Asperger Syndrome; A Way of Life, but We are Still People too

I was talking with George the other day and he told me that i am a person first before I have Asperger Syndrome that because I have Asperger Syndrome doesn’t deny me the right to be a person.

I am a person and that is right George because I am person and the reason being for that is I have feelings too and I want to succeed just like the next person who is Neurotypical. Neurotypicals tend to live their lives all the time as if they neglect certain things that people with Asperger Syndrome struggle with.

It may seem that Neurotypicals who think they are better because they communicate better just goes to show you that they are stupid, ignorant, and naive. People with Aseperger Syndrome are smarter than most Neurotypicals in the world and you don’t need communication to be smart.

Communication is a broad term. Listening, Talking, Reading, Writing, Photography, Painting, … whichever it is that the person can communicate with is how everyone should accept it in the world.

Though, everyone should help everyone in the world with their weaknesses by using their strengths in order to help. The learning curve is very broad, but if you get all people Neurotypical and Asperger to give time to help out people to communicate effectively by their weaknesses than may be just may be this will be a better world we live in.

They’re some people like many general psychiatrists that don’t understand what goes on inside the mind of somebody with Asperger Syndrome and it takes a long time for them to realize till they read up on it and talk to experts in their field like autism specialist psychiatrists, neurologists, speech pathologists, …

The main focus in this world is for everybody to teach one another their strengths that others may be weak in like in communication.

No body has the right to tease or bully people because they have a weakness in something since we all have weaknesses and that all of us need to learn how to strengthen our skills in total.

But, we are all supposed to have the job that gives us the most satisfaction to dealing with our strengths. Some people may be good at writing while others may be good at drawing or others may even be good at photographer, or better yet Sonography.

This is the facts in Sonography in the medical field. There are a lot of places out with Tech’s in the field scanning Ultrasound whether its the heart, the vascular system, or general ultrasounds. Anyone can pick up a probe and start scanning, but with the proper skills and learning about how to get the images properly while at the same time knowing what you are looking at being knowledgeable secures who are the real Technologists and who are the Fake tech’s that just do it to make money.

Ultrasound is a field that is very hard especially the fact that you must look at every patient as unique and different and treat everyone the same no matter what you do. Vascular Ultrasound is the HARDEST modality in the field. It may be easy at first, but if you don’t think about the difference between one side or the other, then you are going to struggle and fail. Most people can not think critically when in terms of Vascular Ultrasound. Though George is the complete opposite of most people I guess because he has been doing this for so many years that he is trained to think critically.

The easiest modality to perform is General Ultrasound because it requires less thinking. Echocardiography or Cardiac Ultrasound requires Medium thinking because you are taking pictures of a moving structure, the heart, and cutting at different angles as a Technologist wonders what is going on in the heart.

There are so many tech’s out there that are trying to complete all three modalities, but may I stress this even more that Ultrasound is not meant to be done by one person doing all three modalities because they are all different modalities especially when Vascular is the hardest of the three and especially since it takes hardwork to learn to think the most critically a person can think. Anyone can do Vascular and think critically, its just that they have to be trained at it for years and years to become a superstar like George.

Some people feel that if they read a book about Ultrasound in a year, then they are set. Not the case at all, it takes practice practice practice and years of experience to get the knowledge you want.

People that have experience in the field need to give people a chance though to learn the critical thinking that is necessary to learn because the people with experience in doing so will not be around forever.

I have a friend who earned all three credentials and he seems very proud of that, yet is he really great for that. Not necessarily especially since he must keep up with three credentials and it CME’s and payments to the registry. Its too much for one person to do especially when you also want to have a life yourself.

According to my friend, some people can do it. But, I stress that very few can.

Anyway, all I am saying in this posting is that we need to help each other out using our strengths to help others with their weaknesses, but we also need to live our strengths the best way we can and know our limitations. We can all help our weaknesses to be better, yet our strengths is what helps us get to be where we should be at.

take it easy and have a great day, today is Asperger Syndrome Day in New York!

out, J
