I was having a lot of confusion & memory issues. It's complicated, but I now believe stress is a big part of it. I now avoid idiots & hostile people as much as I can. Divorce & becoming a recluse cured a bunch of that.

The neurologist I went to in 2008 called it a "garbage pail diagnosis." And later that year, the supposed "expert" psychiatrist in autism spectrum (probably mostly for children) didn't want to talk at all. Just gave me a bunch of tests that made no sense. Like a facial recognitio...

What's the difference between consumer facing and customer facing?

It depends on what you need. Do you need the diagnosis to be eligible for some service or other practical benefit?
Or just for your own comfort? Either way, I would think that piece of paper from the local doc is good enough,
and cheaper. What can the guy in Thailand do for you beyond that?

Some wise man once said, "When your only tool is a hammer, every problem looks like a nail." You are right that she is not competent in your case. Whether she is technically "qualified" doesn't really matter. She doesn't know and doesn't want to know anything that would be helpfu...

Sounds like a good plan, except that you'd probably be stuck there.
I always picture the west coast as warmer. More habitable.

You guys have my sympathy.
I can relate to the compassion and guilt. I get that too.
Still, you need to take care of yourselves and your family.
You don’t owe onyone anything.

1. Do no harm. 2. Make the world better in whatever way you can, even if it's only in a small way or for a single person. There's always someone who needs the kind of help that you can give. (Focusing only on your own needs is the fast track to depression & misery.) 3. Tell the truth as much and...

1850 and 1900 are pretty distant. If you look at old photos, they are usually looking away.
Anyway, the point is that I don't believe it's natural at all.
And it is considered aggressive or disrespectful in many cultures.

I'd rather see some research into why the "normal" people in western culture insist on looking into each other's eyes. I'm sure it has something to do with aggression. Also, why do modern people look right into the camera? They didn't in the distant past. They always looked away. I don't b...

Let me know if you really go. I'm sometimes tempted by political events in that area.
A meet-up would be a double incentive, especially in the summer.
I'm about an hour by train from Penn Station. (The cost of a ticket is the hardest part.)

What Riik said.
and what Outrider said.
and everybody else.
Like a splinter in my mind.
But yes, I can relate to the feeling of being on the wrong planet.
Still waiting for the mother ship to return.
