    I'm still working out the most tactful way of doing it.
    Yeah, I guess it'll be a bit difficult/awkward whichever way :/

    I just took an online test and I might have autism ... does anyone know anything about autism - all I know is that most maths olympiads have it and I'm not really very good at maths even though I do enjoy it. :confused:

    Never trust an online test.

    And not all maths geeks are on the autistic spectrum, and not all autistic people like maths.

    the autistic spectrum covers a massive wide range of people, some high functioning "normal" people, down to some people that cant/wont talk, are wheelchair bound and generally cant do much. So i really wouldnt worry, if you are concerned though, perhaps speak to someone at school or uni or maybe ask your dr how you can get tested properly.

    The thing is I'm already mentally ill so I think it has something to do with it. I mean I might not have autism and just show signs of it because of my mental state.

    What is saying "im autistic"? Like what traits do you have?

    I'm very anti - social, I'm pretty much reclusive, I don't like meeting new people, I don't know how to deal with new situations - I don't know really I just scored high on the test.
    The test said people with autism always score above 30 - I scored 36.
    I'm not sure really.

    I feel completely rubbish Also got a uni interview and I just can't seem to make myself care, I'd actually rather be stupidly anxious as at least then I feel like it's maybe justified- as it is just worried because I'm not worried and haven't done anything for it and urgh

    Hope people are ok :grouphugs:

    well for one as Panda said it's never wise to trust an online test alone, but if you are concerned then ask your GP as they can arrange a test also the autistic spectrum is quite wide, a lot of the people you are thinking of will be at one end of the scale, you can easily be on the spectrum without having those exact traits, I have mild aspergers myself, but I am not great at maths (im okay at it but not at the level of the people you are thinking of).

    Thanks Might try and read through something on the train up there, or I could just sleep... It's only an hour anyway.
    Glad you're ok! Yeah same on the sleep front, got a a couple of hours though. Good about your mum's, and the rugby! I need to remember to watch it this week, forgot last time as my dad was away

    Question: Has anyone experienced more frequent urination (particularly at night) when on antidepressants? I I've tried looking it up but not found anything. I've been on the antidepressants for over a month and this has began to happen within the last two/three weeks, and that's the only major change I can think of.


    Sending hugs to all that need it. The last week has been pretty good for me up until yesterday, but family arguments are sending me back on the downward spiral.
    Yes but it was because they gave me a dry mouth so I was drinking more. Perhaps this is the case for you. Sometimes it's quite subtle and you might not really notice it.

    Well my thread in MH section re: victim mentality is quite brutal but I can't say I'm surprised, nor can I say they're speaking out of line or being unreasonable.
