I am wrestling with that also. The other day I read my elementary school report cards from the second half of 1960s. They were quite consistent over the years. Above average in math and science, below average in communication and social skills. Well organized, punctual, very stubborn, with an aversi...

Sounds similar to ANTS (Automatic Negative Thoughts) in the book "Change your brain, Change your life" by Dr Daniel Amen. He gave talks on PBS for years during the pledge drives.

There are many of us who do not fit in the neurotypical world and have many issues found in the neurodiverse world. I would suggest that you read articles about adult autism and see where you fit. Take a few tests, but be careful with confirmation bias. Read the posting on WP and see how you relate....

The are a few trick you need to learn to keep everything simple. First, you are cooking for yourself. If it turns out poorly, so what eat it anyhow. Get yourself a steamer insert. Chop up some veggies, broccoli, cabbage, string beans, cauliflower .... and steam them for 10 to 12 minutes. You can add...

Money is worth nothing if we end up in a climate disaster, especially if it goes as far as getting very difficult to undo what's been done... (yes this sounds catastrophising but it is an actual poasibility Ugh, this reminds of when I was a 4th year Economics student. I could not get anyone (studen...

Listening to and watching Greta makes me proud. She is intelligent and brave. Yes, her black and white thinking may be a bit strong. Her facial expressions may be a bit off. But, I believe there is a special place in hell for all those who mock and bully someone because they are different. I think ...

Does problem solving require more abstract thinking? I am pretty good at applying knowledge to solve problems.

We all make the mistake of idolizing the lives of others. You would be surprised by the amount of time and effort people put in on Facebook to make their lives look amazing. There will always be people who are better and they should be appreciated for what they have done and not envied for what we h...

I use CBD oil a few times a week, 10mg dose. The CBD oil at 10mg tends to lighten my mood. I also take kratom, low dose, 1 or 2 times a week. They work well together. Cannabis would be nice, but I do not like supporting the criminal networks associated with purchasing it on the black market. Growing...

Seek success, not fame. Yes, Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal are well-known, but they are also the most successful men in their field. Denis Istomin's name isn't as well-known as that of many other tennis players but he, too, has been successful in life. He has overcome great odds to succeed in tenn...

I like the article. I've lived in two countries, Wales and England. I've stayed for a week in Scotland and had a few other short holidays there. I had one little holiday in Ireland. Have also been on holiday to America, Canada and France. I've often thought what holds back human beings is an overva...
