 Forum: General Autism Discussion   Topic: 12 Steps Recovery and being in the Spectrum

I would be very interested to hear from others in the spectrum who work a recovery program. From Alcoholics Annomous to Sex and Love addiction, whatever.

I know some of us in the spectrum find the formality of engagement in 12 Step meetings a very helpful way of interacting and connecting.

In hindsight the triggers are usually quite easily delineated however if it is a sensory trigger the symptoms subside pretty quickly after the fact (e.g. moving somewhere quiet) however if it is an emotion...

Oh, should have said. I am much more interested to hear your experiences and not so much your opinions or theories.

I would be interested to hear from people in the spectrum on their experiences of how emotions and sensory input relate to each other, and thus cause overwhelm and meltdown. For example, do you find that the one affects the other? This is my experience. I find it almost impossible to separate the tw...

For a community - if that is the right choice of word, who prides itself on difference, we have a long way to go in accepting 'difference' in the truest meaning of the word. The OP's arrogance is not too far away from the mindset that was so prevalent here some years back. Many who have been unkindl...

So much so that it can be equally challenging - if not more - for even others in the spectrum to understand. Most aspies I know are of the...

Thank you both. I have always seen the contemplative paths of all the great religious teachings, as heading in the same direction as science. Merely approaching truth from simply different sides of the mountain - so to speak. I care very little for what such ultimate truth is wrapped up in Dear One....

Thank you for responding.

If you're ever in London, do pop into Westminster meeting, it would be good to see you.

Go well out there.

Chris.
