I hate having them. I wish I could just remove them so they never grow again. The white part is gross to me too , and if they get even a little long it's super uncomfortable. I hate seeing long nails , painted nails , whites of nails etc. I'm not sure why I think so strongly against them but I've b...

Is there anything worse than having a nail that's been bitten on?? They are edgy (get stuck in clothes eeeew), will mostly likely damage the cuticle when removing it by teeth, and you run the risk of digging too deep leaving your nails too short. That feeling is unacceptable. The worst part is when ...

We also have a son your age who will only eats chicken nuggets. I also love the arm flapping when they are excited :) :heart: We're trying to solve the issue and I can only pass on what we've been told will help and some experience I've gotten during the past years. The idea is to offer a lot of cho...

Thanks for you support guys. Nice to see you nostrum. I don't know when they can go to residential care, probably by age 18. It's not something I want to think about now and I'm not planning on letting that happen. I think the Covid19 affected me emotionally. The same kind of fever as I had during m...

I think it all came sinking in today. I don't have a good feeling about this at all. The future is looking awfully dark right now :cry: It's going to be him and his brother going straight to a supervised living and we as parents get to see them a few times a month. Classic autism = you're totally f*...

The levels are only there to help insurance companies and social care put a figure on how much resources are needed. Who knows what's going on inside the brain on someone who's Level 4, as you put it. Might just be a war going on and they can't break through at all to the world around them. I don't ...

I've not tried that one. A request. Please delete your answers. It is frowned upon to discuss answers. Those examples were to give you an idea, not for public discussion . You are supposed to work out the answers yourself without help from another person but you can use sources like Google. Same go...

^^ Anyone who has read my posts here knows that I have a spiky cognitive profile, with verbal IQ being significantly higher than non-verbal. With non-verbal I'm better (not good) at what would be fairly simple pattern recognition( to a lot of you) than I am at mental rotation . I'd like to say the ...

Would you mind using your skills helping me out with these 3 questions? I don't really get the hang of them. 1. https://ibb.co/5YhCL4b 2. https://imgbb.com/nMDRVbW 3. https://imgbb.com/vY10NjN 1.c 2.f 3.e All kind of the same. Just compare the upper with the middle row. Sometimes the same lines rem...

Can I ask what it is you do when you're not masking that would give you away? Do you start clapping your hands all of a sudden or rocking?

Wow, to say I'm out of my league would go beyond an understatement. I didn't start until I was 37 so I'd say if you're already learning languages and if we were comparing age-per-age you're a good 20+ years ahead of me. The thing you find about the work world though is it's 'sink or swim' in a lot ...

^ I should point out that my highest score is via a 'high range IQ test'. Tests done by people who have scored high on proctored tests and have a solid grounding in mathematics etc, but are not psychologists. They're aimed at those with 120+ IQs . A lot of traditionalists rubbish them because they'...

I am also one of the NT people here. I just don't think I have much input on what to do in social situations. I feel every bit as lost as you. I don't think anyone really likes cold talk. That part of sitting in a room idling with the colleagues - I know exactly what you mean. And it's like you need...

Without going into details, this sounds pretty much like the way Jason Lu does it. http://www.eikonabridge.com He's been on about video and pictures for a long while now. I have not been able to replicate the stuff he's done but it's quite obvious these kids are vacuuming information by watching ima...
