I agree, if Sherlock in the TV series comes off as ASD, that is a true reflection of the original stories. In the stories, Holmes seems to have a huge number of Aspergers traits to me, such as his obsessional interests, attention to details, high intellect, reliance on narcotics, and inability or un...

I'm having trouble deciding whether to get a booster (3rd dose). In general, I think vaccinations are a good idea, and I had 2 Pfizer shots, the last was back in July or August I think. But I got a rash on my arms and chest after the second shot which I thought might be an allergic reaction. Also, I...

I'm actually coping OK at the moment, as now my kids are older they can look after themselves a bit more. But because they're still living at home and not working, and therefore dependant on me, I've developed some kind of "health anxiety". Whenever I get a bit ill, I start catastrophising...

Nope. I only got diagnosed a few years ago - as I don't "seem" very autistic, and my son got diagnosed just after me, which was quite late at age 17. (What can I say, I thought his autistic traits were pretty normal, until I discovered I was on the spectrum and he must be too, and my unfat...

it was not only the thought of being clapped away in a nursing home [something i will avoid at all costs] but the looming gigantic medical debt i would have racked up if that had happened, as it was i owed them $53k!! the nursing home would have made that a 6-figure debt that i'd never have been ab...

I'm expecting that government leaders are going to become figureheads whose sole role is to tell us via. the media whatever it is the big corporations and multi-millionaires have decided is best for the continuation of business and the making of profits.

Or maybe we're there already?

A lot of autistics have a dysregulated nervous system, that means we react differently to stress. This is physical as well as mental, because our bodies do not produce the right amounts of the stress hormone cortisol. Normally our cortisol levels are too low - so when something stressful happens, ou...

Thanks for the interesting video.

I found this one about communication. It's a bit basic but still good to help us remember how to start off a conversation.

That's rough. It sounds like you may have similar issues to me in being unable to advocate for my family's needs very well. Somehow people never seem to realise I need help, even when I outright ask for it , yet other (presumably NT) women seem to be able to get whatever they need straight off, even...

I enjoyed that series.
Though it was a bit of a tear-jerker, and I wished they'd concentrated more on the unravelling of clues about the deceased persons instead of diverting into character relationships and emotional stuff.

The flaw in Dox47's argument is that he is taking prices to be fixed. If the minimum wage rose, that would apply to all small businesses, hence all would need to raise their prices to avoid going out of business. So businesses such as cafes, hairdressers, small retailers and so on would need to char...

I side with the kid in terms of defending his sibling, but not with the language he used.
As others have indicated, if the mother does not pull him up for that kind of language, she's an enabler.
Correcting the kid on his language is not the same as siding with the pestering woman and against him.

Well, you could say that eating contributes to diabetes...
But seriously, no. A healthy diet for diabetics usually includes lean meat, together with plenty of vegetables.

Meat is very good for the health.
Just go for good quality, ethical sources, and eat small quantities.
Avoid the processed stuff, like hot dog sausages, those are toxic.
