The part where it she was a totally different before a an extreme shattering event is a flag. Autism is a lifelong condition. But your brothers suicide (sorry to hear that) could easily worsen the symptoms, or make her co-morbid. And working with numbers could be an aspie job. I hope for her sake be...

Story gave me a big smile. On a little more serious note I find children do gravitate towered me and I love them. They accept me for who I am their cool, eccentric Uncle who lets them get away with things their parents can't. They say what they think with no filter and do what they want when the urg...

Danica, Welcome to Wrong Planet. One key to acceptance is understanding what our issues are and why they happen. The third paragraph tells me you seem to have identified what some of them are and you have started to take action by coming here which is a good start. What you described in the 2nd para...

Before I start I have posted versions this story a few times. There are a few additions and some rewording. Like others have said in so many words "What diagnosis?" Diagnoses was something that happened to me this summer just before my 56th birthday. Like Fnord I was born in 1957. In the 60s and mo...

I have been to support groups 4 or 5 times and after the meeting of an group for people over 50 we went out for dinner. It is a wide variety of people with different interests, problems, from the obviously affected to those who can pass as NT. It is after the meeting that I really saw the difference...

Sorry you had to learn a "social skill" the hard way. Most NT's in your situation would reply like you will the next time or say they had a previous engagement they can't get out of.

I hope you do better financially.

That seems unduly harsh. How would you regard someone who claimed to have a life-altering condition but never sought diagnosis? I think erring on the side of 'hypochondria' is the only sane response. That's not to say that some self-diagnosers DON'T have AS -- but again, why not get it official? fl...

I am not a professional so I can not diagnose you. Ask your parents if you were diagnosed as a baby. Positive results on one test may be indicative they you have Aspergers. If you were diagnosed as a baby that is another indicator. Being smart and having social difficulties alone is the public stere...
