^Thank you. My s/daughter has ordered one of those alert pendants for me. You're very right about the muscle situation. Waiting to be taken for an x ray. There was concern about the level of pain I'm in. I have a low pain threshold though, and am prone to physical reactions to things like fear and s...

First time I hit my head against the bedroom wall in doing so. For some reason that really affected my upper left leg and knee. Then the second time my legs gave way trying to get into bed. Both falls have resulted in what would be called ‘muscle pain’ according to my (s)daughter. They had to be cal...

Although the article is true to a certain extent in getting help as early as possible is essential to ensure a better outcome compared to late / missed diagnosis. But it is misleading in that if a person is diagnosed late like myself, they probably have milder symptoms & can pass as NT to stran...

I first saw a pdoc in late 1973. I wasn't dxed with Asperger's/ASD till May 2019. That only happened because I moved to be near my (s) daughter, and she backed me up. My previous mental health team in Essex had repeatedly turned a deaf ear to my mentions of autism. Like a lot of people first diagnos...

Very basic. Via a shortened version of my Promethease report. Used to be available via xcode.life but doesn't seem to be available any more.

A maths classmate in the 4th form. It was for those who were seen as not being too good at Maths. My Achilles heel? Geometry. Probably at 'borderline intellectual functioning' level for it. At that point there was nothing to suggest my classmate was particularly intelligent. As you'll see he improve...

You can't make all students intellectually equal,but you should have a system that does its utmost to maximise the potential of each child.That requires a holistic approach. One capable of teasing out the reasons why a student may not be living up to their potential. I'm all for students being educa...

Thanks for your reply. Like you I'm wary of raising the issue for fear of ridicule/ a contemptuous response. Especially as I'm 64 and ADHD has never been raised a subject with a pdoc in 47 years of being a psych patient. In 2008 I suggested to my then care coordinator that there might be more going ...

I will start by saying a few, but not many, online tests for ADHD have suggested I may have mild ADD. I'm currently doing info gathering re my interest in genealogy. Finding the separate pieces of info is not an intellectually difficult task. However trying to coordinate them is much more of a strug...

I have the opposite i.e I find it hard to tell when I'm full up. Also prone to dehydration because I'm not good at knowing when I need to drink.

I seem to recall that you've done well on the "conventional" tests, too----like the Wechsler's. Wechsler's are a good test. The problem with online only or ones taken individually is that the quality of those tests can be highly dubious at times and doing a test alone can mess with the re...

If someone were to use their high IQ to produce something, like a book or a mathematical or scientific reasoning - something that required an investment of significant effort as well as the possession of a natural 'gift' - then maybe the creeping self-doubt would be easier to shake off? I quite agr...

There's the temporary high of getting a good score on a high range IQ test and letting people know(boasting,bragging, ego boosting) and then the rapid dive into 'imposter syndrome'. The negative self judgement. That sooner or later I'll be outed as a ' fraud'. Perhaps its something to do with the k...

You could try Mega. 20GB Free and more if you pay Thanks for trying to help but unfortunately= total crap. Firefox regularly goes into 'no response' mode when using it. When it does work and I upload folder names are listed,but they're empty. I'm not a tech genius or even average for that matter . ...

firemonkey, my reactions are similar to yours. I'm seemingly never satisfied, except those temporary highs before I drop the other shoe on myself. I had a lot of shoes dropped on me as a child, so if I don't drop it on myself, my experience is that somebody else will and it hurts. I would like to s...
