Hello there, my name is Alan and I was diagnosed with ASD at a very young age. I used to be a mute Autistic and didn't begin talking until I was four or five years old. I know sign language as I was taught it because people thought I was deaf. I also have learning disabilities and mental health issues. My hobbies and interests are video games, manga/anime and computers. I want to make friends with other Autistic people.
Hello, I just wanted to introduce myself. My daughter started showing clear signs of OCD when she was about ten. As a Reuters of working with this for the past 6 years she has been receiving counselling from CAMHS. She was recently referred to the OCD specialist team at the Micheal Rutter Centre in London. She now has a diagnosis of ADHD and ASD. The OCD still stands but under control since starting sertraline medication. I would love to have more support from people who have similar children. My Dd is so wonderful but there are some aspects of parenting which are just so difficult if your kids ore not neurotypical. Also I am pretty sure I must be ADHD myself (inattentive type) and I am really struggling with the additional help my children need. I don't know if there is any point in seeking a diagnosis. I often feel overwhelmed by what I need to be doing, looking after the children, running my own business, running a home etc. I'm supposed to be working towards dd having a EHCP for school, helping her to sort out places which will be suitable for 6th form or further study after GCSEs. Anyway I could go on and on! It feels good to make contact and it's been really useful reading some of your other posts on this website. I'd be delighted to hear from any of you who have any words of support or advice. Thanks so much. Bluedog. :-)
