When Spiritual People Attack

Have you ever been attacked by someone in writing? It can hurt without a doubt… and when someone doesn’t know you, and writes slanderous things that just makes you wonder about them, does it not? Some of you may know this newish ‘spiritual’ person to Darwin and may have even gone to her. It’s BEYOND my comprehension what her issues are, as I’ve never met the woman and wouldn’t associate with the likes of her or those that do… instead I send love and set it free… check out my latest article and remember you chose how you respond to anyone being less than nice.

Hello, please read my latest article as it outlines how I nearly gave up my business until ‘spirit’ gave me a reason to stay. I trust you’ll enjoy.

Asperger’s Education

Tammy’s Tarot and Healing

Education

I sometimes get labelled as wilful, uncooperative, a trouble maker, and intentionally displaying “bad” behaviour. I know better. My family know better. My friends know better. Anyone who understands Autism/Asperger’s knows better.

My actions are my way of communicating—a direct reflection of my confusion, agitation, and exasperation when dealing with people who chose to judge and not understand. Who look at my behaviour as though I’m simply being a brat – even when they have been given information to the contrary that I have Asperger’s and so therefore I am different.

When the condition is explained to people, many are dismissive and clearly, they insist, “Tammy is displaying noncompliant behaviour.” Someone recently wrote I was being ‘silly’.

In their eyes, I am strong-willed, stubborn, and defiant, and their response is to try to break me—to treat me as a trainer would treat a horse. To break me to meet their standards of behaviour because surely I am just being a pain in the ass for the sake of it.

Some have even gone as far to slander my business and my name, because they simply do not understand the condition and who I am as a person. Their response is to tell people Tammy is ‘dangerous’ and should be doing the work she does.

What do educators and society offer to help people with Autism and Asperger’s learn to communicate? Practically nothing. The way of society seems to focus first on controlling a person’s behaviour, and, only after achieving success, to address the area of communication.

They have it all wrong.

People neglect to ask “Why?” They don’t listen carefully or observe closely. Instead of seeking to understand the person’s perspective and experience, they simply try to manage the behaviour. If only more people would seek to understand, rather than control…. please, please, please, I beg of you to at least ask why first before judgement and then control, control, control!!

I know for sure how I react to someone trying to control me is to become more frustrated and the more frustrated I become the more my behaviour is ‘wilful, stubborn and reactive’. It’s not a choice.

Please don’t judge another human being especially if you don’t’ choose to understand their background or medical conditions.

I’ve adapted this piece from the words of “Uniquely Human: A Different Way of Seeing Autism”

This is my way to educate through sharing my experiences (which some people view as over sharing, and yet I view it as opening the eyes of many who may never have experienced it before.)

The photo is of myself (in the turquoise, and my sister in the orange) and my nephews and niece. We all have Asperger’s (bar my sister) and we are all loving and beautiful and amazing.
