i agree that we tend to look younger but i don't think it's genetic. it probably has more to do with grooming and fashion choices. young women tend to look younger when they're not wearing makeup and don't have their hair styled, and adult men often look like teenagers if they don't work out, have c...

i'm going to university for medical laboratory technology this fall. i chose this major instead of regular biology/biomedical science because the employment prospects are much better. the course is very practical with a lot of focus on labs. many of the labs are timed. we are also expected to learn ...

admittedly i only skimmed the OP and the rest of this thread, but OP's writing sounds a lot like what might be produced by someone in a manic state. maybe a cure for autism isn't what you need.

I don't think this is a cause for worry. As many others have pointed out these syndromes are very rare; more to the point, the physical abnormalities and mental disabilities associated with these diseases tend to be incredibly severe. The article you linked doesn't do a great job of pointing this ou...

OP, have you ever been evaluated for Ehlers-Danlos or Marfan syndrome? It's quite unusual for someone your age to have such extensive joint/spine issues.

I get joint pain from time to time, but nothing severe.

i've done a lot of research on chromosomal microaberrations & their relation to ASDs... if you look deeper into this subject you will find that the vast majority of these disorders cause autism, and that's simply because the vast majority of these disorders cause brain damage, and brain damage (...

Depression can be made worse by anti-depressants. Do you realize labels can be locks... because of antidepressants i was able to stop self-harming. if i had not stopped i would probably have died, or at least become severely ill from chronic blood loss/inevitable infection. i would greatly apprecia...

i am trash, absolute trash. my life is a joke and my face is the punchline. i am a lumbering lump of fat, hobbling along like a toddler while the others gawk at me, bumping into everything, knocking things down, falling flat on my own face. i am subhuman, some hack artist's terrible attempt at makin...

i don't find my pain difficult to describe on a scale. i can easily say that my pain is a 4 or 5. but i've learned that what i call a 4 or 5 other people might call an 8 or a 9. when i broke my collarbone in a car accident i wasn't going to bother going to the ER as i figured i'd just bruised it. i ...

"a manufacturer-funded study"... makes me immediately suspicious. however if the results are as they claim this could be a wonderful breakthrough for the treatment of ASD. i would assume, however, that it wouldn't be a panacea... it would be beneficial for those whose autism results from, or is due ...

there's nothing logical or reasonable about what you posted. you posted "i think women are dumb because the women i have met are dumb." i could just as easily post "i think women are smart because the women i have met are smart" and it would be just as valid an argument as yours (since your argument...

consider interacting with "females" in real life, instead of on call of duty

and don't try to create controversy by preemptively defending yourself, that's tacky

marfan syndrome is a disorder of connective tissue -- it doesn't have any effect on the brain... i do know a few people with it and i have to agree with riverotter that they seem more "aspie-like" than most, but i'd assume that's just a consequence of the low self-esteem & social isolation that ...
