Autism and Mental Illness often go hand and hand together. Mental Illness is not caused by autism rather it is a mental disorder that can coexist with autism. When autism and mental illness coexist together and can be challenging to understand which is which or what symptoms are caused by the autism and which symptoms are caused by the mental illness.
In this book we will examine autism and mental illness and discuss how to tell which is which. The author (Travis Breeding) has both autism and mental illness. For a few years Travis has experienced severe psychotic symptoms that arise from being mentally ill. These symptoms were going on since 2005.
Travis has seen many different doctors over the past 10 years. He was originally diagnosed with Bi-Polar disorder and Obsessive Compulsive disorder in 2007 then another doctor in 2010 told him that all he had was autism. Then finally recently Travis was diagnosed with Autism and Schizophrenia from his current doctor.
With all of the confusion with diagnosis Travis thought the psychotic symptoms he was having was a direct result of having autism. Autism typically does not cause psychotic symptoms though because of situations that happens socially a person with autism could easily develop mental illness.
Because Travis did not know he had any other diagnosis he blamed all of his psychotic symptoms on autism. In this book we will learn how Travis finally received his mental health diagnosis that allowed him to stop blaming autism for all of the symptoms he was experiencing.
In Part I of Autism Versus Mental Illness we will learn how mental illness has more of an impact on Travis than Autism does. The question is simple, which is worse? Autism or Mental Illness: Travis shares his thoughts on the answer to that question with us in this great series.
