I was 17, so about 4-5 years ago. Wasn't secure about it until 2 years ago though. :/

On an unrelated note: I approve of IdahoRose's avatar.

I was around 37 or 38 when I first heard of AS, but I had been evaluated several times as a child for "classic" autism.

I have never been diagnosed with AS. I have been diagnosed with social anxiety but I think I might have AS. My father who is diagnosed with Bipolar disorder has many traits of AS himself. I heard sometimes it goes undiagnosed. I not sure though I am not a doctor.
