I'm on the neurodiverse spectrum, diagnosed ASD and may possibly be diagnosed for ADHD spectrum in the future because it would explains other issues I have that aren't necessarily ASD related (e.g. handwriting) but I do have other tendancies like mild OCD.
Thomas Vaccinated kids are 3 times more likely to be diagnosed with ADHD... it doesn't cause it just makes the symptoms worse.
I'm pretty sure that's just generalisation, many factors could take into play and one of the suggested hypothesis is the age in which birth is given - as like human DNA reproduction inevitably resulting in DNA strand trimming and potentially causing problems such as cancer late in life, reproductive systems have an expiry date of sorts.
People around me knew what ADHD/ASD were but only after the internet popularised/dramatised the terms. It's supposed to be the teacher's job apparently to highlight key problems in child development, and clearly in my case, the traits were there but nobody knew about neurodiversity, it's kinda like how 20 years ago almost nobody outside closely nit circles cared about LBGT rights. ASD was alternatively called asperger's, named after a nazi scientist.
Unfortunately, much of the world's knowledge comes from atrocities and was only popularised after internet became more mainstream, and even still until I got diagnosed, my parents through ASD = retardation (low IQ) with mild specialisation. Which in a way, isn't too far off the more accepted definition in that ASD means lower ability in socialising, but is otherwise often compensated by higher ability in other areas, which is why to some I sound like a genius online but in actuality i'm outcasted and a bit of a blunt "dickhead" when it comes to real life interactions.
It's a shame I got diagnosed way too late for development intervention to be a viable option, my career and life has already been royally fked, so I just gotta live with what I can without the social support of networks.
But really it's quite a psychological problem for me because I "Think too much, but don't do enough"; and in some ways I also "Work harder, but not smarter"
