I've always felt like this. Ditto, all the time, and quite excessively! And, sometimes my brain almost melts -- I even get mild headaches -- from all the effort I make trying to keep from being "found out" that I have no idea what somebody is talking about. Why, they might think I belong on a diffe...

... a massive fit ... screaming and crying "I can't take it anymore," and within about 2 seconds he started laughing hysterically and wanted to us to catch him while he ran upstairs. I've never seen anyone switch emotions so radically and so fast ... Overall, he's a happy child so I wonder if this ...

Only once did I ever truly think about committing suicide, but I have occasionally wondered whether I might ever end up having done it. In all kinds of situations that could be harmful to me or to just about anyone else nearby, I sometimes have to very carefully "freeze" for just a moment and be sur...

For myself, I have always been obsessed with detail in just about anything I ever do, but I have never really been stuck on just one thing for an extremely long time. I have always been into trying to figure out how things work, and I remember being absolutely fascinated with the workings of mechani...

Today I called a local mental-health center to see about an evaluation, and the woman on the phone asked me, "About what?" "Asperger's." "For who?" "For me." "Why do you think you have Asperger's?", she asked. I wanted to ask her why she thought I do not, or maybe I could have told her she would not...

Or, maybe try something like taking the numbers from the clock when you wake up in the morning and carrying them forward into the day while manipulating them to compute or analyze things like ounces of food for breakfast and allowing travel time to get to the bus stop while figuring ratios along the...

I can't even stand still in my living room for 3 seconds without feeling literally sick to my stomach, remembering how much I offended mom ... One of the very few things that can almost make me cry (and occasionally actually does) is the shame and remorse of *real* harms I have caused others over t...

What does dh mean? Same question here, and what about ds, Dx (diagnosed?), PDD-NOS and spectrum? I am very new to all of this. One of the things I have a lot of trouble with is communication ... Does this sound familiar to anybody? I do the kinds of things you have described. Sometimes I intentiona...

I can't really grasp that I got diagnosed. It must be a mistake. It can't be. I'm ''too normal''. Is it normal to go into major denial like this? I am presently self-diagnosed, and I plan to go see about an evaluation. However, I tend to think only we folks who actually *do* have problems ever both...

I really gotta get on meds. This sobriety is kicking my ass. That was one of the things that truly proved my alcoholism: I could no longer live *with* the alcohol, but neither could I live without it. Sufferingly sober, I had to have *something* to make me feel okay. Here is where I ended up: "Lack...

I thank you all for the warm welcome!

Another Aspie had told me about this site, and she and I have been talking a bit.

I will take a look at some of your posts and see where I might join in ...

Greetings to all. I am a 59-year-old, social-misfit brother, husband, father and grandfather who first heard about Asperger's Syndrome about five years ago, and I think I have it. I have taken some online tests I have found, and only one of my scores was even close to "normal". But, maybe there are ...
