Can Aspergers make you mentally insane? I mean when things get tooooo much, you really don’t know how to handle it & you become sooo overwhelmed that it makes you feel sooo scared, feel like the end of the world, you really act like a child & you have a little hard time breathing. I know As...

Something, that may be of interest. ASD is supposedly represented higher in prison population,* than outside in civilian setting. * Autism is underdiagnosed in prisoners Many prisons in the UK have significant psychology departments partly due to the volume of criminals with antisocial personality ...

Go and meet a couple hundred people who have bpd. You’ll probably find that most of them if not all (when tested by unbiased person) have autism. I may be wrong but just for a second consider that bpd is the end result of unmet needs of Autistics. But bpd is 100% curable and can be diagnosed in abo...

That's a good point. I also believe that narcissistic traits are inherent in human populations for good reason. Autistic traits also, though the reasons are different. It's all about nature maintaining a balance. I wonder how many autistic youtubers would score high in a narcissistic personality di...

What if any overlap in symptoms are there between BPD and autism? Is it possible to be misdiagnosed as having BPD when it may be autism or are the commonalities between these two disorders lies in the fact that they can be co-morbid? I was diagnosed with BPD last year, but have felt for years that ...

Questioning the accuracy of the diagnostic criteria for Pedophilic Disorder. If puberty starts at between ages 10 and 14 in girls, and 12 and 16 for boys, why is the diagnostic criteria for Pedophilic Disorder is sexual attraction for older adolescents is ages 13 and under? Shouldn't diagnostic cri...

I think that autistic people vary a huge amount, also non-autistic people vary a huge amount. I tend to think of it that there a whole lot of twisty knobs, Does this sound convincing? Of course, in reality, it is probably differences in our genes, and in our early environments, that determine compl...

Doom II, Unloved , a GZDoom wad. God, this is tough on UV, and I'm having to save quite a bit, but it's very atmospheric, innovative and visually appealing. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PHDKlZJSHDk Don't think this guy is playing on UV! Hi I tried to watch the video but cant stand YT on-screen h...

My favourite autistic YT channel is The Big Lez Show. Makes me laugh and it doesn't involve attention seeking humans.

One dictionary definition of the word 'neurotypical' is not having, or not associated with, a brain condition, especially autism, that is often considered as different from what is usual . To be diagnosed with ASD or any other mental health condition we must first satisfy a minimum level of behaviou...

Interesting stuff. From what I have read, adults with suspected autism are more likely to pursue a diagnosis compared to those with suspected antisocial personality disorders. I think overall, autism in the UK is generally accepted by society (though I do question this sometimes), however those with...

Just bought Elden Ring from CEX in UK, I fancy doing an archer build for my first character. I started the soulsborne thing with Bloodborne a few years ago which was awesome, then played back through the DarkSouls games. I loved how the first boss in BB was Farther Gascoine! He was so difficult to b...

Hi iZ Egoni Thanks for taking the time to explain what you are going through, you are a very brave person. I have read a few books on borderline personality and most of them are terrible, vilifying the person with BPD and offering advice such as 'how to survive your borderline partner'. Recently I r...

Hi PenPen

Nice to meet you. I think you will do just fine. I like Ghost in the Shell movie and Knights of Sidonia anime. My interest in anime came about in the 90's Golgo 13, Vampire Hunter D etc. What have you been watching lately?

Hi Crystal1414 I find structure helps. Maybe summarise your autism traits into a few short bite sized terms, just a few main ones and do the same with sz and write them down. Of course a persons autism or sz is typically way more complex than a few overall traits, however, beginning with simple term...

Can't see too much in the DSM5 BPD criteria that matches up with ASD criteria, even a lack of empathy. Borderlines are said to have little or no affective empathy and a significant amount of cognitive empathy. Autist people are said to have significant affective empathy and little or no cognitive em...
