    My Medical Provider has said that even though I am in my 40's due to my Autism(Aspergers Syndrome) I have the actions & reactions of a 17 year old instead of someone in their 40's,etc. . I recently went to my Medical Provider for some other health issues related to my Autism(Aspergers Syndrome) & while I was there I decided due to my Autism(Aspergers Syndrome) that I would have my Medical Provider(Doctor) sign the NCDMV Form for me to get a handicap placard as sometimes it is hard for me to walk around in a grocery store after walking on concerate floors(carpet covers the concreate) at work & sometimes due to my Autism(Aspergers Syndrome) I can be walking normal & all of a sudden almost trip over my own feet(so to speak) & so I presented these facts to my Medical Provider(Doctor) & he refused to sign the handicap placard paperwork due to the fact that I am able to walk,etc. & I am thinking about totally changing Medical Providers(Doctors) over this as I have to drive at least 30 minutes or more each way back & forth to the doctor now. I am also thinking about sending an email to someone in goverement about maybe adding Autism(All Levels of Autism) to the handicap placard form.
