    PSA: IF YOU THINK YOU HAVE AUTISM, YOU PROBABLY DO! Just keep that in your mind please folks. Life is hell when you added undiagnosed. It doesn't get a great deal easier when you have your diagnosis, but at least you can understand yourself better. NOW TO YOU DEAR KYLE ; I LOVE YOU FOR TELLING YOUR STORY! We, people on the Autism spectrum, feel so alienated from society. I'm always so glad when a respected person like you speak up about autism. Life is pretty hard when you have autism - and that's when you KNOW you are on the spectrum. I was only diagnosed officially aged 38. Life until then was hell, I never understood the rules or anything in life. People mocked me over things - like my need to be certain over something, or me following rules etc. Life is so much harder when you don't even know, and cannot even understand why you don't fit in. So thank you. People on the Autism spectrum - like I think most of your subscribers are, tend to over index in science and "Black & White" situations. Fun anecdotal "joke"; *Vaccines don't cause autism, Autism causes vaccines* Get it? Because people with autism tend to work in sciences, they're likely the ones who would create vaccines? So autism causes vaccines? Lol

    I am 21 and I just learned last year that I have asperger's. I feel very similar, mine is minor and it tends to not effect me in a negative way very much, but I feel like I act very different and perceive things very differently than regular people. Definitely understand why people think I'm a bit weird after meeting me, was wondering if I was weird my whole life.

    the thing about the autism spectrum is that people dont understand that its levels and not just you have it or dont i am on the higher functioning side and it is extremely difficult for me to interact with people that i am not used to i have a select few friends and they are actually good friends i am extremely wierd in terms of how i react to my autism i can pick out individual conversations in a crowded room my mind is like a supercomputer in terms of how i can simulate outcomes to mechanical issues i am starting to understand the idea of social interaction more but i still like to stay to myself

    I’m in a weird spot when it comes to autism. I was diagnosed very early on and I honestly don’t remember much from childhood. I see a lot of talk about sensory overload, masking, stimming, and whatnot. I haven’t had much experience with any of those. Except for sensory issues, and even those moments are few. Apparently I’ve changed and used to be more sensitive as a whole. Autism as a superpower, I don’t see myself that way. I can’t find any positive traits. I don’t even know if autism is affecting me or if it’s just my own bad habits that bring me down. I don’t know which traits are autism related and which are not. Is it possible to “outgrow” autism? For lack of better term? All I know is that I’m at a place where I’m generally confused, unmotivated, and stuck on where I’m going next. Autism or not, it’s getting annoying for me. Anyone relate?

    I don’t understand how autism feels, because it’s an aucoustic disorder. That’s the name right there. The problem is there is an inability to filter sound when listening to someone, so they can’t focus. They can’t look interested because they can’t. Thus, several psychological problems come with it, since the symptom makes the person desire isolation and introversion, and the misunderstanding also leads to maltreatment.

    Does anyone find it a lot easier to get along with people on the autistic spectrum if your diagnosed or have it yourself. Like I struggle holding a normal convo with someone who doesn't have autism (any part of the spectrum) but even before I know I immediately feel more comfortable with that person if they are on the autism spectrum

    Interesting video, and omg. People eating chips drives me crazy like you, like literal internal burning rage crazy, and as illogical as I know it is, it doesn't make it any easier to deal with. Setting up routines are paramount for me, but the downside is if a routine is upset I get derailed hard, just like little things of self-serve checkouts cause such panic due to it being a different routine, or missing my regular train and having to mentally readjust the rest of my routine... Kills me. Setting up 'brain tricks' (like your keys on your food) I do a lot, putting in place things that help me function 'normally'. I would agree completely that we can't wait for the world to change for us, we have to change for it, even if it is just trying to blend, I always get so depressed for feeling "incompatible with this world", but over the years I have learnt how to get by, even if most of the time it fills me with stress and anxiety.

    Thank you so very much for making this video! Two of my boys have autism. I watch every video that I can find like this. With someone on the spectrum, talking about what it is like and ways they have learned to cope etc. This is the first one I am showing to them. This was very well said! I really hope you will decide to make more videos about autism! I understand you don't want to. But, just in case you do, we will be watching! Btw, my 17 year old son with autism recognized you, and started searching for other videos he has apparently been watching-of yours- for some time! Now I am going to get my 12 year old to come watch. Thank you so much!

    Can we stop pretending that autism is some sort of blessing? To me it’s just as bad as thinking that if someone is blind that they are blessed with echolocation. My son is autistic and if I could cure his autism tomorrow I would. It’s not a blessing or a talent. Nothing about it makes him more likely to live anything close to a normal life. It’s not a superpower. It’s a disease.

    Since childhood, I suspect that something is wrong with me and a lot of what is discussed in this video is true for me as well. I'm just shy, easily distracted, I can't make contact with people, I always work as far away from everyone in the office as possible, I forget everything very quickly, I regularly forget to take the necessary things with me and I don't understand other people. And in infancy, I was mistakenly diagnosed with autism. The last thing I would like now is to know that I have real autism. I definitely have nothing to worry about.

    hello Kyle Hill, My name is Darla Cartwright, i am on my fiance's account to comment; I have a nephew named Abel he is 4yrs almost 5 August 16th 2021 and we have not been able to diagnose him but we are over 85% he is in the spectrum of ASD and any help and information you can give me would be greatly appreciated we do not have a lot of resources or help with making sure he has the support and skills he needs. He is my only nephew and I love him so much and I try to help him and try to be there for him as much as possible, he can talk but only when he wants to and he is pretty darn smart, he can figure out how to work anything, he can count and say the alphabet and tell us what color is what but only when he wants to do it, i understand he is still a child but i believe we need information and skills to help him along. I don't think any less of you Kyle, I like you even more and it makes me feel assured that my nephew can be just as amazing as you are, I don't believe ASD is bad or an hindrance, I believe it lets someone see the world differently than anyone else and because of that you can figure out solutions that no one else would be able to imagine, within the last 7 years I seen news of people in schools harming kids with ASD because they were not trained on how to react when someone acts out or have an issue with their surroundings, and sadly to the point they harm the kids that they die and since Abel has been born I have this fear he could die due to someone who cannot handle or react in a proper way. I shall look into AANE and see what they can do for us. You are amazing Kyle and I enjoy your videos because you are smart and funny, you can explain complicated theories and other mathematics processes even for someone who doesn't know that can understand to an extent.

    Kyle, as someone who is autistic, just know that there’s nothing wrong with the autistic brain, it just means that our brains are wired a little bit differently. Nothing bad about it, I am quite lucky to have lots of friends, some of wish are autistic as well. When I tell people I’m autistic, a lot of my friends tell me they never would of guessed as I am usually outgoing and social. I’m not perfect, but I do have dedication in my life (I am a first degree black belt in shotokan karate, but due to the pandemic, my dojo has closed). Just know that we support you and I love your channel.

    My youngest has high functioning autism and we were lucky she was diagnosed at around five years old (if your thinking that’s unusual for girls, I know, be we will get to that!) and I realised how much of our life we had already altered to fit around the different way she sees the world and having that diagnosis helped me close the gaps and change what needed to be changed. As a result she has grown up with the knowledge her ASD is just one part of who she is but also not an excuse for poor behaviour but a reason to help us figure out a way to avoid repeating the mistake again. It’s been a long process, far from easy and I have made many a mistake along the way but I now have a fairly well functioning child. Then when she was twelve some aspects of her current behaviour, tied into her past behaviour gave me an a strong suspicion and the day after her 13th birthday, just a few month ago now, she very nervously came out to me as a trans woman. Obviously this now complicates a few things as they need to be taken inconsideration between trans issue and ASD issue but mostly it is a blend of the two. My daughter is so much happier being herself in her home I look at my beautiful daughter and my heart swells to see her so happy. It’s not going to be easy for her but I know she is up to the challenge. I did asker why she was so nervous telling me given I am a lesbian, involved in the community, have a few trans friends, one of whom is very close and she has met several times and is well aware of how much I value the friendship we have but it just goes to show that even when you are in for a space that looks to be as safe as can be, it still takes a lot for anyone to be honest about themselves and open themselves up and then wait for the response. Whatever information you are putting out there about your hidden from view, private inner self and it’s workings it is very frightening and you are as vulnerable as can be. So don’t be upset if someone you know takes time to share, it’s not personal, it’s not that they truly think your reaction will be bad it is just something that take a huge amount of courage because letting people into that private of spaces is like Pandora’s box.

    Well conceived and bravely executed. There is another way to describe what you have done here. Leaping off the high-dive like that took guts and was done to benefit others. That's sacrifice, the most stark and universal currency of love in the world. It doesn't matter where on the planet or when in history or what faith: everyone gets it. The viewer comments are versions of joy and thanks. So if I have this right, a guy inclined to social isolation did a bunch of sci-techy videos and then released an act of generosity and love that resulted in a 15,000 strong chorus of joy and thanks. I'm freaking impressed. It don't make you a saint, but perhaps it is on that spectrum, too. Thanks, dude. All the best - Peter Barnes

    I discovered your channel today and have learned so many very cool facts about science and history...then I found this video which caused me to goto AANE's website and realize that throughout my entire life I've been completely ignorant of the fact that the things about myself that made me feel like a fish out of water, are the things that if I learn to embrace and use can end up changing my life in a beneficial way. I imagine this was a hard thing to do but I thank you very much for making this video for what that's worth, because it did help me and I'm sure it has/will help many more. Edit: I also have the hypersensitivity to sound but before this had no idea what it could possibly mean or how to deal with it let alone communicate it to others without feeling like a freak or out of fear that I'd be ridiculed for it. Just knowing there are others out there like me makes a huge difference.

    In a world of imperfections, in a world where human beings are not perfect, but rather they have weaknesses. And whenever a human realizes what their weakness is, they strengthen themselves in another area of themselves to help combat that or to balance their selves out. And whenever you have something in your life that is a weakness, such as a mental disorder or a disability, it's likely you will strengthen yourself in that area most people do not, that they will start seeing something special about you and something you can do to they cannot because they have different weaknesses so they have to create a different way to balance their selves out, which will be a different strength than yours. Which means your strength will be more needed, but that won't be recognized unless you show that you have that strength. Your weaknesses will always show, you don't have to show your weaknesses intentionally they happen by accident, but your strengths come out intentionally. Our weaknesses can show us what we really need, they can give us a motivation to be a better person than we were yesterday, they give us a challenge that either we can look at as a motivation to improve and do better, or we can let it drag us down and hold us back from being better. Even some people with disabilities and extreme problems in their lives, but they learned more about themselves where they could strengthen in the area to become something better and to be happy. It's even possible that the very issue you have can actually be your greatest strengths that you are capable of wielding. There's no telling what it would be until you try, experiment, examine yourself and put your stuff to the test and keep trying to find more and do more rather than just give up and try to survive and let the world tell you how to live

    Thank you for doing this and waiting all this time for the right moment. I’ve often wondered if I’m on the spectrum. I have success with my social life but it wasn’t always that way. I just know I think differently than other so called normal people. I think I’ve trained myself to act normally which has helped me get used to being a part of society but I still feel somewhat alien to a lot of people. I know my case is mild but you’re doing a good thing for people who might feel like their autism is a burden.

As a person with asperger myself a was happy that article existed, but I knew that it wouldn't reach to as many people as I wanted to. Also the whole thing was in my native language Polish. But you created a video about it for the whole world to see and in the international language. You did an amazing work for the whole world of autism/asperger people.

    I've never been diagnosed, but lately I've been feeling like I've also been on the autism spectrum my whole life and just never considered it. Who knows if I would be diagnosed, but I relate to how you're feeling here. Thanks for coming out and saying all this, setting a great example and all that

    Kyle, I've been a fan of your material for some time and was intrigued when I saw the title of this video. As I listened to your story I started to realize a lot of this sounded familiar. After thinking on this and doing research over the past month, I now realize that I too am on the spectrum. I am just starting this journey of discovery. Thank you so much for sharing your story and putting me on the path to find the answers I've been searching for over the past 38 years.

    Being an aspie is a trade-off, we're socially awkward but we can really hyper-focus on something. It's good to know my sensitivity to LOUD NOISES is not entirely unfounded, my headphones are one of my most prized items, they protect me and let me focus.

    Now, imagine having suffered severe trauma at a young age (body temp =>106Fdeg for 6 weeks, 1982, Kawasaki's disease) and not being able to find a professional that is even willing to entertain the idea of un-diagnosised brain trauma, or ASD. Welcome to the world of the unprivileged: skin color and gender are irrelevant.

    Thanks so much for sharing this Kyle. I'm currently 21 years old and I was diagnosed since I was little as a gifted kid in the Asperger spectrum; like you said, I also have an attraction to science since I'm currently studying architecture, but also found an insane passion for comics that not many people I personally know have. I always thought of my disability as something that actually made me who I am and me me improve, and for that I thank you so much for making this video. It can inspire multiple people and kids, so I want to thank you again for this.

    Eye opening to me, I can relate with a lot about what you said especially the black and white nature of things. I’ve loved math and science. To the point where accounting and pharmacy were my dream jobs. I love keeping detailed notebooks of financial decisions constantly keeping my ledgers updated and finding new avenues to maximize efficiency to the point it’s exhausting. I’m not sure what’s going on in my head but it’s nice to know others think like I do too

    I was told I have dysgraphia when I was little. They told me I had a learning disability, making me think I was less capable then everyone else. In truth Its not a disablility, its just that my brain works diffrently then theirs.

    So much of what you've said and what I've read from other commenters resonated with me so much. I took a few of those online tests (yeah, I know they aren't the end all be all) and every one said I had a "high likelihood". So I'm going to speak to a professional as soon as I can. Like you, I just want to understand myself more. If I'm not somewhere on the spectrum, cool, I guess I'm just an awkward anti social person. If I am then thats also cool, I can see where my actions and thoughts come from. Thank you for this video, I love your stuff and this just makes me love it even more!

    "Autism is my superpower." Captain Tard, here to save the day lmao. But seriously, I have Aspergers myself, along with ADHD and Tourettes (just the twitchy kind, not the cursing kind, I do enough of that on my own) but I was diagnosed when I was 7-ish, so I've been lucky enough to have almost my whole life to learn how to function with these things and whatnot. I've also been lucky enough to have amazing parents who're very supportive and patient with me. I'm glad to see you're doing grand.

    I’m literally crying right now. So strange I discovered your channel last nite and am immediate fan. This popped up today and oddly enough I will be receiving my sons diagnosis within the hour. The reason I’m crying is I feel i am undiagnosed and therefore responsible. I know this isn’t bad I just feel I could have not tried to avoid this and done better. Thank you so much for having the courage that I could not but more so for inspiring me to face this without shame and maybe even embrace what’s special in me and my son. Keep up the great work and know that you have helped me And my family for sure.

    Great video. I still don't understand why we call it aspergers. Hans Asperger was a Nazi collaborater who put thousands of autistic people to death. Doesn't seem like a good name choice.

      @Steven Coyle You do realize ASD is the broad term for all kinds of Autism, including Aspergers, right? Aspergers is the name for a specific kind
