My voice is really quiet when I speak. People don’t hear me the first time nine times out of ten. I feel like I’m yelling and people still barely hear me. I’m shy and sort of autistic. Help?

Attention getting touch is weird for me, im far more comfortable giving and receiving a slight wave in the field of vision of people im attempting to communicate with, i find it’s less discomforing to the largest number of people

ugh.

Chicago Municipal Code (wasn’t repealed until 1974)

"No person who is diseased, maimed, mutilated or in any way deformed so as to be an unsightly or disgusting object or improper person to be allowed in or on the public ways or other public places in this city, or shall therein or thereon expose himself to public view, under a penalty of not less than one dollar nor more than fifty dollars for each offense."

Side and back entrances are just a new form of this fyi

Penn State moves ADA parking to 2 miles away from stadium on game days: 'I was so disgusted'

i-need-that-seat:

THIS IS DISGUSTING. They provided shuttles, but most of them weren’t accessible (no wheelchair lifts, or those that had them didn’t have proper strap-ins for the chairs). Super unsafe, probably illegal, and just downright wrong.

winglssdemon:

Sometimes, I have this totally ridiculous dream where disabled people can get into every store and every home without even thinking about it

without searching for the accessible entrance, because they’re all the accessible entrances

and that disabled people don’t lose friends because disability is considered a totally normal thing

and people aren’t total douchebags about it 

and disabled people could actually live their fucking lives

Disability Thinking: What's To Be Done?

disabilitythinking:

Meanwhile, what’s to be done with the teens who did this? What’s to be done with anyone who does anything like this to an intellectually disabled person? In situations like this, finding the right balance between punishment and education is much harder than usual. I want desperately to do both to the full.

Alright, I want to do a poll

In about two weeks I'm finally going to a psychiatrist for a possible ASD diagnosis. Tips? Thoughts? Suggestions? <3 you're lovely

Anonymous

Hi, i don’t have ASD so I’m not too qualified to speak to that specific situation (i bet some followers can help), but i have lots of psychiatry exp…

Tips:

Try to be well rested, i know it’s hard for me to sleep before important stuff, but it’s important

feed before you go, an empty tummy can cause discomfort and distractions

Be as prepared as you can be for your appt. I try to pickup intake paperwork, and register my insurance/payment situation beforehand because forms in public can be stressful

Be prepared for the doc possibly giving you a different diagnosis. The dsmv and previous experience can bias docs either for or against self diag or certain diagnosis’ in general. Also, self diagnosis can be slightly off the mark, and a doc can help with a more accurate answer
