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. As it is my stepdaughter found a bigger one for me that was £3 cheaper and didn't have to be assembled. It works well. It also has a scoop for measuring out the coffee. I use 2 scoop...

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.

That's what you get for having the non-verbal intelligence of a brain dead gnat and motor skills that suck big time . It's going to have to ...

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...

Ring pulls

Last week I threw away a ring pull tin of scallops because after being unable to pull the ring pull back I resorted in vain to trying to open it with a kitchen knife. That lead me to looking for a gadget to help. https://www.completecareshop.co.uk/kitchen-aids/bottle-and-jar-openers/bottle-multi-ope...
