Anxiety/​depression/​ADHD/​autism/​bipolar & other neurodivergences on MeFi

If you are neurodivergent, how does MetaFilter affect you, and how does your neurodivergence affect your participation in and use of MetaFilter? How could MetaFiter -- technologically and socially -- better accommodate your neurodivergence? [more inside]

How about a Parenting & Kids Category on AskMeFi?

I've always felt that there is a category missing on AskMeFi. There are so many AskMe posts related to children, parenting, babies, etc - that I really think there should be some kind of all encompassing category for it. I've thought about this for a long time, but today is the day I finally speak up. What do you think? [more inside]

Ask Mefi calming description of going to a shop or office

I remember an ask metafilter answer that I'm trying to find - it featured the asker having anxiety about visiting a shop or office, and wanted to know what it was going to be like. The answerer wrote a very long, detailed response about what the asker might experience - such as "you will stand in line probably for x minutes, then be called to the front where you need to say 'I'm here fore xyz' and present such and such paperwork." Something along those lines! Very grateful if anyone else remembers this.

I Need a Buddy

My question is a two parter. I spend way too much time surfing the net, and sometimes come up on "stuff" that I think might make a good post here, but because I am fairly new by Metafilter standards, I am not sure it would be a good post. Is there a way for me to "unofficially" run my thoughts through someone PRE-post? I would rather not be humiliated publicly, which is why I ask. Secondly, even if I was feeling up for a good potential whipping on any given day, I am pretty bad with the technical aspects here. I would really do so much better if I had some one on one help.

I find all of these end of the world FPP's curious.

I find all of these end of the world FPP's curious. We had this excellent one about the film Threads on Dec. 21st and this other about a new film called Ever Since the World Ended from Nov. 14th and of course the one about the game DEFCON from Oct. 2nd.

I wjust learned this was addressed on Metatalk back in March of last year. (Please feel free to remove this if it is considered an un-necessary duplicate), but I thought it would be interesting to ask mefites what s going on? Why are we averaging one FPP per month in the last four months? Is it some sort of generalized abstract fear, is the much touted "hive mind" responding to feeling the second hand of the doomsday clock moving closer to midnight or do people naturally turn to apocalyptic movies, books (and now video games) in times of uncertainty?
