There is apparently some link between a non-celiac gluten issue, schizophrenia and autism. This may be why the two get mixed up in diagnosis? I read several articles about it the other day. Have any of you tried a gluten free diet (in a serious way) to see if it helped? I like history and I remember...

Keep him writing every day...maybe a journal on an interest, if he has one? The speed should pick up with continued practice.

Well I did not make a cake yet, but I did make some gluten free bread this evening. It was an experiment to see if I could make something more palatable than store-bought from my usual wheat bread recipe? (puts some out to share) It's still kinda dense but it's more like a normal whole grain bread. ...

Hi Omid, I see at the bottom of your post that you were previously diagnosed by an autism specialist, but then after he left other docs diagnosed you schizophrenic, but without a thinking disorder...no delusions, no hallucinations? Is that right? We have been reading and discussing schizoaffective (...

Wow that was a tough day Spider, and yes we can be too trusting. I'm glad you made it through and learned a thing or two. Me too lately. Mostly when I cry I just get tear up and stop. Once in awhile I'll really have a real cry, only around safe people or when nobody else is around. Not that I cried ...

I am/was trainer and I should re-up my licensing. I let it go for awhile. I agree with Kaelynn, on most things. I've always been told to train for 3 tasks to help with. A good one is if you take medications, for the dog to alert to a timer. I have both of mine trained to eat when the timer goes off,...

I was sent a box of pictures from my childhood (and my sister's) and when I went to add photos and some old stuff to forward with them to my sister, I found my old wooden yoyo. :) I thought it was long gone.

I have grown into the opinion lately that everybody lies sometimes whether they realize it or not (even if not good at it), and everybody can keep secrets...some better than others. I tend to lie and keep secrets "for the right reasons"...to keep a surprise party a surprise, to keep medical info pri...

I don't have an inability to interact with peers, but I do generally have a lack of desire (but not 100% of the time, because well...now I'm 40 and I've learned to appreciate the value of peer relationships), and a lack of appreciation of social cues (but again not 100% of the time...largely because...

Thanks for that extra note about the narcissism, Muntanmion. I didn't realize that narcissism and sociopathy could intertwine but it makes perfect sense. Your google search phrase did a good job. ;) I got concise information on both subjects that way and I'll be reading more. I found my coping mecha...

Is anybody interested in advice from a calligrapher on the spectrum? I have taught it to kids and adults for years and have a little bit of a system going.
You can reply via PM too.

I take meds that slow me down just a little bit, but they don't make me into a zombie. For me, getting zombified (or going hypomanic) was a sign I might be getting slightly overdosed on meds. It might be a normal dose for somebody not on the Spectrum but maybe not for me...that was a great warning f...

Muntanmion, I like your icon...but what is the black figurine? It reminds me of a dog I had once, she wasn't black but she inspired people to keep their distance. The distinction given from the "Snakes in Suits" book is probably the best working definition I've seen yet, and I think I have been need...
