experience with therapist

hi everyone,

I am very concern the way i am being treated by my specialist as I felt they are forcing to adapt the normal enviroment and i am very traumatizing. I had been hurting myself alot these night with lots of bruises and cant sleep due to the depression.

my specialist had been forcing me to put down my special interest in disney characters, fairy tale and costumed characters and adapt the mainstream enviroment. they even force me to interact with someone I don't like (my peers). My peers loves things like sport and watching television whcih i don't like. 

In my world, i like playing with the children and we play together around my area with toys and dolls. the reason i like interacting with the children because they share interest like me. but my specialist is forcing me not to hang out with them because of age difference eventhought no one mind about it. their parent don't bother about this and no one care about this. but they still force me not to hang out with someone who shares interest like me while interact with someone don't have interest like me. they are doing this to me because of my age and i feel like they are bullying me. 

i am very traumatized but no adult are listening to me as they all are on my specialist side just because this lady is a therapist. if i talk to my parent about it, they will punnish me for not being greatful to my specialist. I have no one on my side. I need help.

I am being forced to adapting an enviroment that i don't like. I am very very traumatized.

Does anyone here is on myside and think it's okay of what i like to be doing as i need help.

reminder i am someone at my very late teen.

  • just want to know why autistic people need social norm and age appropriate?

    So that the small amount of autistic people in society are able to get along with the massive amounts of non-autistic people by way of following societal norms, and so that children do what is appropriate for children to do in terms of involving less responsibility, and adults do what is appropriate for adults to do as involving more responsibility.

    why is the mainstream world so nasty and a *** to bully our autism like that. age inappropriate friendship and interacting with children are against the law. what the f*** with this statement. that's not the reality world we are living in. my therapist always say that and nearly make me want to b*** her to d****. what a b**** therapist. 

    is this the way she bully an atusitc person. 

    The mainstream world is so nasty and people bully others because like yourself they are still learning to be considerate of others differences and behave peacefully and respectfully.

    well i am going out and play with the kids and is not against the law, and anyone of any age can accuse anyone of doing something so just because of that will you be a coward and isolate yourself? 

    Appropriate interactions with children are not though as you state against the law, but making accusations of cowardice is defamation of character and misappropriating autistic people’s need for solitude to act on your behalf is discrimination ~ which is therefore against the community rules, the 2010 Equality Act and thus also the law.

    and why did some of you siding with my therapist. i thought this forum will help me but it did not for here. even traumatizing me more. saying inappropriate age relationship to an autistic person who find playing with children comfortable. well i'm not disgusted from someone same age as me as i hate them. i am being forced to adapt their world and my world had been taken away.

    We are not siding with your therapist but are instead attempting to help you understand what you have been told and to comprehend what it relates to and why.

    can you tell me why it is inappropriate for a grown autistic boy interacting with children eventhought they are just friends. i found this very agist. 

    Is it not though ageist to hate people the same age as or even older than you ~ whilst seeking the company of younger children?


    Regarding though the inappropriate age relationship thing: the human body more generally starts producing reproductive hormones at about the age of 11 (testosterone for males and estrogen for females), which results in scents and oduors (called pheromones) that effect the psychological and physiological behaviors of members of the opposite sex to be more aggressive (as is normally but not always the case for boys to get the girls) or more submissive (as is normally but not always the case for girls to get the boys) ~ all for the sake of having sex and babies.


    The vast majority of people (most particularly of course children, teenagers, and young adults) do not realise or even have a clue about how much hormones individually and pheromones collectively control the things they do violently / sexually ~ until that is mistakes have been made involving rebellion, vandalism, injuries, deaths and cautions or convictions, and accidents have happened involving pregnancies, miscarriages, abortions, c-sections, adoptions and all that sort of heart break and distress.


    So that is the reason for the concern regarding the question of inappropriate age relationships ~ and why everybody is included as being more or less of a consideration, and that is also why greater concern is generally shown for those who are most at risk ~ such as amongst others vulnerable children and young adults on the spectrum.
