I am actually really keen to try Lamictal, because so many people seem to be on it and I've only ever heard good things about it. I was on Lamictal 100mg for 16 weeks. I am prone to adult acne and developed a rash on my neck and face. My psychiatrist noticed the rash and asked me about it. (Had I c...

I hate it a lot too, I feel like I have to stretch the truth about myself a little bit. My dad who does hiring at his work told me that you need to be enthusiastic and hype yourself a little. I hate that part the most. He said your basically advertizing yourself in a cover letter, and it needs to ta...

You people are confusing the tools with their users. For example, a gun is harmless if it is not used - leave guns alone and they won't be used to kill anyone. Video games have no relationship to obesity if they are not played. Just because people are stupid enough to use a cell phone while driving...

I'm definitely Bi and not confused. My friends know me as a Female Captain Jack Harkness. Best compliment I ever got in all my life. Makes it difficult to have relationships though. I actually gave up on having real relationships because of my AS. I don't want kids, I like both. I'm also terrified o...

I don't agree I think someone can have autism and schizophrenia, just look at MCDD and 22q11.2 deletion. I personally think the two are deeply connected. I have friends DXed with schizophrenia who come off as Aspies when they aren't having positive symptoms. I can really relate to schizo affective t...

I was self diagnosed for a period of time then I went and got it confirmed. It was very hard though a DX can be expensive and sometimes you get put on long waiting lists. Some people might not want a DX because of discrimination in their career choice. Sometimes a DX can be more harmful than good in...

I blame technology for my depression it's made everything more fast pace and complicated than it was when my parents were my age. People are becoming tied to machines even myself. I admit without a computer I wouldn't be able to spell or communicate as well, but sometimes I feel because we're so use...

I blame my many LDs for my slowness especially Audio processing disorder and Dyslexia. I had to tell my employer about them or else I wouldn't have managed to keep my job. They completely impair my ability to be efficient in the work place. If I didn't have those constantly holding me back I could'v...

I get that too. It's very annoying. I feel like it's worse when I'm mentally exhausted from either not enough sleep, over working, or sensory overload. I'm sure other people do it too, you might not notice it as much because they are better at hiding it. I can't hide it though and I know I get it pr...

Having obsessions is part of the learning process for me. What seems like an obsession is my brain trying to comprehend something to fullest and then some. Which is excellent and healthy. An obsession that is not part of a learning process that ultimately generates negative and harmful emotions or a...

I have been diagnosed dyslexic among other things. I have a difficult time reading and writing. I've learned proper grammar skills over and over with no success, and I can't even remember how to spell simple words on a bad day. I've given up on math completely. I'm lucky I can even use a cash regis...

You Are Somewhat Mature http://www.blogthingsimages.com/areyouimmaturequiz/mature-2.jpg You definitely act like an adult sometimes, but a big part of you is still a kid at heart. While your immature side is definitely fun, you're going to have to grow up sooner or later. It kinda depresses me becaus...

I do get a little defensive. I think it's because I've become accustom to feeling helpless, getting blamed for things, and not having a whole lot of say in my environment. There is a need to not feel belittled and it comes out very negatively because of the misinterpreted social ques between me and ...
