The most common reply that you are going to receive to such a question is that "Only a trained psychologist/psychiatrists can diagnose one with an autistic spectrum disorder." There is a bit of truth in this, as the professionals have studied the diagnostic criteria much longer than have many of the...

I have adored singing ever since I was old enough to produce such sounds with my vocal chords. I had my own little karaoke machine at one point, though I sure managed to find the motivation to sing without it, too. As a child, I was absolutely convinced that I was going to be the next big country mu...

I have a tendency to do this whenever I am stressed, overwhelmed, bored, or listening to music, but I rock very subtly when I am in public to the point that nobody seems to notice. It is, in fact, very relaxing. :)

I have a hypothesis that many people with an autistic spectrum disorder (or any other neurological or psychological state that is conducive to social awkwardness, for that matter) seldom, if ever, really feel as though they are "in place" with others. People often speak of those who relate well to e...

*offers virtual hug* You have every right to dislike your circumstances; life has its cruelties about it, and one cannot be faulted for noticing and being affected by such. Rejection and depression are two of the deepest-cutting cruelties of all, and it is not at all unusual that you feel so hopeles...

This novel does seem fairly interesting. I do not normally like romance novels, but I'm willing to make an exception for this one.

Meltdowns and tantrums are not the same at all. They are very different. We have to be careful not to confuse the two. The motives and causes are very very different. You want to be careful calling a meltdown a glorified tantrum because people who are not knowledgeable who don't know the difference...

I have been tormented by an adult alcoholic for years, to the point of multiple suicidal attempts, and instead of our landlord/stepfather doing as he promised that if he does one more thing to us he'll throw him out, but when that happened, he said "you don't throw out a sick person"! :eew: Meanwhi...
