Well, i can't help that. Feel free to tell me whatever. Note that i am bnot a doctor, so i can't help you with your emotions and that kind of thing.

Hi Nicole. I am autistic too. I talk obsessively about whatever, roller coasters the most. I am obsessed with roller coasters and skydiving. I haven't ben diagnosed with Autism, but I have many symptoms.

Well, hello to you also. Well, you should check to see if you have Autism, rather than stating ot me that you are Autistic. i hope that you still have my email address from the last few posts.

I take it from your username that you like to read? I'm an avid reader myself. In my spair time I read medical text, anything I can get my hands on. As to Sarah's self-diagnosis, She may be correct. I diagnosed myself with a psychological disorder and a physical disorder, (separate of each other) and was correct on both accounts. Although, I'm 100% certain that my knowledge within the medical field is greater then hers. To her credit though, from reading her posts I have noticed symptoms of autism as well as a few other things. I look forward to corasponding with you.

Re:Well, Hello!Posted by Thrill Monster on 5/10/2011 at 11:23 PM
I read every day too. I mostly read about guide dogs, or I read horror stories. And I love horror movies. Neuron, I am sure you probably know more than I do about medical stuff. I read books a lot about mental disorders such as depression, ADHD, ADD, and Autism. Nicole, what kind of music do you like? I like to listen to rap, rnb, hip-hop, and anything else.
Re:Well, Hello!Posted by Wingman on 5/10/2011 at 11:43 PM

And, you know Stephen King has a visual impairment...
Re:Well, Hello!Posted by Wingman on 5/11/2011 at 4:42 PM
Wow I didn't know that thanks Joe
I only knew of a few writers for tv
You really do learn something new everyday
Re:Well, Hello!Posted by Thrill Monster on 5/11/2011 at 11:31 PM
I didn't know that either. It seems like visually impaired people can visualize horror scenes in their heads better than some sighted people.I do anyway. lol
Re:Well, Hello!Posted by Wingman on 5/12/2011 at 12:24 AM
I do too
Re:Well, Hello!Posted by Joe S on 5/12/2011 at 7:55 AM
I believe he has Macular Degeneration or something similar. He rarely speaks of it. He was crossing a street over a decade ago and was hit by a car. It was mentioned back then. He has low vision, I guess.
A friend met him years ago and they spoke about my visual impairment. He wrote me a note and such, very nice.
There is a ton of successful persons with visual impairments out there.
Have a great day!
Re:Well, Hello!Posted by Thrill Monster on 5/12/2011 at 11:12 AM
How badly injured was he?
Re:Well, Hello!Posted by Joe S on 5/12/2011 at 11:22 AM
I am not sure, but I know he is fine now. Couldn't have been anything permanent.
Enjoy your day!
Re:Well, Hello!Posted by Thrill Monster on 5/12/2011 at 2:27 PM
I'm glad to hear that. You have a good day too!

Hi! by the way if you do end up reading any Stephen King books The Shining and Salems Lot are awesome choices.

"All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy; Redrum" :)
Re:Well, Hello!Posted by Joe S on 5/17/2011 at 2:50 PM
"The Shining" mini series version was filmed at The Stanley Hotel in Estes Park, Colorado. They have some memorabilia and such there. Neat place. I believe the actual film was mostly filmed in England. Can't remember though.

Re:Well, Hello!Posted by Wingman on 5/18/2011 at 5:33 AM
Interesting , I wonder if Misery was shot in that same area. It has some uncanny similarities to the shinings setting
Re:Well, Hello!Posted by Thrill Monster on 7/14/2011 at 7:37 PM
I haven't seen either movie.
