I just did a genetic cheek swab. Trying to get SOME idea about my meds, my mental health, what meds might (yes might - not a sure thing just a statistical maybe, but information just the same) work or not work for me and my personal chemical soup. Having lots of mood and executive function challenge...

I am an introvert. Covid forced to be even more introverted than was healthy or balanced for me. I have been going for walks around the block. Sometimes when it is raining I will do stairs. I will start at the bottom of the flight of stairs and go up one stair, then down one. Then up two then down t...

One thing I find helps is to tell myself:
"Play the cards you are dealt. There will be another hand of cards. Just play this hand."

When I was a kid, I used to climb to the top of the tree in front of my house.

I am sorry you feel confused. I have been experiencing this a lot lately. It may be like what is called "analysis paralysis". The opposite problem is "ready, fire, aim". Somewhere between the two is where I want to be, but "analysis paralysis" is someplace I often find ...

I wonder what I brain scan of my brain would show. I have never had one. But I have had several diagnosis or "experts" telling me that I have "this" or "that" and so my brain is different. I am afraid that "natural aging" will further diminish my EF (executive...

TL;DR EpicWin, Apple Calendar, Apple Clock, Google Calendar and Siri I have tried a lot of things to try to help my time management, calendars etc. Nothing much has helped - my feeling is that people with good EF are also good at using calendars and journals and such. I often use the “email my wife ...

Welcome to Wrongplanet - I hope it is right for you. To read about Autism I would start with google scholar. Wikipedia and Encyclopedia Brittanica online could be helpful too. Once you have read those feel free to ask any questions you have here. (Actually you can ask questions even before you read ...

I wonder if you make better “eye contact” when you wear glasses. In some cultures this would be perceived as a greeting or invitation to conversation. I once had a problem with a high fever causing me to go crosseyed. For months after I had to work very hard to keep my eyes focused and make out face...

I often get my left and right mixed up. Consequently, as an American, I got into the habit of looking left,right,left,right before crossing the street. When I visited England I just did the same thing - no real difference for me. For safety I might think about “cross at the green, and not in between...
