Re: What's one thing people dont know just by looking at you?
I look like a work-a-day guy; very casually dressed; overly muscled for his frame; far more handsome than I deserve to be

My private life looks nothing like what most assume it does. Most people look at me and think they have me figured out - they've "met guys like me before" - but they haven't.

I've travelled further than most ever dare to dream, and been more places than I can count, and I have never met another person like me. Ergo, neither have they.

I can control the atmosphere of a room.

When I am at my worst is when I attract the most attention from people.

Re: What's one thing people dont know just by looking at you?
a lot more are adults are ASD than are actually accounted for

only kids born after DSM-5 was released are diagnosed if they're observed during childhood
many still slip through though because they're
"not autistic enough" to get the parent's concerned


prior to DSM-5, anyone that wasn't "classic" ~Rainman~ etc. types of autism wouldn't be given a diagnosis
the diagnostic criteria was much more strict and rigid in DSM-III and DSM-IV

I'm spectrum, high function
but grew up while DSM-II - DSM-III was current
so no "official" diagnosis for me

they don't like to diagnose adults because many of the
diagnostic criteria must be observed during childhood
- the coping / compensation mechanisms we develop to compensate for the disability hinder accurate diagnosis

unless the "patient" is an extreme case with obviously consistent observable autistic behavioral patterns that can't be masked / hidden via compensation
they won't give the diagnosis


and that's the one thing
no one would realize looking at me
- high function ASD
until they try to interact and it all goes out the window
and without knowledge of ASD they still wouldn't know what it is they're seeing

Thank you. This is hardly ever said and understood.

I don't think it's wonderful.

One of the cruelest disorders.

Fortunate are those who discover, learn and better themselves.

Think of how many never knew and suffered a lifetime.

People seem to have a really hard time guessing my cultural heritage (except for other people belonging to the same cultural heritage).

Over the years I have been mistaken for a plethora of races, from Hispanic or Native American to Middle Eastern or Israeli and multiple others including mixed races.

Sorry folks, just a little Cajun gal who gets a dark tan in like 5 minutes in the sun!
