Re: Worried

I agree with you, Isap. Asperger's seems very likely. I have it, and feel just the same for animals, and I became a vegetarian long ago, because of it. I wouldn't want to be any different than the way I am. I feel my talents are more important to me than my difficulties. Life can be very hard for us.

Re: cmht consultant discharged me, though unwell.

I'm afraid I can't give any advice, for we're up against an inadequate system. I've just read through this depressing litany of posts and it's all too horribly familiar to me. I sought a diagnosis for autism after the death of my parents. I simply couldn't cope in many ways and my health was deterio...

Re: Trying to find new friends/ feeling less alone

Does anyone else struggle with these feelings? And if so, how do you cope with it? Should I try and push myself to find new people or will I just be alone forever? Hi Daria! Yes, I did, until I discovered that my 'problem' was autism (female-type Asperger's for want of a better name). Depression, p...

Re: Mother is extremely clingy to son?

If your brother had autism/Asperger's it would make more sense, but from what you say it sounds more as if your mother has an attachment disorder or dependent PD (the obsessive traits and anxiety come with it).

Re: BPD?

Just a short reply for I'm very tired and my eyes are stinging. Before anyone suspects they may have BPD, and for those who have been diagnosed with it, a word of warning. It may not be BPD at all, especially if you're female (3 out of 4 BPD diagnoses are women) and if you feel you've been different...

Re: Empathy

Hello Fiona. I'm so sorry to hear about your poor dog. My little cat died a few hours ago in my bed, and my eyes are stingling through crying. I think I'm using this forum as a way of coping with it all, so I know exactly how you feel. I have autism which means having lots of extreme sensitivities a...

Re: Personality Disorder

Hello Astrid. You might not have a personality disorder at all. You say you have no friends and suffer from anxiety, depression and mood swings from a very early age. All these could mean that you could actually be on the autism spectrum - as I am. Very often women with Asperger's syndrome are misdi...

Re: GOOD MORNING, what are your plans for today?

I really don't know what my plans are. I've been crying most of the night because one of my little cats, Tara, was dying. I feel so guilty for going out for a few hours yesterday, for I should have been with her. When I got back at 3pm I found her in the hall, and thought she was dead, but she wasn'...

Re: Autism

'High-functioning' autism isn't a mental health problem, but it often comes with them - anxiety, depression, OCD, etc. So many people, even so-called professionals, get it wrong about autism. Autism is a pervasive developmental condition - not a disorder, just a difference in seeing the world, so in...
