At the moment the Kindle Edition of a book called "The Dentist" (The DS Cross mysteries Book 1) by author Tim Sullivan, the main character is a detective with Asperger's syndrome, is free to download and read, see link below: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Dentist-DS-Cross-mysteries-Book-ebook/dp/B089T5V3RT/ref=sr_1_1?dchild=1&keywords=Tim+Sullivan+The+Dentist&qid=1

  4. I am not eligible to take part in this as I haven't worked in an office environment for over ten years, but I'll make a comment. I am male (on the autistic spectrum) and was moved from a room where I was the sole occupant of, into a predominantly female office of about twelve people about eleven years ago. I found it hard going as the conversation often was about female topics, which as a male I couldn't join in with or felt inhibited from joining in with. I felt out of place and eventually I concluded that I was feeling a form of (unintended) ostracism. Due to spending cuts, my post was cut the following year.
  5. I agree, I would have thought with the lockdown, more people would have been on the Forums which I use, but the forums seem less busy. perhaps people are doing diy or gardening etc.

    I was wondering if there was a reason for the lack of new posts and what could be done to attract new posters.
  7. Well done and also for your other achievement. I am going back to work next week, I am really looking forward to that. I use public transport so to get to and from work so that is a worry (small risk of Covid, but chance of not getting on the bus if it is too full). I am lucky to still have a job. Life will be very hard for a lot of people who have lost their jobs or who's businesses have been damaged. It is soul destroying looking for work when there is mass unemployment, applying for jobs and keep getting rejected, not to mention money worries that go with unemployment.
