I have been reading here for a bit, trying to identify with the people here… I have some questions. But that can come later.

I have an 8 year old son diagnosed with PDD nos, a 10 year old daughter who is full NT. A 13 year old step son who was also diagnosed PDD nos, but I think aspergers fits him better now as he has progressed beyond what we thought was possible at his age!! !

I am engaged to a wonderful woman who is a published author on the subject of aspergers and who is also a diagnosed Aspie.

She pointed out to me that I had many aspie traits, more so than she. I have been diagnosed with many things through my life. Every time I have gotten tested the results are different. Once was bipolar another was antisocial ect. ect. I read the DSM carefully on these and couldn’t imagine how they came up with those. I took every online test I could find ( don’t know how accurate they are ) but scored highest in my house of autistic people. 

I have been able to identify with so many people on these threds, seems like my stories. The more I read about aspergers, and read here, the more the last 39 years of my life seem to make sense. Maybe I am, I don’t know. I am going to try to get insurance and find a specialist. I just want to know for once and for all, is this the explanation for my abnormalities?

I like some of my traits; I could do without some. But I am content in my little world. Its going outside my world I don’t like and find hard or near impossible to do sometimes…
