Does life get easier?

I have been diagnosed in the autism spectrum, been called dyslexic, ADD, ADHD primary initiative, but never depression. I don't understand anything life brings me, I'm 15... I make C's D's and mostly F's in school. I don't believe my grades reflect my own stupidity. I can not force myself to focus on the useless knowledge. It all becomes intertwined and looses me in it. I can't find a way, I've never done drugs. Nor do I plan to do so. I just want to know if it gets easier... I am not very religious, but do not let your answer be influenced by this though. Thank you for reading my ignorant thoughts... And possibly answering them.

its ok, i know how you feel. sounds like you are very confused? i went through a period like that, but it went away. its like you cant understand anything in your head, and nothing feels happy, just numb and doesnt make any sense. im better now, hopefully you can get better too, give it some time, maybe talk to your doctor, because i know that i got raging depression right after i got better, so be careful. but i definitely get what youre saying

everybody has a difficult point in life. im having a hard time right now too. Life will get easier if you help it do so. Be happy. Exercise. Relax. The best thing to do about your mark is study for tests. I don't doubt that you're smart, but studying does help a lot with your grades. Trust me, this'll make you feel a lot better.

Yes, I am... We have tried to get me into another class. But I live in a small town of less than 2000 people and came from a larger one, and they either subconsciously hate me because of it. I have tried many times, but also the teacher for those classes are not the best at all! They treat the students as though they are handy capped because of dyslexia.

Stop putting yourself down. You were created by God and He made you perfect because He loves you!
What's going on in your life? I was diagnosed with things myself and what it boiled down to was I was a person coping with severe abuse. Not saying that's your case but something is going on. When I turned my life over to Christ, He revealed the truth about my early life that I hid and why I was the way I was. I've completely healed. The limits I put on myself no longer exist.....Is there an older person you can trust to talk to?

Finding something you're good at may take a life time . . . It may be something small . don't thank people are going to be any help but do ask anyway . ...Don't hang around people that are losers and that have no future ..Do not be making babies you can not take care of ..Stay free to move around With nothing to hold you down ..Try new things and volunteer . Good luck

First of all you are not ignorant. You are seeking help and to me that makes you smart. If you take meds for your conditions maybe your taking the wrong kind. If your not taking any maybe you could consider speaking to your doctor about it. Im not one for taking meds but if they will help you succeed in life its worth it. I wish you luck! There are so many people out there dealing with the same issues as you. Put your worries in Gods hands! He said in his word he would not put more on us then we could bare. You sound like an amazing kid. You have your whole life ahead of you. I hope its full of blessings and happiness!

First of all Rapper you are very articulate, I don't see you being ignorant of anything except for the fact that life throws you curves and it really is what you make it. ( cliche' I know)
You need to find some happiness, interests, excitment, hobby, sport, new friends. If you can tweak your attitude you will begin to see little changes, humor helps. Try the old half full technique, your diagnosis is more common than you think, google celebs and more importantly people who have contributed greatly with these disorders. Good luck! P.S. no 15 year old understands what life brings them, in fact most of us don't. : )

Who diagnosed you? A medical doctor or psychologist?

I believe a psychologist diagnosed me with ADD. But I wish I could remember what the lady that diagnosed me with dyslexia and autism was.

My wife is a school psychologist. She tests, then designs IEP's for student like you all the time. She loves watching her students grow and develop into better people. It will take effort on your part, but with a good development team supporting you, it will get easier.
Report as
I've been trying to get either an IEP, or something to that effect sense the first day of sixth grade. Now I am in my second attempt of 8th grade...

They have never done a thing for me.

Cliche as it sounds, it only gets as good as you make it. Focus your attention on what makes you happy; when you find yourself complaining or pulling yourself down, just stop! Try to look for things to be grateful for! Over time, it'll be easier to spot the good things in life, and your perception of what life is comprised of will shift from the negative to the positive. I used to be miserable; all I did was change what I paid attention to, and my life has changed!

Albert Einstein flunked out of school yet he was one of the most brilliant thinkers of our time. Because you are autistic life will be difficult but it does not mean you are stupid. Many of the most intelligent people both and in history and now are believed to be or have been on the spectrum. Im sorry no one is helping you through this. You might research your area and see if there are autism support groups. They may be able to help you find resources to asisst you. Talk to your parents about tutoring with someone who knows how to work with autists. Also see if you can find some good books on autism for them to read and maybe it will help them understand.
I will suggest trying Omega 3 supplements. Can promise they will help but they are supposed to be excellent for the brain. Also try a good quality multivite and a good B-complex supplement

From reading your question, it's hard to believe you have any learning disability, your writing skills are excellent, are you sure you're not just bored. Einstein was a bad student, it bored him, he was a dreamer. You seem to be capable. I think you should be re evaluated, I think someone dropped the ball in your case
