an autistic person probably has a WORSE condition under the Autism!

---------------------------------
hi all...

here is my second newtopic of today, being new to the forum.
http://gestalt.as4us.net/phpBB2/index.php
a new autism forum, mostly for adult with high level autism


I have seen Autism whether aspergers or high level functioning, in adults,
to be the "second condition" of the person, and the "first condition" I
have found, is affecting the person WORSE than the autism!!

what is this second condition?
---why it is the "poor self image" that comes from being put down, from
childhood onwards, from everyone around you and then you internalize this
self-image and then you begin to belive it and then you live your life
from then on believing it! Anyone who walks a different path, is like
that fish in a school of fishes that swims at different angles to the rest
of the fish.

example.
an ice cream shop where there is a line of teen age kids. all of them have
only a choice of vanillia or strwberry, thus the clerk ends up in a loop
routine of saying the same things over and over and he ends up fanticizing
while dishing out ice cream. *then* the 1q140 Aspergers teen comes up. he
asks whther this vanillia is "natural" and also what is in it. the clerk
is angry that his train of thought is interrupted. the kid picks up this
anger like of a shock wave coming at him. thus the kid ends up feeling
that it is his fault that the clerk is angry. he cannot take it anyways
from anything that this anger is directed at him and he is the One that is
the odd man out. repeat this scene about 500 to 5,000 times a year, in
every single social action, or sports clumseynesses!! soon he belives
that there is something wrong with him.
welll??

---thus even if there is some "theraphy" that might actually help this
person become more "functioning" in the world, a theraphy that is "kind"
to autism people, the issue of the poor self image has YET to be addressed
and this issue will then become the real "killer" for his higher
functionings after theraphy! For as long as he feels that he is "not
right", or that "it is my fault", his self-functionings will be imared!

Thus i feel that maybe this image-issue should be addressed not only
first, but made to be of more important, in the counselings of the
autistic person, or in his teachings as to how he could have a higher
level functioning!
