    I have high functioning autism, and I have problems with emotions.
    After a serious amount of emotions have come through me.
    It usually takes a lot of energy away,
    Energy spent on emotions.
    So i usually need to take a few hours after a stressful day with very dull feelings of joy or just being content until i regain that energy.

    The MMR vaccine does play a role in severe autism, or big whoop you have Aspergers, I bet you don't know half the stuff that happens to people with autism so severe they can't talk even at the age 11 can't read or write at 11 and can't even tell you why he's hurting. At least dig deeper before you do autism videos. Search ignite the truth on YouTube and watch the movie Vaxxed

    Me to I'm mild but I can't stand people who get bullied for having it and I don't look like I have it either so I kept it secret except those who were bullied so they knew they weren't alone when I defended them. I got the courage when 3 senior found out when I was a freshmAn I had autism and one of my friends who didn't have it told me to run so I did. He stood his ground and took5 hits with a steel toe boot and came to class with a busted forehead with blood going everywhere. He was out for the rest of the year with a major concussion and couldn't go outside for safety reasons. He gave his life for mine so I follow his lead till this day. Those 3 kids were arrested before anyone else found out so I was saved as well.

    I have been bullied for the last ten years because of the effects my autism has on my. Everything from being told my interests are "childish" to being physically hit for acting differently. My skull is actually misshapen from when I was hit once.
