Autism is a “Developmental Disability” that is present from the time that a person is born. The exact causes of Autism are NOT known. Genetics, environmental factors, and conditions that cause prenatal stress are all possibilities.
What is known, is that there are several variations of Autism. I have a High-Functioning form of Autism that used to be called Asperger’s Syndrome. Thus, my name: ASPIEMAN.
Symptoms of Autism vary among people, but some common ones are included in the following list:
Love for animals; Appreciation of colors; Like of soft, smooth,
snug clothing; Dislike of rough clothing; Enjoyment of quiet;
Hatred of noisy rooms; Eating only certain foods; Calmed by
heavy blankets, and quiet; Prefer the same, familiar routines.
Most people are “Neuro-Typical”, or NT. “Autistics” are AS. I’m an AS person learning to live in an NT world that doesn’t understand me very well. Many NTs don’t understand AS traits. Bullying, and Tauntings have been how I’ve been mistreated ever since I was younger.
Some people have talked about Autism being a “Gift”. As if the condition gives its clients, or holders, some sort of special skill or something. I have mixed feelings about that. True, some of the greatest geniuses, and/or, well-known people in history have been Autistic:
Sir Isaac Newton, Thomas Edison, Albert Einstein, Michelangelo,
Alfred Kinsey, Thomas Jefferson, Steve Jobs, Bill Gates,
Temple Grandin, Charles Darwin, Dan Aykroyd, Lewis Carroll, and many
Almost everyone seems to know about the 1986 movie “Rain Main”. A movie about an Autistic man named Raymond Babbit, who was kidnapped by his brother Charlie Babbit.
I’m Heterosexual, and NOT part of the LGBTQ+ community. However, there are brain differences between NT, and AS, people. These brain differences are very similar to those found in LGBTQ+ people. Doctors are NOT sure about things. Many AS people are also LGBTQ+.
This world is NOT perfect, and neither are people. Autistics just need to learn to accept themselves and make the best of where we find ourselves in this diverse world.
Most Autistics are More-or-Less like me. People who are neither as smart as the brightest folks in history, or as disabled as the “Rain Man”. For us, Autism isn’t any sort of “Gift”, but a “Struggle” to be endured, as we work hard to “Fit Into” a society that doesn’t seem to want to accommodate us.
Autism is a lifelong condition. There is NO cure, but the condition can be treated with: drugs/chemicals, marijuana, therapy, thinking positively, trying again, and harder too, etc.
I suffer from a lot of Stress and Depression. These are more troubling than Autism. I don’t like the thought of ruining my body with drugs, which are actually “Toxic” chemicals. Uh, Oh !!!
Instead, I prefer the: Fun, and Thrill, of getting dressed up, with: Clothes, Accessories, and Shoes, from XDress. Yahoo! I have come up with an acronym to describe the XDress items that I like: Striking [Colorful], Snug, Smooth, Shiny – SSSS, for short.
My preferred environment is the: Peace, and Quiet, of my own home. Where I have the “Freedom” to admire myself. Noisy stores, like Target or Walmart, really bother me. I’m ready to have an Autistic “Meltdown” at those noisy stores. I prefer the Peace, and Quiet, of shopping on XDress.com.
XDress offers me A “Chemical Free” way to deal with my Autism, and the accompanying Depression. For that, I am very thankful. XDress offers: Clothes, Accessories, Shoes, and many other things, for giving yourself a nice, tight hug that lasts all day long. I’ve also learned about “Dyeing” some of the White-colored clothes that XDress sells.
Getting dressed up is a lot of Fun, and the best way for me to deal with Stress and Depression. Everything that I’ve purchased from XDress makes me feel good about myself. Some people might disagree about my purchases from XDress, but I’m NOT hurting anyone. Just being accepting of myself, admiring my appearance with clothes from XDress. Getting dressed up is the BEST de-stressing, or stress reliever, that I’ve found. All without having to pollute my body with those deadly, toxic chemicals.
I’m just an AS person, doing my best to live in this imperfect NT world, that doesn’t understand me very well. Even us folks with disabilities deserve to have fun in this life. XDress has provided me with the necessary items for doing just that. Thank you XDress!
