Really? It took a very, very long time to get a doctor to help me figure out what I had, being an adult woman, and I know many others who can't get a doctor to give them the time of day. Like Sael said, I think autism is over diagnosed in young boys and under diagnosed in adult women, as the symptoms can be quite different.

All I know is I don't have a service dog, but fakers really upset me. I don't like seeing a disability used as a false excuse to do whatever you want. I do agree that dogs should be allowed in more places, though.

I'm not sure how it is now, but it was very common when I was in school. The old receptionist at my office's son was diagnosed with asthma and ADD... the "asthma" was really anxiety and the ADD was under stimulation at home.

My husband was diagnosed with "sports induced asthma" one year, and never needed an inhaler again after a couple of months. He played hockey almost every day of the week, ran track for years, played baseball, etc. Very active and into all kinds of sports. Definitely not an asthmatic.

I guess I should've re-worded it with Asbergers, but it falls under the autism spectrum so I just wrote autism.

Ever see the "ass burgers" episode of South Park? From what I've heard from moms with children in elementary school, asbergers is the new pink.

Oh sports induced asthma was all the rage when I was a kid, I swam competitively and I know exactly what you mean.

FWIW, I don't by any means agree it is right to accuse people of not having the diagnosis they have received.

It is merely the human way, newly labeled condition hits the papers and every mom swears their child has said illness and must be seen immediately.

At one point my doctors informed me I was bipolar, another told me I had aspergers, neither of which are correct and both of which came around their peek in the media. In turn, after the initial boom it seems diagnosis are always harder to get, they tend to over diagnosis and then back off and become slightly gun shy.

Another hot button topic, sorry, but it is interesting non-the-less.

Service dog or not, I would never bring a dog into a grocery store. "Would you like some dog hair with your potato salad?"

There have been exactly two times I brought a dog into a store. I did not claim they were SDs, though. But it was hot and I didn't want to drive home to drop the dog off and return. And in one case I was heading to a dog show in a neighboring city. On both occassions, I kept my dog(s) close to me and avoided other customers. Nobody said anything to me about them.

I know somebody who takes his big dog into the grocery store with him. The guy had polio has a child, so he looks like he needs a service dog. But he jokes about how he gets away with it. Really pisses me off!!

It sucks that so many things are over diagnosed. I sometimes feel when I tell people that I have asthma that they aren't going to think it's as serious as it is. One of my mom's best friend's son was legitimately diagnosed with ADD during that peak time where EVERYONE had ADD. It's not fun not being taken seriously.

YA THINK?? And yet here we are, not taking any of the SD handlers of Chaz seriously when we say faking an SD (or letting people assume your pet is an SD by taking it somewhere it doesn't belong, whatever the case may be) is wrong and does affect/harm uss. Way to go

I don't think that was the goal.

I think it may be time for you to walk away from the computer. I didn't say anything that should've caused that kind of reaction from you.

I'm not on a computer. And it's funny how someone who isn't affected by fakers wants someone who is affected by fakers to leave the conversation.

I suggested that maybe it's a good time, for your own sake, to walk away from this thread. You're interpreting posts incorrectly and twisting them around to make them the way YOU want them to be (me against you, which ISN'T the case at all). Then you're freaking out at ME when I haven't given YOU any reason to do so.
