Ask an Autistic with ADHD/Epilepsy
There are some people on Simbi who are giving incorrect information about various neurological conditions so I think it would be responsible of me to answer people's questions truthfully. Incorrect information is unacceptable to me as an adult.
These include Asperger Syndrome (now reclassified as autism spectrum disorder); ADHD; and epilepsy because they feel that as a parent of someone who might have this disorder that they know what it is like. These particular three are connected. ADHD is now being considered a possible spectrum disorder.
I am more than happy to clear up any misconceptions you have about Aspergers / autism, ADHD, epilepsy, generalized anxiety disorder, post traumatic stress, and what it is like to live with these disorders.
It is only fair that I do this in order to protect those who cannot protect themselves. That is my purpose in life, so don't ever say that autistics are selfish. :)
I am happy to do this for a simbi. If you want to donate more or want to combine services like ftm as well, you can and I am not going to say no or complain about it.
Training & Qualifications
I am an adult with diagnosed moderate autism specifically the form that was previously called Asperger Syndrome.
Additionally, I have been diagnosed with ADHD, epilepsy, PTSD, and generalized anxiety. I am also transgender a common issue with autistics.
I have a medical license which gives me more of an insight into my own diagnosis as well as a BS in Anthropology and Human Biology (focusing on evolution of behaviour), MS in Space Studies (focus on aerospace psychology) and am currently pursuing a graduate degree in psychology.
Availability & Preferences
This depends on if you want to do email or phone/Skype.
Email I am usually available.
Phone/Skype I am not always available. I can send you an acuity scheduling link for if you want to talk on the phone or Skype if we aren't both available at the same moment.. Or you can go to my profile page, use the personal website link as it is my Simbi scheduling and it goes right into my scheduler. It also sends you a reminder before the appointment and all the ways to get ahold of me.
