Hi, I'm new here and I just wanted to introduce myself. My name is Amanda, I'm 19 years, and I have AS. Now I won't go into detail when it comes to life story, but I will admit this, I have always felt different than most other people. I've also spent a great deal of my life feeling that I really don't fit in anywhere. I've especially felt this way when I'm around people my own age. I'm starting to like my own age better (I especially couldn't stand them in middle school), but I still prefer older people. Perhaps this is a result of my upbringing, I was raised by older parents & spent a lot of time with them and for the most part I was raised like an only child because my siblings where all a lot older than me & weren't around much, or it could be because of AS. Anyway, I just wanted to ask a little about self-acceptance. When did you guys finally start to accept yourselfs for who you are? Or better yet when did you finally admit to yourself that you have AS? I've known about my AS for quite some time now, but for the longest time I wouldn't admit it. I would make up excusses and wanted to believe that I was just like everyone else, even though I knew deep down that I wasn't. I've nearly completed my first semester of college and I have become much more accepting of myself. Before I started college I wouldn't dare go into a discussion forum and tell anyone about my problems. However, I still don't feel the need to tell the whole world that I have AS, I am now more willing to admit it to myself. I don't know wheter it's just my age or the college environment, but this is how I feel now and it feels really good. :D

I've always felt that I was different, but I only really started to find out about ASD when my son was diagnosed with it about two years ago now. Since then I've realised I'm also on the spectrum. So yeah, I guess I was 26 or so when that happened.

i m here now

look dear amanda
i want to right pages and pages for you because i feel you

i passed the 80 % of your story and add that we are in the same age allthought i m older than you :wink:

so i can understand your feeling when you was feel that you are in an isolated island and others are in another world

because it was my feeling in a day

but me i was resist this feeling and realy i had a social situation like others
and i had a charism although it was verry dificult to resist yourself
i m respected by all people
yes ; i was lonely and sometimes sad because myself ask me: why you are different than other

and i had no answer

for that i went to a psychologe in 2006 i think it was september) with my mother (she is a great and wenderfull person) and she is like a friend for me

since the psychologue had not answer too
he tell me that i have just a stress
and he advice me to practice sport
and this advice made laugh because i m the champion of my province in swimming and kick boxing
and it made him marvel because the sportif generaly has not stress
he asked my mother in prvate and he tell her that this young man or boy has a secret
she tell him that he is the the beloved in my children
he is so compassionate and mature boy
he said : it what i want to say

after 2 years i still resist myself and i m active in society
between the first in my school
still respected

although i was avoid girls to dont break my heart because i feel the different
and i was search a girl like me althought i had not the description
because our case is a feeling and not just a description and i could not find her

ok i will not irritate you by my story

and now i m with a doctor ( you can say a psychiatre)

who told me that i have an asperger syndrome after 4 months of
"go and return"
in the last week that i have an AS

it is my story and i want from the depth of my heart that you are not irritate by this long story

if it is i m realy sorry but i want to call my feeling to some one who understand me

and sorry too about my bad english
but i will develop my english by courses

i will continue in the next page by your questions
how to do with our AS
and acceptence of ourself

so
be continued

Hi Amanda and welcome to the forum!

I think you're right. It's not necessary to tell anybody about the diagnosis if you're not ready to do so. :)
Actually you should accept some day that it's a part of you.
But it's better to keep in a good mood for your studies.
I wish you all the best! :)

we continue

so i told you that you feel that you are in an isolated island

so listen

if i give you an example of our boddies and sport

someone have naturally a condition fisical than others

so others must practice sport to get a good fisical condition

but after a hard work and a long time

this others can be better than who have a natural best fisical condition

it is like our story and case

the normal person (allthough i dont want to use this word "normal" but just to realise the example)

have a naturaly body-language and the same emotional view of the "not aspies" and focus on details and some difference that i m sure that you know it

no we must develop our skills
or generaly to delete or allmost delete this different between us and others

with this example of who have a high natural fisical condition and who have not
and who have a normal skills of comunication
and us who have not this skills

you can told yourself " me + communication skills = normal happy person )

and remember always the life after this life it make you accept yourself better

dear amanda
i want to tell more but in this last days i have grippe and i m so tired

so take care to yourself

and remember you have a friend here

and glad to meet you

and sorry about the "bla bla bla" it is the contrary of my demure personality

bye dear amanda with greeting :wink:
