Concerns of the reddit autism forum
A common concern parents or older adults may have about their children or younger adults accessing forums for anxiety or similar wellness help, such as the reddit autism forum is that there is no guarantee that anyone will be reasonably able to police or monitor all the advice, comments and guidance given on the reddit autism forum.
So how can anyone possibly ensure the quality of advice given on the reddit autism community forum is actually good advice or who ensures it isn’t advice that will not bring about negative consequences to the person receiving the advice.
These are the concerns many people may face when considering seeking help through online sources but in most cases, they are forced to seek this help as they have no other option.
To the credit of the reddit autism forum, most of the comments there appear to be good advice from well-meaning individuals who seem to have helped those who have sought out advice for whatever reason.
Most of those giving the advice aren’t medical professionals and this is clear to most of the people seeking advice but in the case where it is not clear and a user takes the advice of a reddit autism forum member and experiences negative consequences or maybe even death then who is to blame for such a situation? The reddit autism forum member, the memeber seeking advice or Reddit?
What’s even worse is that there are so many people who have reported very difficult issues such as planning to take their lives or have made comments which indicate they may be self-harming themselves or considering this as an option. This sort of people who may be seeking help from the reddit autism forum are the ones who are most at risk and greater care will need to be taken to identify them and point them to the direction of suitable help.
But for now, the reddit autism forum seems to be a great place for those who have no other option but to seek advice from peers and strangers. In truth, for many where the mental health services don’t function as they should, the reddit autism forum is the saving grace they have been praying for.
Sample of questions from the reddit autism forum
“ Hello there.
My name is MB *((he/him/his pronouns)), and I need some advice. I’m posting this on the autistic reddit because I’m in the process of being diagnosed, and I wanted to ask people who maybe get how all this feels.
There’s a girl I really, really like. We met at an event about a month ago, in a really intense way. It was a celebration at a park with lots of people and vendors and such. There was this circle of people playing instruments, mostly drums, and it was open to whoever wanted to join. I got up the courage after a gentleman kept politely asking if I wanted to try, and borrowed a drum! I played for the first time ever!! Now, this girl was sitting next to me the whole time, and during the drumming we sort of started weaving back and forth over who was following the other for the beat! It was incredible. We kept exchanging these glances, and it made me feel really nice!
After the drum circle ended, we introduced ourselves and actually talked for a long while before exchanging contact info and parting. I realized then that I had a mildly terrifying crush on her. Terrifying to me. I don’t want to mess anything up, or overstep my bounds, or be weird.
We’ve chatted a few times over text since then, and we hung out again this past Saturday at a similar festival to the first. This was also an amazing experience, and I’m made very….fluttery by her. I feel like I’m back in middle school, honestly. It’s weird.
We’re back to texting for communication now. The problem is that I want to keep talking to her a bunch, and have a lot of nice conversations like we had in person, but I don’t want to seem….overbearing. I wanna know so many things, and I want to talk to her so much. I don’t want to keep texting her a lot every day though. I’m afraid she’ll be put off. Or that she’s too busy. She’s only texted me first once, all the other times I texted her first. I know she likes me though, at least a little bit.
So… my question:
How do I keep having conversations without spamming her, and without seeming really desperate? Does anyone have any advice??
