I'm very uptight and "adult" at work and anywhere I'm not comfortable. At home... I'm not THAT childish (he says, putting his plush fish down on top of the Lego car). OK, my manner isn't very child-like, but I like playing and general silliness. I'm lucky enough to have a few friends who a...

So far, I've built up a vague idea of who a few people are. Much the same as in "real life".... :(

What this has hammered home is that, for a couple of years at least, I was exceptionally /lucky/. If I can't cajole or coerce my doctor into re-referring me, I'd consider going "private." Wouldn't be able to afford it for long, though.

A few months after my diagnosis with autism, my therapy for anxiety and depression was cancelled. OK, not so much cancelled as discontinued: the psyhotherapy service of our local National Health Service trust went through one of the hostile reorganisations we get these days. My therapist was re-allo...

Don't be hard on yourself. You do have a genuine, recognised disability that causes these problems. Frankly, if you do have trouble getting a job after university and need to live on disability payments for a while, that's OK. You'd rather do more than that, which is admirable. It'll be great if you...

There are SO many reasons why people do self-harm. Borderline Personality Disorder certainly doesn't have a monopoly on it, so the person who gave you the diagnosis on that basis was just plain incompetant. There is a link between autism and self-harm. We often hurt ourselves when overwhelmed or ang...

Classical music teachers seem to consider "Sight-reading", or playing on first sight, to be a specific skill. A bit different from learning a score note-by-note, I guess. I seem to be naturally quite good at sight-reading, and don't know how to go about it any other way! There are limitati...

I got back into Lego about 10 years ago, while suffering from severe anxiety disorder. It was something cheerful to do with my hands, and a low-pressure kind of creativity. Due to limitations of space and money, I have a modest collection by AFOL standards- 3 and a half shoeboxes. Sorted into little...

It depends how upmarket I'm trying to sound.... In my "polite" accent, the only difference between the words is that "four" is emphasised. It sounds a bit like a stutter: "Table four-four, my good man." In my everyday accent, no trouble: "Tehbul fuh FAW, mate."...

One of my friends has a spider-catcher pole, which puts a good couple of feet between you and the spider when you remove it. It works by gripping the spider with long plastic bristles, and she swears by it. (I think this is the one: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Spider-Catcher-B2001/dp/B000X26IRE/ref=sr_...

When you're starting out in an art-form, you're not going to be very good at it. It's very easy to forget that, and judge your early efforts too harshly. From my own experience in a songwriting group, I know most of us start out writing really simple, derivative songs. Gradually they get more comple...

Thanks for all your comments on this! I really am going to have to go back to "bad times" rules- the things I learned to do when I was not overworked but WAS severely depressed. That is, keep sustainable, moderate activity going, and remember to praise myself for it, however stupid that fe...
