I apologize for leaving out everything I might have mentioned elsewhere. Before I finally self diagnosed I remember: Not having any friends as a child, always rejection, rejection, rejection if it wasn't being bullied or beat up. And not knowing why. Always chosen last for baseball (etc.) and not be...

This is one of the most difficult aspects of having AS for me. Not having been diagnosed for very long, I look back and think about the crap this part of my being has caused. It ‘helped’ with the breakdown of my marriage as my ex-wife could never get her head around the fact I didn’t want to go out...

I'm wondering if many here, like myself, have self diagnosed? After I became convinced of my deep introversion it seemed as though I had only part of the answers to my life's twists and turns. Until I recollected a day in my past when I was 9 1/2: ... as I walked down a sunny sidewalk as I always di...

Whenever I go out (by out I mean to place other than my house), I feel very drained and tired when I get back. I took my fiancee to the movies and some other place early this week and today I went to a few stores with my mother. Both days, I come back feeling lousy. The reason I wonder if this is a...

Personally I have always loved religion since I was a young child and have studied various religions all my life. Religion and social science are my two great passions, the particular interest being how religions symbolism (or the use of language in general) can facilitate the the transformation of...

I was raised in a strict Roman Catholic family; I have an aunt that is a nun, and my parents took us to church every Sunday. My maternal grandmother had converted to Catholicism so was a very passionate catholic, and would go to mass every day when possible. I grew disenchanted with the church when...

I was 69 before self-diagnosing after nailing the "deeply introverted" part a year earlier. In the '40s and '50s when I grew up no one had heard of AS so they just had you stand in a corner or off to one side; things are much better now. Managed to survive thanks to a miracle...... I met my wife whe...

I was hanging out over at Zen Forum International and someone from WP stopped in for a while so I decided to return the favor. I've viewed this forum a little in the past and thought it looked good and now I find it even busier than before. I'm now 70 and just self diagnosed about two years ago; wha...
