Jiu-Jitsu Outlet #14: Autism Is A Superpower

Posted by Paul Tokgozoglu on

Autism Is A Superpower - Jiu-Jitsu Outlet Podcast

Training in martial arts like Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ), Judo, wrestling, & Muay Thai is my outlet for improving my mental health and becoming a better person.

On this fourteenth episode of the podcast, I go solo and share my experience living life on the autism spectrum. This episode is longer than normal because I wanted to create a one-stop resource that someone who is autistic can use to improve their life and understand themselves better.

If you know someone who is on the autism spectrum or someone who has a family member or close friend on the spectrum, send them this episode! It might be a pivotal piece of information for them.

On this episode, I share all the tips and tricks that I've developed over the years to avoid panic attacks and stay out of "defense mode".

People on the autism spectrum experience life in high-definition thanks to their incredible ability to process information and energy. Autistic people can also can be plagued by panic attacks and a feeling of constant overwhelm if their lifestyle is compromised in any way.

You will learn about the importance of therapy, what it is like to experience "mind-blindness", and all the daily habits that keep me from having a panic attack.

In this episode, I make a strong recommendation that anyone on the spectrum try therapy. Talkspace is the online service that changed my life and helped me during my darkest hours. I was able to match with a specialist who I worked with for three years during my journey of healing.
