I go onto these forums and I still don't do much talking. I see many other aspies talking about heaps of stuff I just don't seem to have it in me...

I'm the same way. I read what other's are posting and can relate to other's but I don't post much. I'd rather read and know I'm not alone. 8)

Same here unless something really touches me, it takes me so long to put my thoughts into words & my memory sucks big time unless it's for images so there is nothing really in my head a lot of the time to be able to say, I wonder if I have an FASD though.

I lurked here for a few weeks before I actually started posting with any regularity.

It's okay. I didn't really start to post a whole lot until I explored the forums a little bit. I don't know if you might, but you might start posting a little more once you settle a little bit. :)

In my early days on WP, I found that the more I posted, the better my written communication skills got. It was a benefit of posting, and I'd like to think I learned something.

Hi Joel,
I read a lot more than I post. However much you want to post is fine.
I don't know if I've even ventured into every forum yet, and I've been here for almost 3 years.

Not the same thing exactly, but this post made me wonder if some of the people posting in this thread are ones that were non-verbal in their youngest years/had the trait of delayed speech until they were a few-several years old. *shrug* just wondering if you're among the can't-be-bothered-to-talk Aspies, just for curiosity's sake.

One of my uncles was like that as a child, and to a lesser extent one of my cousin's kids, and to a greater extent one of my AS friends. Like all of our traits, they just are what they are - I'm just curious if there's any correlation between that one back then and your current lack of feeling like talking/typing etc.
