Re: Split: Medicine: Good or Bad?

Some can, but asthma is not one of them.

Nor is autism, there is no cure for either.

I suspect you weren't severely autistic, and there have been rare cases of mild autism being recovered from.

Asthma on the other hand, never really goes away, and from the way you mention it, you didn't have severe enough asthma to require an inhaler.

So really, you are making mountains out of molehills with your blanket statements.

He misused mushrooms - that wasn't everything he used. They merely changed his state and then the other drugs took care of it.

Re: Split: Medicine: Good or Bad?

generally, medicine is a good thing, if you use it the way you're supposed too.

I'd like to see some logical reason why it would be otherwise.

Re: Split: Medicine: Good or Bad?

Interesting to say, in this day and age in the developed countries of the world, we cannot escape from medication alone.

We need it to be immune to those deadly ones that kill infants and young children.

And for us that need medication to live, I greatly appreciate the existence of medication because out loved ones or us could as well be long gone dead by now.

Re: Split: Medicine: Good or Bad?

This is a sensitive subject for me, and I didn't want this thread to be split, thanks.

If I'm just going to be called stupid then there's no reason to stick around here.

Just don't forget to have the last laugh.

Severe Autism, too.

Autism is a developmental delay, not a complete stop.

So it's pretty much standard that people's autism will improve over time.

Now, complete recovery is somewhat rare, but recovery to the point where you can cope with society isn't all that uncommon.

Re: Split: Medicine: Good or Bad?

Really easy to find information on prognosis regarding Autism,

There is no known cure. Children recover occasionally, so that they lose their diagnosis of ASD; this occurs sometimes after intensive treatment and sometimes not. It is not known how often recovery happens; reported rates in unselected samples of children with ASD have ranged from 3% to 25%. Most children with autism lack social support, meaningful relationships, future employment opportunities or self-determination. Although core difficulties remain, symptoms often become less severe in later childhood.

Few high-quality studies address long-term prognosis. Some adults show modest improvement in communication skills, but a few decline; no study has focused on autism after midlife. Acquiring language before age six, having an IQ above 50, and having a marketable skill all predict better outcomes; independent living is unlikely with severe autism. A 2004 British study of 68 adults who were diagnosed before 1980 as autistic children with IQ above 50 found that 12% achieved a high level of independence as adults, 10% had some friends and were generally in work but required some support, 19% had some independence but were generally living at home and needed considerable support and supervision in daily living, 46% needed specialist residential provision from facilities specializing in ASD with a high level of support and very limited autonomy, and 12% needed high-level hospital care.

A 2005 Swedish study of 78 adults that did not exclude low IQ found worse prognosis; for example, only 4% achieved independence. A 2008 Canadian study of 48 young adults diagnosed with ASD as preschoolers found outcomes ranging through poor (46%), fair (32%), good (17%), and very good (4%); 56% of these young adults had been employed at some point during their lives, mostly in volunteer, sheltered or part time work. Changes in diagnostic practice and increased availability of effective early intervention make it unclear whether these findings can be generalized to recently diagnosed children.
