  1. Well i'm a strong believer in there being no such thing as a bad experience, just a learning experience. Through those really dark days you learn more about yourself, and in time you'll learn how to combat the cloud. The more you go through these experiences, the more you become an expert in your own life. Everything happens for a reason, even the really bad stuff that no one understands. They teach us, they develop us, they make us more tolerant to even the most evil of people. If we gain tolerance to even people that have wronged us, then we can lead from example and show people the error of there ways through our resolve. But unfortunately, most people roll over and play the victim. (it's understandable of course) but sometimes, we just need to go that extra round in life, even when we don't think we can.
  2. 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 appropriate support from trained and experienced professional resources. I strongly urge all members to read the above. No this isn't open for a debate, These are the rules. And there in place for a reason.
  3. Depression is usually caused by a significant (usually bad) life change. And from there we tend to defeat ourselves, and let it beat us. We come home from work, slump down infront of the tv, and eat sugary snacks. We go into self medication mode with food. these foods do lots of negative things to us, they cause the brain to release serotonin. The sweetnes of sugar gratify the mind because they fill the dopamine receptors or cause the body to do so. Very simular to how cocaine works. This begins a downward spiral however, as these foods also provoke depression, and mess with hormonal levels. Hormones out of sync is a recipe for disaster. At his point, you really need to fix what you are eating as soon as possible. The second factor, is getting stuck in a rut. You will get into a habit of doing things, that are unhelphful to your depression i.e staying at home watching tv, staying online until 4am, over use of facebook, alchool abuse, repetitive daily habits that you know are not helping. So to cope with it? change your daily routine form the way you get out of bed, to the direction you walk to work. Avoid the sofa, and go out for a walk and reflect on your thoughts. Go for nice days out, even on your own. Go to the woods, and just sit and be. Maybe not post on the forums for once, and just listen to your own mind ticking over. Also try and look to the futre and think in a positive light. Smile and be nice to others around you and try and keep on top of your chores. Don't let things mount up, and become impossible. Fix your diet by avoiding grains, and sugars. Eat plenty of omega 3 containing foods. The key is to keep on top and not let things mount on top of you.
  4. LOL If only you were around 8-9 months ago. This is a really exiting time for me to be on the forum, especially when members are posting as enthusiastically as you are. I dunno, some may disagree, but i've got a really good feeling, about the dynamic of the forum now. regardless of our recent differences, one can't deny that sa skimrande is posting pure magic at the moment, and then the icing on the cake, your enthusiastic reports to sa skimrande's posts. It's a recipe for forum greatness, and it's fascinating to watch. Hopefully we can start getting the quieter members to dip there toes in the water.
  5. I'm the only guy i know that walks down the street, saying, 'Attention please, this is platform alteration. The 2056 southern service to Brighton, will now depart from platform 3' I could be wrong.
  6. If it's the groups consensus i'll pin this? Quote my post with a smiley if you agree and i'll get it sorted.
  7. Nice place Pulborough, scenically very beautiful. I like the station, it's like an artist's painting.
  8. Merry, check this topic out, A-S warriors mission, changing your view on aspergers forever. Btw, it's really old, and embarrassing to read again lol.
  9. Darn it! lol, although your missing Pulborough and Redhill. Other than that, very impressed, Spot on.
  10. Did it again, from the perspective of my younger self, and i scored 37.
  11. LOL i was saying all of this a year ago, but you lot were getting upset with me.
  12. I think that must be the strangest name for a town ever, i might have to google the origin and get back I lived in worthing for 4 years, it could be a nice little town, it just needs alot of money injected into it. They've recently put in an £18 million swimming pool. Right, in a minute i might have to do Bognor regis, to London victoria
  13. Sorry guys, i have to do this, im going to test myself and list every station from brighton to portsmouth. (excluding Littlehampton and Bognor regis as they spur off the main line into an end of the line station) Here we go, Welcome aboard the southern service to Portsmouth harbour, calling at: Hove, Aldrington, Fishersgate, Portslade, Southwick, Shoreham by sea, Lancing, East worthing, Worthing, West worthing, Durrington on sea, Goring by sea, Angmering, Ford, Barnham, Chichester, Fishbourne, Bosham, Nutbourne, Emsworth, Warblignton, Havant, Bedhampton, Cosham, Fratton, Portsmouth and southsea, And Portsmouth harbour. I'm so sad lol
  14. This is intriguing..... However sa skimrande, i was one of the blessed few that was diagnosed early. So ive had a lifetime to fight it, (as i knew what i was dealing with) Thats's how (i quess) i can use my aspergers as an advantage. long hard road though. Still, i was expecting a much higher score.
  15. Oh my, i scored 14. can that be right? I have aspergers. Surely it must be higher? This is intriguing, maybe i really am NT now. Those questions would for sure of been awnsered differently say 5-10 years ago. (Much differently)
  16. I thought of another one... When i get off the train I talk like a station announcer, 'the train now approaching platform 3' etc. I also list every station that the on board announcer lists. Calling at Redhill, Gatwick airport, Three bridges, Horsham, all the way back to Bognor regis. I really don't know why i do it, i just get a lot of satisfaction out of it lol.
  17. If you went to the the doctor because you stubbed your toe, then you would be a hypercondriac. As you say, your mum thinks you may be on the spectrum somewhere. Just say, mum, I think you have a point, I'm thinking of consulting a doctor, what do you think?
  18. I still use my remote control as a finger skateboard. even though i quit skating nearly 10 years ago, that old habit hasn't left me. Oh btw, i have plenty more to come. This topic has not seen the last of me.
  19. This is the only ASD forum i belong to. I belong to 2 besides this one, and there fitness forums, one is based in america, and have a lot of fun there. I also run 2 forums, one went under, and the other is just a general one for my chruch, so they don't take up anytime at all lol.
  20. It's always worth a chat. The doctor can get you referred to a specialist, and then they can give you a better idea of what your dealing with. From your post, a lot of your traits sound like me, and i have aspergers.
  21. 16/7/14 - I'm still alive and doing very well! And although things ended on a sour note nearly two years ago now my memories of this forum are fond ones. This truly was a place of light during a time of intense darkness, and I'd like to thank all of those who provided words of wisdom and comfort to me, just when I needed it. The conversations between LancsLad, darkshine and I, are ones that I'll never forget. Each PM and each kind post in their own unique way helped cultivate the man I have become today. Without this forum, during the early days of 2012, I don't know if I would have coped with my circumstances as well as I did. I'm editing here, as I'm technically banned from the forum and this is my only form of communication. I just wanted to bury the hatchet and apologise for how things ended prior to my departure. I should have known that I would not have copped moderating THIS forum - I capitalise the word 'this' to add emphasis to the fact that it felt as if I was policing friends and family. I didn't feel right, and it sent me into quite the spin. This doesn't excuse my actions, but please know that during this time, my mindset was far from a healthy one. I post daily on another ASD forum under the name 'Ben' - I shan't name the forum, out of respect for you guys, but if you happen to bump into me, then you know who I am. I'm pleased to say that the help and support I received on this forum, has given me the motive to help others in the same way. It's become somewhat of subconscious passion of mine. Whether I'm right or I'm wrong, my words always come from the heart. I'm sorry to deface an old thread, but to be honest, this never really got a huge response anyway. Hope you're all doing well. Take care. A question that's asked a lot is, what does my member title mean? well: 0-9 is Norfolk Broads 10-49 is Salisbury Hill 50-99 is Scafell Pike 100-249 is Snowdon 250-499 is Ben Nevis 500-999 is Mt Blanc 1000-2499 is Kilimanjaro 2500-4999 is Mt McKinley 5000-9999 is K2 10000+ is Everest A question I get asked very frequently is how do I change my title like you do warrior? well Go to your profile, Click edit my profile, scroll down, and you should find a box called member title, Type into that box what you want your member title to be, Then save. Your new member title will now show. Anymore questions regarding this, then post below. Regards, Ben.
