My (step)daughter has described me as 'severely autistic'. I don't see that I am though. I am dual diagnosed ASD and schizophrenia; how much that affects things I wouldn't like to say.

I'd be absolutely useless on such a game due to slow speed of response. What's your score on the Vineland Adaptive Behaviour Scale? A good question. I've never done it. Is it available online?

Lockdowns keep on having to be done because of addle brained anti vax types who selfishly believe their individual rights trump other people's health and well being. Added to that is a government that prefers to do what protects their vote share rather than what's best for the nation as a whole.

What kind of mattress do you have? If you don't have one already, might be a good idea to try and look into a memory foam mattress. I was getting sore from sleeping with the spring mattress me and my boyfriend had before we got one of those, but now if anything it can be hard to get out of bed sinc...
