Information about Aspergers
and Autism by one who has it
With any disease or handicap those who do not have it can postulate
and guess what it is like. The intention of this page is to hear
from those who actually have Aspergers and Autism with the hope
it will help that community and the rest of us to better understand
with empathy and support. I will post comments with out disclosing
your name if you desire.

Through a friend who researches things on www.pubmed.govwe
have discovered some things that are helpful to me physically.
I owe most of my knowledge to him, yet he doesn't want to be associated
with any site I give here except www.pubmed.gov.
With this friend's expert help (any with no monetary compensation
since that would imply more liability for him) I have found out
that butyric and melatonin (and graviola) have helped me (with
my particular body's needs). I believe they have calmed down the
fire that was burning my metabolism in the past. Now my metabolism
is very different. I eat tons of food and am very active physically,
exercising 4-9 hours per week currently. The Word of Wisdom from
Doctrine and Covenants section 89 has helped me incredibly! source
The WoW includes how to eat (not focusing just on what not
to eat). I eat according to what I have found on www.herb-discovery.com.
Also, I have had a lot of success by reducing the amount of my
prescriptions. I take Zyprexa (very sedating) and Geodon (less
sedating) and now I take butyric acid and melatonin (less sedating).
I tagger them at 6 pm with Zyprexa and at bedtime the rest (Geodon,
butyric acid, and melatonin). I have gained a lot of information
from www.pubmed.gov and from www.herb-discovery.com.
My success in life comes in great measure through prayer and
doing all I can to become more self sufficient. This is important
for someone who has a note taker in college (to not give all the
responsibility to the note taker, but to continue to take SOME
notes if it is difficult). When a doctor says I should have Zyprexa
I questioned it a bit and researched it myself, knew of the side
effects and not having anything better to do I took the pill.
I research things online with health in order to inform myself.
Most significantly, smartsteps.net
has a site which explains The LSFT process which has helped me
more than ANYTHING else including medication, advice, counseling,
