This comedian and Aspie will have you rolling on the floor with his witty insight observations about life on the autism spectrum!
Steven Joseph was once outgoing, working many years in media, radio and public relations. He participated in large crowd events, spoke to tens of thousands confidently while broadcasting, and performed normal, day-to-day, activities such as shopping in grocery stores.
At age 45, life changed dramatically, when, driving his car, flashing road signs began to cause Steven to feel dizzy and nauseous. While driving in rain or at night, oncoming headlights became unbearable as his mind perceived all vehicles with having high-beams turned on.
Steven could no longer tolerate shopping in stores with loud music, intercoms, or endure regular audibles such as cash registers beeping.
With everyday sights and sounds now exaggerated, Steven's increased sensory perception produces a stabbing surge of pain to his brain. (See Autism TMI video above for more).
Steven began to find small gatherings overwhelming. He started to withdraw from socializing outside of his home.
His communications skills decreased. He began having difficulty knowing when someone is speaking sarcastically, figuratively or literally, and he began to miss social cues.
All of this, coupled with involuntary hand motions, led to Steven being diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). It is not known what provoked these changes, yet Steven thinks that it may have been provoked by environmental poisonings, mercury dental fillings and/or mercury-tainted injections.
As Steven journeyed with the ASD diagnosis, he learned of the term: Sensory Processing Disorders (SPD) and believes that SPD more accurately describes his over-stimulating and oversensitiveness conditions.
In addition, Steven has had a lifelong hyper-sense of smell with tobacco products, vapes, perfumes, colognes, chemicals, cleaning supplies, fabric softeners, molds and mildews, all causing him nausea, respiratory issues and/or the sensation that his throat is closing.
Steven writes, “If you're an adult with ASD or SPDs, and like me, you didn't experience these as a child, I’d like to hear from you. Please post a private or public note below.
Everyone is welcome to post or send a comment about their ASD/SPD experience and to offer words of encouragement as well as insights as to why this is happening to adults and children worldwide.
In closing, I am part of Facebook autism support groups and have been stunned by the numbers of adults globally with similar circumstances.
I am also honored to have become an administrator on the 4,000-plus members, global, Understanding Asperger's and SPD's Facebook group page. Please join us there for a greater worldwide perspective.
Share this website with others to help get the word out that Autism, Asperger's Syndrome and Sensory Processing Disorders are not only happening to children, they're happening to adults in their 20's, 30's, 40's and beyond. We must find out why. Share options are at the bottom of this page.
If there is a way that I may be an encouragement to you, please send a note. 'Til next time, stay positive and thank you!
