I don't think I would have gotten through university if I couldn't speed read. I'd remember the information for however long I needed it for, but forget it afterwards. This was probably because the majority of what I read were very dry journal articles. A lot of them. My love for fiction has been a ...

I had a coworker once who had urticaria. Wouldn't wish it on anyone.

And thankfully I've never had a cold sore.

My most recent malady has been reflux. I was prescribed esomeprazole and the problem is gone. Just have to remember to take the tablet every second day. I don't need it every day.

I got into trouble fairly often as a kid because I didn't understand how to tell white lies. Especially to people outside of the family. I would tell them the whole truth and my parents would be mortified and tell me off good and proper when they had me alone.

I admit, I'm a culprit because I bang close my car doors. It's an old car so a lot of the time the doors don't shut properly. I park my car in an echoing carport so when I slam my doors it must piss off the neighbour, a man in his 50s. He doesn't own a car but has visitors who park next to my car. I...

Like Ivpin, I use my phone to remind me of things. It's just Google Calendar, so no apps I had to pay for. I'm in the habit of looking at it morning and night just to see what's coming up. The most important thing to do, though, is input events in the first place. There's no point if that's not done...

ECT is usually a temporary measure to get someone out of suicidal depression while waiting for antidepressants or other medication to work. At least that's how it was for me. Or you could get what they call "maintenance ECT" where you have a treatment once a month or so. I'm not familiar w...

Mine's a physical one - I have prothrombin gene mutation. It means that if I hurt myself by way of a cut, I'll hardly bleed. Unfortunately giving blood is out of the question, it hardly comes out. Blood tests take ages to do. Before I knew I had this I always wondered why people bled so much when th...

I have applied online for a casual job with the Salvos, with both a cover letter and a resumé. But they picked someone else. Fireblossom, sounds like you do plenty especially if you're working as well. I'm really glad to be at the Salvos, the boss compliments my work and the other volunteers are fun...

^I'm sorry to hear that. @CockneyRebel, I never knew such a volunteering job like that existed. I have heard of volunteers making blankets and clothes for newborns though. @jordanalmokdad, that field job sounds massive, what a shame someone had to come and wreck your work. Your job now sounds unique...

My mum used to say that bored people are boring. Probably because her stepdaughter used to say she was bored a lot when she was at our place and it would drive mum up the wall. Personally, I find that I rarely get bored. If there's a good book to read or a forum to come to and read then it's difficu...

My flatmate (also known as GalileoAce) is autistic and trans. I've known her before and all throughout her transition. I feel lucky to know her.

After trying to find work for years, both by myself and with a disability employment agency, I decided to fill some time volunteering. I went to my local second hand shop and asked if they needed volunteers. They gave me a card with a website address to go to for volunteers. I filled in the online f...

I've wanted to try aripiprazole for a long time. But it's really expensive here.

I'm the same and have known since I was about 8 or 9.

I missed out on the chance of a lifetime to spend my life with a man who loved me. All I could do was say no to him. He moved on and now has a family of his own.

So there are drawbacks to being asexual.

Loved the show Fringe. Walter's son would sometimes get exasperated with him when he did things out of the ordinary.
