Hello, I did finally manage to find one psychologist that does do adult autism diagnosis. I however realized at least with this particular person that it will not be possible for me to do so due to the number of sessions she requires and the cost out of pocket to pay. I added up the cost (she sent a...

Giving up on a patient. I had this happen to me at one of my lowest, and the therapist said she couldn't help me anymore. That did not help at all. [quote="dear_one] Well, it is better than treating you badly. A professional should at least try to suggest a better source of help, though.[/quot...

I used to when I was a teenager. My parents would often compare me to a small child and even say I was like a baby. Sometimes I used to blurt out stupid questions for no particular reason, a question a child might ask. Like when I was about 14 I once asked my mum, "where's teddy?" My mum ...

I do wonder about the living on mars, it is beyond inhospitable and the amount of work to keep humans just alive seems to be next to impossible and very costly. Also i don't really get the appeal of no trees or animals or blue sky. And you think YOU'RE strange? :-) Heh yeah :lol: Well, I do admire ...

Musk has spoken about how what he does hurts him. About how unhealthy and not normal it is to be so driven. But he feels he has to do it. And he certainly has changed the whole landscape of the electric car. He has also changed rocketry forever and is about to do it again in a big way. I'm an arden...

Yes it can be a rough transition sometimes, but you do eventually tend to adjust. It can feel overwhelming for the first while, you just have to kind of ride it out. Eventually the tasks will become more automatic to your brain and it gets easier. Dealing with people can be difficult, but just try t...

Elon Musk ran a contest for innovation in transportation. He changed the rules after people had already started. The entries that might have hurt his business got no recognition, except perhaps some headhunting to hobble them. The winners were non-starters in customer appeal. The cars he makes are ...

I don't know who Elon Musk is so I can't speak to that. Oh, he's just some moderately notable billionaire recluse building a rocket factory and launch site at an undisclosed location on the Texas coast. Somehow got it in his head that worldwide internet can be provided by a bunch of satellites; pro...

Stress isn't a core feature, per se. The diagnostic criteria says we aren't good with change of routines, and we have sensory processing issues. Stress happens when we have to deal with changes to our routine and when we're bombarded by sensory input (or, in some cases, not enough sensory stimulati...

Another thought on this, do some with autism handle stress real well? ... Maybe not every autistic person is bad at handling it? This is kind of a sideways answer to that: several years ago I had a surgeon who pretty much right away at our first pre-surgery meeting recognized that I was on the spec...

Fireworks, lawn mowers, trains, buses, birds, rain and thunder, and other noises I can't think of right now, don't bother me at all. In fact when the landlords were mowing the lawn outside my bedroom window I found it so relaxing that I fell asleep to it! But kids, distant music, footsteps in the a...

Wow. You live in a busy place! Where do you go to have quiet times? Heh, well actually its better than the last place I lived, that was worse. Usually here where I am currently at it is much more quiet except for the trains, but they are predictable so when they get close I know to plug my ears for...

Maybe not every autistic person is bad at handling it? Is ...
