I’m writing this as I am curious. I’ve been doing research lately on Autism and actually stumbled a cross a quiz for parents to tell if their child could be autistic.
After reading a few things, I felt a few similarities, actually a lot of similarities of Autism to how I feel and portray a lot of things in life. With this being said I went ahead and took said quiz, my results were shocking but not kind of what I was expecting? My total was 33. 34 & up is “Autism Likely”. I took the quiz on multiple websites and received the same result each time.
So with all this being said, I’m asking people who are diagnosed with Autism or have a child/relative/friend with Autism, what is it?
I’ve read the explanation websites give about it, but I’ve also read what the website says about Paranoid Schizophrenia and half of it is true for me.
So I guess what I’m saying, I’m curios, I’m curios to know exactly how said Autistics go about their lives?
Should I be on medication or something for this? Should I talk to my doctor about this possibility?
I babysat one autistic kid in my teenage days and remember the child being just like any other kid I’d babysit. But I only babysat him twice, so I never really got to know the child, or see him at his “worse”.
Please, explain to me about autism.
