Was on luvox for awhile but I find that more "natural" treatments help without weird side-effects. the omega 3-6-9 capsuls plus ginko biloba work as far as attention and having a more stable mood. For me its mostly about working with my depression and inattention.

very creative indeed. There should be special places like that for aspies who are of age that would want to be more independent and be surrounded by people who understand. What I want to know is what bounderies would be set and issues of safety implemented?

It's kind of a no- brainer there; in order to work with other people you have good relational skills so you can get along with co-workers and the boss. I read an article in working world magazine and it said being able to compromise, communicate ideas or concerns with a boss or co-worker was importa...

I dont do well on stimulants even though i was able to concentrate better I became more agressive and irritable like a drug addict on the adderall and felt sick the first week on it. I dont like coffe or any caffine but i love hot chocolate.

I have her books and love her perspective on how animals act since i'm closely connected to them and yes she does make the cows life a bit better because she understands their behavior so that when their end does come they wont be as traumatized.

I know how it is, mines chronic and ive already tried medication which did help but I think that it's somehow wrong to deny my true feelings so I dont take it anymore. Exercise does give me a boost and sometimes I do go to bed sad, tense and alone.

No, because I won't be happy having to start a new life as a new person, theres no way for me to be a kid again and start all those important milestones as a normal person with a clear-thinking brain.

The whole anti-disabilities sentiment seems to keep growing among parents and I wish people would would see that having this condition makes us more special aside from the general population.

Back in june I believe another mom smothered her 6 month old several time till he was dead just because she suspected he was deeply autistic.
