I am generally caring, polite(apart from the occasional human/unintentional lapse) and nice so can't see very poor social skills being related to that. I would guess that many people have what are deemed good social skills but are total bastards as people( thinking of politicians,especially right wi...

No family members or friends close by that could help quickly. It is one the potential situations I dread ie way above my organisational/practical pay grade. In terms of professional organisations ie charities as I am not diagnosed with aspergers, dyspraxia etc I am not set up for help from those wh...

What do people here think of moving home? Currently I live in a high rise flat. It has been my home for over 19 years and I am well settled. The local council are talking of regenerating the area which may mean demolishing the block of flats. My anxiety levels have shot up (a) because of the logisti...

I will first clarify my comments by saying I am neither diagnosed AS or NVLD but most probably fit the latter better. I have only driven a car down a farm lane with my father accompanying me when I was a teenager. My father gave up after a short while because I was so inept. I have never taken drivi...

I went from pretty good to lousy in what were above average academic/intellectual environments . I was not a conscientious/swot type student. If I had initial difficulty with a subject, or it didn't interest me much, I would tend to put less effort into it.

I guess I need to get used to this not being primarily a mental health forum , and that terms used by those more knowledgeable about mental health will not necessarily be known here.
For those unaware what SMI means it can mean "Severe mental illness" or "Serious mental illness".

I do badly with visual spatial/"which shape fits" type questions on IQ tests but also have long term problems when it comes to socially interacting with others. However I am not sure I fit the criteria for aspergers re interests . Over 30 plus years I have gone from a period of being obses...

Sorry if I misunderstood you. There are charities and voluntary organisations in the UK who run courses and provide support to help people of all ages with ASD improve their social skills, and I think they will sometimes extend this support to those with other conditions. Sadly I know it varies fro...
