Hi, I'm new to the forum and thought I'd say hello.

I am not sure, but I suspect I have Aspergers / ASD. I'm in my early 30s and until I got married and shared my life with someone I never suspected I was on the spectrum. My brother (15 years younger) is visibly autistic and I felt nothing like him. I just thought I was extremely introverted, highly sensitive and socially anxious all my life.

My wife, who is a mental health professional, has been telling me for about a year that she thinks I'm on the spectrum. It was only when I total withdrew at Christmas that I began to research it and it does feel like something that could be true.

I scored 32 on the AQ test and 133 on the Aspie test. But then, I also always score highly on introversion, HSP, social anxiety and depression tests so I'm really confused.

But hi!
