I can't find any specific research about this. I want to know if there are specific mental health therapies for co-morbid MH issues, which either do not help people on the spectrum or can do more harm than good. I do not mean medication as that is a separarate discussion.
For instance, I understand CBT can be quite helpful if tailored to our neurology. But with CBT part of it involves facing up to the thing that causes you anxiety, and something like that could be incredibly traumatic for us.
Does anyone have a source I can access to find out more information?
I think co-morbid conditions are conditions which left unchecked will become also primary later on. So co-morbid is time by cause and effect. If a few of these co-morbid conditions add up to pathogenically primary, you are as good as dead,, by "complications".
I think co-morbid is just secondary genetic ladder rung weakness caused by the primary holding leg of the ladder rotting away slowly, so the rung is weakened as a secondary cause, until the whole ladder collaspes (dead).
If the hull is weak, the ship sinks as a whole, when the stress on the beam structure collaspes at shear point.
