    Looks yummy! I see you enjoy cooking and baking - that's great! Is it a rather new hobby or you've been doing it longtime already?
  3. So... news from my friend: Now she thinks less and less that her son might have autism. And she finally described some more things to me and it really doesn't sound like it. I don't know why she even got the idea that it might be it. Only because he seems to "live in his own world", doesn't communicate much (but can, just isn't interested) and doesn't socialise with other children. But it's all that bears any ressemblance to autism. She also sometimes mentions (to me) that he behaves "like mad", but I have no idea what it means and it only makes me sad that she's so judgemental . I know it's
  4. Thank you, @geronimo! Yes, it's very helpful; there are good guides and it also motivated me to start searching and I have found many interesting things (not only in English). I'm going to send it all to her.
  5. I have a friend who thinks her 4-year old has Asperger's and she's very desperate, helpless about his behaviour. I would like to send her links to some good on-line peer-support forums for such parents and some helpful YouTube videos about better understanding and parenting such children. But I don't have (at least for now) much time to check sufficiently what is really "good" / trustworthy / practical ... so I decided to find out if someone of you who read this forum has some knowledge about such "resources". If you do, would you share them here, please? Thank you in advance.
  6. Happy Friday to you, too!
  7. Wow, great news, Beth!!! Fever and other flu-like symptoms, for 1-2 days.
  8. I post this for the plea in the end as well as an exemple of human incredible (?) stupidity which manifests itself even is such simple everyday things like preparing food and placing an order: https://www.vox.com/2020/11/21/21587723/coronavirus-covid-19-thanksgiving-holidays-canceled For instance: Besides the stupidity, the sense of 'entitlement' and the 'first-world' nature of these "problems" (of those customers) are so disgusting...
  9. My newest podcast discovery! For instance: Resilience: https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/w3csyv0l Why do we need to talk about men? https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/w3csyv0j Why are we shy? https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/w3csyv06 and many others: https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p00xtky9/episodes/downloads Enjoy!

    I'm sorry I made you worried . I promis that if I get COVID (or something else "like that"), I'll post about it here. So when I don't, it means I'm probably doing OK.

    I'm sorry for my very late reply. I haven't visited this site for some weeks. Not because of some particular reason; I just "haven't found the time"... (Even worse, I'm procrastinating with replying to e-mails even more that before...) BTW; I also think that being asleep, in the phase without dreams (they can be pretty 'exhausting' sometimes), is the best state I (and probably many others ) can be in. The lack of awareness, of anything, ... and without actually needing to undergo the (often ugly and painful) process of dying!
