Taking leave might be the way to go, if there's a chance you could get the worst of it out of your system. And if it's still a problem when you come back to work, then yes, removing access to the internet might be an idea. The only other thing I can think of is, if there's a job needs doing at work ...

More exercise would almost certainly help.
If you can't go out much, is there something you can do at home, such as hand weights or a cycle machine?

Have you done any other autism tests such as the AQ and the systemising/emotional index tests?
You can find them online, and more test results would give a clearer indication.

Hey Magz, don't worry about the rocking, just take a rest and recharge, and go easy on yourself.
It's not easy coping with work and family, people can understand that, even if they don't get the autism.
Hope things get better for you soon :heart:

That's a good point.
I went private for mine, but it did not cost a lot in the end because it only took 2 sessions with the psychologist. Just a few hundred Aussie dollars.
There seems to be a lot of variation in how long it can take and how much it costs.

I think it happens, but I have no idea to what extent. I just know that I've seen reports of autistic youth offenders whose traits seem much more aligned to a personality disorder than to ASD, making me think they may have been wrongly diagnosed. This is so bad for autistics in general, because it b...

It might be worth asking her again why she was angry - because it may be that she's resentful about something and these things tend to get worse if not brought out into the open. Try and find a time when she's calm and ask if there's been anything bothering her.

I didn't know I had ASD growing up, I just wanted to be 'normal'. I spent my twenties being as absolutely 'normal' as I could be, I got married (in a church - what was I thinking?), I got pregnant (twice - ditto). With no mothering instinct whatsoever, I just assumed I'd learn as I went along, becau...

I also feel that my parents would scoff at the idea as I am very functional, hold down a job etc and they may have quite a narrow view of what it means to be on the autism spectrum. This makes me wonder if I would even bother to tell anybody, even if I did get diagnosed. :/ One good thing about a d...

Well, I got diagnosed about 6 months ago, but I'm not sure what kind of advice to give you. At the time, I really wanted the diagnosis, just to be certain it really was ASD and not feel that I was deluding myself, or others. In that sense, it was a good thing. The post-diagnosis period was not comfo...

That's rough. Even though I've only gone from one cup a day to none, I'm really craving it, so it's clearly pretty addictive stuff.
Have you tried drinking tea? Luckily I really like tea, so that gives me something else to reach for when I'm getting a craving.

Many people find they are getting more autistic after diagnosis and also experience depression and anxiety. At first it's happiness: "I finally know why I struggled my whole life and I can develop proper strategies and get some treatment to make my life better". But after 1-2 years anothe...

Hey, it's good that machine is trying to help her, its shows he cares.

I think you need to catch her at the right moment, like next time you meet her, try and extend it by asking her to come with you for a walk, or a coffee, or whatever. That way, she doesn't have time to chicken out.

Potatoes are a great food. I'm not gluten intolerant myself, but I think they must be a fantastic staple for those who are.

I've also had to cut out coffee, but that's a topic of another thread. Could you start a coffee thread? That is the one thing I have no self control over no matter how hard I try to cut it out. Would love to hear your experiences on my coffee thread:
