Fingers

Saw my pdoc yesterday. The possibility of ASD was mentioned. My stepdaughter mentioned my clumsiness. The pdoc had me do something that involved touching tips of fingers together. After doing it the pdoc said I was quite dyspraxic.

Re: Help for adults

I'm under mental health services and everything gets related to the psych diagnosis. Having a professional intelligent enough to pick up on things ,ie it's not all down to a mental illness diagnosis, would help. Unfortunately most mental health professionals aren't that intelligent.

Re: Toenails

I'm not sure I'd qualify to use a podiatrist. I'm not sure having difficulty cutting your toenails counts.

Toenails

Clipping/cutting your toenails . Who struggles with this task? Between struggling to see them and using the clippers it's very difficult.

Re: That damned cafetiere

There were no instructions.My granddaughter tried assembling it but the rubber seal to go round it kept dropping off.

Do you swing your arms when walking?

Do you swing your arms when walking? This question was posed on autism forum. I had never thought about it so I went out for a walk to see. I don't.

Re: Will Britain be able to make a sucess of Brexit?

I voted remain. I think though we have to respect the democratic will of the people as to the result. The only exception would be if enough leave voters publicly announced through a government petition that they had changed their minds. Absent that it's about getting the best deal possible , which s...
