Video:AUTISTIC WEREWOLF- MY RUDE AWAKENING AS AN AUTISTIC WEREWOLF IN A NEUROTYPICAL WORLD!

Video:AUTISTIC WEREWOLF- MY RUDE AWAKENING AS AN AUTISTIC WEREWOLF IN A NEUROTYPICAL WORLD!

It was the 1964 1965 Saturday Morning Television Season featuring two of my favorite cartoon shows. I loved GIGANTOR and Bennie and Cecil The Sea Sick Sea Serpent! At the time I did not know I was autistic. I did not know I was an autistic werewolf but even at this early age, I knew a mystery involving my true nature was a-foot!

At age 4 to 5 years old, I had no clue what High Functioning Autism or Aspergers Syndrome was. Yet I was already feeling the long confusing shadow life on the spectrum would cast over my life.

This video does not chronicle in brutal detail every aspect I faced as I awakened to my plight as an autistic individual in this neurotypical world. It would take a book to share with you a more detailed picture of my awakening to my place on the autism spectrum.

This video hits a few of the more glaring high points and catch 22 situations that made my process of discovery and awakening as an autistic person a challenge that left many scares. This video explains why Wolves are so central to my self of self and why the plight of fictional werewolves has been made real in ways that dominate my identity.

Every autistic person has a theme that lets them make sense of the duality of personality that life on the spectrum presents us with. Classic to all people on the spectrum is the fact that who we are as autistic beings is something nueortypical human society begs, forces and coerces us to suppress. To varying degrees all autistic people like werewolves suppress those aspects of our autistic selves that make the people in our lives nervous. First we are asked, Then Told, THEN FORCED to take whatever corrective steps we must to, JUST ACT NORMAL AND FIT IN A NEUROTYPICAL WORLD THAT IS AS FRIGHTENED OF OUR TRUE AUTISTIC NATURES AS fictional humans are afraid or made uncomfortable by fictional werewolves.

This video chronicles in broad strokes how I first understood I was different and how my childs mind settled on the Wolf and werewolf metaphors to make sense of my challenges. I did not get diagnosed as autistic till I was 8 years old. So for 8 years I got beaten, punished, called retarded, crazy and worse.

This video gives a hint to why I am THE AUTISTIC WEREWOLF you see today! ENJOY
