I think the vast 'middle' , including myself, gets sidelined when it comes to our needs being met .In my case,to be honest, whether sidelined or not it would make little difference . The damage has been done , and I have to live as best I can with how things are as opposed to how they could/should h...

Cotton wool. Just thinking about it makes me shudder! The mouth feel of bananas,though I like the flavour.

I've always felt I don't have sensory symptoms. For sure repetitive sounds like the stop-starting of hammers and drills etc really f*****g annoy me, but is that really a sensory issue? Ditto the leaking wash basin tap Water was hitting the plug and the noise was really stressing me out . It took me ...

Spent part of this morning reducing my 10 sets of 20 attempts at slobrain down to 1x10 attempts.Could've cherry picked the best results but decided on using the earliest attempt from each set instead. https://i.imgur.com/ecpl4aV.png Not the best, but not half bad for a 65 year old either.

Youre a Brit, but at one time you collected "baseball cards"? Thats interesting. My father was serving as British consul in San Francisco at the time.When we came back to the UK I switched to collecting cards of footballers. Sadly I lost both sets of cards when my father sold the bungalow...

This is maybe not in the same vein, or a little left field , I collect scores from tests. When young and living in San Francisco, in the mid 1960s,I collected Topps baseball cards. I can't remember what I collected in the the 1970s. Between 1982 to about 1990 I bought a lot of singles/lps/cassettes/...

Thank you all for your replies. My current Slobrain interest/obsession doesn't make me anxious but can make me frustrated with myself.

Thanks kraftiekortie . 'Sameness' broadly speaking is a good way of describing my lifestyle. However I do my best not to kick up a fuss when things veer from what I ideally want. That would be disrespectful to those who do their best for me.

How much of a part does compulsion play in obsessive and repetitive behaviour;would you say? I have this tendency to want to repetitively do certain things. What it is can wax and wane over time. Currently I'm 'obsessed' with Slobrain . It can sometimes be something even more trivial like rolling di...

^^^ Maybe some are OK,but I don't fit into the' terrible symptoms but did really well at x' category. Pressure and stress are my versions of superman's green kryptonite. That may be more to do with the SMI I also have rather than the ASD. Though to be honest I'm not up to date on research re ASD and...

I have definite problems when it comes to organising and planning. I'm far from the best when it comes to multi step tasks.

My (s)daughter agreed to be my official carer a year or two ago. It was done as I was having my annual care act review. At some point I will make her power of attorney.

It''s only been since 2018 that the so called health professionals have cottoned on the fact that there's more going on than SMI in my case. That meant over 40 years of difficulties not being recognised and adequate help not being given. It also meant lots of criticism for for failing to be as good ...

It's been said I do better when there's routine and structure. The trouble being my worst EF weaknesses are organising and planning. There's a lot of things I'm rather crap at, and not much I'm good at. I basically suck at the skills needed to navigate as smoothly as possible through life. With fail...
