I’ve started a youtube channel today and have gotten some very nice feed backs. This makes me think of making other videos on different topics. I wonder if there are topics that any one of you would be interested in? It can be anything dating or relationship-related or a more general autism related topic.
Any ideas?19/04/2020 at 8:03 pm #9631WendinParticipant
Good job, Douwe. It is a wonderful video.
I am interested in knowing…
How Aspies (who are over 30) deal with their social struggle in general. For example, if you can share some coping strategies or something you have learnt from others.
How to survive and thrive in a foreign land when you are on the Autism spectrum.
How to maintain mental health when the outside world feels too noisy and overwhelming19/04/2020 at 8:44 pm #9632
Those are very nice points! Thank you. I can talk about these points by experience. I have some coping strategies for the last one too but they only extend the exposure tolerance. There is however always a point where the situation gets too overwhelming. But lasting longer is already a big plus. I can already tell that it is fairly simple. Noise canceling head phones and 4 supplements that help the dopamine levels, lower anxiety and heal the inflammation of the amygdala. L-Theanine, Butyric Acid, St. Johns wort (only when you aren’t asthmatic or on oral contraceptives) and Lactobacillus Reuteri. But I can talk more about that too. It helps really a lot. Also turmeric or other supplements that fight inflammations are helpful in situations that are overwhelming. This because of the amygdala and other brain regions being inflamed and extra sensitive. Another thing that helps is a pet or a lovely human that gives love… Oxytocin is one of the biggest healers… But those are all things that I can go into as youtube topics
Thanks again! D20/04/2020 at 2:05 am #9635AnonymousInactive

Have you heard of Aspie World? He’s a British Aspie Youtuber who covers a plethora of Aspie issues. You may want to collaborate with him20/04/2020 at 7:51 pm #9640
Thank you Joshua for your great ideas. All feel very important to me. So I really appreciate your input.
I’ve seen Aspie World. He indeed does a very good job. I first have to see if I can establish something myself but I am not against any kind of collaboration if it can help more people that way.
