What quotes would you give about Aspergers - your own or other quotes
What have others said to you about Aspergers?
The more I know people the more I like animals (or something like that!)
"But you don't LOOK autistic!"
So should I have purple skin? should my knees bend backwards?!
With regards to things said to Autistic persons concerning Autism, also have a gander at this link to ASPERGER UNITED (if it works):
"we're all a little bit autistic" ... used as a dismissive fob off etc
“Well I do that too” or “you can have anything once you google it” or “ maybe you should stop researching it as it keeps upsetting you” and” I reckon that’s what i’ve Got then”.
And the most recent said to me” I have a friend with autism he has to finish whatever he is saying no matter what”.
I am quite frankly fed up trying to explain at work,they all seem to think I have researched it to much and made it fit,when I tell them who the real me is they look shocked. I actually started shaking the hand of men I had worked with for years and saying “how do you do,I am xxxxx by the way”.
I then give them a hug if I feel like it, great seeing them freak out Lol.
i am Being me after fifty five years of acting. Phew hard work and a long billing.
if you had a penny for every time that was said?!
“Well I do that too” and” I reckon that’s what i’ve Got then”. yeah, I get that.
Or when I told the first aid instructure I didn’t want to see the upsetting video of a real life saving event captured whilst life guards were filming on Bandai beach australia.
i had seen it before and it hurt me so much.
she said that’s ok but why? I told her I had deep feelings! And that I was going through a difficult period with my true feelings and ability to control them,She said “ ah bless” I just wanted to shout at her for being so patronising,
I also asked to be excused from watching another one at a health and safety session.it was the footage of the hills borough disaster, I still had bad thoughts of it when I saw it as a youngster. The instructor this time was ok and guessed I was old enough to have witnessed it back then on tv and press coverage. I was the only one of a class of thirty. I got a lot of sideways glances when I came back in though.
One of the things nts say that really annoys me is,, 'we all feel like that, just get over it'. This is said especially by managers as if there was a switch we use to turn our autism on. And another one is 'we are trying to help you and you are not putting in any effort to try yourself'. No understanding at all!
Good grief! Diversity and awareness training in much need there!
