I was 9 waiting quietly for the headmaster to come in and start the lesson. Other boys were being rather boisterous. The headmaster stormed in and, with a stern look on his face, approached me. 'What are you doing?' he said . I said I was doing nothing, as in not making a racket. ' Well you should b...

With a dx of schizophrenia( as well as ASD) I do worry about dementia, as there's an increased risk with the schizophrenia. My father at 92 now has to use a cane, but cognitively is a lot sharper than many half his age. If I can get fairly near to that I'll be happy. I'm checking my visual reaction ...

I still work part-time at a library.

I’m lucky to be relatively healthy with relatively few aches and pains.


Let's hope you stay relatively healthy for as long as possible.

The worst place for the self appointed (against research), very domineering , 'autistic elite' is Twitter.

I guess I should be grateful for making it to 66, with autism and severe mental illness.

On the 15th I officially became a geriatric/pensioner. Cognitively I still feel as sharp as ever, but the last 15 months has seen my physical health go in a downward direction- falls resulting in reduced mobility, atrial fibrillation , swollen legs and feet for which I'm getting compression stocking...

The second and last trained therapist 17 years before I got the Asperger's dx- 'If you want to be a good person'. As though I was some kind of criminal .

Are you on a token meter?



That's for a MONTH? 8O

Are you running a nuclear generator that I don't know about?



That's since I moved into this flat in the second week of last August.

I'm not on a token/prepayment meter. I pay by direct debit. There's no standing charge. First 62.00 kWH @53.688P, next 1108.00 kWh @32.592p

That doesn't sound right FM. I live in a house. Are you getting any payments from the government, you should be entitled to and getting the 'Energy Bills Support Scheme' (£60? a month) and you should be entitled to a one-off payment of £150 called the 'Warm Home Discount' which I had to apply for. ...

I was wrong. With VAT it's over £100 a week. An energy bills support scheme gives £67 a month to reduce the size of the bill.

My latest monthly bill,I don't have gas, was just under £400. I live in a small flat( but adequate size for me) consisting of kitchen-lounge, bedroom and bathroom. Energy crisis or not the prices are ridiculous. We have an intellectually and morally bankrupt Tory government more concerned with share...

I joined the gifted subreddit recently. There's more than a few 'Non gifted people are too boring and slow for my liking' types there. At school I was a mediocre pupil. Often described as 'disorganised and messy'. I like doing quizzes and tests from popular 'lowbrow' ones to ones that tax your brain...
