I'm fully convinced I'm on the spectrum :) You sound pretty sure to me. So self diagnosed Off Topic but related. I do not think the issue is you but the options we are given. The options given currently are to open ended and vague, and they do not take into account the DSM 5. I am hoping that when ...

I think it might be either waiting to be sure or that you are so overwhelmed that you shut down for a period so your emotions can process it. When I was told "I have no trouble diagnosing you as having Aspergers" I was numb. It hit me like a lightning bolt (I literally felt like waves of electricity...

I needed the explanation because of I am the type of Aspie that needs to categorize things. I still feel bad and blame myself when I screw up but get over it quicker because I can now explain/understand why and what happened when before knowing I was on the spectrum I was dumbfounded or came to the ...

I most definitely have this problem. And it has gotten worse with age. Instead of doing what I should be doing but am not particularly interested in my mind is thinking about what I am interested in. It is executive function and special interest. Special interests are defined as an interest that int...

I am the OP of this thread and I agree it is not clear cut as to what it is and how widespread it is. But the belief of widespread Aspie Wanabees and as Waterfalls was getting at the related belief of overdiagnoses is being used to beat us down. I have demonstrated it is one reason the diagnoses doe...

I felt great joy and relief in knowing there was an explanation for why things happened they way they did. That explanation was that I have been an Aspie my whole life and so have you. We just did not know about it. As you post here will read about a traits and experiences that happened to other peo...

I consider myself Aspie-Autistic. I can say I am aspie and that fits me, I can say I am autistic and that fits me also. The concept is similar to being Jewish-American or Italian-American. There are certain characteristics I have that are different then Kanners-Autisim but there are more similaritie...

The Kinks are one of my favourite bands, because they've recorded a lot of songs about London and England. They've also recorded the most gender bender songs out of all of the Classic Rock bands. I also have happy memories of hearing a lot of their songs on the radio including a cornucopia of their...

At the moment: Buzzcocks and 'family' (so Magazine and Pete Shelley solo - but I haven't got into Flag of Convenience/Steve Diggle yet.) They basically started the Manchester music scene proper. And I think they are underrated compared to The Smiths. Pete Shelley is much cooler than Morrissey. He's...

One thing I have noticed in the media and on TV is whenever AS is brought up, they always mention the social deficits, nothing else like hank on Parenthood for example when he discovers he may have it and all he mentions is social issues, nothing else. It was the same with Susan Boyle too when she ...
