Top Ten Worst Things About Having Autismblst0033 I am slightly autistic(Not using it as an insult), and I hate it, look down to see why.
The Top Ten
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. - ethanmeinster
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.
Are you serious? One of my best friends since school is autistic. Everyone loves her! She has many, genuine friends. - Britgirl
That's why autistic people can get friends. They can be very nice! - Userguy44
I have friends, so...V 16 Comments
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. - Turkeyasylum
Applies to me. - Extractinator04
Depends on the situation. - Userguy44
I can be oversensetive sometimes, other times I am not though. It depends on the situation. - LunalaV 2 Comments
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. - Extractinator04
That's kind of true. I'm autistic and whenever my parents yell at me loudly/harshly for no reason I tend to cry.
Not me. I have the disorder and I almost never break down.V 10 Comments
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. - Stazemar000
Shyness isn't a bad thing. - Britgirl
I'm not shy. I just have trouble in social situations. (which is very common in autistic people)
I'm actually shy. Someone said to me that it it's actually cute and innocent. - Userguy44V 6 Comments
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. - RockFashionista
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? - AlphaQ
I tend to avoid most people I don't know. Only those I can trust could be considered friends. - Lunala
I feel like my friends and family secretly talk trash about my problems behind my back - Ihateschool
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. - RockFashionista
I think differently and NOT in a wise way. - Extractinator04
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
Yeah - Lunala
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. - Turkeyasylum
You don't have to fit in! Be yourself, it's way better, and more fun. - Donut
I will never be able to, no. I probably should shoot myself by now. - Extractinator04
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. - Extractinator04
People just think I'm the shy girl and don't suspect me having autism.
I dress in caps and sweatpants compared to popular girls wearing booty shorts as makeup so I have always had trouble fitting in with most girls. But I have always gotten along well with guys because they have always seemed to understand me a bit better. Yes, I am a tomboy. - Lunala
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. - Turkeyasylum
I believe (not tryin to be mean) that everyone is weird in their own special way
Whenever I make a joke I think is funny or something all anyone does is tell me to kill myself. - Extractinator04
People actually thought that I'm a weirdo. - Userguy44V 3 Comments
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 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. - Lunala
No, I cannot. - Extractinator04
I can my friedns
I do things right all the time, like, ahem, being awesome. - RockFashionista
I'm smart, but I do make dumb choices sometimes. Plus, I'm not a know-it-all, so I don't see why most people criticize me so much - Stazemar000
Sometimes I'm wrong, I'm smart but I admit I make dumb mistakes sometimes and I am not a know-it-all. - Lunala
Having a fear of making a failure. I have that sometimes. - Userguy44V 5 Comments
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. - Stazemar000
This is one of the biggest things of my autism. I hate it. - Userguy44
I don’t think this! I’m autistic but I know this kid who thinks he is a terrible person, even when he does the smallest mistake, and at first I thought he was going to die.V 1 Comment
True - Stazemar000
That's true. I wish I could just rob a gun and shoot myself in the head and get reborn without having autism - Unharmless
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. - Extractinator04
My family would be better off if I were never born. I'm nothing but an inconvenience.V 4 Comments
Yep. I never think before I act sometimes.
Yep - Lunala
True, I always think back about what I say, I do after I do them sometimes I am proud sometimes not ^^
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 :(
My brother and I have watched Toy Story and Incredibles ones. - Trollsfan536
YTPs are funny, though. However, they HAVE been getting worse as of recently. - Extractinator04
Non-autistic people like YTPs, too!
No. - Userguy44V 2 Comments
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 - Lunala
Should be number 1 - TeamRocket747
Yup. - Userguy44
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. - Trollsfan536
I can't mention them all. I have to many of them. - Userguy44
I always do four of everything. - Extractinator04V 1 Comment
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 - Lunala
Please tell me this is false. - SpectralOwl
Ironic because I am always considered the "shy smart girl". But some autistics do talk a lot. Others don't - Lunala
I used to never stop talking. Now I never talk at all. - Extractinator04
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 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 am autistic but this kid literally hits himself and wishes to die. I thought it was suicide disorder.
I've tried it way more than anyone else, honestly. - Extractinator04
About a week ago I tried to kill myself, but I chickened out.V 3 Comments
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 - Stazemar000
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. - Trollsfan536
I have trouble falling asleep after getting a lecture
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. - Trollsfan536
I wasn't actually forced into spec ed. - Extractinator04
Yes I'm autistic and no one understands becuase it's so mild they treat me like I'm normal
So much time wasted because of those
I had to go to therapy for years. - Trollsfan536
Yes that happened to me a lot and people are so ignorant
And they get embarrassed by it
I do. - Trollsfan536
Wow. Pretty harsh - Stazemar000
People call you horrible names as in the title ⬆️⬆️⬆️⬆️
That is so true - Stazemar000
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.
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. - Lunala
They are neutral with the other autistic kids but not me. - Extractinator04
I tend to get aggressive for no real reason. - Extractinator04
Everyone has anger. It’s normal. Parents just don’t understand that autistic kids have trouble controlling it.
That's kind of true - Stazemar000
My childhood dentist did this to me. I have a mild dental phobia because of my experiences :(
Autism is different from ADHD. - Extractinator04
They sometimes don’t work and they give you side effects and make you act weird.
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. - Trollsfan536
My high school special ed teacher thinks that we are dumber than 1st graders and forced us to do kindergarten worksheets.
Autistic people hate sudden noises, so ANYTHING could set them off and make them mad.
