Hobbies and Interests: There are stuff I'm NOT interested in, like cruelty, religion, bad things and stuff. Anything else I'm game.

Why are you here? Asperger spectrum diagnosed, until now been functioning but picked up PTSD and Burnout(/brain damage in short term and work memory) on the way and are now next to useless

When were you diagnosed?(skip if you don't have a disorder):2021

Favorite subjects: Humans, Humanity, Ethics, Cosmology, Biology, Standard model (1st gen not so much 2nd and 3rd gen afaik we're all made of the stuff from 1st gen), wave duality, Music (almost everything) and literature, History, Geology, errm it would frankly be easier to list what I'm not interested in.

Year/Grade: Its complicated. I was 26 when I finished schooling with Grade A in Electronic fields Analog and Digital at pre university level.

Favorite music: Seriously .... everything except when it stop being music and becomes noise. Even then there are sometimes music. Combine harvesters can have a really grym beat

Books: umm lets do some favourite authors: Douglas Noel Adams, JRRTolkien, Terry Pratchett, Isac Asimov, ArthurC Clarke, Frank Herbert, Charles Stross, Karsten Alnæs, John Irving, Stephen Hawking, eksetera (hmm awfully male'ish, well I like best female singers by far so I guess it balance out some)

TV shows/Movies: Red Dwarf, Into the Universe, Spartakus and the Sun Beneath the Sea, everything published under Pixar and Dreamworks brands, Oblivion, Contact, Koe no Katachi (A Silent Voice), everything with David Attenborough,

Web-stuff: Ri channel, the portal, 60symbols, Sabine Hossenfelder, into the impossible, whatever I track down on youtube of lectures given by PhD

Instrument: Percussion, B tuba, piano, singing, but that's awfully many years ago

Do you like sports? Walking anywhere gawking around at nature, mountain bike, will start knife throwing and bow shooting soon, at -20 its just to bl*** cold

Family: 3 kids, single, 2 brothers

Clothing: mostly stubbies and t-shirt, a cap and a hair band, all preferably clean and without to many holes, hoodie if its cold, colder than that (-10 deg C) we talk wool and stuff

How did you find this website? Google

Job: Non, to burned out, Doc said I had limited ability to retrain or re-educate as long as my burnout state is this strong

Plans for the future? I kind of hope to study and work again, that's what I'm shooting for.

Any comments? Durr, dunno, I guess if anyone want to know more they can PM

What is your first name? Will

Age: 27

Location: East Coast VA

Hobbies and Interests: engines, compressors, analog electronics, antique machinery, power generation, alternative fuels, music, nature and wildlife, naval architecture, geometry, and anything maritime related

Why are you here? I had no inkling I was on the spectrum until about 5 days ago, now it feels like the lifelong jigsaw puzzle I feel like I've been working on my whole life is looking like a picture. It is a load off my back to find out I'm not so alone in the feelings and difficulties I've had throughout life

Instrument: played the tuba in high school, would love to learn the banjo someday

Do you like sports? College basketball, hockey, motocross, auto racing

Family: both parents and a younger brother. Dad may possibly be on the spectrum to a degree, he believes his father may have been too, and his fathers mother lived most of her life in a home for mentally handicapped folks, though my dad remembers her as very normal and believes she was a casualty of the times.

Clothing: don't wear anything I'm scared to get dirty, formal attire is a collared shirt of some sort, and stain-free pants

How did you find this website? It was mentioned in an article I was reading about Asperger's and ASD

Job: deckhand on a cutterhead suction dredge

Plans for the future? Climb the ladder where I'm at, while saving up enough money to go in business for myself one day. I'm full of ideas

Any comments? Having gone 27 years in life knowing I don't quite run on the same frequency as everyone around me but not understanding why made for some dark times throughout life. Happy to be here
