of the biggest things of my autism. I hate it.
No MY MOM thinks that everything is my fault
True, I can be hot-headed and I tend to lose my temper easily. I try to control it most of the time, though.
Geez some teens just never grow up
My brother and I have watched Toy Story and Incredibles ones.
I demand you report this list item, this is plain offensive
YTPs are funny, though. However, they HAVE been getting worse as of recently.
Non-autistic people like YTPs, too!
I’m autistic. Last year I went to a wedding in San Francisco. My relatives and cousins were all talking a lot to each other’sduring the tea ceremony. I had trouble saying hi to everyone because either I don’t know how to approach them while they were talking to others since I’m not in the right age range among them or everyone seems to not acknowledge my existence :(
Yep. I never think before I act sometimes.
True, I always think back about what I say, I do after I do them sometimes I am proud sometimes not ^^
First off that's called Identity Crisis and as a high functioning genius I don't like bumping into these, and I get through them within seconds.
My family would be better off if I were never born. I'm nothing but an inconvenience.
To the person who added this to the list:
How about tying a rope around your neck you failed abortion.
Damn, this list is more relating than I thought.
I am autistic but this kid literally hits himself and wishes to die. I thought it was suicide disorder.
I'm autistic and sometimes I feel that my life is also horrible but I am not suicidal. I just hope that things will come out more positively
I've tried it way more than anyone else, honestly.
About a week ago I tried to kill myself, but I chickened out.
Yes I hate special ed. Not only do I have to take it I also have a one on one aide. Like I hate myself because of it. It makes me feel completely different. And I'm literally the perfect child. And sometimes I feel like the expectations for me are a lot higher then the boys' because I'm a girl. There are kids who have mental breakdowns and some are super impulsive. Some never get there homework done. My grades are average but I have perfect reports and I'm literally everything I can. Like I've already brought this up and nobody cares. I don't get bullied or anything but I get so many judgemental looks. And literally half the schools knows I'm autistic because of her. Whenever she's there I just wish a black hole would swallow me and I could disappear forever.
I hated it. In high school, my special ed teacher was mean and tells me off for no reason all the time. She even yelled at the class once! Special ed should be illegal in my opinion. No autistic kid should have to deal with this kind of cruelty, especially because of everything that they have been through in their lives.
I'm autistic and I have to go to a special ed middle school inside a nationwide middle school an hour away from my house and part of being in the program is you can't even go to the bathroom alone. LAME.
I wasn't actually forced into spec ed.
I'm mistreated a lot and and some kids ask weird questions, and I just wish I was isolated and I think it's better for me to actually be alone because I like being alone!
This is why I don't like to tell people that I'm autistic, but I'm pretty sure everyone already knows. One person even told the whole class. When I was at public school, everyone liked to tease me all the time, because they all thought it was funny. Even worse was that since I was the only person out of like 140 students that had Autism, I was the only one that actually got made fun of.
I have been bullied but not for being autistic because people NEVER notice it. But I got bullied for being short once by this rude tall girl once
Should be number 1
I'm obsessed with baby paraphernalia, and I'm not even an adult baby or have any weird fetish of any kind! It's hard getting images of diapers and baby bottles out of my mind...
Sometimes, I eat the entire bag of parmesan Goldfish.
I can't mention them all. I have to many of them.
I always do four of everything.
Turning 15 soon I want a job and I am nearly legally old enough I try to tell my mum I might want a job and she says "Oh you hve autism so you'll have to wait because you're different". -.- I just wanna make some money so I can buy my own chocolate and snacks and cool stuff
Please tell me this is false.
So much time wasted because of those
I had to go to therapy for years.
I used to never stop talking. Now I never talk at all.
Ironic because I am always considered the "shy smart girl". But some autistics do talk a lot. Others don't
I have autism and I never ever stop talking its come to the point that ill black out. no one ever see me black out though I am always alone in the corner.
I'm a 16-year old girl with autism. It's pretty mild, so most people in my family don't say anything about it. I've had suicidal thoughts a few times before, much to my mom and dad's shock. I've had a habit of lying for no reason, and I say things that I wished I would've said differently. I tend to get irritated at small things as well. I forget things all the time, so one of my parents end up getting mad at me, even though most of the time, I don't do it on-purpose. Life is still not fair, especially for kids with autism. My mood still gets ruined
Autistic people aren't amazing just because of Autism itself (but Autism does make people awesome), but they as a whole are cool because they already know how to stand out. They shouldn't suppress themselves because society tells them, instead, they should be free to be themselves. If they decide to be themselves, then this world would be a better place.
Bill Gates, Dan Akyrod, and Albert Enstien have autism.
I have trouble falling asleep after getting a lecture
Yes I'm autistic and no one understands becuase it's so mild they treat me like I'm normal
That is so true
I get Brain farts whenever I learn math
I’m autistic and I have never hung out with anyone because my mom is overprotective.
I have no interest in dating whatsoever.
You know how Hercules feels like an outcast since he's different in the Disney movie? So do I. (I'm the only autistic person in the family). I'm still trying to find my sense of belonging in not only the family, but society as well.
Yes that happened to me a lot and people are so ignorant
And they get embarrassed by it
@Extractinator04-stupid teachers at my school district thought that I have ADHD when I am really autistic.
Autism is different from ADHD.
They sometimes don’t work and they give you side effects and make you act weird.
Autism is different then this. As autistic you are smart and have trouble in certain stuff, while adhd you get mad over dumb reasons and think it’s the end of the world.
Wow. Pretty harsh
People call you horrible names as in the title ⬆️⬆️⬆️⬆️
I'm mature enough to go to the bathroom alone, but you're forced to go with a teacher. To make matters stupider, I'm MIDDLE school, not preschool, kindergarten, or elementary.
My high school special ed teacher thinks that we are dumber than 1st graders and forced us to do kindergarten worksheets.
My dad never said that!
My mom thinks.
I'm autistic and I get picked last at EVERYTHING, not just gym...
What are qualifiers?
They have empathy
I do not want to be compared to that abomination. It's even worse when people who hate autism think that you (if you're a female with autism) and Chris-Chan should be a couple which is not right at all.
That hellspawn is pure awful. That evil gremlin is a disgrace to autistic people.
They are neutral with the other autistic kids but not me.
Or your just overreacting...just saying
I got over this when I was 1, and when you think, or done something wrong, even the smallest mistake, get ready for some self abased crap
I tend to get aggressive for no real reason.
Everyone has anger. It’s normal. Parents just don’t understand that autistic kids have trouble controlling it.
That's kind of true
