Hello,

I thought I would take this time to introduce myself.

My name is Daniel, I am in my 30's, and I live in Canada. I have been noticing that I have signs of autism and my family doctor thinks that there is a great chance I am on the spectrum.

My favourite things to do are reading, watching TV, going for walks, and spending time with my wife.

I have joined this website in hopes of making new friends, and also learning more about being on the spectrum.

Thank you!

Welcome to Wrong Planet.

There are test available on line that can give you a quick analysis of whether you have these traits. It is not an official diagnosis but it is quick and fairly accurate. So you might try some of these tests.

If you ask around, I am sure that others can point you in the right direction. Take a few of these tests and see how you score.

Double Retired wrote on a different thread:

P.S. If you're looking for additional support for your self-diagnosis perhaps try these:
- Autism-Spectrum Quotient Test (AQ)
- Aspie Quiz
Registration is not required!
But, no diagnosis is required to be on WP, just a polite interest in the topic.
