My husband is undiagnosed but I think he is autistic

“My husband is undiagnosed but I think he is autistic”, Rebecca Asked.

Sometimes people will go undiagnosed, even if they have had autistic symptoms their entire lives. The reason for this is that autism is a syndrome on a continuum. Unlike the common cold (which you either have or you don’t) autism exists in many forms. If someone has a successful life and is somewhere on the autism scale, they likely have a mild form such as Asperger’s Syndrome. A test can be taken on line or your doctor can set you up with a consult. If you suspect this, talk to your spouse and see if they would be willing to determine the facts.

Is Terry Porter autistic?

Does Terry Porter have a disability

Reality shows have become all of the rage and the more moronic they are the better people seem to like them. For some reason there has recently been a large influx of Southern men and women who have gotten their own shows and “Porter Ridge” is one of them. The unofficial king of the “Ridge”, Terry Porter, does not always seem like he knows what he is doing. His pronouncements are suspect and many believe that he is on some way mentally challenged. That has led to the speculation that he is somewhere on the autism scale. Though this may seem to explain his eccentricity, it does not.

Is Tim Tebow autistic?

Tim Tebow is one of the greatest college athletes ever to play football. His coach made a system within which his talents shined and he was the beneficiary of two national titles and a Heisman Trophy. Unfortunately that has not translated to a pro career (although he is still trying to land a pro job). It is interesting that Tebow might be considered autistic since he seems to have none of the symptoms that are most often associated with autism. But, people will always wonder about these things. In Tebow’s case, it does not seem that he is in any way autistic nor does he have Asperger’s.

Is Tim Burton autistic?

Does Tim Burton have autism

Some people are just eccentric. Take the old lady, Miss Havisham, in Dickens’ novel “Great Expectations”. She waited in the same wedding dress, letting the cake get old and moldy for her untrue groom until the tattered remain of the dress one day caught fire and took her with it. Tim Burton seems to be the same type. He has made some very interesting movies in the past (not the least of which is “Nightmare Before Christmas”) and he does appear to be an off kilter genius. But, there has been no speculation that he is autistic. Some people are just weird.

Does Tim Minchin have autism

Sometimes people get it right. Even if an individual is enormously wealthy, gifted or otherwise has the ability to be a role model or give charitably to organizations, they are not required to. Tim Minchin is by some accounts one of the funniest men on the planet. He plays songs that make people laugh and he spreads good will in other ways also. He has given a great deal of money and time to help people who exist on the autism spectrum, and he is undaunted by the extra celebrity this provides him. No he is not autistic, but he is a philanthropist.

Is Tina from “Bob’s Burgers” autistic?

Fox has several shows on Sunday nights that have characters who could be considered “special”. Peter Griffin is up to his antics, Ralphy Wiggum is pretending to be a helicopter and monotone Tina, from “Bob’s Burgers” is conducting and interesting experiment. Tina does seem to be somewhat divorced from the zaniness of the other characters in that she is distant and low on the sociability scale. She may have autism or at the very least Asperger’s, but it is difficult to tell about a cartoon character. It is more likely that she has some type of learning disability and that her family protects her as a flipper of burgers.

Is Temperance Brennan autistic?

Popular TV characters are often the butt of speculative talk. The actors and actresses that play them may be singled out by Paparazzi and autograph seekers, but the characters themselves are open to wondering also. Temperance Brennan is a character on the TV show “Bones” and she is both brilliant and socially awkward. A better phrase may be socially unaware. She does not care for the limelight of her brilliance or any other accolade. She just wants to solve the puzzle. She could be someone with Asperger’s, but the show never says. But, speculation will run rampant with fans.
