I like to rub the smooth skin on my knuckles, and soft things like my blanket, against my lips.

I like dogs a lot; Maybe a little too much. I think this is related to stimming as the dog's soft fur is nice to touch. I'm really fascinated in watching them and if I see a dog in public I become completely fixated on observing and/or petting the dog. How much do you like dogs? Are you like this wh...

My memory is usually excellent, but when it comes to people I usually forget things about them. I can ask them something about their life, and forget within the space of a day. Does this happen with you too?

Recently I got a referral from my doctor to be tested for Autism/Asperger's. The first appointment is going to be in a few weeks, and I don't really know what I'm going to say :oops: I'm not good with thinking of things to talk about with people and my mind can go completely blank under the pressure...

(...) Me too; I'm extremely good at where someone is in the house by the subtle sounds of their steps/movements. Do you know how autism fits into not being able to understand people? The lack/impaired filter seem to be responsible for this, at least in my case. NT brain tends to automatically assig...

I usually can understand the written form unless I am not focused enough and my mind wanders around (then, after a while I realize I read something and have no idea what it was about) or someone speaks to me when I try to read (the spoken and written sentences mix and weird things come out). If the...

Yeah, it's annoying. They usually get really annoyed too and act like you're an idiot.

When I'm reading what someone has written, I often cannot understand what they are saying. I can read the individual words just fine, but it just looks like a jumble of random phrases until I read it over and over to process what it means. Sometimes I can't ever figure out what it means. When I hear...

Many times when I see an image of something online, I can't even figure out what I am looking at. Usually it takes me about 30-60 seconds to figure out what it is, but sometimes it still just looks like a bunch of weird shapes. What is the reason for this?

Can I ask your age and how you believe a diagnosis will be of benefit to you? Just piece of mind in a way? I'm 17. Getting a diagnosis would give me peace of mind, yes. Of course learning that I may have asperger's already feels like that to a degree, but a diagnosis would remove any doubt and give...

I have been researching the symptoms of autism for months now and I am sure that I have Asperger syndrome. I have so many of the symptoms that the evidence is astounding. I have brought it up with my parents as I want to be diagnosed, but they don't believe me. They say that if I really had it I wou...

I'm a self-diagnosed aspie and I was wondering what other people's reasons were for not being professionally diagnosed yet.
