I say this as someone who has been a member for just 18 months or so, so I am conscious there will be those who have been around for much longer. It's just that I have got a lot out of the helpful advice and simply reading posts over the last 15 months. But roughly around the time the site changed ...

I never knew autism alert bracelets or cards existed. I'm not sure I'd use one, but I sure need a Medic Alert Encyclopedia for all my medical conditions in an emergency where I might not be able to respond. ;)

I think this is an excellent idea! I've been looking for something like this--at least in Canada. Even if it's the UK, it's still something I've been searching for. If I knew more about business, I'd love to help.

I grew up in a terrible, high crime, working class environment and I'll never go back. Now I live in a sleepy small town and love it, except that everything closes by 6pm.

If you're getting akathesia, you need to get off whatever medication is causing it as safely and quickly as possible. I had it, and yes, it's absolute torture.

There shouldn't be any negative connotation to being disabled, but there is. As a result I wish I didn't have to identify as disabled, but I have physical disabilities as well as ASD/ADHD/etc, and grew up with the label. Hated it and only gaining self-acceptance now.

I was born premature and there were several complications. I was in the hospital over a month after I was born. Same, except I was in the hospital for a longer time. I have birth-related complications as a result of being born so early. I suspect my ASD/AS is a result of my premature birth; the syn...

You may not like it now, DevilKisses, but you'll like looking young for your age when you get older.

I'm in my 30s and was mistaken for a minor two days in a row.

@SteelMaiden - I sympathize and empathize with you. Though I am not schizophrenic I suffer from various different medical conditions (some of which I share with you) including ASD that impact my daily life and prevent me from living independently. ASD, ADHD, visual impairment/legal blindness, cerebr...

Everyone who lives on a farm is a child laborer to some extent. True, but the term "child labor" itself has rather negative connotations involving the exploitation of the children. I would hardly use the term "exploitation" in reference to working as a kid on the family farm. My...

I was on Lorazepam, one of those addictive meds. I'd say it helped more than other medications they have tried to give me in the past, but I suppose anything is better than an anti-depressant. Definitely something you wouldn't wanna take everyday, I was real careful with that. When I did take it I ...
