There is something called Campbell Interest and Skill Survey that you can take and it will reveal areas that you lean toward, that you should consider for a career. They have a web site (search for it) but you may have to work thru a counselor of some sort.

Anything you can do with computers holds promise, especially now with all of the robotic applications. Robotics are growing exponentially and every last one of them has to be installed, programmed, maintained, upgraded, and either repaired or declared not cost effective to repair. Someone has to do ...

So they actually put your desk in a box. That is so intriguing because I still remember sitting in 4th grade wishing my desk was in such an enclosure. I can still see the picture I constructed in my mind of what it would look like. But I never told anyone about it. I was going to ask why you were no...

Low blood sugar/hypoglycemia, perhaps? Having a busy day working from home, do you eat anything along? If so, is it sugar laden? Low blood sugar is what it turned out to be when similar happened to me. I'm here if you have questions.

Some years back I came out in a painful, itchy rash but after several doctor appts, none of which resulted in any relief, I took matters into my own hands. I eliminated some of the most common foods that people can be allergic to, eggs, wheat, nuts, one or two others, and after a few weeks the rash ...

I heard from my local mail carrier that USPS cannot get enough people. And they make it easy to apply at their website: usps.com. Scroll to the bottom and click on careers on the left.

Am I alone? Yes. There's only two family members left and they dont speak to me but that's actually a good thing. All I ever got from them was a hard time anyway.

Am I lonely? Not at all. I am free to live my own life, do what needs doing when I feel the time is right to do it.

So life is good. 8)

I just finished reading a very helpful book by Tony Attwood, "The Complete Guide to Aspergers Syndrome". It is copyright in 2007, during he DSM IV era, but everything he says is just as relevant today as it was then. In fact here is a link where you can download your own copy: http://www.a...

KitLily, I am in a situation very similar to you. I am now down to chicken and fish and some vegetarian meals. I eliminated sugar from my diet back in the 1980s when my hypoglycemia got worse. Just after Y2K, I got so I couldn't digest eggs any longer (gave me a rash) so they were gone. A couple of ...

If anyone is still watching this thread, I wanted to report that my ear noise has now subsided entirely. The most significant dietary change I made was eating more fruit. I began eating blueberries on my yogurt with breakfast and having a fruit with lunch. At first peaches were in season so I had th...

Have you or the organization considered holding meetings via Zoom, and/or via text chat? To my knowledge, no. As I said this was a place where these adults could go during the day while their parents worked or at least got a respite. And it is my understanding that the place totally shut down once ...

I facilitated a small group last year. I became involved with an organization that provided a place for autistic (and other) adults to go during the day while parents worked. Some of these people had part time jobs but some didn't work at all. I don't recall that any of them could drive. They were i...

I am retired. I got into computers in the 1980s and was able to stick with it thru several contiguous jobs til I could retire. I got a masters degree while I was in the military (1970s) but its not computer related at all. So I was basically under-employed the whole time. But it matters not at this ...

Let me ask a few questions. These may seem out there but they refer to things that I have experienced keeping me from sleeping. Have you switched to synthetic material for pajamas or sheets/blankets? My covers have to be cotton as well as pjs if I wear any. Could you have too heavy covering? As with...

I used to do so fairly often. Those around me had to say something like "There's no need to shout."
