I’ve seen several comments about wanting medical care providers to provide written instructions. Most providers i the US these days use electronic medical records (and hate them, for good reason!), and one feature of most electronic medical records is that they generate a AVS (after-visit summary) ...

Well-made fun movie! We enjoyed it.

If you can remember it is make-believe and ignore the off-screen side-stories: Recommended.

Two plausible reasons for having as little contact as possible with her: 1. Guilt by Association. You won't be the only person to figure out she is not a good person. And other people who consider her to be a bad person will also suspect those around her. 2. The odds are in her favor. You would have...

I think you already know you shouldn't tie your future to hers because your future would suffer.

Last night we watched: Dracula's Daughter [1936] <=> "She gives you that weird feeling!" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qa0jV3wsgZs The movie is OK but I don't think I'd recommend it unless you were an informed fan of the genre who really wanted to see it. I'm not exactly sure what that &...

AspergerStudy, I hope you will tell us (perhaps in this thread?) when your study is over and what you found (either with a summary here or steer us to it on https://arielcascio.wordpress.com/archives/).

I think people are imprecise because they assume you will know what they meant...even though their phrasing is so vague you know it could mean a lot of different things.

The psychologist who did my Adult Autism Assessment did not take insurance, either. But after I paid her bill I submitted it to my insurance and they sent me a check for part of the bill.

Everything Everywhere All at Once (2022) I saw this film at the theater, and I thought it was too long at the time, but I enjoyed it. Watching it again on DVD, and the length does not seem that long, and I still enjoyed it. I can understand where it may not be for everyone. Is this a film that appe...

Do you want to know? Absolutely, why wouldn't I want to know? I want to understand myself. It would provide context for my struggles. Perhaps you just answered the question of whether or not you should get a formal assessment. P.S. The diagnosis process was kind of fun! I enjoyed it! It was "f...

I can't say I'm partial to doing anything special for the birthdays that are multiples of ten. They're just birthdays like all the others and make me a year older. For my most recent birthday my bride cooked a meal she knew I would like and consider to be special. But she likes to cook. I would've a...

It sounds like you got an informed opinion from your therapist...not a formal diagnosis. There is a standardized testing process for making a formal diagnosis. It should be administered by a psychologist who works with Autism and with patients your age...and, ideally, who fits into your insurance co...
