ZacWolf posted a topic in FeedbackBased on a first glance of a topic with 87+ replies, I think it would be very beneficial to first split Medication and Therapy into two separate top-level forums, and then have a series of sub-topics (especially for medications). Perhaps for drug classes: NeuroTransmitter Benzodiaspemes Anti-psychotics Cannabinoids Other Just as a start... Also, a sticky post establishing etiquette would be very helpful. For example, the legality of Cannabinoids is far from universal, not to mention the topic of Other (but there is actual academic work being done on substances that have been considered non-therapeutic in the past ), so comments denigrating someone's experience with such medications as being "irresponsible" because they are illegal in some places is simply not helpful. Maybe point out that these posts should never be taken as "recommendations" but just as individuals stating their personal experiences, and thus should be read as a stepping stone for further research or discussion with a medical professional? Just some thoughts. -Zac
This is a bit of a strange topic, but I'm curious to know what people think about the use of smilies/emoticons as a means of communication on Autism forums. I've been told in the past that I over-use them and I've had people misinterpret the reasons for my use of them, but I personally consider them to be a great communication tool. One could sometimes be the difference between my interpretation of a post as friendly or hostile, and while I've gotten over this now, I do feel more at ease with people who use them a lot, and I'm able to understand the intentions behind their posts more quickly than I otherwise would. What do you think about them? Do you find them helpful and informative when it comes to online communication, or are they (as some people have said) an unnecessary annoyance that make posts more difficult to interpret?
Hi, As mentioned in the help, support and advice thread, I have pasted below a series of short videos by Dr. T Attwood on Aspergers syndrome. I related with most if not all of it. I am curious to read what other Aspies on this forum think about these videos. I just want to know if anyone else has experienced these aspects in their lives or is it just me. and finally Thanks for your time. Mish
