My psychologist was reading to me out of the DSM or doctor book schizotpal personality because that is what she would think i had but i am not the psychaitrist diagnosed bpd and I don't think that is right because he has only meet me once. He has only my psych record and notes to look over. So what I am saying is that she read out under Schizotypical in the DSM that mild Aspergers and autism go along with it or that there are very similair traits or co existing. She said I am an enigma but and she believes I have a PD and thow in autism.
She has know me alot longer than the psychiatrist. She doesnt think I have Aspergers though just autism and i cant get away from PD diagnosis because the Forsenic psych said that, she strongly suspected and now the Psychiatrist has diagnosed as being Borderline personality disorder and i hate it. I'd rather be just Aspie anyday.
Like i said to my case manger Your saying there is something wrong with my personality and I dont like it. It offend me and then she'll go 'well this is what you have learnt' or we like to call them 'traits'. Last time i saw her I go i wanna be taken off case managment and 'you dont want to see me no more and I said I dont need to and then she explain all the difficulites like in the future. She just makes stuff up. She thinks i am an idiot. Last time i talked to her she goes and you can become psychotic too or along them lines and she wasnt acting so nice. People dont have no respect for people with mental illness. Not even my own mum has respect
She tries and I think just dont bother. This is crushing me and it isnt who I am
All I wanna be is an Aspie
I just want to be an intelligent aspie and act sophisticated and wear glasses.
I wouldnt define Aspergers as a disbility in high functioning people. Like they are some of our most intelligent people in society. I guess it depends how severe you have other symptoms like anxiety and depression. You could have a gifted IQ but not be able to handle your anxiety and therefore never become as successful as you otherwise would have been. I have meet people with severe Aspergers and yes DEFINETLY they have a disability.
