 Forum: General Autism Discussion   Topic: Extroverts have Less Cognitive Decline?

My husband's Alzheimer's doctor said the single best type of brain exercise is socializing. So it might not be the personality trait of extroversion protects against cognitive decline, but the tendency to have more socializing is the secret medicine. If so, you can still be good if you force your in...

Acronym that helps you predict who will do well in psychotherapy: Y.A.V.I.S.

Stands for young, attractive, verbal, intelligent, and successful.

Seems kinda unfair. These people will do well in everything.

When I was a child (like before age 12), I had constant memory problems. Namely, forgetting what I ate at breakfast that day, or forgetting what I wanted to say just minutes ago. Which made my parents always angry with me. Being a curious, knowledge-seeking aspie, and wanting to keep earning their ...

I'm sorry you are having such a hard time, Kitty. We have had a lot of dark, gray days the past week, but every time the sun peeks through it pleases me very much. Are you opening your drapes or shades to get sunshine? A lot of times people develop Vitamin D deficiency if they don't go out much. Nex...

I understand well trained "emotional support" animals can sense when their human is about to have an anxiety attack, or in other cases a seizure, go over to the human and sit near them, calming the human. I find this absolutely remarkable.

Sorry you are struggling, but it seems the worst symptoms are mental ones, cabin fever, etc. You'll be ok. Call Amazon's customer service, in a patient tone of voice explain what happened to you and why you need home delivery, as well as EBT recharge or just send you the order again and agree they c...

I've had deep scaling before and it wasn't that bad. Call around to several places for a quote, and ask if they have a payment plan. Letting your teeth go 4 years without a dental visit is a bad idea. If you get your teeth done regularly, it isn't too traumatic. Also, it helps to know the staff by n...

Congratulations! Do you have a "handicap" sticker? (you probably do---just thought I'd ask). You definitely deserve to splurge after all you've been through. Is your husband still able to drive? I have handicap plates. My husband gave up driving about 3 or 4 years ago and surrendered his ...

I come a little late to this conversation, but I wanted to tell you, firemonkey, that I have always liked you and read your posts with interest (except during those intervals when I wasn't participating here at all). You have always struck me as a kind person who hurts no one, which is far more than...

Make/model? Car ppl are always curious. And whether new or old, $500, $5,000, or $50,000 - congrats! New to you cars are always something to celebrate.

Very nice. What colour is it? Red, and I had to pay extra for it. I said to the salesman (a nice man I have dealt with before), "This is the last car I will ever buy*, and it might as well be RED!" * I'm in my late 60s. I tend to keep a car a long time... by the time this one is used up, ...

Monitor your own internal state. Do NOT let them force you to work right through your breaks or lunch. You need those times for yourself.

To some extend, diagnoses seem somewhat arbitrary between different psychologists. Is it possible for one shrink to say, "I think you have PTSD," and another to say, "I think you have depression." for example ? I ask, because I'm seeing a shrink, hoping to get my foot in the doo...
