Hey Guys, what do you think about this woman's take on disability? Do you think it applies to those with ASD?
Wise Guide from TED Talks
"I am not here to inspire you. I am here to tell you that we have been lied to about disability." - Stella Young
Stella was an inspiring journalist and comedian — and the reason why wasn't her disability. Watch her hilarious takedown of the Internet's obsession with "inspiration porn." ... See MoreSee Less
It can apply to any disability.
love ted talks used to watch a lot of the things aired when in college. There is a lot of good stuff on there. But yeah I like her pov she makes some good points. Disabled people are still people, so I think anyone that is disabled should be treated the same as others.
Did you know that if you text 741741 when you are feeling depressed, suicidal, or just needing someone to talk to, a crisis counselor will text with you? Many people do not like talking on the phone. Spread the word.
It's a free service

Do they have an online chat? asking for a friend who is hearing impaired...
In the UK text 07725 909090. It's a free service run by The Samaritans
Samaritans dont always answer the phone either, so it may because they are busy, texting may be a way of them chatting to more than one person at a time or it may be an automated texting service..
I've used this service. It is a text only conversation, but was very helpful to me

I'm currently seeing someone that I am fairly certain has asbergers. I worked with children with autism etc. It has never been diagnosed but from the material I've been reading I'm pretty sure. I guess I just need someone to talk to do I can better deal with this and know what to expect and how to help him.
Hello! Does anyone have a recommendation for a doctor in the San Francisco/Oakland Bay Area? I have an adult child with seeking counsel
I don't think it's active but I've found several books about adult Asbergers (AS). Seems the adult with asbergers is only fairly recently being studied. You can text me at 440 812 6163 if you would like and we can talk more.
from Liz Gilbert's post on MERCY:
"And for those of you who are in battle against yourself (the darkest war of them all) I send you my softest blessings. I saved you for last, because I know that you are suffering the most. I know you, my sweet friend, who hates yourself so much. Trust me: I KNOW YOU. I know how hard it is for you to get away from your abuser — because you ARE your abuser, and you are also the abused. I know you, because I HAVE BEEN YOU — and sometimes, at very difficult moments, I STILL AM YOU. So listen to me, my sweet suffering friend, who is so deeply familiar to my heart. Here is my Christmas gift for you. Here is my prayer:
May you finally drop the knife that you are holding to your own throat. May you cease the endless waves of argument against yourself. May you throw away that thick file of evidence you've been collecting for years about what a garbage person you are. May you stop manufacturing your own ferocious, loud, and incessant brand of life-destroying propaganda. May you exchange self-savagery for tenderness. May you learn how to replace perfectionism with empathy. May you soften your heart toward itself, so the poor thing can finally heal. May you forgive your past. May you forgive your present. May you forgive your future. May you take refuge at last in the peace and transformation that can only come from forgiving literally everything about yourself that you believe is unforgivable. May you see yourself not as YOURSELF, but as an exhausted stranger lost in a foreign land, who needs a place to rest. May you find that place of rest — at last — in mercy."
