I've read ten books on autism. I've done five courses on autism. I've talked to people...but my parents won't believe me. My mom said it's because I don't look autistic. They're not allowing me to get a diagnosis because "That's not how it works." Help??
I know that there is a higher risk of down's syndrome when your mum is 35+ and gives birth, I was just curious as to whether or not there is a risk of autism? My mum was 36 when she had me. Please don't think I'm blaming my mum! I love my mum to bits! It's more of a sciency question
It's really annoying that my mother won't let me have a meltdown when I need to. I don't have that many meltdowns but when I do she just tells me to get over it because "it's not that big a problem" or "what you're doing is not going to help anything" - she doesn't understand that firstly the thing that caused the meltdown is big to me and secondly that even if having a meltdown is not going to solve the problem it is still important to help me to cope with whatever had caused the meltdown. It's really annoying because sometimes I really need to have the meltdown in order to help me to cope with whatever had caused the problem but she doesn't let me and then the problem just gets all built up inside me until I've got a whole pile of big problems which becomes unbearable and then I have an enormous big meltdown which just goes on for days and days.
