What gets me is not the volume of the environment, but how many different noise sources there are . Standing next to a pneumatic drill. Pah! Piece of cake. Supermarket with radio, kids, tills, squeeky wheels, talking, trolleys clattering, doors banging ...... etc. Where is the exit. A very loud sing...

The correct volume on our downstairs telly is 45.

My upstairs telly is 20.

Any other numbers are just plain wrong in our house.

I would be wary of putting down too much about your good days. Also be prepared to be turned down. Be prepared to have to appeal. If you have to go for an assessment take someone with you and get them to take notes of what is said. I've not had to apply for PIP myself, but know of people who have.

No it isn't.

There are a million and one things to do that are better, more interesting, more fullfilling, etc, etc, than that.

In the deepest portion of the sleep cycle called REM sleep , working memory is stored into long term memory. Generally if you cannot achieve REM sleep, the working short term memory is not stored and the information is lost. So adequate sleep is fairly important. Interesting. Explains why when I ha...

Working memory is like the RAM of a computer - limited but useful for holding and retrieving "stuff" you are doing right now. Your memory memory is like the HDD of a computer - much bigger, but harder to find stuff, but used to call up well worn routines. I find that if I want to remember ...

I got to my 40's before anyone suspected anything. I think it was because I was always happier on my own. I never tried to socialise any more than I had to. My parents are quite asocial as well and I think that helped hide things. I am sure if I'd been dragged out to social functions and family gat...

Some of what youre saying sounds like the opposite of autistic. Austistics are supposed to get overwhelmed by sensory overload in public places, and overloaded by conversations in parties, and to not be able to follow conversations. NT musicians can zero in on the person playing the instrument they...

I think you're right. The music was designed for us, we have good hearing and on top of that we were able to perceive harmonic combinations through the systematization. I suspect singer Kane Strang is an asperger, listen to his song "Oh So You're Off I See". So youre saying that music was...

The best thing to do....is to do your job to the best of your ability. And don't do other people's jobs (I'm definitely not saying that you're doing that. Hopefully, you are assigned a certain task to do alone, and other people are assigned certain tasks to do alone. There is too much emphasis on &...

I've had two jobs. The first was working in a small shop in the warehouse, occasionally working on the shop floor. There were about 15-20 people there and we were all different ages, creeds, race, background etc. My second job was in a factory and I was there for a long time. If I was in a role that...
