    Doctor Prescriptions

    So, I took a bunch of tests showing it’s highly likely I am on the spectrum (it makes so much sense) and I sent the information to my doctor.

    His response was, “Lets focus on getting you feeling better first,” and prescribed me kolonopin.

    He’s an old, white southern guy and honestly very sweet but I was hoping for some more conversation about it. My anxiety is off the charts right now so I’m grateful to try something new but I did want to talk about autism, too.

    What are some questions I can bring to the table? Thanks

    A question for autistic people: What’s a well accepted symbol/emblem that represents the community?

    I’m an art student, and recently my brother requested me to design a tattoo for him. A tattoo that represents his relationship with autism/how autism is apart of what makes him. I’ve been careful and somewhat concerned about this, because most symbols that represent autism are frowned upon due to their history and what they’re associated with. I want to be informed as much as possible, and to want to do something acceptable and won’t be offensive to him or the community. #Autism #AutismSpectrumDisorders #Aspergers #question

    Has anyone with autism noticed their response to sensory stimuli never seems to be reduced?

    I have ASD Level 1 and live right behind a fire door that swings. Every time it swings, no matter how hard it hits, I have a meltdown without any build-up. It swung 7 times in 3 hours yesterday. I ended up leaving my apartment because I could no longer handle the constant noise. I read in the studies there can be poor habituation in autism or lack of it, which is the process by which your brain reduces your reaction to a stimulus when exposed to the same stimuli repeatedly. Has anyone else with autism had this problem?
