MORE LABEL DISCORD.

A friend of mine posted this link to my Facebook wall…well, actually, she is the LITTLE GIRL that I used to nanny, except that she is now 22!!!!

Ouch, that hurts Mama.

To sum up, Aspies are pissed that their label is being considered (by whoever writes the diagnostic manual of mental illness) as no longer a separate diagnosis.

Instead, they want to use an umbrella diagnosis of “Autism Spectrum Disorder”  and lump them in with all of the “Autistics.”

Mama says, why the hell do they have still have autism considered a mental illness diagnosis when it’s a neurological condition?

Also, again, I don’t care if they call it the “Mama Don’t Play That” disorder.  Just make my insurance pay for therapy.
