Nootropic to help me get over my autism?
  • OflameoOflameo September 2015
    I am looking for a Nootropic to help me get over my autism.

    I have been taking Alfa Brain, Nascent Iodine, and Beyond Tangy Tangerine. It is enough to get rid of nutritional deficiencies read by a basic blood test, but that alone wasn't enough to help me reach my goal.

    I have rejoined HackPittsburgh in December with a goal of putting myself through a socializing crash course while finding a good place to host my Linux Users Group. While it worked, it didn't get me much closer to my goal.

    My goal was to find a new job because the one I had sent me to the psyche ward for a day last year, but I still find it insanely hard to hold a dialog with recruiter and human resource types. I still can't speak their language, and there is no training course in existence that I know of that can get me there. I have looked for three years.

    Now that the back story is out of the way, I am ready to experiment, the only question now is with what.

    Most of the nootropics if anything make you MORE autistic, but that's not a bad thing.

    If you have social anxiety a nootropic isn't what you need, if it's bad ask your doctor for a beta blocker.

    For one thing.. I almost think there should be a floating disclaimer stating that don't diagnose our treat medical conditions. But... can you post your cbc and bmp labs?

    Probably one of the most interesting things I've thought about in a while.

    I would definitely agree with garethnelsonuk, most 'normal' nootropics will make you more autistic.

    I did a bit of Google'ing and found these, not particularly useful, but interesting none the less:

    I say I don't have autism, but I can relate to some of the problems autistic people have. One of the most useful things I do when I don't feel like I am being under stood by someone, is I use as few words as possible. So like "ware is the bathroom," I would say "umm Bathroom?" The trick to making use of there feedback is to analyze how complex of words they use and how much detail they go into, let's just say there response is "over there," and they point somewhere. That means they are not the sharpest knife in the drawer and you need to use the lest technical words you can, and when possible draw comparisons to a object or a simple experience. Like a capacitor to a battery, or a spring to a rubber band. My rule of thumb is the more details the more technical you can be. Another thing I would recommend would be while your learning the first trick is to tell them to stop you if you have any questions. If ironically enough is unclear let me know I will see about making a video when I have a chance. By the way I have no qualifications other than my experience and what has worked for me. Let me know if you have questions.

    Sincerely,
    John Doe

    I figured out something that works.

    I take 10mg of Noopept and 600mg of Alpha GPC 50% twice a day. I got both from, a great company, Powder City. It dampened my empathy so I can read people without being hit by empathy at the result of feeling how unprepared or ignorant other people feel.

    Then I switch in and out between impressions of Donald Trump, Stefan Molyneux, Joe Rogan, and Alex Jones. I also talk slower.
  • MeanderpaulMeanderpaul March 2016
    At risk of sounding ignorant what's the hardest part of being having autism? And I mean is it one part of it over the others? I don't know much except for what I have seen from a kid that went to college with me.
  • OflameoOflameo April 2016
    That is an easy one @Meanderpaul
    . The hardest part of having autism is that people keep Disrespecting My Time.

    @Oflameo
    That's everyone comrade....
  • OflameoOflameo April 2016
    @JohnDoe, hey buddy, you don't know the half of it. If you did you would understand why I am entertaining the thought of acquiring antisocial personality disorder.
  • JohnDoeJohnDoe April 2016
    I have a math teacher who does nothing but wine and bitch about me and a few others, I "argue" with her cause I try and explain what I don't understand. I had another one that untaught me chemistry, she couldn't even teach the same thing twice.... Then if you really really want to see people wast your time start a band.... Everyone becomes the next Adele of Eddie van Halen etc etc, then when you say no they go completely insane on you and wine and wine and bitch. My point is dumb people waste the time of people trying to do something in life. Then the other side of that is you are doing something worth leaching off of. Be annoyed and proud, of the wolf sheep and shepherd your a wolf. Hope things get better....
  • OflameoOflameo April 2016
    This may be a completely evil thing to say, but I would like the chance to get the dumb people do something useful for a change. Even if it as small as getting them to troll me so I can pretend I am so much better than all of them and at least get my confidence up.
  • JohnDoeJohnDoe April 2016
    No I get what you are saying, it's fair to give people a chance. Then if they try to screw you over than yea making them play into your hand is fair gain....

    By "Get over my Autism" are you referring to suppressing symptoms, or attempting to eliminate the disease itself? I have some limited experience dealing with severe autism as a clinician working with clients, but am not sure where you (you seem to be functioning well), might hope to go with utilizing nootropics or other augmentations to accomplish this. Have you had any luck yet?
  • OflameoOflameo May 2016
    @navigatorj I mean get rid of the symptoms. To my knowledge is that the only way to get rid of autism is build another brain.

    In fact I would prefer to get a co-morbidity of sociopathy because it will mitigate all of the downsides I was currently having. I am having lots of luck actually. The Alpha GPC 50% and Noopept is still working. I managed to stumble upon good material such as http://www.ribbonfarm.com/the-gervais-principle/ to use as a guide.

    Autism is not a disease, seriously - it's literally not a disease.

    Comorbids are of course a whole other issue and if you want to treat your actual problems, saying "autism" is not enough.

    Also, if you have actual problems a doctor is more appropriate than this forum.
  • OflameoOflameo May 2016
    @garethnelsonuk I want to build a ASPD comorbid so I don't fall for any more time wasting bullshit dumped on me by clueless people or money wasting bullshit from sociopaths.

    I spent enough time having my productivity squandered by the government school system. I spent enough time in corporate psychic prison.
