    My road to success (Moving Update 2)

    This journal keeps being on the first page, and even though I really don't agree with it even been allowed being what it is in a forum like this, I have been reading the last pages but didn't want to write anything. However, being a psychiatrist, I just want to give my 2 cents about this, since this is not really the case any more. ADHD, dyslexia and intellectual disability can easily be examined and diagnosed nowadays in adults. All it takes is an experienced team consisting of a psychiatrist and a psychologist, a couple of tests, a good clinical examination and a thorough history taking and here you have it. It's really not rocket science. ADHD in adults is nothing more than a number of specific criteria consisting of core symptoms that have been present from school age throughout adulthood that cause a significant clinical impairment in at least two different settings (social life, work, school etc). Similar impairments can be caused by even mild intellectual disability or autism spectrum disorders, but they are different conditions (that can however co-exist). I am not saying that any of these is the case here - that would be absurd to say as a professional - but I do insist that such an assessment is not rocket science and it would take an extreme case to have 50 different doctors rubbing their heads.

    Indirectly silver age related, BUT cool nevertheless. Have you guys seen the trailer of the Far from Home Spidey movie? It included some Easter eggs, with direct reference to ASM 4, ASM 28 and ASM 212 - the first appearances of Sandman, Molten Man and Hydro-Man. Cool, cool and cool.

    I think I posted this before. All of my Romita issues are raw and I love them.

    By the way, I was SO stoked to see the trailer of the Far from Home today. Mysterio looks AWESOME.

    Love it! Just letting you know - as the random fact of the day - that I have been looking for a nice looking #15 preferably in CGC 8.0 for some time now.

    You guys just made my task to find a #10 a bit more obsessive compulsive. Anyone has a 7.5-8.0 with "L" for sale?

    It wasn't a long time ago I posted this again, but why not? This is my favourite 8.0 of my collection. I just love the colour palette of this cover, they really pop out. And by the way your guys dedication to consistency has been inspirational. I unfortunately don't remember which member of the forums here actually advised me to build my ASM run around my copy of #1, the only one I had back then (that it's a 7.5) but it was such a good advice. I don't stick exclusively to 7.5s, but I don't go below that (or over 8.5) for my Ditko run. I think 7.5 - 8.5 is a pretty thin span anyway that makes it a tad easier but challenging enough for me. It also fits my budget to the point that I can't go and buy them all at once, but allows me to feed the compulsion often enough to the point that I don't get bored.
  11. Within 6 weeks it arrived from Sweden to the US, got pressed, submitted to CGC and then back to my press guy. It was submitted through the express tier but I was impressed by the turn around time myself, since it was also Christmas and everything in between.
  12. Indeed, thanks. I was counting and hoping for a 9.0, so that extra 0.2 was a nice surprise.
  13. Soooo.... The book was cleaned and pressed, submitted to CGC and just received the verdict. And honestly, I couldn't be happier. This will be definitely be my keeper.
