Feeling frustrated and stressed. I'm struggling to use a program called DNA Painter and getting nowhere fast. I've explained the problem I'm having on a FB genealogy group I go on. I learn best with clear and precise written instructions focussing on a specific task. As in- Step 1 do this . Step 2 D...

Back when we were kids in the 1960s, kids used to routinely get the Mumps. The vaccine for Mumps wasn't developed until I was 6 years old. I'm lucky I never got the Mumps. One possible (rare) complication was "mumps encephalitis." I'd actually gone back to school late when it was thought ...

In fact, being ahead academically as a young child, yet struggling socially and emotionally is one of the biggest ways that Autistic kids are noticed as Autistic. I guess I was an exception to that rule. My academic performance went south a few months after turning 9. I found out many decades later...

I've never been able to relate my ASD to the concept of developmental delay, perhaps because up to the age of about 9 years old I was ahead of the pack academically. A very similar situation to mine . I was doing better up to the age of 9 than boys who later went on to take scholarships to get into...

Neurodevelopmental disorder/developmental delay/difference/impairment/disability? I'm not sure what to think. Having a SMI along with the ASD adds to that uncertainty. At what point does 'disability' become a more apt word to use than 'difference'? I've never worked.I've had very few friends.My (s) ...

My pdoc phoned my (s)daughter this morning to find out how I was doing. She said that apart from some persistent paranoia, about my neighbour(s) I’m doing quite well. The pdoc said said that that will always be there to some degree. She also updated him about the falls I’d had. My (s) daughter said ...

I'd stopped wetting the bed at night by the average age for doing so. However for the 1st two years at prep school I wet the bed virtually every day.. During that time I wasn't wetting the bed at home.Could it have been a trauma response? Luckily it had stopped by the time I went to public school.
