    medication that helps with executive functioning

    Hi :) I've been coming to the realization that much of my mental health struggles (depression and anxiety throughout my life) comes mostly from issues relating to executive functioning, obsessive thinking after social interactions and low self-esteem.

    Removing the mask to try and find yourself...how do you do it?

    I was diagnosed this year in my 30s with ASD/Asperger's.

    Hi there Community, So, yesterday and during the whole night I got a really bad case of not-so-complete shutdown. I'm sure many of you know the feeling.

    Exhaustion from every day activities

    For a long time I thought that this was something that generally everyone felt, or that yes, I'm more tired than everyone, but I could attribute it to bad health. I'm a rather healthy person though, and have been tested for things like diabetes and even cancer, anything that would explain my...
