Default New To Autisim

So i was at a therapist about a year and a half ago and was told i most likely am an aspie. This is very confusing to me. I have questions but before i can get to them i feel a bit of backstory is needed.

I’m going to start at the beginning of my story. It’s not pretty has many missed chances along with it being a perfect story of those falling through cracks and may trigger some.

When i was a child my ped tried to get me into the glenrose, which is a place for kids to get diagnosed. My dad refused at every single turn. I cant blame him after the issues with my ADHD diagnosis. I got violent to an extreme on the medications they tried. Looking back i really wonder, but i digress. I had issues with being bullied, withdrawing (i always had a book and would rather do that then hang out with kids my own age) i would get along better with the younger kids or those in special needs which often lead to me being ridiculed and mocked. It got bad enough that i was chased up the backstop for the school baseball diamond by my classmates. The school board responded with “she has to learn to defend herself”

I moved schools, things got better for the most part. I still mostly hung out in my own little world. Having wild adventures and at times believing they really happened.

Yes, you could be an aspie. The only way to be sure is a proper diagnosis, though. I'm sorry you were bullied...

You could be on the spectrum, only a professional would know. Now Asperger's is technically considered ASD level 1.

Default Re: New To Autisim

So I’m my haste yesterday i forgot to ask my questions. Since i have no clue how to go back and edit here they are
Until i get a proper diagnosis I’m looking for ideas on things i can add to my tool box to help me get through to the specialist
Ways to handle going shopping and not being overwhelmed
Ways to handle the fact that i need a certain weight and be wrapped just right blanket wise
Ways to maybe cope with textures, mainly food. I love the taste of many foods but cant eat them a lot of the time because the texture sets off my gag reflex

Things like that.

Not sure about the shopping and food, but they do sell weighted blankets. I'm not sure how much they cost, but I hear they are very helpful for people on the autism spectrum.
