 Forum: The Haven   Topic: Framework for Care of Upset Person

In my experience I've found that women (NT or otherwise) are better at dealing with an emotionally distressed person than men are (NT or otherwise). When I'm distressed or upset, I seek reassurance and sympathy, not advice. But then you can't really complain about people giving you advice because th...

I always thought it was a social standard not to greet strangers when you walk past each other, but so many people I know greet every stranger that they pass whenever we're out (unless we are in a busy place). I started to find it annoying. It seems that it doesn't matter what facial expression they...

I still as I have said before in another thread find it hard to accept when some people say ''we have to learn to live with this'' but how can we learn to live it when virus kills more people than flu, is more contagious, and can make more people ill to the point where health services struggle with...

Do you think you could edit the title in my thread in Members Discussion saying "[RESOLVED]", so that in future people will know that I do not need any more advice or anything regarding the subject of the thread.

Thank you.

I get jealous of NTs for not having things like autism, ADHD or other neurological differences or developmental delays holding them back, although NTs can still get mental health issues such as anxiety, depression and bipolar, it still doesn't seem to stop them making friends or fitting in. So I'm n...

As a person with ADHD I find full-time work will be too much for me, because being in the same place for long periods of time doing the same repetitive tasks every day will cause me to panic and go berserk with boredom, even if the job itself is enjoyable and not boring, the repetitiveness of it wil...

I wouldn't have the guts to write a nasty comment to random strangers on YouTube (or anywhere else), and I don't know how people that do live with themselves. Even though I'm behind a screen and 100% anonymous, I still couldn't do it. I always write nice comments, just to help people restore their f...

It's OK, I'm not so upset, because they said the same applied to the other comments who said they have neurological disorders but my username was 'tagged' because it was the most recent, not because of some spooky coincidence that I'm always singled out. Yes it's not acceptable but I think they woul...

It's OK, I asked the jerk why he/she picked on me only and not the others and he/she said it was because I was the most recent comment. Not logical but still a good enough reason, as I was just baffled why I got singled out.

Who the heck is that guy? :lol: And why does it matter? Sorry I don't relate to the idea of role models and character identifications. Regardless it does not matter if this person has one or thousands of autistic traits, disabling or not. It mattered this person connected with the 'right people', i...

Yes but how come they pick on me and not others who said the same thing I did? It's a bit like having a bag of different colour marbles and closing your eyes and picking one at random and it always happens to be the red marble each time. I feel like I have some sort of weird curse that makes me get ...

I was watching a YouTube video of a history documentary about Victorian schools, and someone wrote a comment saying "with my ADHD and anger issues I wouldn't have survived the Victorian times at school", and there was a load of comments by other people with ADHD or anxiety or whatever sayi...

Brexit hasn't really changed anything except make some European countries dislike us. Free healthcare will still be prioritized for foreign people over British people. I'm willing to bet the foreigners who get free healthcare do not include Americans. I don't think they do include Americans or Aust...

My mum told me once that people going into a pub on their own are considered "sad" - unless they're friends with the bartender or landlord or whatever and visit daily or at least weekly. But if you just go into a pub and sit and drink alone people will apparently laugh at you, particularly...

Are those really the right symptoms to prove he's autistic, or could it be his way, his background, the fact that he is a politician, or some other neurological disorder?
