  1. Hi Peeps I've started my own Welsh language YouTube channel; Aspie Cymru. On it I will be discussing Aspergers etc. and my perspective on things which are associated with autism. Any posts I make about this channel will remain in one topic, as to avoid cluttering and confusion. Also, sorry for potentially posting this in the wrong thread, I wasn't sure which one to choose; couldn't find a dedicated thread/topic for posting such content - my bad if there is Anyway, this is my first video And this is the accompanying blurb Cynnig fi ar drio creu adnoddau Cymraeg ar gyfer codi ymwybyddiaeth o awtistiaeth yng Nghymru. Gobeithio fydd hyn o fudd i bobol. Unrhyw cwestiynau neu sylwadau? Gadewch nhw ar waelod y dudalen Diolch am wylio. Parch a heddwch x This is my attempt at creating Welsh language resources to raise awareness about autism in Wales. I hope that this will be of some benefit or comfort etc. to people. Any questions or comments? Leave them at the bottom at the page Thanks for watching. Respect and peace x It is important that resources are available in different languages (when possible) and that's one of the reasons why I have chosen to do this. It is not my intention to take over from anyone else or to "step on anybody's toes". There isn't anybody else "out there" doing this in Welsh, so I thought "why not?". So,I'm giving it a go.

  2. I started a petition on Change.org that I think everyone here can get behind. I was motivated to start this petition after reading this blogpost by Amy Sequenzia http://autismwomensnetwork.org/sharisa-joy-kochmeister-give-her-back-the-right-to-communcate/ Sharisa is a non-verbal autistic woman who lives in Colorado, USA. Earlier this year she was admitted to hospital after being unable to hold down food and losing weight. Sharisa communicates by typing and needs her father's assistance as an interpreter. While in hospital Sharisa's father was clearing some vomit from her mouth and Sharisa kicked him. A social worker saw it and assumed he must have been abusing her. She has since been removed from her father's care and denied her ability to communicate. She was then assessed as being incompetent and having an IQ of 47 because of her 'inability to communicate.' Next they put her in a nursing home for people with dementia and now she's in a host home, she's only been allowed to see her Dad once since then. I would like to add that Sharisa is college educated, is the former president of Autcom and is a renowned activist for autistic rights. To declare her incompetent and strip her of her basic human rights is a travesty. That poor young woman must be confused and terrified. Please sign the petition. Let's make Jefferson County listen to us and give Sharisa her voice back.

  3. This topic is actually in response to a post made by Echo in another thread but I thought it would be a good topic. She listed some things she takes with her. What do you take with you when you leave the house? It can be for any reason, popping in to town, going to a friends house, or just going for a walk. What do you feel you have to have with you to support your ASD? For example, my mum laughs at me because when I go to town I'll take my bag and she goes "what on earth do you have in there it weighs a ton!" and In there will be: Tangle/thumb stone: to help me stimiPod with big earphones: to shut out the world around me and keep me calm. Also stops strangers coming up and trying to make small talkNotepad: in case any writing/drawing inspiration hits Pen : see above Book of contacts : in case I lose my phone Mini torch : anywhere that's dark lol Samsung table t: usually for when I end up in a coffee shop and want to do some writingSunglasses: I'm very light sensitive so I will have these on me even in the winterI also have the essentials of course like phone, keys, wallet, chewing gum, umbrella, paracetamol, hairbrush and body spray. In the summer I'll carry suncream too. I will take these things even if I am just going for a walk somewhere. It's like I need my stuff. I couldn't possibly leave without them because what if I need them? Anyone else do this and want to share what they carry with them everywhere?
  4. I work in a movie theater and yesterday was a horrible day there. I normally act likable and "normal", but yesterday I felt depressed for some reason and acted like my regular self would and my facade cracked immensely. I was ushering/cleaning theaters with 2 other people, Tonya and Jacob, and they had been there for an hour or so before me and had been chatting. So I felt left out and was even more sad, which led to me being even more ostracized, it's was a vicious cycle. I was giving that girl Tonya some attitude because she's prettier and more popular than me and she gave me even more attitude back. And later on I'm pretty sure she was talking shit about me, she was standing with this guy Kyle and they were talking and when I got close they stopped talking, and Kyle kept looking at me awkwardly and Tonya was all quiet. Then I think Kyle and Tonya were talking to everyone else because everyone was like awkward, and as I was leaving my shift, my one ally at work, David, half jokingly and half seriously said that I have to be nice to him since he's the "only one that actually likes me". And I was gonna investigate the matter, but decided not too. I literally felt so outcasted, I felt like crying at that moment because now nobody likes me at work. I only have 2 acquaintances and 1 friend, David, at work, but even he isn't that good of a friend with me since he watched a movie with Tonya and I never did anything outside of work with him, and he has a girlfriend but still hung out with her and not me. I work next tomorrow for 6 hours, and I am not looking forward to it. Hopefully I can get more info tomorrow with some allies because I feel like quitting since nobody likes me, but I'm not gonna give up or surrender. However, I am close to breaking, an hopefully a glorious dawn awaits... P.S. I referenced "Galaxy Quest" and Stephen Hawking in this post
  5. Out of curiosity: *What do you currently have in your area peeps; in regards to autism services in general? *What would you like to see in your area (want or need)? *Or what do you think will be most beneficial to you personally? *Are there any other thoughts or issues you can think of regarding the topic of services? These questions go out to everyone here! Could you please let me know (if you want to) the answers to these questions via PM? Thanks - much love xxx If I can get a project that works, I am happy to share the "model details" with others so that you can do the same (set up an initiative), if you wish to My motto at the moment is; "help one person, help humanity" I will of course; encourage everyone I meet to join Asperclick! The best community on the web I have already received very informative replies; which are brilliant. Thanks to those who have already participated.
  6. Okay, so when I was a kid I used to play by myself, sometimes with dolls, and I would have elaborate situations and characters, but I would be every single character. And my play situations would be crazy weird like I would be blind, deaf, or a drug addict (I would pretend the "smarties" candies were pills) or that I was being mind controlled or switching bodies. Sometimes I would recreate movie or show scenes in my play,and all or most of the dialogue would be in my head. I knew it wasn't real, so I'm not schizophrenic or anything lol. But, I don't really recall playing with that many other kids, other than my siblings and cousins, I think we would play pretend but it would be like cops and robbers or something like that. I got mad when I would play games like tag with other kids since I would always be "it" and be chasing people, and it just stunk. My mom claims she had my play pattern as a kid too, but I don't think she understood what I was describing. Anyways, have any of you played liked this?
  7. I found out through this movie called Dear John. In the movie, the main character's father has AS. I had heard of Autism before, but I didn't really understood it. I didn't know there was a milder version of it either. The way it was defined mainly was broad and one of the main things was "not making eye contact." I didn't connect Autism back to me before because I'm pretty good with eye contact and overall was social. When I first started researching Autism, I came across Aspergers, but the way it was defined in wikipedia didn't really describe or make sense to me. It wasn't until I researched further and read different stories of girls with it that I finally diagnosed myself with Aspergers. How did you find out?
  8. How are you when showing gratitude when receiving gifts at times like your birthday and at Christmas? Do you always say thank you for the gifts you get? Or is it something you always mean to do but never get round to doing and want to do better this year? And what about those guilt-invoking times when you receive something mega from a friend you only got a small token gesture for, or worst still nothing at all?!? Do you pepper them with kisses flinging your arms round them and thank them to the ends of the Earth or do you disappear for a time while you come up with a plan to pay them back some how? And what about those times someone buys you something you don't like? Do you tell them you hate it? Or do you smile appreciatively and thank them for such a marvellous gift?
