Like Mike already stated, there are a LOT of members here on the spectrum. There's also people, like myself, who have children on the spectrum so heaps of people will be able to relate and help in some way. Take care
Hi Kira, Just come across your post and like you I am high function autism with terrible suicidal ideation. My feeling is there is an overlap with ADHD and RSD - rejection sensititve disorder. Particulalry if you internalise any feelings of rejection and low self worth
i think I am, I am very routine and everything has to be logical, I have to do the same thing every day at the same time, it could be more OCD then autisum but I do have autistic traits and a lot of them, if my routine gets thrown out then i go into melt down and struggle to cope and get my head around things!
I was diagnosed with Asperger’s at 15 when that was still in the DSM. Some people now think I have it, but others don’t. I want to think I don’t have it because my parents always used to use the diagnosis to try and control me, but it’s undeniable that I at least have traits of it.
