  2. 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??
  3. 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
  4. Hi, I'm Denvermom7. I am Blacktiger911's Mom. I have been through it with him and we have a great relationship now. So proud of who he has become. I recently took custody of my grandson, just turned 11, and see some of the same behaviors in him. I know every person is different and there are many different symptoms within the same diagnosis. I was wondering if others with a diagnosis have symptoms like being excessively loud, very angry, "fair or justice" minded, revengeful, painfully shy in public, and contrary beyond belief. I would take him for a diagnosis, but I find they take what I say and run with it. There are other things that could explain some of his behaviors, head trauma as a toddler (I think he got 4 or 5 stitches in the back of his head), abandonment, broken home. I don't want him to be labeled, but I do want to help him develop empathy or even an ability to feel something other than anger or over excitement. Any thoughts?
  5. 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.
  6. Before learning about ASD, around age 18 I was really looking forward to having kids when I was older. After learning about ASD everything went down hill. I no longer wanted to become a mom because I didn't want my kids to suffer having ASD and the struggles that come along with it such as bullying, etc. I would prefer if an ASD mom/parent or if you know an ASD mom/parent to answer this post, but anyone is welcomed. How was your pregnancy and delivery? What is it like being a parent? What are some of the pros/cons? Anything that you'd like to add/anything you'd like to share is welcomed. I'm sorry for asking too many questions. I understand that this could be very personal. I'll appreciate any information.
