Hey Min, I've got chronic fatigue syndrome...

It's chronic I tell ya... It hits me the hardest every Tuesday evening just when I need to take the bins out?
What a convenience co-incidence!!!

RE: Autism Spectrum Disorder
I had my final post-session for my autism yesterday. And I now have a brief summary of my symptoms to go along with my main assessment. I'll omit my address and also replace my real first name with "Hammy" but otherwise leave everything verbatim:

Quote:Dear Hammy,

The results from your Autism Assessment concluded that you meet criteria for Autism Spectrum Disorder, due to:

A.      Persistent difficulties in social communication and social interaction across contexts and manifested by all three of the following:

1. Difficulties in social-emotional reciprocity.
2. Difficulties in nonverbal communicative behaviors used for social interaction.
3. Difficulties in developing and maintaining and understanding relationships.

B.     Restricted, repetitive patterns of behaviour, interests, or activities as manifested by two of the following:

1. Stereotyped or repetitive motor movements, use of objects or speech.
2. Insistence on sameness, inflexible adherence to routines, or ritualised patterns of verbal or nonverbal behaviour.
3. Highly restricted, fixated interests that are atypical in intensity or focus.
4. Hyper or hypo reactivity to sensory input or unusual interest in sensory aspects of the environment.

And as I am alexithymic and struggle greatly with interoception here's a video on that as welll:

Thanks for sharing. Glad you're getting the help you need.
"Of course, everyone will claim they respect someone who tries to speak the truth, but in reality, this is a rare quality. Most respect those who speak truths they agree with, and their respect for the speaking only extends as far as their realm of personal agreement. It is less common, almost to the point of becoming a saintly virtue, that someone truly respects and loves the truth seeker, even when their conclusions differ wildly."
