Wouldn’t that pretty much be true for everything — good, bad, and in-between! :nemo:

Tried plenty of anxiety meds, none have really helped too much. Please stay alive. :jester: I understand that with any medication affecting the brain’s neurotransmitters that it’s trial-and-error in a respectful sense. And not all doctors have the patience for this, frankly and/or their particular ...

Many mental health professionals will basically assign you tasks, much of it generally good ideas, but tasks none the less. One idea, can you half-as$ a lot of these? ! ? :jester: And in many cases, the answer to that is, yes. Like in art, less is often more. And then, can you maybe add free positiv...

Autism Appreciation, perhaps? :jester: First we make the point that a number of famous people were or probably were on the spectrum (being careful not to out living persons), and then secondly making the point, hey, most of us aren’t famous, and a person shouldn’t have to be famous to be accorded th...

I think you’ve done a pretty good job laying out some of the issues. And please feel free to use us as one more good resource at times of your choosing.

. . . I thought I downloaded child pornography, but then I heard one police officer explaining to my parents that I did not do anything wrong and nor there was conclusive evidence that I had the right motivation to harm children ( although I am sexually attracted to children). I feel confused, beca...

. . . I still have violent thoughts. But I don't pay them any attention, and let them float away as though they never existed. I am far less volatile now. . . This is very good advice. I think this is similar to the zen buddhist approach. You don’t give a thought extra power by either trying to hol...

The story is extremely upsetting. RIP to that student, and condolences to his family. I choked on a fat, crescent-shaped slice of celery when I was about 17. I was in a restaurant. At first I thought I was OK although I could barely breathe. I was embarrassed to make a scene so I made my way to the...

Thanks for posting the how to do the Heimlich manuver, though is pointless to point out to teachers and student aides. All school employees have to hold current CPR and first aid training to work. I was first certified by my home ec teacher who was the school's instructor. It sounds like you got a ...

“You can see the attendant with his back to Kedar. Kedar gets up and walks to the window. He sits on the floor. Then, he sits down at the table. He starts eating, and then he starts choking. He falls out of the chair to the floor,” Baker-Barnes explained. So, it sounds like it wasn’t just momentari...

I have heard about this toe walking issue with us in the spectrum, but nobody has explained why many of us in the spectrum do this? I would be very grateful if someone here could enlighten me. Many thanks, Chris. I think we sometimes do it to reduce how much sensory overload we get, such as a cold ...

I have toe walked my entire life. I'm only 20 and so far I don't think it has messed up my feet that much, but they are kind of "flat" and I do get aching pain in them sometimes. I've tried to train myself to walk properly, which has helped a bit. I think toe walking is fine as one skill ...

I remember my little sister toe walking. She has always had a weird gait. Is she autistic? Good question. We are estranged. In my unofficial opinion, my father and all of my sibs and my two children are either autistic or have BAP. I’m somewhat distant from my younger sister, too. Although we get a...

Bottom of the foot, right?

But sometimes also results in ankle tightness in the morning, has that been your experience?

. . . The memory palace helps both - you create pictures of things you can put in a "place" (which might be the house you grew up in or a museum you love to visit) in your mind - these things are associated with things you want to remember - and place them on locations (loci) in the palac...
