do you mind shutting up? yes, i have ADHD, and ADHD is often considered to be in the autistic spectrum, and so , why don't you shut up. i think i know. it's not like you are either. many adhd traits are shared in autism.

No, sir, I do mind shutting up. I made fun of your "problem." You can't pay attention, your easily distracted, and forgetful.

A lot of people are like that. Hell, I'm like that.

That's what Wikipedia says anyway. I'll be honest, I don't care if you have a serious disorder or a minor one or even a bullshit one, I'm going to express my opinions and consider you a normal person.

That doesn't answer my question now does it? no clearly you have no clue what Autism is (by that I mean Autsim and ADHD aren't the same)

autism is a brain disorder that impairs communication, social skills, and behavior. The person has extreme difficulties relating to others. Autos Means self with autism, the person withdraws into the self. it may seem as if people with autism are in their own world. They often seem uninterested in others. For example, they may not notice when someone enters a room. Or they may prefer to play alone. Some avoid physical contact or become very upset when touch.

how do I know I'm in the healthcare field.

I know that they are not the same. there are similarities.

do you as a doctor of health care have evidence that they are not? i simply said there are similarities and some with ADHD are in the autistic spectrum. i'm fed up of these dumb debates.

Upon reaschering it you are right, so I owe you an Appolige"A common symptom between autism and ADHD is that both camps suffer from gross and fine motor skills as well as the impulsive driven behaviors. In some cases, the autism behaviors reveal a deficit in being able to respond emotionally" So far that been the only simlairity they have found . No I'm personal support worker AKA Health care aide.
