Filling out forms is one of my favorite tasks. Then again, the love of completing forms helped immensely when applying for services, education and medical treatment for my children. Go figure. 8) Oh, and I held a job in the copy center at Staples and was a paralegal before starting a family. I was u...

I took an anatomy class in college and knew a lot of the American pronounciations. Everything was fine until the professor spoke and I heard his British tongue. Nothing against Brits, mind you. My expectation of the "correct" way to say body parts was shattered. :roll:

Once I saw my life through the lens of AS, everything made sense. Once I was able to accept this explanation, I was able to accept myself for the first time in 30 years. It was freeing. Do I want a cure? No. I could do without the bad side of NT existence, especially the kind that involves mind game...

Maybe sit down and share with each other what sets both of you off? There is a possibility she doesn't know which buttons she is pressing.

Before discovering the explanation that ASD offers, I've always considered myself as "lacking the common sense gene".

Another positive angle on the proposed changes to the DSM is that an ASD diagnosis is inclusive of biological co-morbidity: GI problems, allergies, etc. It's refreshing to know that the psych community will no longer treat autism as being "all in the head".

I have often felt like you, yet I am older and hopefully wiser for my experience. I pretty much didn't even want to learn to cook until my children and I went on a special allergy free diet this year and I had to go and learn things all new along side my children as we did a sort of home ec course ...

My sons both have asthma, but also have severe egg allergy therefore they can't get the shot. My husband and I will be getting both shots. My kiddos are in the same egg allergy boat as yours. My son also has severe reactions to gelatin, which is in a lot of vaccines. The Tamiflu suspension seems to...

Nebula, my heart goes out to you. I have an uncle who was falsely accused of the same thing and it affected him greatly. This was upwards of over 10 years ago and I'm not sure how much he has really bounced back from it. The thing is, I knew in my heart he did not do it. And, you are not being paran...

Food allergy; overproduction of stomach acid; poor/incomplete digestion of foods; yeast infection might even be worth exploring. M. Same here. My son had it for a good few years before we figured out all that was going on. If you know what might be causing it, try pulling it and reintroducing it sl...

Perfect timing! Life has come full-circle as we just got back from the first school birthday party my son (age 6) was invited to. He was the only boy there, so no trains or other toys he is interested in. He stuck to watching an hour or so of Spongebob. Some of the younger men there would talk with ...
