Who else here is diagnosed with autism/aspergers/ASD? What are your symptoms? What are your special interests? How long have you been diagnosed for? I hate how autism is used as a joke now, especially on the internet. It’s like people who say they have OCD because they like organizing things.

Wasn't officially diagnosed until the age of 18 but my moms told me that she could tell from the moment the doctors handed me to her that I wasn't "normal". I'm moms third child and apparently I was the first one to actively resist her upon first being held. Normally there's a strange oxytocin based high right after giving birth that keeps you shackled still as a newborn or something I don't really know.

But ya being a burg in society is hard but I wouldn't trade who I am for what iv ever seen anyone else be.

>I hate how autism is used as a joke now

Naw its fine, awareness is important but I guess the issue is how people don't understand anything about it and just assume its a synonym with down syndrome. You could call psychology one of my special interests so thinking back on it I have wasted a lot of time clarifying the difference to people.

i was diagnosed with autism in my childhood but i've sadly none of the "cool" aspects of it like obsessive niche interests or at least it faded away as i grew older.

I'm a diagnosed asperger since over nine months already. I'm 23 years old.

My special interest is making music (literally mostly harsh noise and experimental stuff in general, it's pretty good for someone like me, who otherwise can’t do anything right), also basically everything else to waste my time, like walking, reading, watching videos / movies, listening to music etc.

Yes, autism is a joke on the internet, but I didn't care about it at all, becaue it's just a stupid phenomenon for more or less regular people, which have nothing better to do, than to deal with this kind of stuff, actally sad for them in some sort, but I think this is how they compensate for events they didn't even try to understand.

I am currently on autism therapy. A therapist comes to me once a week for two hours each to talk with me about my everyday life and also my thoughts about certain things.

Has anyone of you experience with autism therapy?

 No.245927

i have been called asperger and autistic by a few people in real life, i dont like being called that. my commander said i had aspergers when i got discharged from the military. ive never been to therapists or psychologists or whatever you need to do to get diagnosed so they shouldnt be saying stuff about me. i can relate with stuff i read about aspergers but i've rationalized my entire way of life so it's hard for me to admit im behaving this way because im autistic. i would rather continue believing my judgements about life, about work not being worthwhile, socializing being a waste of time, people being obstacles… i want this all to be conclusions i've arrived at through rational deliberation

I had a court hearing today about an a 60-something autist living alone in an apartment and terrorizing his neighbors and landlord for years with loud noises, singing, screaming, threatening behavior, scaring off hired workers, repeated harrassment, criminal conversion and so on. There was a disturbance report with like 300 different indicents on it. He genuinely did not understand the widespread assblast he was causing just by being himself. Now he's probably going to get booted out on the street. Conceal your power level, wizzies.

It started with the guy getting pissed about the elevator not working. He had no trouble using the stairs himself, but was offended on behalf of the older people in the house. So he called up the landlord's property manager and shouted at him about it. The managed got an elevator technician to go out and fix the elevator. While the technician was working, the tenant wandered into the elevator machine room and shouted at the technician that he was an incompetent idiot who couldn't even fix elevators. The technician got spooked by the sudden attack, accidentally snagged a naked cable and got hit with 240 volt.

Later there were contantly problems with the elevator because the elevator guys refused to go out to the house without escort, since they were afraid of the tenant.

The tenant in turn only got more pissed that the elevator didn't work. Over the years he made hundreds of calls and voice mail to the manager, screaming at the top of his lungs about how the manager was a retard and an imbecile and everyone in the house hated him. The landlord CEO interjected and got the same treatment.

He had a habit of rage-calling and sending long emails in the middle of the night when he got roaring drunk. Some nights after he was done calling and emailing everyone, he got out on the balcony, turned on "I Can't Get No Satisfaction" by Rolling Stones on his stereo and shrieked along with the song. Other nights he went around the house and shouted profanities at his neighbors through the letter slots in the apartment doors.

One old succubus neighbor got a restraining order against him for targeted harrassment. So he dutifully stopped harrassing her directly and instead started harrassing other neighbors by shouting at them about her.

So yeah, pretty savage.

Mostly the elevator. During his own hearing (a 2-hour rant) the elevator not working was his explanation for all the evil in the world.

It was a constant cycle of him sabotaging any attempt to repair the elevator, getting more angry that the elevator doesn't work, and sabotaging even harder.

Everyone testified against him. The landlords employees, the elevator guys, neighbors of all shapes and sizes, the lot. The only one who refused to testify was the elevator guy who got spooked and jolted. He's deathly afraid of him. The tenant also had to be removed from the courtroom multiple times because he interrupted the witnesses during the testimonies and shouted obscenities at them. It's a miracle he didn't get charged with contempt of court. We had a patient judge.

Not sure about his bux status since it wasn't relevant to the case. He does live on a very fine adress and he's been living there for 40 years. His life is about to get turned upside down pretty badly. Proably going to end up in some social housing for junkies and such.

An extremely invalid assumption.

Why should an Asperger not be able to like extreme noises?

I understand that noise itself can be very distractive for someone with autism, even for me, when I'm busy with something and I hear an unexpected noise in the background e.g. when someone enters the apartment or when other people are talking on the street.

Making noise music is just an activity that catches my attention for a longer time, like other autists play video games, writing their own programms and what not.

Yes, it's me, thank you for remembering me.

I bought some more or less cheap things like a old and used e-guitar, some distortion pedals and a mixer. Still looking sometimes for further equipment.

I have released a bunch of albums in the last months but I'm not really sure to post about it on this site.

Like I said, it's experimental noise music, so not necessarily suitable for the average music listener and the albums itself are quite long (up to one and a half to three hours each).

Status update. Angry autist lost on all accounts. But of course he didn't just back down, he appealed the verdict. And then he started sending emails to the landlord in Spanish, despite this guy having no connection to anything spanish or latino or whatever. A few days after his attorney turned in the proper appeal to the higher court, he sent in his own letter of appeal… in spanish.

The ride continues. We might end up in the Supreme Court at this rate. Can't say that would be good PR for autism.

I've been diagnosed but I'm not sure I trust the psychiatrist's judgment on this. I've always been conflicted between aspergers and schizoid, but I don't think I fit either very well.

>What are your symptoms?

I've had some symptoms that sort of fit the criteria but I'm not sure they're necessarily related or come from other sources:

General aversion to physical contact since I was a child. Particularly kisses (but that might be more OCD than ASD). I've also always been disgusted by bodily fluids, kept a separate glass of water to drink in and such. Some textures also made me feel bad and gave me frisson as a kid.

Speech development delay, but quick to learn how to read/write.

Very picky eater. I basically eat the same meals everyday.

Very sensitive hearing but general difficulty in understanding people in noisy places.

Had to learn social cues the hard way by studying people since I realized I had no idea how to behave in my teenage years. I still struggle with some things. Funny enough I never really gave a shit when I was a kid and it never bothered me. Only in my teens I figured out there was something wrong with "being myself".

Had to learn to look at people in their eyes when talking to them. I didn't even realize this was a thing until high school. Not sure if I had always been like that or if it was all the bullying that caused it.

Anxiety actually wasn't a thing until I was bullied into submission in my teens.

Always felt I was different/special. I sort of felt like I was something like a "chosen one" in my childhood and closer to an alien in human skin in my teens. Nowadays I feel more like a robot.

>What are your special interests?

This is one of those things that I don't think fit well with the ASD tag. I've always been into video games, but I only became more restricted to them after the teenage bullying. I like history and I'm good with identifying countries/capitals but that's more from grand strategy gaming and curiosity for useless trivia shit. I don't actually have deep knowledge of much, but I also notice specialists usually falter often in their fields too.

>How long have you been diagnosed for?

Some 3 years.

When I was a kid I also would see some illusions like pictures moving when staring at them for too long, photographs of people moving their eyes staring at me and seeing weird figures in the dark. I'm not sure whether this is related to anything, but whenever I mention it people act like it's some freak shit, so I don't know if many other people had it.

 No.248812

>What are your symptoms?
Symptoms are the usual social incompetence. I am incapable of taking care of myself or others, I can't communicate accurately with direct means, it's all covered in layers and layers of obfuscation. I've come to hate the misuse of language quite a bit.
Can't make eye contact. Don't like being touched without warning. Despise being near anyone against my will. Despise having to do anything on someone else's time and pace. Basically I have an enormous amount of baseless pride, yet without any of the confidence.

>What are your special interests?

I have regular interests. I care about art and storytelling in any form it appears in, also music. I like animals, nature walks and beaches. Just the most inane things you can think of I probably care about at least a little bit. I view interests from the perspective of them being medicine for your physical and mental well being so I prioritize variety and compatibility with mood. There are no big obsessions which is I assume what special interests are about. That, or I have too many to list.

> How long have you been diagnosed for?

Since I was a kid. They thought it was Tourettes at first then settled on Aspergers which is apparently not an official classification anymore. I haven't asked about it but I imagine I was taken in for having weird physical quirks like jumping from excitement and hand flapping. The former is gone, the latter is on its way out but can still resurface if I'm out of it.

Joking about it is fine in my books. I call myself a retard all the time, it's only accurate. Not that there's been many competent people in my life for me to feel confident not calling a retard on some level though so it's a bit of a meaningless word.

>>248805
I identify with the vast majority of this post. I've always assumed seeing things move is just daydreaming.
You're not actually seeing them move, you're vividly imagining what that would look like. I assume not everyone had an intense capacity for it.
I still daydream all the time but I have to put in more deliberate effort to get anything on the same level as a child's mind could produce.

I can no longer make it happen the same way as it did when I was a child, sadly. I think I lost a lot of my imagination/creativity (and many, many other things) as I grew up. I do daydream a lot too, I'm always distracted in some thought process and need to be "awoken" from them regularly. I'm not sure if this is part of the reason I became desensitized to external sensations. It's how I actually spent most of my time outside before I had a mobile phone to browse the internet on.

Worse, if you try to make your voice heard these paragons of virtue will use what you are as a weapon against you.

She would eventually figure out how to write her own script and kick you out, I think. Either way, I don't think most autism youtubers are legit because of the aforementioned issue of the awareness movement. Most people think autism is a perk that makes you smarter than everyone else and they pretend to have it to seem special. Nothing makes me cringe harder than seeing these people patting each other on the back for supposedly being more intelligent than others.

I may be a bit overly trusting, but most of the autistic channels I come across seem legitimate. And many of them have videos describing their official diagnosis in great detail. I've heard that many of the self-diagnosers eventually get bored and move on to a new issue to identify with.

A lot of the ASD vloggers will pay occasional lipservice to neurodiversity but most of their content focuses on their struggles.

They remind me of people whose kids or spouse makes them miserable 90% of the time, but who always start the conversation about them with "I really love X, but…" They have to tell themselves autism is at least partly a gift. To admit otherwise would send them into a deep depression, I suspect.

I honestly dont even think its a real disorder though. I'm pretty sure it is nothing more than a psychological condition and doctors are trying to put us on meds in a blantant attempt to oversocialize us (like 99% of people living today). I have autism too (not self diagnosed, I actually have seen a psychiatrist) I prefer solitude and limited speech. I'm not going to just talk to normalfag retards if it has to do with small talk bullshit. Honestly, if you have nothing important to say to me just shut your damn mouth. Just yesterday, I went shopping at walmart and this cashier took his sweet ass time and trying to make small talk with me. I seriosly wanted to tell him to shut the fuck up and bag my shit so I could leave. That was the last time I'll ever use anything but self check out.

All you're doing is proving you can't read. I didn't say neurodevelopment disorder, I said developmental disorder. If you ever had to deal with health insurance companies you would know these terms matter. I personally don't care. I don't give a shit what people call autism, mental illness or developmental disorder, what I know for a fact is right now, enough of the medical community states autism IS NOT a mental illness, and that is literally the law. Clinics for mentally ill pacients can, and will, deny autists treatment because of that, and that's exactly what they will tell you; Autism is not a mental illness. Health insurance will cover autism separately from mental illness. This is fact. Of course they won't bother making that clear though. You'll find it for yourself in the worst moment possible.

I wish your stupid ass was right though, because my life would be a lot easier. if enough doctors and law makers would just agree autism is a mental illness, lots of clinics would not be able to refuse treatment like they currently can and insurance companies would not have grounds to charge premium for a separate category.

>>249361
I wish! Semantics is everything to the scum making the laws and deciding what your insurance can cover.

because succubi are far more sociable that men are. if they werent, far more succubi would be diagnosed with autism. but, because being socially withdrawn is the most important factor, they arent being diagnosed with it. a veriety of factors can change the neuroligical structure of your brain, such as depression, masturbation, drugs, acting differently, our diet etc. just because someone is depressed (depressive disorder) make that person magically have a mental illness like psychiatrists and psychologists would like us to believe.

It is, unfortunately it's not enough (why not is beyond me) to make it a mental illness under the law. When trying to get treatment or paying for health insurance there's a clear line between developmental disorder and mental illness. It's treated like a separate thing. My guess is so they can scam you out of your money. I can't imagine any other reason to make separate categories and make it sure to word it as NOT a mental illness, and they certainly have doctors to back this up, otherwise they wouldn't be able to pull this off at all. Another thing you will often hear is that autism is not a mental illness, but a disorder that can trigger different mental illnesses.
That's actually where I am right now, trying to get a dual diagnosis. First you get diagnosed with autism, and then they will see what mental illnesses your "developmental disability" might have triggered.

It's beyond me tbh, fuck everything.

but what if it isnt a real mental illness tho? for example, there is such a thing as motor control disorders and ocd. what autism looks like to me is essentially a bunch of different psychological disorders combined with being an anti-social person. you could literally make up a whole plethera of disorders by using multiple disorders people already have

On purely medical terms I really don't care, and I won't pretend to know enough about the topic to even have an opinion.
My problem is much simpler. I have a sibling diagnosed with autism and I want his medical bills to be covered by insurance. What the insurance tells me is that autism is something else and has to be charged accordingly. Clinics will tell you the same thing. I tried to fight this with the help of a lawyer (so now I'm paying to a company that won't cover the bills and a lawyer to make them pay the bills and actually footing the bills themselves). Lawyer tells me the faster way is to have a dual diagnosis which, guess what, insurance won't cover it. So now I'm paying for everything I just told plus the psychiatrist to have another diagnosis done, though he may or may not decide that autism is a good enough of a diagnosis, in which case I'm back to zero. A reasonable person would then proceed to burn the fucking building down, but we'll see what happens, I'm optimistic.

He put a pile of chained-together old bicycles all over the parking lot so the other tenants couldn't park their cars on their (rented and paid for) parking places. He also chained some old bicycle frames to the storage room door so people couldn't access the storage. Still not sure where he got all the junk from.

I got a recent sound recording from one of the neighbors. Reportedly he was putting on a performance on his balcony some hours past midnight. In the recording there's him sign-screaming with muffled music in the background:

"I'm gonna smash your head
With a baseball bat
I'm gonna smash your head
With a baseball bat
FUCKING LANDLORD
I'm gonna smash your head
With a baseball bat
YEAH"

The recording is like 10 minutes of him repeating this.

Lately he's also been heard screaming in the corridors that the landlord and the manager are a pair of "playboys", and that he has a gun and isn't afraid to use it.

He keeps sending emails to the landlord in spanish where he says that he's going to win in the court of appeal because he has "all the tenants behind him" even though all the tenants hate his guts and there are now even more testimonies against him than before.

Before the verdict he used to move in a gray zone, harrassing but avoiding clear threats, but now he's gone way over the edge. I think he's finally starting to realize just how bad his situation is.

You can get a mask waiver if you're autistic, but I don't want normans knowing I have the disorder. I've also heard normans are just laying into people for not wearing masks. They don't stop to ask if you have a waiver, they just immediately attack you or put their camera phone in your face.

Have you guys ever browsed sites set up by the relatives and spouses of autistic people? They're pretty interesting. The most hard-hitting, politically incorrect one (the Scandinavian site "Heartless Asperger's") appears to have been shut down, but there are still others around.

Some aspies call them hate sites, but I don't agree at all. Yes, the world is hard on us, but autistic people are not saints and some of them really mistreat the people around them.

So many of the stories follow a similar format: The aspie does their best to hide their disorder until they're married. Then they give up (or are too exhausted to keep) trying to seem NT. The NT spouse now feels blindsided and disillusioned, wondering where the person they fell in love with went.
>My wife has High functioning Autism
She was beautiful. Everyone liked her. She was kind, loving and very generous. She had a high profile job in education and liked all the things I did. We had wonderful times at rock concerts, parties with my friends, picnics and dinners. She helped me whenever she could with my work. I returned all this affection and love with gratitude that I had finally found the succubus of my dreams. That I had found someone who could love this red headed motor bike riding man. We could hardly wait to get married and start a family.

It all very swiftly turned into a nightmare. Ten months after our marriage when little Georgina was born, nothing would ever be the same. My wife became very distant and cold. I thought it might be post-natal depression and encouraged her to see a doctor. She wouldn’t go. She denied there was a problem. She was still working in her job and the baby was going to day care. Whenever I tried to talk to her about what had changed in our marriage she shut down. She refused to talk. She didn’t cry or run away; just coldly refused to acknowledge anything was wrong.

I fucking hate masks and how everybody wants you to wear one. They can't force you to wear one if you have a medical reason not to, and where I'm from they aren't even allowed to ask for proof. Just tell them no. Worst case scenario, you can wear the mask with your nose completely exposed so you can breath. It won't do anything to stop the spread of Coronavirus, but normans think that masks are magic, so they won't give you shit.

>As I read the most recent posts, it came to mind that one of the reciprocal expectations in an adult relationship is trust. And, that is something we can never have with a person afflicted with Asperger's. The Aspie "relationship" begins with deceit. We fall in love with someone who does not exist. And, we find out slowly or quickly depending on how long each Aspie can keep up the mask. Once we find out, we can never trust them again. We ask ourselves, what else have they lied about? Are we simply momentary distractions from their netherworld? Whatever their motivation, it is always dishonest and always hurtful. They need to stop.

The neurotypicals often say that they end up becoming the mother or father to their autistic spouse. At first the autists pretend to be very charming, attentive, and head over heels in love, but once they know they have the NT ensnared many of them become emotinally cold and celibate. Some even stop working and have the NT handle all the financial and household duties.

It's a very interesting survival strategy. The aspie is almost like a parasite that attaches itself to the NT host. The NTs that find aspies attractive are often highly empathic. The aspie sucks them dry, giving them little in return.

As for the active cases I don't really know and honestly don't care much. They will freak out and spin any numbers to back up their fear mongering anyway, and it's not like this disease is dangerous to anyone below the age of seventy.

Yesterday night I went for a walk and some lady started yelling at me for not wearing a mask. I just apologized and claimed I forgot it and she went on a rant about how people like me are why so many people are dying and literally pulled the "think of the children" card. I should note that I was never within 6 feet of anyone, or even 10 feet for that matter, until she came at me to scold me. She told me if she sees me without a mask again she's calling the cops.

I have a difficult enough time breathing through my nose even without a mask due to severe nasal polyps, which I got surgery for twice but they just grew back after like 6 months.

The bad thing about being a really high functioning autistic is that, even if you manage to nail down great social skills, fitting it with the normals and socializing with people still feels oddly artificial. Almost like being a sociopath trying to fit in.

But then again i wouldn't be surprised if Autism was really just a PC term for sociopathy because the symptoms for both really coincide.

These days i feel out of place on any community based around autism because i'm not one of those ""high functioning"" manchildren who flap their hands and play with literal fucking toys. I don't mind masking because i actually put effort into analyzing and imitating the social cues yet everyone there treats trying to fit in with the sheepies like an absolute torture and demand that society as a whole caters to them instead.
Those who would have been "people with Aspergers" back in the 2000s have basically no voice in the community nowadays because they don't act autistic enough, which is ironically the sort of shit that the neurodeviants tried to get rid of in the first place. On some places you even get mocked for being high functioning to the point of masking near-perfectly because MUH PRIVILEGE.

I miss when the whole idea behind the movement was just "autistic children shouldn't be automatically sent to mental asylums"

If you can fit in perfectly, then you don't really need an autism website. I can't imagine mastering social cues or anything like that to the extent where it wouldn't be noticeable.

What reason do you have to be part of autism communities if you can pass perfectly well as a neurotypical? If anything autism communities are not hostile enough, people who don't suffer any of the consequences of autism like succubi and the high functioning don't belong, most of them are annoying braggarts who act as apologists for neurotypicals while constantly shitting on actual autistics for not being functional. You didn't put in any special effort, you are just lucky to be higher functioning than the others, 80% of autistic college graduates are unemployed and being autistic takes two decades off your life expectancy. What problems do the high functioning have to deal with that they need to post on autistic forums? They just whine all the time about other autistics making them look bad anyway

And yes society should cater more to autistics because it's society's fault they're suffering so much, a hundred years ago autistic people could live in the world just fine, now thanks to public schooling and workplace culture they're having a much more difficult time

I just ordered a few books on NVLD. After I read them I might make an NVLD thread on /wiz/. More wizards should know about this learning disability. Over the years a lot of wizards have described having learning issues consistent with NVLD, which is no surprise since it seems to frequently co-occur with Asperger's.

Yeah I'll be honest, if I have had known about it earlier on, I'd have been able to avoid making a lot of bad decisions based on "I can do well if I try really hard" because I knew I had these problems but I didn't realize how bad my situation was so when other people would progress at things and I stagnated no matter how much effort I put into them, it was inexplicably frustrating. Then the even worse part is usually the fall back for people who aren't good at cognitively intense stuff is physical labor and with NVLD having shit motor skills means you will fuck up a lot and get fired. The social aspect eliminates any sales type or other customer-oriented stuff as well. It is truly playing life on nightmare mode since it's not visible but so impairing.

it's still is funny. I think it just that teens are fucking edgy about it and toxic as possible. So instead of just laugh at it, they have this need to annihilate and bully and mock the person into the ground. Like all kids are.

I have aspergers and I'm honestly glad I do. My obsessions have made me prioritize my hobbies over perusing hopeless relationships with succubi. From early on I realized that this world isn't meant for me, only problem is that the world I have retreated to, the internet, is being infested with succubi and normalniggers trying to make it more like their realm.

>What are your symptoms?

I hate light and touch. I have to write a schedule of things to do everyday or I will have a melt down (even though I am a NEET). I get wrapped up in one or two interests and don't do anything outside of those things. Also the normal shit like eye contact and crowds. And most importantly I don't understand most people's emotional reactions toward things.

>What are your special interests?

Music and anime. Anime was something I got into in my teens where as music has been a lifelong interest.

>How long have you been diagnosed for?

Not very long actually. My entire school life consisted of my teachers telling my mom that I should get tested, but her refusing because she wanted me to be treated like a normgroid.

Autism is a joke because normalniggers hate us. They hate that we see through the bullshit of their social interactions and emotions. Their propaganda doesn't work as strongly on us because we have our own specific interests and routines. This is why autists should aim for wizardry, because groids will forever want us dead and succubi will moralize at us for our reclusive ways.

I have autism. I get obsessive thoughts and find it hard to emotionally connect with people (as I’m sure many wizards do), among other things. My special interest is walking. I’ve been diagnosed for a few months.

 No.254132

I am kinda glad to have it but without it I would probably had ended up a normal but it's impossible to know that.

>What are your symptoms?

I don't feel love or show much emotion. I don't want to express them and don't exactly know how it feels wrong doing so. The worst thing about my mental situation is being dyslexic and having challenges with calculating things just doing basic mathematical actions so I am not just autistic I am retarded autist as well which makes life just wonderful. Hate touch, crowds very loud sounds all the usual stuff though I don't have meltdowns. I have high functioning variant.
>What are your special interests?
It's sort of changing over time focusing from one to another over the years but I still keep some interest in what I liked. I was heavily into history at school but learning I won't make a career out of it I stopped being so into it, not being able to remember dates required for it was a cut off as well. Then it was old technology, computers but after dropping out of college I became fascinated by drugs. I have tried dozens of drugs and know a shitload about them. I like purifying, creating one type of drug to the other and course the effects they give. I like to think they are the this world's magic potions.
>How long have you been diagnosed for?
since highschool. I knew something was off with me I wasn't just a loner as other loners still had friends and were social. Went to psychiatrists and found out. They say I also had some ADHD symptoms as well but since my countries mental institutions were a joke at that time I just got diagnosis and that's it never been to the psychiatrists since then.

IIRC Tony Attwood said the autistics who "only" have the classic core social issues and perhaps a few mild sensory problems are the subgroup of ASD that has the best outcome. After reading many ASD memoirs and countless blogs and articles it's my opinion that most of those upbeat "autism is my superpower" types are reasonably high IQ members of this subgroup. One ASD YouTuber I watch has taken to calling them the "autistic aristocracy."

If you have more severe sensory issues and co-morbids like anxiety, OCD, depression, etc., your likelihood of a good outcome is far less certain.

>WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange has Asperger syndrome and depression, court hears
In two precedent-setting cases, the UK refused the extradition of Gary McKinnon in 2012 and Lauri Love in 2018 to face hacking charges in the US on the grounds that they had Asperger syndrome and depression – conditions that would put them at risk of suicide.
Over the past two days, medical experts told judges at the Old Bailey that Assange had depression and autism, and hence would be at high risk of suicide if the court ordered his extradition to a US prison.

Hiding in an embassy is a terrible idea. Why did he not move to an anti-US country like Edward Snowden did?

He was in a different situation. He didn't think he'd be arrest in the UK but then he was and had to surrender his passport and everything, so he broke bail and couldn't easily escape country. Snowden only just got to Russia in time without prior notice of who he was and they were forcing planes down to find him.
