I have autism as well, and I don't have a gift. Just a problem with people.

I have autism with a hint of ADD. I get flattered if someone says I'm "special", but I think it's something that I wouldn't let go to my head. I mean, you are free to believe that you can be a sweet person with a unusually special talent, but boasting and showing off doesn't neccesarily make you seem special.

You use your "gift" as an excuse to treat people like crap. 
Just because you have a disability, doesn't make you better, or any different. And if you treat people terribly, don't expect them to be nice to you because you have some form of autisim or aspergers.

A friend of mine has aspergers, and guess what, she isn't "so lucky". She goes around with delusions of being gifted and then asks me why everybody around her is better adept than she is.

maybe that's because you haven't been able to see the positives of autism yet. i know you aren't contempt with yourself right now, but you'll grow out of that one of these days. it's a stage.

you should stop dwelling on the negatives so much. you're going through a stage of self-hate. but you'll get over it, you'll likely see yourself in a more positive light. looking at yourself the way you do right now won't do you any good. trust me, it's not a good thing.

you should try to see the positives autism gives you. you're going through a stage of not being proud, or at least contempt, with yourself, but one day, I bet you will be.

it was recently discovered that i have Asperger, or at least it's almost Obvious that i have it. and i must say, for me, i go into extremes, on the one hand, i can speak 2 languages fluent, can read very fast, and can write nice texts and am very creative, on the other i suck at math, and the way how i write letters and all are Horrible!

i was never considered dumb, everyone agreed that i was a smart person, but nobody, NOONE, in my school even thought about it that i may have asperger-autism, and then i have a emotional breakdown at my last internship, and because the boss of the place also has a kid with autism, it was FINALLY discovered, and that was AFTER i finished school!

my mother always told others that i was "different" and knew that i have something,but not what. and send me to therapists and all, but as i said, no one cept a few family members had the idea, didn't help however, when the first family member who thinks that i may have it, is the one who thinks you have cancer if you cough a lot.

I have it and I absolutely f**king hate it.
I'm not too high on the spectrum and kept it a secret from everyone
and somehow, someone found out in school and spread it around.
Then everyone started treating me like i was a disabled puppy or that I was dumb.
Not to mention all the awkward social habits and high anxiety that came with it.
It honestly isn't a gift at all, I'd rather do without it.

No what happened is they thought just because you were autisitic ment you were"retarded" and were misinformed and acted to you stereotypically had they actually known what autism really ment they would've acted differently

Still, I also forgot to mention before, even the teachers do the same things.
I got the highest scores on all my SATS tests when I was in year 6 and when I went to highschool, the teachers saw I had autism and put me in the bottom class completely ignoring what I had even worked hard on my tests for.
Also I have tried telling people I'm not an "idiot" or "retarded" but they still wont get the message at all.
I honestly wish I was just born without it. Its a pain to deal with, everywhere.

I find it funny that people always say autistic people lack creativity. I'm autistic and creativity and imagination are my strongest points. ^_^

 

I am quite happy being autistic. I wouldn't be me if I wasn't.

I have a form of autism and my parents say it's a gift for me since i'm different from my sisters. The difference that me and my sisters have is that they like one direction and I don't i only like the music. 

Besides without my creativity i wouldn't aim to be an author

Albert Einstein was autistic. If he wasn't born with autism, he wouldn't be as smart as he was. People say autism means you're stupid, haha, no. It actually makes you smarter...in a way. Autistics usually have one extremely strong point and one not so strong point. I am Autistic and my strong point is ANYTHING to do with technology (this is why i can use MMD at age 12) So that's why its a gift...But only mild Autism. High functioning autism is what you mean.

I'm sure anyone can learn how to use mmd though, lol.

My 4 year old brother has autism, and it makes him smarter and more fun. Yes it's a disability, but there is an advantage to everything bad, and some see it as a gift; others see it as a disaster

How do you KNOW it does? Autism doesn't do that - for some people it has the completely opposite effect. That's merely something that happens as a result of the behavior autism can cause.
How can you be sure he wouldn't be smart anyway?
And yes, maybe there's a few good things in it. That doesn't mean it's a "gift".

I'm just going to ignore you because denying that autism is not purely a disorder and just causes learning in different ways to others is just plain stupid. Autism only makes you learn some things slower or faster. My brother can use a computer to perfection, but he can't speak yet, because autism's just learning differently.

Our brains are just wired differently. Doesn't make us any stupider (or sometimes smarter) than anyone else.
