    • Djokovic is back in the news - the BBC has cast doubts on the date of his covid test prior to arriving in Australia. They've done some clever research with serial numbers and QR codes but the Serbian public health authority isn't giving information.   And Nadal is a step closer to his 21st Grand Slam title, which would make him the first male player to reach that. He won't be able to compete in the French Open under France's current rules which require all sportspeople to be vaxxed.   Novak Djokovic: Doubts over timing of Covid test WWW.BBC.COM The BBC has uncovered fresh evidence questioning the timing of Novak Djokovic’s positive Covid test used to enter Australia.  
    • Hi   I could be wrong here so could @namedisplay please clarify if I am correct or completely wrong?   In your post#1 you mention that due to your health issues and your mental state at the time you rang the Training Room and was told it would cost and initial £200 and then £15 per month until you finished the course.   Then further in post#1 The Training Room told you you were not eligible for an extension because you hadn't completed enough of the course.   With the above I now refer Post#12 which mentions your circumstances are covered by 13 in the TTR Terms and Conditions.   What is mentioned above seems conflicting from TTR for the following:   1. IMO that money of £200 and then £15 per month (on top of original Course Fees) was them at that time agreeing to an extension as per 13 in TTR Terms and Conditions   2. Them stating you can't extend Course as not completed enough of Course is not in TTR Terms and Conditions (that I and others can see) (Note they could be referring to 15 in TTR Terms and Conditions)   Can you clarify the above and were you informed those extra costs were due to an extension of your Course.   Again I will ask did you provide the Training Room with Medical Evidence when you asked the above?   We also still need to see the Letter from Training Room Threatening Legal Action (fully redacted) which you still haven't posted?   You need to send The Training Room a Subject Access Request (SAR) asking for 'ALL DATA' that simple phrase means whatever format they hold that data in whether it be written, email, recorded phone calls etc.   They then have 30 Calendar Days to respond to your SAR Request and that Time Limit only starts once they have acknowledged your SAR Request. They can extend that Time Limit if they need to prove identity before actioning the SAR Request so be aware of that.   A SAR Request is now FREE and make sure you get Free Proof of Posting from the Post Office     Your right of access ICO.ORG.UK   Can you please make sure you answer the questions asked of Caggers to assist you    
    • I've been trying to resolve a issue with 8 PCN issued by Tyne Tunnel 2 (tt2.co.uk). Tyne Tunnel 2 is a gated toll charged tunnel to cross the River Tyne in Newcastle. We moved in recently so all a bit new to us. My dad had been using the tunnel about twice a week and he had been paying cash for the toll fee at the booths. At some point in November 2021 they had done some constructions where the gates had been closed and payments had transitioned to online methods. My dad had been oblivious to this and been on his merry way multiple times thinking that he doesn't need to pay. So he received the first PCN some where end of November which had been issue on the 26th after which point I went on alert and sorted out the online accounts and such. However the current total of fines has amounted to £255.20 and I have appealed explaining that soon as the letters were received we have resolved the issue but they insist on us paying 8 PCN. I feel it's unfair that the fine is for the same offence which we couldn't have rectified or known until we received the first PCN letter and after the first PCN we have rectified it so feel they are being bit draconic. Any advice on this matter? 
    • No need to apologise! I am extremely grateful for both your help   Gosh very good attention to detail going on here   Great thank you, i will put them back as below   Good evening to you   DEFENCE   1.     The Defendant contends that the particulars of claim are vague and generic in nature. The Defendant accordingly sets out its case below and relies on CPR r 16.5 (3) in relation to any particular allegation to which a specific response has not been made.     2.     Paragraph 1 is noted. It is accepted I have in the past had agreements with Lloyds TSB. I do not recall the precise details or agreement nor the claimant either, having failed to provide an agreement/account number within its particulars of claim and have therefore sought verification from the claimant.   3.     Paragraph 2 is noted but until such time the claimant can clarify the agreement account number any breach has yet to be proven.      4.     I am unaware of any legal assignment or Notice of Assignment allegedly served by either the Claimant or Lloyds TSB pursuant to the Law of Property Act 1925.   5. Paragraph 3 is denied. I am unaware of any Notice of default served.   6.     It is denied with regards to the Defendant owing any monies to the Claimant. The Claimant has failed to provide any evidence of the Agreement/Assignment/Default notice or Termination requested by CPR 31. 14.    Therefore the Claimant is put to strict proof to: a) show how the Defendant has entered into an agreement ; and b) show how the Defendant has reached the amount claimed for; and c) Show or evidence a Default Notice /Notice of Sums in Arrears, d) show how the Claimant has the legal right, either under statute or equity to issue a claim;   7.     As per Civil Procedure Rule 16.5(4), it is expected that the Claimant prove the allegation that the money is owed.   8.     On the 5th of January 2022 I requested to The Claimants Solicitors, Mortimer Clarke by way of a CPR 31.14 copies of the documents referred to within the Claimants particulars to establish what the claim is for. Mortimer Clarke have failed to fulfil my CPR 31:14 request.   9.     On the 5th of January 2022 I made a section 78 legal request to the claimant for a copy of the Consumer Credit Agreement. The claimant has as of 27/01/22 failed to comply.   10.  By reason of the facts and matters set out above, it is denied that the Claimant is entitled to the relief claimed or any relief.

Hi, Jimmy, and welcome to the weird and wonderful world of autism!!!

 

As a parent of a child with Asperger's (which I'd say sounds more like you than "full-blown" autism), I can completely understand the feeling of relief to finally be able to put a name to whatever it was that made one feel and be different.

 

When you say pointers, do you mean discovering more about the condition? Maybe find like-minded people?

 

I suggest the first stop would be the National Autistic Society, they have helpsheets, info, links to local resources, etc... They also have a shop where you can buy books about autism, for children, for adults, for teachers, for parents, you name it. Books for help with relationship for the autistic 1/2 of the couple, but also for the non-autistic partner. It really depends on what you are looking for.

 

If money is tight, then googling and clicking from site to site, trawling the web, will take you on a more random journey where you can discover more until you've had your fill.

 

Any questions, ask away, if I know the answer, I will do my best to answer. :-)

Yes, it's called High Functioning autism, HFA for short, and the name is interchangeable with Asperger's Syndrome, some people are more comfortable with 1 term, sme with the other... another favorite is PDD-NOS: Pervasive Development Disorder - Not Otherwise Specified, which is a catch-all diagnosis when they're not sure what the hell is wrong with you, they're pretty sure you're on the spectrum but don't want to commit themselves. ;-)

 

Anyway... That thing you describe, and I don't know the name either, but it is part of something quite common with ASD. Some people will see music notes as colours for example, or describe tastes in terms of textures etc...

 

The characteristic which goes through the whole spectrum is how important it is for ASD people to rely on visual cues. I could give you a whole load of information on hypo and hypersensitivity and how it affects people, but I don't want to overload you and it's probably best to go bit by bit.

 

I personally would recommend 2 books to start with: "Asperger's sYndrome, a guide for parents and professionals" by Tony Atwood, because it has a wonderfully upbeat attitude towards AS, which is a breath of fresh air, and "Martian in the playground" by Clare Sainsburys, herself AS, and teacher at Oxford, which documents how AS people coped (or not, as was often the case) in school.

 

For you as an adult, it's more a voyage of discovery, a "oooh, so THAT's why I do that" kind of thing, because it is obvious that if you have gone undetected until now, you have found your coping mechanisms, which is great. On the other hand, if you have things which have been bugging you all your life and you thought there was nothing you could do about it, maybe finding out more will also show you some ways of coping better which you wouldn't have thought of. For example, most ASD pple benefit from having visual prompts, timetables etc to help them navigate through the day. For most ASD, the visual is the key to understanding. Even the highest functioning find they function better with visual help/prompts. If that's something you want to explore, you can easily find links on the Internet, the strict system is called PECS, but there are variations with cue cards etc... I'm sure you know all about your own routines, rituals etc, but at least now you don't have to feel you're being an awkward bugger because you like things a certain way, that is part of your genetic make-up. ;-)

 

As you can see, I am like an autism juke-box, you put 10p in and I'll go on and on, so if you need to talk... or write... well, you know what I mean... Talking of which, how are you with figures of speech? Do you take things literally or have you learned to deal with those? You know, things like "it's raining cats and dogs" or "I was so angry, I bit his head off"... Just so i know becauseI tend to use metaphors a lot, but can avoid that if it is difficult for you. Nothing wrong with that, by the way, again it's just neurological wiring. ;-)

 

Well, I'm heading for bed shortly, so I'll catch up with this thread tomorrow. Good night. :-)

Slightly off topic but this May im doing a 5K run for Autism, I kinda got conned into it haha . . im like out of breathe If I think about going up the stairs and gots me a beer belly and everything.

The story is my sister is a super fit freak, lol . . she is like managed diet and treadmill in living room and she is doing a race for life in May (she did it last year) and I was having a bit of banter about how she wouldnt stand a chance winning me cause im her big brother and she is LITTLE sister. So now things excalated and im entered and I got to win her (Im not deluded i know this is not possible but to finish would surprise her and everyone ) .

To go back on topic she has an Autistic son of 4 and helps out in loadsa things towards Autism, she goes to big conferences in London. On a good note it is good their is such an awareness of this now.

Thanks again so much. I have no real problem with 'cats and dogs' etc. I am away for a week from later this morning and will have no internet access, so please don't think I am ignoring you for that week.
Likewise, I am off to Venice on Wednesday and won't be around much, so catch up the week after! :-)

Ozzy, well done.

 

Can we sponsor you somewhere? Latty did it last year for the Breast Cancer one, DMD has posted for his, I'd love to do one that helps towards autism. Best thing is to start a new thread in the Bear Garden, with a link to where we can sponsor you online, and update the thread regularly, with what your goal is etc... ;-)

 

It's amazing really, when my son gt diagnosed I felt so isolated, like we were the only family affected... Now, as soon as the word gets mentioned, you find that virtually everyone knows someone on the spectrum one way or another... and those who don't actually probably do, just haven't realised it yet! LOL

 

Ozzy, your sister sounds wonderful, please giver her my regards from me. :-)

Thanks heaps for the support Bookie, I will get a thread going in the beer garden so as not to hijack Jimmys thread any longer lol.

However Im not sure I would be able to do a link or ask for sponsorships etc through this site without the site teams permission, ive never done anything like this before so not sure, dont want to get myself banned from here lol.

 

I really (my sister more than me ) understand the isolation and lack of knowledge dispair that comes with finding out your child is autistic... I know my sister first found out when he was about 2ish and she used to come visit me and say "im sure there is somthing wrong" and all family inc me would say "no he just a slow starter nothing wrong with him" etc . . then one day she had to tell us all he was autistic and best reaction from family is "are you sure he look ok to me" .. . It is difficult and it does come down to awareness. Hoever with the correct support and love for the child it can and does have a huge impact on their development. . ok over to beer garden we go for a continuation of my rant lolllll.

Hi jimmy

pleased to hear that you have finally been diagnosed correctly good for you now you can happily do some research and happy reading it will be. As bookworm as said there will be alot of things that you have done, said and thought that will make sense and will even make you laugh, because you will say "thats me":)

I have a daughter with Aspergers Syndrome & A.D.H.D (attention deficite hyperactivity dissorder) she was first diagnosed aged 8yrs and is now 21yrs and is still set in her daily routines, certain materials she will not wear, food she will not eat because of the texture, airfresheners she will not buy because of the smell and the majority of her clothes are black, white, silver or grey.

I know you have said that you are in receipt of dla if you dont mind me saying please contact them and let them know what your gp has diagnosed and always put the aspergers syndrome down first that is what my daughters specialist told us to do, as they maybe medication for any underlying conditions but there is NO medication for Autisim.

I could tell you many a story that would make you laugh at some of the antics she used to get up to when she was younger, oh hey happy childhood memories:D

wishing you all the best
