Its pretty simple - Take a week's allowance and allocate it to doing something recreational...if you don't end up spending it all, add the remainder to the next week's investment, or put it aside for something recreational the next week. No one Invests 100% of there income for retirement - Speak to ...

Here in the US, there is still a general attitude of Autism disappearing at 18. That's when services stop. Its far from reality. I wasn't diagnosed until I paid out of pocket for testing, and its been like hunting unicorns to try and get any real, practical help. You do have a few options open to yo...

It can be really hard to accept yourself as you are. You are recognizing that you really don't want to do things that other people are doing and that's a great first step. Its also fine to be grateful for what you have, but too much of that can feel like you are gas-lighting yourself, especially if ...

A things value is whatever one person is willing to pay for it. Its cost is not the same thing.

I'm so glad someone as reality-based, and medically trained as Tucker finally diagnosed him. /sarcasm

Perhaps your main character was somehow assigned to the wrong element? That could create conflict both inner and in the outer world. Getting from the wrong place to the right one?

If there were multiple cases, I might agree, but there is no profit happening with the one case he was accused of. And no, he wasn't struck off the register for was malpractice. So I'd disagree there. I also give him some credit for NOT letting his legal team use autism as a defense. He d...

Autism or no, he only had a month to make a formal appeal and did not. The Daily mail is making a "meal" out of nothing as per usual. [As an aside, An adult with the same diagnosis would also be very likely to have cancer indeed. Its just not likely in children. So its A big mistake, but a...

There are acceptable ways to raise money to fund a special interest. If Building or restoring PC's is yours, you can always build and sell them, or Show others how to upgrade/build/restore their own. That would allow you to use e-bay, or youtube, or etsy etc. to make money in exchange for providing ...

I'm not sure I understand your point, but from what I can tell you are making a rather large over-simplification. There are 3 asd levels, but they are not based on anything linear. A person can be a level 1 or a 3 and still not have any issues with sensory processing at all.

The situation you describe isn't age shaming. Age shaming is calling someone a "boomer", for instance. You were being paid a compliment. If you can't accept it in the spirt its offered, the best thing is to say nothing. Otherwise, you might end up being the rude one in the conversation. If...

Don't worry...its not likely your GP will be dismissive. ARFID is often comorbid with ADHD. ASD, and other disorders. No one is likely to tell you is just because you have ASD.

One of the reasons is so that the chances of at least one parent will be alive and able to support the child until its old enough to survive on its own, yes. People can also have purely selfish motives about wanting grandchildren - or an only child might want a sibling etc.

ARFID is fairly common among those on the spectrum. I wouldn't worry about it being dismissed by your GP. If it is though, its a very good sign that you need another one. Not sure of how it works in the UK exactly, but I when I discussed it, I got a referral for more specialized treatment. The Link ...
