What is your first name? Carl

Age: 62

Location: Long Island, NY

Hobbies and Interests: Electric Vehicles, Climate change activism, Sailing, Running, Hiking, Computers and Geocaching.

Why are you here? To connect with my tribe

When were you diagnosed?(skip if you don't have a disorder): Self diagnosed in the late 1970s while reading about Asperger's. Only recently started being open about it.

Favorite subjects: Math, science, art., engineering

Year/Grade: Have MS in Electrical Engineering, BS in Electrical/Computer Engineering.

Favorite music: Classical

Books: Not a great reader due to vision problems. I have been almost continuous been listening to audio books, mainly while commuting, for like 30 years. Almost all are non-fiction but varied from humor to science. NeuroTribes helped get me to come out with my ASD.

TV shows/Movies: Not so much with richness of the internet these days. YouTube videos on whatever subject I'm studying at the time.

Instrument: Not much talent here

Do you like sports? I know this question really means "Do you like spectator sports". I am not a fan of any team and find it quite boring. This has been a major source of alienation for me.

Family: Had both parents, brother and sister, both older. Father died when I was 14. Only my mother showed signs of ND. My father was an alcoholic. Like I needed that to further mess with my personality :?. I have been married for 20 years and have 2 teen age daughters. One diagnosed ASD-1 one year ago.

Clothing: I largely avoid wool. Wool sweaters as a young child was torture.

How did you find this website? Goggle search while looking for local support groups.

Job: Electronics Engineer

Plans for the future? Retirement from a job that I no longer love. I just have to come up with a plan of what to do next.

Any comments? Been on here awhile now. Enjoying connecting with the tribe. Learning a lot about the range of ASD experiences. Hope I'll be able to share some wisdom too.

Instrument: Every few years I try and learn Fireflies by Owl City on the keyboard only to realize (yet again) that my hands are too small to reach all the keys I need to

Do you like sports?: No but I like to work out

Family: No thanks I’m good

Clothing: I love fashion! My style is all over the place because I always am trying new things.

How did you find this website?: was looking for answers to an autistic problem
