I've been lurking here a long time, but I figure it's finally time to come out of the shadows. I've not yet gone about getting a diagnoses for Asperger's but to me its kinda obvious. Medicore social skills, not being able to make eye contact, obsessive(I do mean that) interests, really no close friends, somewhat of a geek, and texture issues with clothing. I got bullied a lot in school and have in the work place as well, although not so much anymore.

I have read a lot of things on here and have caught myself nodding in agreement. An Ex of mine, pointed out that I might be autistic but I sort of blew it off. Years later, for a time, I had co-worker that was open about his Asperger's diagnoses. I saw a lot of myself in him and the light bulb went off.

It answers a lot of questions but at the same time I am kind of bitter about the whole thing. I feel so many years have been robbed from me. I think of the stupid things I did and said when I was younger and I still feel ashamed and embarrassed to this day.

So, I thought I would create an account and give this place a shot. Thanks.

Welcome to the club, mate.
