3 Stages Of Understanding One’s Own Invisible Disability It is not always easy for someone with an invisible disability (ADHD, Autistic Spectrum, Learning Disabilities, & so forth) to understand that we have an Invisible Disability. If you are a parent it is tempting to force movement from one stage to The stages are 1. Not being able to understand that we have a disability. This not mean we don’t have a diagnosis. It means that despite having struggles we can’t conceive the idea that we have a disability. 2. Denail/Defense. This is the stage where we understand we have a disability, but remember a very hurtful past, or in some cases might be going through a very low. 3. Is acceptance of the fact that we have a disability and the help and support being offered. There is also the disappointment that that help and support would have never been useful.
Depression Kills Why We Keep it Bottled Up (Rant). Sorry for the camera shaking near the end. This is not the first time I have talked about mental health issues. However, it has been a while. Recent events in the world both positive and negative have put me in a position that I fell I need to talk about them more. Mostly the Mauro Ranallo documentary (which at this time I still have not seen) and Kate Spade’s passing. Depression kills and just because you have success and comfort does not mean that you can’t have depression, or that its effects can’t get to you. We often keep our depression bottled up. We keep it bottled up because when we do open up. The response we get is often being more attacked than helpful. We often wind up being more frustrated and feeling more alone than before opening up. Too many people assume that having success and comfort means you can’t be depressed. Success and comfort certainly help. However, they do not prevent depression. Depression often goes hand and hand with other mental health issues. There is often a feeling of isolation that comes with ADHD, Autistic Spectrum issues, and other Learning Disabilities. This often leads to depression. The life expectancy of those of us who live with depression and other mental health issues is much shorter than those of you who don’t. I do not want to be a part of that statistic. Mental health is an important and personal issue for me. However, I am also trying to run a YouTube Channel. I would like to do more happy videos like my cosplay photography. I kind of fell guilty about asking but Please Subscribe. Every little bit of support helps.

Why I’m Investing In Cryptocurrencies My Autistic Spectrum/ADHD/Learning Disabilities Experience. This is not and should not be mistaken for an investment video. am simply sharing my perspective on why I have chosen to take a risk on cryptocurrencies. As a person who deals with Autistic Spectrum issues, ADHD and other Learning Disabilities For many people on the Autistic Spectrum, or who have ADHD and other Learning Disabilities. The opportunities that exist for our Neurologically Typical peers on the job market. Both in gaining employment and advancing within the job. Do not exist for us. Therefore I am always looking for something that might help me out in some way or another. So I can ideally support myself, and truly stand on my own two feet. are cryptocurrencies the answer? The truth is that only time will tell. They are a pretty new thing (wikipedia lists 2009 as Bitcoin’s start date). There is an element of risk in every investment. I have some stock investments, and worry about a stock crash as much as I do a crypto crash. To put things into to put things into perspective . From all the research I’ve done stocks and most other investments return 10% a year. Bitcoin as of writing this is up 767.63% from last year. Litecoin 3050.74, & Ethereum 8311.06% (source https://www.coinbase.com/charts) . While past performance does not necessarily indicate future performance. For me and the situation that I am in my life. I fell it is worth the risk to put some of my money into crypto.

The Good Doctor and The Portrayal Of Autism In TV & Movies. The Good Doctor is a new show on ABC. About a young Autistic doctor. It seems that every portrayal of autism in television and movies fallows The Rain Man Trope. The Good Doctor appears to be no different. However this is not the whole picture of what means to deal with autism. Some of us aren’t savants. We are not a socially awkward genius. We are not doctors, neuroscientists or something like those jobs. A lot of us struggle with math, language and science, and have very limited employment opportunities. There is nothing wrong with showing characters who are autistic savants, but I would also like to see more autistic characters who aren’t. Characters who struggle with trying to keep a minimum wage job, and or fell trapped in a bad one because they know they are going to have a hard time finding another job.

The Reality Of No One Is Judging You Just Go For It My Autistic Spectrum:ADHD:Learning Disabilities Experience.
Have you ever herd someone say something like “No one is judging you. Just go for it” ? This is much more likely to be true if you’re Neurologically Typical (someone who doesn’t deal personally with Autistic issues, or any other Learning Disabilities) Than if your not. It’s likely that you’ve been bullied for being awkward and different, and mocked for trying things to improve yourself. The result of all this is to push us to be even more reclusive. People like myself have enough issues with social skills as it is. We don’t need more obstacles.
