Medicine, psychology, technology and social change, have all been seen to by the dramatic and revolutionary minds of our time. Autism; once thought to be a terrible affliction of the mind, has branched off into many specific and very different classifications. Asperger's Syndrome, a so-called 'high functioning' diagnosis, has been refined and redefined over the years... but what do autistic people actually feel about the crossover between the medical textbooks and their real-life experiences? We have a problem. The statistics around the mental health and quality of life experienced by individuals with autism are severely underappreciated. There is a wealth of information and statistical analyses out there that show just how tragic a diagnosis of autism can actually be... but don't be fooled, this is may not be the result of inherent differences in biology and neurocircuitry. The word 'autism' comes with many prejudgements and expectations that are almost automatically retrieved from our brains when we hear it. Disabled, strange, vulnerable, the weird kid; these are all common things that many people would associate with the condition. Many people on the autistic spectrum do not believe they are disabled, many would never choose to be any other way. Autism is generally seen to be a list of sensory, behavioral and social difficulties, but it is also associated with a whole host of intellectual gifts, positive personality traits, and talents. Bullying, alienation, severe mental health disorders, unemployment, lack of support, anxiety, depression, suicidal thoughts and acts. These may just be simple words on a page, but one only has to do a quick internet search to find evidence for just a few of these unpleasant realities. The terrible truth is that assuming autism is 'BAD' thing, may be hiding the very real issues that lie below the surface. These issues lay silently in the dark, afflicting thousands of individuals both young and old without any discrimination, but the label. ▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬ Support via Patreon! - https://www.patreon.com/aspergersgrowth FOLLOW ME On Social Media ♥ - ☼ Facebook - Aspergers Growth ☼ Twitter - @aspergersgrowth ☼ Instagram - @aspergersgrowth ♫ THOUGHTY AUTI PODCAST Get it on: ☼ Apple Podcasts - https://podcasts.apple.com/gb/podcast/thoughty-auti-the-autism-mental-health-podcast/id1470689079 ☼ Spotify - https://open.spotify.com/show/6vjXgCB7Q3FwtQ2YqPjnEV ☼ Anchor - https://anchor.fm/thoughtyauti
