I'm now 36 and have been gaming ever since my parent bought me a rubber keyed spectrum 48k. Several of my colleagues at work still game, who are pretty much in the same age range. I do go through phases of unhealthily long gaming sessions, especially when I get stuck into a rpg and want to get it fi...

Thank you to everyone for taking the time to reply.

I have contacted the psychologist to se...

Also have had an unofficial diagnosis of Hypermobility Syndrome, have had several dislocations and sublux...

I manage to fit in reasonably well by "faking normal". I have a job and I'm good at it, and generally people can't tell unless they spend a lot of time with me. Of course when someone really gets to know me it's harder to fake, and my family is well aware of my being an Aspie because I don't fake i...
