Thread: Autism and the AB inside us

  1. #1

    Default Autism and the AB inside us

    Firstly i do not wish to offend anyone with this post.. Please take it as interest and nothing more.

    OK, i may be going out on a limb here, but would like to hear from others pertaining to this..

    i have just been reading older posts, and it occurs to me that a lot of AB's are somewhere on the autism scale.. Now don;t gt me wrong, i know some of you are also not on the scale, im not *never been tested.. however

    when i was a kid, i had a lot of issues, that honestly could be associated with autism, I used to repeatedly bang my head on the wall, I am highly intelligent, i get fixated on something and nothing else. in all honesty i probably am autistic, but it has never been tested..

    how many of you are in the same boat, did you do stuff as a child that could be constrewed as autistic.? this is just a simple question. it was just something that popped into my head..

    One moire thing, i found this
    its not be all and end all, but it give you an idea, I scored 23 which puts me within the autism spectrum.. Give it a go.. if you wish..

    I wonder sometimes if my autism has something to do with my AB/DL side. I have liked diapers since my teenage years, and I guess my immature side has something to do with it.

    I am wondering if autism is a leading factor in the AB life.. maybe someone could prove me wrong, by sitting the test, and not falling wihtin the spectrum.. PS.. this applies to AB's not DL's lol

    Hope this doesn't offend anyone but descriptions of autism always seen kind of vague. It is currently classified as part of ASD, autism spectrum disorder. As a spectrum it has quite a range regarding the severity of symptoms, primarily dealing with the ability to interact socially. On one end of the scale is what I would call acute autism, where a person is unable to become reasonably self supporting due to an inability to socialize properly. On the other end is what I would call normal, where a person has some degree of social awkwardness, or some mildly neurotic behavior patterns, but functions effectively in society. The range is so broad it seems that people who are not on that scale are the exceptions.

    Hi drifter,
    Yes there are two variations on the scale, it is the second variation i am interested, is the ab side of us part of being autistic.

    People have tried for years to find out what causes us to be AB's and have come up with many deciding factors, however is their actually one more common denominator, are we all autistic, if so then that would go a long way to finding out why we are the way we are.. i may of course be completely off course here.

    We've had this discussion several times in recent months. ADISC members are a self-selecting group, therefore you cannot assume that people posting on ADISC are representative of the "average" AB/DL. It may well simply be that ABs on the autistic spectrum are more likely to seek to interact with other ABs, because they have fewer inhibitions, while neurotypicals are more closeted. Speaking for myself, I'm fairly sure that I have a mild case of Asperger Syndrome, but I don't think it had any impact on the development of my AB/DL predilection.

    Well I took the quiz and got 18 Autism possible. But I have to say being in AB mode does help calm me down.

    I am not tested with autism! I have ADHD and autism does run through my family a little! I sometimes think I might have autism because first like I said runs through my family and also I have a hard time socializing! One I get comfortable around someone and get to know them I do t stop talking! But sometimes I have nothing to say at all at all!!!!!!!!!! There are a few more things but IDK if I'm a little autistic or not but I always wonder myself!

    I myself do have Autism plus Cerebral Palsy.
    I got diagnosed late in life with respect to my mild autism.
    I have always been very socially immature as an adult.
    Lately, there has been a few conversation threads related to Adult Baby Behavior and Autism.
    I do not see much of a link/correlation with this.

    It's calming the stimulus from nice soft fluffy items, diapers, pacifiers. It all helps with over stimulation. (Aspergers)
