      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

are you happy with that dale?

 

people who usually don't know themselves deciding for you?

 

i think i mentioned,

 

after two years of waiting, i finally got one of them, to hear me out and decide.

 

i found Barbara very in credulous

 

she'd turn up to talks with me with baby sick all over her clothes. i found myself doubting her credibility.

 

i hope things are better these days? with these folks who do diagnosis.

u guess, so i'm just saying dale,

 

no one can say for you. no one knows.

 

all that matters is you know, you decide.

 

you won't get benefits etc. but decide for yourself yeah?

 

the only other alternate is leaving it to people to decide, who aint got your interests at heart. they are on a budget, so their thoughts aren't cognitive or anything to do with anything real.

if you end up wishing having some stupid looser woman decide for you?

 

I.e. a little stupid girl who only got a 2/1?

 

but or someone reason decided she is qualified to to tell you stuff?

 

most of us just don't listen to that sort.

 

to us they have wasted 5 years of their life. no one will listen to them. little stupid university Bundy idiots.

 

most of us, listen to those who were their, felt the pain. etc. we ignore those stupid little university girls.

The mods here tend to be quite fair, and hands off as we've had bad experiences with people gaslighting other forum members to create needless conflict.

 

Insulting them for no reason is a bit rude.

That sounds fair enough Matzo on your 1111th post. (I have a thing about 'unusual' numbers, not to mention cute avatars!) :balloon:

Sorry Dale, your thread seems to have been hijacked somewhat. I'm not sure what the score means, but the main thing is that you are happy with the assessment.

Was it an ADOS test, Dale? I had mine today - not sure how it went, but he's arranging for me to see a psychologist next.

that night was a bad night for me .

 

sorry if I blathered on a bit.

 

I'm now talking about the people who have to wait two years to get assessed,

 

and i was talking about the people who do that for folks (in real life)..

 

I can see my calling them "mods" could of caused some confusion. I mean the idiot kiddie shrinks from real life.. not the helpers on here.

 

with the best world in the world, I've noticed over the last 20-30 years, they keep changing their views.

 

I've noticed.. 30 years ago they say one thing, 20 years ago they say another, 10 years ago they've completely changed yet again.

 

I just have lack of confidence in what the so called professionals "say"

 

there system of scoring aspergers/ autism points means nothing to me.. I've seen em change it ever month, usually so government doesn't have to pay?

 

my call on it, is, I would only trust a dignasis by someone who has the condition themselves.

 

it is only then you'll get a fair assessment.

 

so in reply to your question. scoring 13 means nothing.

 

talk to a proper aspie/ autistic person who aint worried about government spending, and they will be more lightly to give you a proper answer.

 

for example, if I was asking you the questions,

 

I would ask, 1) have you ever upset people and never knew why?

 

2) have you ever found the only people who seem to like you seem odd themselves?

 

3) have you even done something that is really nice and kind... and yet had people hate you for it? (i.e. because they aren't nice and aren't kind? and hate you cause you did it and they didn't?)

 

 

those are the sorts of questions i'd ask.

 

I reckon the government should elect a group of people, who are aspergers/ autistic to decide, and then you'd get a fair disagnisis.

 

I mean it's only Nt's who'd invent a point system? and they aint got no clue.
