aspergers and insanity

Postby unknownquantity » Sat Jan 15, 2011 10:10 pm

I was diagnosed with aspergers one year ago. On diagnosis I had a definite mental breakdown and needed one week off work.
During my breakdown I remember feeling cross-eyed and not able to think clearly. I really felt I was going insane.

Tonight this feeling of feeling cross-eyed and unable to think has come back. It feels like a degree of insanity.

Has anyone experinced such feelings of being crosseyed and unable to think?

Do some people with aspergers deteriorate and eventually go insane??

A person with AS just as different and unique as any person without AS. So AS or not, you can deteriorate and eventually go insane. But atleast you are aware of it and can take precations so you avoid such a bad outcome!

As TNSe said, we can get any disease there is just like anyone else. But the cross-eyed thing i have regularly for all my life. I just faze out. It happens often enough i just stand there being so totally lost in thoughts in don't know were i am. My partner is so used to it she just says: 'you are off again'. Which usually snaps me back.
Don't know if that helps but i'm still compos mentis.
There's only two things I hate in this world. People who are intolerant of other people's cultures and the Dutch.

One thousand times yes to the cross eyed thing. The weird part is I know I'm doing it, and I know I'm phased out - there's just nothing I can do to stop it until it passes naturally.

i was diagnosed about a year ago, and i wouldn't say i feel like i'm going insane, but i definitely had a break down, and this has been the worst year by far of my entire life.

When a normie gets all cross-eyed and out of it, it's just another "episode" or maybe a sign of mental illness, but no big deal. So just approach it like that. If it gives you problems, talk to a professional--but one who understands that Asperger's is not a mental illness. "Comorbidity" should be struck from the clinical vocabularity.
