You make a good point, OP. For example, patients with anorexia nervosa who are 'noncompliant' in some treatment centres will be sent home. The thing is, 'noncompliance' is to be expected with that illness. http://ed-bites.blogspot.co.uk/2012/03/myth-of-non-compliant-patient.html

You have two things kind of going on here, so I'll touch on both. Some professors are pricks, yes; however, some REALLY do just want to help you better yourself. That is what university is all about. If people have no room for improvement, they have no need for university. An example that recently ...

Thankfully, living in the UK, I shouldn't have to pay. Really?? In Canada we don't usually have to pay for health care, but for this kind of test, I had to pay 1200$ directly out-of-pocket at the time of the appointment. There's an Aspergers clinic in my city. You have to get a referral from your c...

Why object to the gender binary but reinforce it by asking people to put themselves into male or female boxes anyway? Why not simply ask whether people are masculine, feminine, both, neither, and other?


Isn't the categorization of 'masculinity' and 'femininity' part of the gender binary? :P

Seeing no difference between male and female is either the radical, well-intended but wrong (imo) political ideology of a NT or in AS, socially stifling. I don't find it the least bit stifling to not be assigned a list of socially pre-approved opinions, gestures, interests, and fashion based on not...

People definitely sometimes put on makeup without intending to leave the house, for themselves.

? If so, I would like to invite you to consider participating in an anonymous study that examines factors that may be related to anorexia nervosa severity. I hope that the results of this study will help treatment providers better identify early warning signs of anorexia nervosa and create more tail...

I don't know what is the difference between considering someone as a man or a woman. It all feels the same to me. For the easily offended, I know this is full of stereotypes, because I'm explaining how a typical person would view gender. If you consider someone a man, you refer to him by male gende...

...there is that pesky payment issue. Some places will use a sliding scale for charging. I guess it depends on were you go for the testing. I was asking about you. Thankfully, living in the UK, I shouldn't have to pay. But you think it's worth getting a diagnosis? To tell the truth, I'm having issu...

I do hope you will muster the courage for a formal evaluation. I get a sense that the not-knowing is weighing on you. You are certainly correct about all the cross-contamination of symptoms with giftedness and such. For years I thought my son had really bad ADHD and an IQ in the severely gifted cat...

Make-up intention is to make you look younger. Smooth skin, fuller lips, bigger eyes, flush on your cheeks. Youth. And you know men are attracted to youth. But it's fake. Once the men see the woman without makeup on, they will get a nasty shock and might not like her any more after all. What's the ...
