    @welcomesodoing – I’ve got no control of the space youtube provides for comments. Sorry.

    BTW, I wish we had more space to write at youtube… as well as have paragraps, so things aren’t bunched up! Oh well, an autistic concern that I’m sure no one else is bothered by. HP.

    A quick note, on the latest entry (not this one): THANK YOU! for being SUCH an active & organizing advocate. …NEway, I keep coming back to this entry, it is one of the most helpful 2date. Something of huge interest/help 4a possible future topic?: meditation and eastern therapies/Thought. Being HFA, that stuff took me from zero coping/interacting to at least back2 uni! In psych; hopefully ’4my people’.
    Have been emailing this site2 lots of academics around Australia. Thanks again.

    I wonder if these “doctors’ would last one day with extreme cases of autism. It’s amazing to me all the “professionals” who talk and talk and talk about autism but when have they EVER spent more than a “session” or few hours with autistic people?

    In 1985 this man wrongly diagnosed me with schizophrenia, and, in my opinion, this was in order to cover up his own negligent care whilst I was an in-patient at Withington Hospital Mother and Baby Unit.
