Tried to refill prescription on Walgreen's app. It told me to phone the pharmacy. Last Monday and this Monday and last Thursday, I phoned Walgreen's for my prescription. Two phone calls each day. 45 to 119 minutes per phone call. On hold. Then it hung up. Did not get a chance to talk to a pharmacist...

39 right now. There are a lot of things that I regret having done. However, I am glad that it is over. Even if I get shot with a gun tomorrow and drop dead, 39 is already long enough. Quality versus quantity. I could have made better or worse choices. The circumstances beyond my control could have b...

Your reason to become a doctor, to me, doesn't sound like the greatest reason However, not everyone that succeeds at becoming a doctor, has the greatest reason What kind of education do you have right now? Is your health good enough to handle the sleep deprivation of medical school? What other occup...

Looks like most Aspies don't want person-first nomenclature then. It seems that health professionals have decided what's good for us without asking. Personally I don't see why anybody would prefer person-first anything, but if a ND really wanted me to use it, then it'd probably be a case of "o...

That’s not necessarily the case…..though many “gifted” people happen to be neurodivergent. I agree with you. "Gifted" is not yet officially defined specifically enough to have any significant implications per se You can't separate nature versus nurture Merely being great at something, doe...

I think "Autistic" and "Autistic Person" are both viable candidates. I'll admit that when I think about it, I'm not too crazy about "Person with Autism". To me that sounds like Autism is some kind of viral infection. But, other folk might like the term. Youre missing t...
