  1. Exactly it. I also found teachers to be very rude, and quite aggressive. A bit stupid, since there trying to teach us how to be well mannered sucessful adults. Funny how i left school, and then started to find all this ability, and talent. All school did was supress me. I don't agree with schooling.
  2. lol google search. Ihave no idea who that is.
  3. Have you noticed? We are all the odd one out. Therefore in a sence, we all conform perfectly.
  4. Thanks mike! I hope you all took something away from my story. I think at times when anyone talks about there experiences, it inspires others. and the amazing thing is, we are all capible of doing it. Glad you like the wolf too
  5. I can assure you i have nothing to do with this. The resason i locked that topic last night was not to 'show how powerful i am' it was to avoid something potentially harmful to our members. There are plenty of members out there (although meaning well) that say silly things at times and could have put a vunrablre member in danger. Anytime anyone mentions wanting to kill themselves that could open up pandoras box for all types of problems. All i've done so far is try to remind people of the rules (of which you clicked agree too) when you joined. I'm doing my job basically, and all these topics and comments make my job unbearable. the whole reason of pinning the rules to the general disscussion was for this very reason, so we diddn't have to do stuff like this, and that we could continue as normal.
  6. Thankyou to all for your feedback. I was in two minds wether to post this or not, but seems you all enjoyed it, so i'm glad i shared it with you all
  7. Almost certainly. The main problem was being in a class of 30. too loud, and way too many distractions.
  8. Ok i can't keep playing around with my profile picture lol. ben make up your mind boy!

  9. Best i got was a maths gcse at grade D. And that wasn't until i was 21.
  10. I might as well get this topic going again, I'm currently posting on a google chrome thingy. I broke my laptop beyond repair, but today, my mum's, boyfriend brought this one. And, no, i don't normally except handouts. i plan on working off the debt.
  11. Go for it anyway, you never know.
  12. That was just a reminder for everyone. It was a topic on sexual orientation, as contained in rule 4. I was merely reminding everybody, As topics like that can quickly turn personal. The topic itself is fine. No warning at all, i have no issues with you. Feel free to message me though if you want to talk about this, i'd rather do that, then fill a topic up.
  13. I do agree, if it was someone abusing there power. However, i am your friend, and respect you all, and would never do anything to hurt anyone on here. But rember, that someone has to enforce authority, and rather be someone you know right?
  14. Thankyou to all for your votes. It's a real feather in the cap. I'm still the same old warrior, just with special ninja powers. I will work with you, not against you, so please, anything you would like done, just send me a message.

    Hello sir, welcome back!
  16. Hope you enjoyed that. I don't know why i wrote it, i quess it was just stirring within me.
  17. At 5 i was diagnosed, the doctor said to my mother 'life for ben will be very difficult' She burst into tears. At the time i diddn't know why she was crying, or why i was even in this room with the doctor asking me all sorts of questions. I was a quiet boy, but if something went even slightly wrong, bang! i would go off like a stick of dynamite. Children in school realised this, and would seek to wind me up. So a usual day would go, me geting picked on, me losing my temper, me getting in trouble (in that order). I wanted to be a good boy, i wanted to get on, but the other children wouldn't allow that. I also attracted trouble makers, and naughty kids, as i was an easy scape goat, gullible and in need of friends. Although, it was down to this group of friends that i was diagnosed so early in my life, without them, my diagnosis would of been much later on. Life as a child was challanging. I'm not going to say bad, beacuse there is no such thing as a bad experience, just a learning experience. From 7 to 11 i had severe anger problems. getting wound up over something as simple as my mum buying the wrong flavor juice, or my mum cooking my dinner diferently. I did not go out unsuprvised, and i certainly did not have any sence of humor. i took to heart everything, and that equaled a tough realtionship with familly and friends. I was isolated from the world, i was locked up like a caged animal at lunch times, as the head teacher would not allow me to play out. i was setioned off from the rest of the class, and not allowed to communicate with class mates (but they were allowed to wind me up) I hated being me, i wanted to be someone else. 2002 to 2003 my mother fought to get me out of mainstream school. i was just about to go to year 8, and my mum was desperate to get me a place at a privte school. i was glad she diddn't. Though tough, challanging, and mortifiying, i grew as a person. In 2002, I moved to a new area, were street wise kids would play. I wanted to join in, but i was picked on, and again used as a scapegoat. But this again, allowed me to obtain street smarts as well, i was learning how they ticked, and how they would communicate. I observed them through my kitchen window, learning there body language, and mannerisums. I allowed them in the end to bully me. I diddn't care, i was learning and growing ever stronger. High school was also very tireing, i was again involved with a bad group, and i was bunking school, and being threatend with exclutions. my mother was sent a long list of my offence's (of which none were actully me) Including, spitting on teachers car, pulling fire alarms, setting off fire extingushers etc. I was blamed purley beacuse i was always in the wrong place at the wrong time. And being the typical scape goat, i always got the brunt of the punishment. Through exposure of the mainstream world, i continued to grow. Until eventully, i found myself amoungst the most popular group in school. And to my amazment, these guys actully had my back, and they were true friends. And to this day i still hear from them. All the years of being picked on and used, were worth it to be where i was. I had many years of fun and laughter with this group until i left college. In 2009, i decided to go to the next level and throw myself in the deep end, and get a job in a nightclub. I was extremmally scared of crowds, so i still don't know why i did it. But i'm not sorry. For the few months i was there i learned so many different social skills, and ways to communicate. I grew ever more confident, and The old me, was rapidly fading. through this new found me, i met a girl. She was a dazziling beauty, an indian girl, and a girl that was very found of me. We fell madly in love, and for the first time in my life i felt something, i actully felt love, and it felt so good. After 2 years together, we reached a rift. She was a traditional hindu, and came from an old school familly. I knew i was on borrowed time with her from the begining, but i lived in denial, we were going to get married have children etc, But that was never going to be possible. And eventully we split up. One of the hardest things ive had to deal with, yet, somehow i pulled through it, and found the forums. When i made my account, i decided to turn over a new leaf, i decided to turn every single negative force in my life and turn it into a possitive. So i chose a name suited to this, 'A-S warrior'. The name came into my head as soon as i saw the place. Iooked around, and saw nothing but negativity, I wanted to change that, I needed to change that, it felt like my destiny. I at this point regardless of my circumstances was always proud of my aspergers. It made me an in depth thinker, and a methodical machine like person. Things that bored most, exited me, So it wasn't that hard for me to find the words to post. My attitude to this day has not changed, but i have calmed down alot. The reason i am the way i am, is beacuse of the above. I was exposed to mainstream life, i took the punishment life delt out, i diddn't hide, i diddn't give up, and i always got back up when i was knocked down. I'm nothing special, every aspie has the ability to think like i do, That aspergers is an ability, and not a disability. It's only a disability if you let it become one. If your willing to roll over and quit, then all you can do is revel in your own negative thoughts. If you fight, and fight hard, you can be proud. You may lose the battle, but at least you lose with no excuses. You can say, 'i failed, but i gave it my best shot!' Ultimatley, if it means alot to you, you'll find a way, if not, you'll find an excuse.
  18. Better late than never lol. Merry christmas to you too.
  19. Congratulations, and for what it's worth thanks for the vote

We do not vouch for or warrant the accuracy, completeness or usefulness of any message, and are not responsible for the contents of any message posted on this forum. 3. The messages express the views of the author of the message, not necessarily the views of this forum. Any user who feels that a posted message is objectionable is encouraged to contact us immediately by email. We have the ability to remove objectionable messages and we will make every effort to do so, within a reasonable time frame, if we determine that removal is necessary. 4. You agree, through your use of this service, that you will not use this forum to post any material which is knowingly false and/or defamatory, inaccurate, abusive, vulgar, hateful, harassing, obscene, profane, sexually oriented, threatening, invasive of a person's privacy, or otherwise in violation of any law. 5. You agree not to post any copyrighted material unless the copyright is owned by you or by this forum. 6. Any posting that the moderators consider to be insulting, abusive, obscene or inflammatory (often known as flame baiting, flaming or trolling) will be removed immediately and the member warned, placed on restrictive posts or banned. In extreme circumstances we will report the poster to their ISP and ask that appropriate action be taken. 7. This forum is for the benefit of all of our members and all posts should be both polite and respectful to the views of other members. For the avoidance of doubt the moderators reserve the right to err on the side of caution and moderate posts which might be impolite or disrespectful to the views of other members. 8. Personal attacks on other forum members will not be tolerated. The moderators will intervene when a discussion starts to turn into a heated debate or argument. If the situation continues then the thread will be closed and hidden from general view without further notice and the offending member formally warned. 9. The use of swear words on this forum is not acceptable and the moderators will remove any such postings immediately. Please note that this includes the using @, #, * etc. to replace certain letters in the word. 10. Posts, or links to websites advertising commercial sales or services may be removed or edited by the moderators. If in doubt please contact a moderator before making the posting. The moderators will have the final decision as to whether a post is suitable. 11. Posts should refrain from identifying schools, organisations or professionals without having obtained the prior consent of the individuals concerned. For the avoidance of doubt the moderators will remove any postings where there is any doubt that prior permission has been obtained. 12. To prevent any possible Libel or defamation claim being made against the forum or individual members it is important that members should refrain from using brand names in their posts. Any such postings will be removed without notice by the moderators. 13. To protect yourselves it is important that members understand the risks of using an Internet based open forum. We strongly urge you to give serious consideration to the risks of giving out personal information, contact details, or meeting other members on this forum etc. 14. Image posting is disabled. 15. Any posted links to external sites will be checked and verified. If they are harmful to computers, or indeed to our members - they will be removed and the poster notified. 16. Members are asked to use the forum on a "single identity" basis. Posting under multiple identities is not acceptable, and where such activities are discovered members may, at the discretion of the hosts, be banned from the forum. If you have any concerns about a particular posting then please let the moderators know by sending an email to moderators@asd-forum.org.uk Alternatively you can send a PM to Matzoball, Merry, Sally44, Suze or Trekster. These rules exist to protect our members, and any action taken (editing, removing posts/topics) is not personal. Just to let you know, this forum is actively 'managed' by the hosts and our moderators (matzoball, Merry, Sally44, Suze and trekster) Depression, Mental Health and Crisis Support Depression and other mental health difficulties are common amongst people on the autistic spectrum and their carers. People who are affected by general mental health difficulties are encouraged to receive and share information, support and advice with other forum members, though it is important to point out that this exchange of information is generally based on personal experience and opinions, and is not a substitute for professional medical help. There is a list of sources of mental health support here: Mental Health Resources link People may experience a more serious crisis with their mental health and need urgent medical assistance and advice. However well intentioned, this is not an area of support that the forum can or should be attempting to offer and we would urge members who are feeling at risk of self-harm or suicide to contact either their own GP/health centre, or if out of hours contact NHS Direct on 0845 4647 or to call emergency services 999. We want to reassure members that they have our full support in offering and seeking advice and information on general mental health issues. Members asking for information in order to help a person in their care are seeking to empower both themselves and those they represent, and we would naturally welcome any such dialogue on the forum. However, any posts which are deemed to contain inference of personal intent to self-harm and/or suicide will be removed from the forum and that person will be contacted via the pm system with advice on where to seek appropriate help. In addition to the post being removed, if a forum member is deemed to indicate an immediate risk to themselves, and are unable to be contacted via the pm system, the moderating team will take steps to ensure that person's safety. This may involve breaking previous confidentiality agreements and/or contacting the emergency services on that person's behalf. Sometimes posts referring to self-harm do not indicate an immediate risk, but they may contain material which others find inappropriate or distressing. This type of post will also be removed from the public forum at the moderator's/administrator's discretion, considering the forum user base as a whole. If any member receives a PM indicating an immediate risk and is not in a position (or does not want) to intervene, they should forward the PM to the moderating team, who will deal with the disclosure in accordance with the above guidelines. We trust all members will appreciate the reasoning behind these guidelines, and our intention to urge any member struggling with suicidal feelings to seek and receive appropriate support from trained and experienced professional resources. Regards, The moderator and admin team
