I am in my early thirties and I live with Asperger's Syndrome. I didn't know about Asperger's until my mid twenties. My entire childhood was spent being ostracised by other children for being different, and video games were my escape. Emotional abuse was just a part of life for me. I never considered myself a victim of PTSD, but I do remember a while back, I had a rather shocking flashback to repressed memories when my wife and I were discussing sending our child to school. Chief among these memories was the memory of being verbally and physically abused by older children on the school bus.
The thing is, even when you do understand a thing like Asperger's, it's still difficult to fit with "normal" people (or to use the jargon, neurotypicals). I mean, I've never been in a life-threatening situation on account of this, but I wonder if something like CPTSD could explain some of the emotional issues I live with.
Do you have any thoughts to share on this?
To me, the true outrage is that the drug company is gouging your sister and her insurance company for those drugs. I know of no other legal monopoly that has a heavily armed federal agency dedicated solely to its maintenance. (the DEA)
A real leader would tell the drug company where they can shove the $5000 price tag.
If I log onto a web site that uses geolocation to help me find something, of course I will share my location. If I log onto a web site to read news and it wants to know my location, I deny that every time. Why shouldn't it be the same with the battery API?
If you're not part of the solution, you're part of the precipitate.
