Had you not heard about this before, Hal..?

You were around on the old site, mate.. don't you remember the aspergers clique..?

There used to be a lot of talk about comorbidity between bp and both the autism spectrum and epilepsy.

Mocha is about to jump in on this and be informative, just wait...

I'm not Mocha and I'm only informative by accident, but I thought I'd throw in there that I'm partially dyslexic (only predictive text saves my legibility). I didn't look it up or anything, but I'm pretty sure dyslexia is on the mild end of that group. I've always thought it was linked to the BP.

Any other dyslexics out there? Out of curiosity, how about a head count? :)

No... But... I have to admit.

For a long time I've associated with the emotional overload I get to the sensory overload that is associated with autism. It feels exactly like that is described as to me, only on an emotional level.

I also don't do great with overstimulating places like shopping malls.

:lol: :lol:
oh god yeah, I remember ....that was when Kassie was here and a few other Aspies from CM (not talking about crazymedic...:roll:. we don't refer peeps to that site any longer) It was years ago.

But yes, we've known for years about the connection between autism spectrum, bipolar, epilepsy, migranes and some studies have mentioned dyslexia.
I would have to round up links/studies/articles to support the connections and I'm just not inclinded to do all that right now...too lazy/tired and already have enough on my plate... :lol:

I had them all on the old blue site....sigh...


sorry BG.....not very informative...... :lol: :twisted:

hal.....thanks for posting the article.....it was very interesting ...... :)

Pan, re: sensory overload.....yep, I've had probs with that before. some of it has to do with ptsd, some not.
