As the mother of an autistic introvert who is deeply empathetic, I greatly appreciated Quiet ’s thoughtful debunking of the idea that extroverts care more about others than introverts. My own experience with Benj underscores Susan’s point that it is a heightened sensitivity to novelty or a high-reactive temperament—rather than lack of empathy or disinterest in connecting with others—that characterizes introverts and autistic people. My second son—a different kind of introvert, whose major challenges are shyness and intense social anxiety—has helped me see that introversion comes in many different guises. I look forward to supporting parents in helping their highly sensitive or high-reactive, shy, or reserved children become more comfortable in social settings, in the classroom, with public speaking, and with new experiences in general. And from introverted children to introverted parents and teachers: I co-parent with two introverts, my ex-husband and my current husband, both of whom are also introverted teachers (my ex at the college level, my husband as a public school music teacher). As a former college professor and a current teacher of adults and children alike, I’m here to support educators and offer insight, advice, and guidance for both teaching introverted children and teaching as an introvert.
Anabolic steroid implants are allowed for veterinary use. But if someone diverts this for use in humans, it will be deemed as a distribution of a Schedule III drug leading to prosecution. The law on trenbolone differs in other countries. For instance, in Canada it is a Schedule IV drug. In Canada, all anabolic steroids are classified as Schedule IV drugs. In the UK, anabolic steroids are classified as Class C substances. Their possession can lead to a 2 year jail term, while their production and supply can lead to a 14 year jail term. But many countries do not have strict laws. In some places, you can even buy it over the counter.
