      Depression, Mental Health and Crisis Support   06/04/2017

      Depression, Mental Health and Crisis Support   Depression and other mental health difficulties are common amongst people on the autistic spectrum and their carers.   People who are affected by general mental health difficulties are encouraged to receive and share information, support and advice with other forum members, though it is important to point out that this exchange of information is generally based on personal experience and opinions, and is not a substitute for professional medical help.   There is a list of sources of mental health support here: <a href="http://www.asd-forum.org.uk/forum/index.php?showtopic=18801" target="_blank">Mental Health Resources link</a>   People may experience a more serious crisis with their mental health and need urgent medical assistance and advice. However well intentioned, this is not an area of support that the forum can or should be attempting to offer and we would urge members who are feeling at risk of self-harm or suicide to contact either their own GP/health centre, or if out of hours contact NHS Direct on 0845 4647 or to call emergency services 999.   We want to reassure members that they have our full support in offering and seeking advice and information on general mental health issues. Members asking for information in order to help a person in their care are seeking to empower both themselves and those they represent, and we would naturally welcome any such dialogue on the forum.   However, any posts which are deemed to contain inference of personal intent to self-harm and/or suicide will be removed from the forum and that person will be contacted via the pm system with advice on where to seek appropriate help.   In addition to the post being removed, if a forum member is deemed to indicate an immediate risk to themselves, and are unable to be contacted via the pm system, the moderating team will take steps to ensure that person's safety. This may involve breaking previous confidentiality agreements and/or contacting the emergency services on that person's behalf.   Sometimes posts referring to self-harm do not indicate an immediate risk, but they may contain material which others find inappropriate or distressing. This type of post will also be removed from the public forum at the moderator's/administrator's discretion, considering the forum user base as a whole.   If any member receives a PM indicating an immediate risk and is not in a position (or does not want) to intervene, they should forward the PM to the moderating team, who will deal with the disclosure in accordance with the above guidelines.   We trust all members will appreciate the reasoning behind these guidelines, and our intention to urge any member struggling with suicidal feelings to seek and receive approproiate support from trained and experienced professional resources.   The forum guidelines have been updated to reflect the above.   Regards,   The mod/admin team

I take this back. yes it does help social situations but in the long run as soon as you stop taking it you get a massive come down which is nt progressive at all just makes me feel like i did 8 years ago

yeah it's just like speed then....

 

I don't do anything like that whatsoever, But I know a fair few who do and its interesting to talk about the effects they get.

 

as much as they are harmful, from a scientific point of view i find stuff like that fascinating, and how certain chemicals react in different ways with the body!

 

if you want stimulants and have a sweet tooth, drink Monster, good stuff that is.

The thing i was refering to is similar in effect to speed however its not speed and its available via prescription but other wise is illegal however i dont think the MODS would be happy about me promoting the use of drugs so i wont mention the name of it but the thing i am refering to increases athletes performances by 60 percent

 

its the same with sigmund freud he use to snort enough cocain to kill a horse.

 

he would go " oh so whats the problem and he would sit in listen then take a break for 2 weeks or what ever while he snorts lots of sniff then come back and go hmm i know the answer now dear" lmao

 

i have a really depressive personality and i find stimulants greatly improve me as a person however i have discarded all other stimulants except caffine tablets but they work just fine for now.

 

if you consider these genius people like freud you will just think "wow - not only do they have alot to remeber but they have a lot of info to sort through to decide which is relvant" to be honest i dont think that level of knowledge would be possible with out stimulants i think our mind can only do so much before it needs external aide

 

Anything is bad if not taken in moderation but people generalise this more so with drugs but then if you look at what a drug is you will realise most things are drugs anything from the food you eat to the air you breather

 

a drug is just a substance that has a chemical reaction with your chemistry and is not produced internally by your body and so is externally accumulated and digested

 

lol if i start talking about this i ll end up writting for ever however if you are interested i can provide you a link to another forum i use with relevant details on a post regarding this

 

Take care
