    Autistic Photographers NOT Images of

    I know NOW I am autistic, but never diagnosed

    Despite 3 years Cognitive Therapy weekly

    aka 150 sessions

    Making images for 50 years

    Our ever more confused Internet

    not much data

    my take is, a STILL portrait is better than video

    especially with OUT sound

    If you haven't been diagnosed (a process that takes a long time) then chances are big you are NOT autistic. Just having one or two of the symptoms isn't enough, you have to have all symptoms.

    Just finished the amazing and loving 1979 movie

    I have done a lot of research and personal depth, finding my own difference

    I read 2 PDR, but not the latest as reviews make it seem lost
    n
    I did not speak a word until almost 4, in my mind I waiting to make complete sentences

    Not a drummer, but I needed 2 pencils tapping and toe tapping continuously in early school

    I test high

    Did the GRE for 'fun' age 50, the first computer version that made it way harder than paper dots

    I am now old and don't give a hoot about a lot of things

    Male side has many in a row with autism

    The PDR (Physician Desk Reference) is a volume which contains information about prescription drugs. It does not contain any diagnostic information about medical conditions. I searched the online PDR on the words "autistic", "autism", and "spectrum", and they returned no results.

    Here is a link to some information at the CDC about Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD).

    https://www.cdc.gov/ncbddd/autism/signs.html

    I strongly recommend that you speak with your primary care physician about your concerns.

    Do you mean DSM (Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders), rather than PDR? Either way, self-diagnosing has its pitfalls.

    LOL if Tin Can was able to retire at 58 that's all I need to know. The rest is irrelevant to me.
