Hello everyone, I just signed up. I'm Rae, and I've been professionally diagnosed with ASD but only recently was told my diagnosis and found this site.
I hope to make some new friends and vent! I'm super friendly and nice, so please talk to me.
What is your name and what are you like? What are you diagnosed with?
:mrgreen:

Hello, I'm Mike. I was diagnosed at age 14, am 24 now and have been untreated since then. I dislike eye contact and dislike the touch of humans; I enjoy the touch of animals, specifically: dogs, cats, and horses/ponies.

Welcome to Wrong Planet!

I was diagnosed with "regular" Autism when I was 4, but re-diagnosed with Aspergers when I was 13.

I was diagnosed with Asperger's when I was 12 or so, and before that I was diagnosed with ADHD, but the symptoms of that were then reconsidered to be an expression of my Asperger's. Between now and then, I have suffered from depression, social anxiety, avoidant personality disorder and a light form of PTSD. I never had an official diagnoses for any of those, but I highly doubt that the emotional and psychological issues that I suffered in my teenage years were anything else. Anyways, I once considered getting a re-diagnosis a year ago but it was only for the sake of being able to have an adult diagnosis for a program I could be administered to at a college I'm not enrolled in anymore. Although my social skills, among other things, have improved greatly since my childhood, I still feel that I have Asperger's. I am obsessed with learning about things and finding patterns, I constantly fiddle with random doodads (clicking pens, snapping metal buttons together, twisting the knobs on the equipment in my school's lab, etc), and I have obsessive tendencies with all of my interests and hobbies. Those are hardly the only things that characterize how I am not quite like other people, but I'd rather not be unnecessarily superfluous for what should be simple introduction thread reply.
