Well, Hello!

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.


Re:Well, Hello!



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.


Re:Well, Hello!



Hello Nicole.

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.

Hi Nicole, welcome to teenconnect
I'm Lindsay i'm pretty much a movie fanatic as far as my interests, i also like to read etc.
i have a few friends that are autistic one of them i met in middle school she just found out last year.
what is your favorite book,movie?


Re:Well, Hello!



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!



I like classic rock and hard rock mostly but the occasion classic rap is played but I don't listen to it that much im going to the beach boys concert in June as a part of my birthday what kind of horror stories do you like Sara ive read quite a few lately


Re:Well, Hello!

Re:Well, Hello!

Re:Well, Hello!



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!



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!



I do too


Re:Well, Hello!



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!



How badly injured was he?


Re:Well, Hello!



I am not sure, but I know he is fine now. Couldn't have been anything permanent.

Enjoy your day!

Re:Well, Hello!



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


Re:Well, Hello!



cool i've seen the movie for those i love Jack Nicholson in the Shining he plays the role wonderfully..

"All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy; Redrum" :)


Re:Well, Hello!



"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!



Cool!


Re:Well, Hello!



Interesting , I wonder if Misery was shot in that same area. It has some uncanny similarities to the shinings setting


Re:Well, Hello!



I haven't seen either movie.
