Autism And Having Your Needs Disregarded

I feel as though since I turned 18, my mom thinks the problems I had with autism went away. So many people are under the impression that autism stops at 18, your problems stop at 18 which is not true. Autism does not drop off the face of the earth when you turn 18. Autistic adults exist and they struggle.


When I was a little girl/teen. My mom knew about my needs. For instance. I need explicit instructions. My mom knew of this when I was little and told my aunt that she has to tell me ' I want Sprite' 'I want X' when she told me to bring her some lemon and I thought lemonade. Now, as of me being an adult, she gets mad and refuses to provide this little accommodation. She is autistic like me but holds me on a neurotypical standpoint. She expects me to be able to understand cryptic instructions like Nts. 'The garbage is full' may be a request or asking you to do something to a NT but to us, it seems like a train of thought.

My mom doesn't realize that failing …

Hate Is NOT Constructive Criticism

In the content creator industry, people have a very missed up thinking when it comes to feedback on YouTube (or anything). When will people learn the difference between explaining POLITELY why you didn't find a video helpful vs outright hating on that person's content just because YOU don't like it?


I decided to work from home. I decided to build my cryptocurrency blogs such as Weku, Whaleshares, etc. I still want to do some freelance writing. I decided to vlog about my self-employment journey on YouTube in hopes that anything is hard but it's up to you to put in the time and effort. I made a video on why you should work from home. This guy, who clearly didn't watch the video, hated on it just because he didn't like it/my content. And some people tried to defend him saying it's criticism. Not showing names since I don't want a witch hunt.

Here is the video if you wanna see it. 

Another girl, who clearly didn't watch the video, defended that POS. If …

Being An Adult On The Spectrum Is Worse Than You Think

I'd like you to read the blog. Gather the information before you make judgments. It's rough for anyone on the spectrum. Getting demonized by Nts for not being like them. The list can go on. I think being an adult on the spectrum is worse. For instance, the support we may have during school goes away when he become adults. This tells me people think autism just drops off the earth when we turn 18. This is false. Autism does not go away at 18. There is something call adults with autism. We are lonely in this world.


I lost count on how many times I have had requests for me to thrive denied because I am an adult. Last year, I had to be interviewed by a doctor from SSI. Interviews make me extremely anxious. I just don't know how to answer certain questions. I asked for my mom to come with me ONLY for her to inform the doctor of my anxiety and to not let it influence his decision or to clarify a question he may ask because I will misunderstand the question. It was denied of cour…

I Made 47 USD Posting Content On Steemit.com

Back in 2017, I joined a site called Steemit.com. I joined after the first ad mess with YouTube and their response with the 10K views rule. I was on a site called Ong.social before they rebranded. This guy talked about some alternatives to YouTube and he mentioned Steemit. I went a created an account.



This site is like Reddit but you get rewards when people upvote your content. If someone has enough voting power, they can give you some good rewards. When you post a photo and people vote it, your rewards are split half and half. SBD and Steem power. Your steem power controls how much your votes are worth. You can also earn by curating aka voting other people.

I traded my rewards for BTC and then real money. The value varies.

I made 47 USD when I collected the money. I also use other blog sites in case I face a dip in revenue or in case Steemit goes down.

I will be documenting my self-employment journey. I am trying to get disability hopefully it can hold until I can get a full-time inc…

Why I Hate Neurotypicals

Please read the blog first before you comment. Read the blog before you make your judgment. I am not talking about all Nts. Just the ones who do the things I am about to talk about. As a person with autism, NTs make us feel like outcasts. They mock us because of our differences. They bully us, they belittle us. They think insulting us makes them look smart and makes them better than us, but it doesn't. NTs are the reason why I hate being autistic. Their lack of understanding about us.


All my life I have been around Nts. All through school. Even in public. I am tired of being belittled, bullied, insulted by Nts. Why can't they just be nice? It's not that hard! In school when the teacher would call on me when I didn't know the answer, I'd get laughed at rather than laughing at the teacher when she/he saw I clearly didn't know the answer but called on me anyway.

If I didn't know something I am labeled stupid by Nts for that.  In an Nt world. You don't know…

Growing Up With Religious Folks

I have been silent about this. It's about time I speak up. Vent. I couldn't grasp that my folks are religious. If I had to rate how religious my folks are, I'd have to push that scale.  Break that scale. Do whatever to that scale.
.

These are just my thoughts. I may be exaggerating. My folks heavily raised me on religion. They sent me to a Catholic school and I am not even Catholic. So you can guess what I am. My folks claimed they send me to that school because the schools in the city are bad and the school they wanted to be in was full. They couldn't find any schools in suburban areas?

I would say 'oh my God' and my mom will say I am using his name in vain. Vain means bad right? If I am using it in a bad context, I can see it. If  I see someone get hit by a car for instance and say 'oh my God,' how is that using his name in vain. Maybe my mind is not in a good state to understand these things.

My mom would send me to spend a weekend with my aunt when s…
