AspergersYou tease him.Aspergers5 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
Lie to him.
And he takes it all.
He doesn't understand. Or maybe he does and doesn't let on. He always has been one to want attention.
No. That was wrong. Not attention. He wants friends. He wants people who don't make fun of how he dresses or the things he likes. He wants people who don't egg him on for a laugh or call him names and make fun of his (often less than socially acceptable) mannerisms.
He doesn't see where he is wrong though! Oh, no. He can't tell when an appropriate time to make goofy faces is, or how Nazi jokes aren't very funny when in serious discussion. He doesn't know that words like "fag" and "retard" are not words he should be throwing around so casually, especially when they are the same words people call him.
I have tried to teach him these things. And I will continue to. People will make fun of me

A mental condition,
Is there something wrong
They ask curiously,
They couldn't have known,
So please try not to blame them
What is the closest definition?
Your mind is wired differently,
The man in the nice suit said,
Taking my mother's money
In return for a "diagnosis"
I did not look into his eyes
Did not like the
Calculating look he gave me
I say "Aspie"
It's almost pretty
In a way
For something with

The faces say,
Stop making excuses for
If I had the choice
To act like the others
To feel natural
In someone else's skin
Long ago, I would have
But my oddly shaped glases
With lenses of thinly sliced opals
And the wire of dreams
are hard to give up
Indeed, I reach for them
No stranger to this skin of mine
Once, I walked with my head turned
To the ground
And didn't know the colors
Of peoples' eyes
I don't know about
I can't speak

"Hey that is not an excuse!"
Hey man I hate to say it
but Aspies can drive you crazy
Want to tear your hair out
and pound your head against the wall
But I am here to say
You know nothing about me at all.
You say I am rude, stubborn, and naive
and that is G rated terms you said about me.
But I tell you you got it all opposite.
The people closest to me describe me friendly and passionate
and not to mention intelligent.
I might not stand out and be invisible to most
but those blind people don't matter
all they say is "She's retarded" "and a loser"
and assume i wanna start an arguement
but when the yelling and the accusations start i can't stand it.
All I can do is pray for help,
I don't dare say anything.
So before you get into an arguement
you will stop to think about the other person,

Aspergers: Behind the eyesPeople with Aspergers tend to have great difficulties with making and keeping friends.Aspergers: Behind the eyes6 years ago in General Non-Fiction More Like This
Through out our early lives we tend to talk and try to understand others.
We assume everyone else thinks and works the same way.
We often ask the wrong things unaware of the social taboo factor, this in turn pushes others away.
Wondering why we try to ask and they try harder to avoid us without an actual answer. From this we feel a deep sense of rejection, and rejection for us cuts deeper than it does for most average people. It makes us question "whats wrong with me!? Why cant I figure it out? What did I do wrong?!".
Go through it enough times and you start to develop a phobia about saying the wrong thing to someone you deeply care about. By not saying it we tend to hurt ourselves and create a deep sense of regret.
The more rejection happens the less we begin to believe in people.
For some it simply becomes a black and white world, to you people are simply those who have hurt you and those who will
AspergersAm I not pretty?Aspergers4 years ago in Visual & Found Poetry More Like This
Or am I plain and ugly.
I know I am smart;
Though I am slow.
I have multiple talents.
To others they do not show
Why does nobody get to know me?
When ones that do,
Say they love me.
What is it that happens,
Or what I say,
Makes everybody go away.
This world is Cruel;
Leaving me filled with questions;
Soon that bleed out
From my mouth.
When there are answers;
I don't know if they breath true.

We are order, though we are in chaos.
The cat was seen as a demon,
though it was peacefull.
What you don't understand,
you can hate.
What you can learn,
you can love.
We are, though we are not.
We have a foot in each camp.
We are mad,
though we are smart.
We are chaos in order,
and order in chaos.
