Re: Is Anyone Sensitive To Noise or Odors?

you should have a read of these posts I found about hypersensitive hearing. I found two great articles. one was a case study of a guy who was actually found to have hearing loss even though he'd put his fridge in a shed outside so he couldn't hear it hum and boarded up windows. There is a condition ...

Re: Is Anyone Sensitive To Noise or Odors?

I can tell when my neighbours in her garden as soon as I open my back door as she wears her perfume so strong! Hate having to get in cars when people are picking me up to go out as they often have strong aftershave/perfumes on and the radio blaring out, with the car engine going and them talking it'...

Re: Hello from Dublin

Hello I had developmental delays in childhood and was late in walking etc. I think because in my instance they believed it was because they hadn't found my thyroid wasn't working until I was nearly two so I was given quite intensive physio to 'catch up' (as I couldn't even sit up unsupported at 23 m...

Re: Should this forum have a paralell Facebook Group?

I prefer to type I have speech problems. I also have autism and due to this have auditory processing disorder so struggle with processing speech and facial expressions, particuarly with strangers. Also with time lag on video (my BB slow) it's impossible to lip read/understand signs.

Re: Should this forum have a paralell Facebook Group?

I left FB and closed account.

Why can't you have a private chatroom on the site like some other sites have?

Re: Talking to people in my head

I think the MD is more intense than that it's not just daydreaming to work out how to solve practical solutions they often have an intense fantasy worlds with different characters. Some even become those characters to deal with real life. They might create multiple characters and be a different char...

I don't know if its cos the sites are not active but it seems funny they're active until I join so I go away believing I'...

Anyone need mobility aids?

Does anyone else use mobility aids? I find 2 crutches really hard to co-ordinate but don't always have the balance (depends on how uneven the ground is) to manage with one and though rollators are fine where its flat and level they're hard work on uneven surfaces also. I have to use a wheelchair if ...

Re: Dyspraxic speech

yes I realise it's going to be no easy task as its a developmental delay and I'm now heading for 50. I have always had difficulties with balance/co-ordination issues and social skills. I didn't realise that social difficulties were also a part of dyspraxia on its own (ie without having autism sepera...

I have always had problems getting words out since childhood.

Re: Keeping Current With Fresh Posts

Thank you. I completely agree, Whilst we can't force people to post X number of posts a week (and I wouldn't want that) it would be great if it were more lively here. I try to answer posts that are going unanswered where I can as I'm conscious people in many cases will be feeling a bit distressed a...

Re: Better writer than speaker

I really struggle to get words out and always have since childhood. I've never been able to speak on a phone, so just say I can't work out what people are saying if I can't see their faces. People assume I must depend on lip-reading. These days with texting and emailing it's much easier for me. It a...
