Hi all! I'm 35 years old and am recently aware that I've been an Aspie my entire life. It's a relief to know behaviors that people find strange about me are typical for our group.

I'm married, have two small kids, and have a good job. I'm lucky that my main interest was computers and technology growing up: I fondly recall teaching myself how to program all night from a huge tome on a case-less, shoddy machine I assembled from cheap parts... all before using the internet.

I've gone through a patch of video gaming and recently gave that up. While theorycrafting and spreadsheets are fun (yay Eve Online), my health and relationships are suffering. I'm also not a big fan of the often cruel community in gaming, typically opting to play MMOs alone.

In the void, I've been dabbling in evolutionary biology and psychology. I came across some information about Asperger's. Took the Asperger's Adult Assessment (AAA) test and scored high, and felt like the questions were really me.

Well, now I'm home, so hi!

Welcome to Wrong Planet.

It is great to find out there are others that are like us and that there is an explanation for the way we are.

We have been getting a few new members from New York City and surrounding areas lately in addition to some us who have been here.
