Hi Greentea, I have read messages from a few members with similar view points to yours. They seem to be what is loosely termed mild Aspie cases.

I've heard that accountancy is a good job for someone with aspergers/autism. Is this true? If so, what would I need to study this at home before I start an actual course?

I am a very recently self diagnosed Aspie but I seem to find consistent statements that Aspies are 'generally' at average or above average intelligence AND that many of the most famous creative geniuses seem to have exhibited some or many AS traits. I happen to have an IQ score in the top 2% and am ...

I was surprised to hear that 'putting up with me' is not what he has to do but that he thought I might find it hard to be sitting across the tabl...

I do have mixed feelings about my new discovery. I am not alone anymore but there are 'a few' :lol: areas of social intera...
