More on Pain and Autism
Lost in plain sight and in view of the old Crypto Sensitive Autism Guidelines now purposely forgotten after Rain Man's Curse took effect, was the idea Autistic don't feel pain. Many of us from all over the world that have somehow missed Rain Man's curse can attest to the idea we don't feel lots of internal pain. If we had birth defects or injuries we can for sure tell you autism bodies are different from yours. If Modern Autism would care to listen and learn from us they would figure out why the poor autisitc souls with digestive issues present so sick when it is very likely we have a simple condition we just don't feel the internal signals you would. This Pain Tolerance is also a key factor in some of us not figuring out our toilet habits as we don't get the same body signals you do telling you its time to "go." It was once noted in Crypto sensitive circles Autistic babies were not cuddly and hated to be held some of that is related to our pain tolerance we didn't know we are "uncomfortable " or we are making you uncomfortable by not moving.
We have a whole segment of our anthropology that had hips that were off and the resulting defect caused us not to be able to run skip or do jumping jacks. We never showed enough pain to warrant x-rays, etc., so we were just odd kids. Coupled with our less than perfect personalities and poor communication ability we fit the mold of Autism or MR/DD a little too well. Plus even if we could communicate would believe us when told anyone our hips were off and out of line? It is just a message no one was expecting. Let s Face it MR/DD professionals have such a low threshold of success for us they really don't give a damm when we really do over come, AND by then they can't be bothered with the "retards" they really despise. Today by the time Mother and Father get "autismed to death" doing the right things as they are being told by the Autism Society -they to have had it -and can't wait for their kid to be in that group home and out of their hair.
Some of us today can finally walk and feel hip pain as our hips finally hurt. Most of us in the sub group of our anthropology now wear special built up shoes on our short side and can even run today and do jumping jacks. Why is it when we figured out the obvious to us and succeed modern Autism that is supposed to be all caring and knowing just simply fails to even look at our success? Could it be they were never expecting us to appear out of Rain Man's dust? Even worse were they ever expecting a successful population of Aspies? Apparently not, we seem to be very bad for their view of autism. What a shame our old Autism is the very building blocks of the mind and here if they admit to those of us on the forgotten side of the Autism Time line it will obvious as a sunrise their Rain Man autism reinvented autism and the Autism of today was molded to that low standard. It certainly made for a wonderful spike in Autism Cases and even an "epidemic" at he expense of all of mankind.
