      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

Now that's tragic! Classic film though :lol: I used to love that film as a kid along with a fair few other 70's and 80's "classics" that would be deemed as total rot by kids today :P I'd have to agree when it comes to - escape to witch mountain (or something like that) the blooming thing used to be shown WAY TOO MUCH for my liking - someone rip up the reel :devil:

 

Maybe we should do a what tragic film are you watching thread :D

Go for it :)

Olde Hansa Musicus - the music of the medieval-themed restaurant in Tallinn: http://www.oldehansa.ee/

Is that baroque? I once heard a piece I liked years ago when I was doing GCSE music - it was from a tape of examples and I always liked this certain clip (which isn't what you've posted about - it just reminded me ;)) I never knew what the piece was called but it was nice...

Nothing like a little Lou Reed for a sunday morning :D

 

I prefer walk on the wild side and perfect day - but this was quite chilled and relaxed - never heard it before but hey, it's alright :thumbs:

I cannot even listen to 'perfect day' any more after that bl00dy awful single the BBC released... a pity, because prior to that it was a song I loved - was actually (despite the undertones of stalking and obsession) the song my ex and I had our first dance to at our wedding! Will still occasionally give Transformer a spin, though - skipping PD - just to listen to David Bowies lovely backing vocals on 'Satellite of Love'. Come in at about 2:00 minutes but really come into their own after the tempo change Ahhhhhh Ahhhh ahhhh ahhhh:

No, the Baroque era for music started around 1600-ish. I'm currently listening to the Palladian Ensemble's A Choice Collection: Music from Purcell's London.

Ok :D

 

I haven't a clue what that is - going through a weird phase right now with music - might have to dust off something a little more... dunno... I have a classical playlist somewhere though :)

I was amazed they could get away with a song encouraging listeners to feed animals at the zoo!

 

I'm listening to Marin Marais (1656-1728) music for viola da gamba performed by the Palladian Ensemble.

This is my favourite Bowie track. Fantastic lead guitar, and great vocal of course. (It's "Stay" from Station to Station.)

Hi jessica -

the forum seems to have developed the ability to do so automatically after an upgrade - prior to that, ixnay...

 

easiest way is to browse to the youtube vid you want then right click copy the 'http' address at the top taskbar and copy...

 

paste that in while you're writing your post and it'll come up embedded

Brilliant :thumbs:

 

I guess my favourite Bowie song is one of the following depending on my mood ;) Sorrow, Starman, Sound and Vision and Rock n Roll Suicide - there are loads others I love but these 4 would be my top picks every time - along with some typicals like life on mars, space oddity, ziggy stardust, oh! you pretty things :D I could go on forever - basically not a proper die hard Bowie fan but am pretty close :notworthy:

OMG that first one is bad :lol: I'm not gonna slag you off though - we all have different preferences :wacko: when I'm feeling in the right mood I play absolute beginners - which not many people I've met like for some reason :P

 

Never heard the second song before - and even thought not technically Bowie - it made me laugh the whole way through - I'm still grinning about it now :D good one :thumbs:

 

Let's dance :dance:

I thought Perfect Day was about heroin.

 

Nope! It's about an obsessed stalker following a woman all day, apparently... All that 'I'm glad I spent it with you' is about him watching from a distance... adds a whole different meaning to that line 'and later when it get's dark WE go home.' Sting tried the same thing with 'every breath you take', but it's nowhere near as accomplished.

 

Like many garjuss songs (strangler's 'golden brown', Spritualized's 'think I'm in love' - both drug songs) it's a horrid juxtaposition when you find out! :lol:

 

Anyhoo - I heard this in the background of some TV prog tonight.. haven't heard or thought of it in years, but think I'll be digging my 'best of XTC' cd out for the next few days... anyone who doesn't smile at the detuned 'toy' guitar on the chorus (years ahead of the Gorrillas!) deserves to be miserable!

I thought Perfect Day was about heroin.

It was used in the film 'trainspotting' which might be why you thought that? It's the main reason for my limited listening to the song to be honest cuz I see ewan mcgregor sinking into the floor, and then every scene thereafter syching in with the relevant bits of the song - its so bad that I even hear the nurse going "wake up, wake up" slap slap slap :lol: and simultaneously :wallbash:

 

I never knew about the whole stalker story thing, but it makes no difference to me - connotations of songs sometimes effect perception and sometimes not - I still love golden brown as track to listen to - it really lifts my mood - when I'm in the right mood - I think it's the repetitive riff going through it ;)

Nope, it wasn't the 'stalky' aspect of perfect Day that ruined it for me (but maybe we wouldn't have chosen it for that reason, had e known then, as our wedding dance song), it definitely was the BBC single and it's overkill! It's more a case of 'minor disappointment, iykwim, where you'd like to give the composer a slap on the wrist...

It's like eight ball by Underworld. Pretty obvious from the title really once I found out - Duh - but I always thought the last line was 'that great stuff...makes me feel...happy...' and a reference to being high on life and people watching. Of course, it's 'white stuff' :angry::lol:

 

Still an absolutely garjuss track - one of my dessert island discs for sure - but i do wish it was about being high on life and people watching :wub:
