I'm planning to give explanations to people I interact with on a regular basis on why it is I behave the way that I do, with AS/autism.

I have issues expressing my thoughts and emotions clearly, so I figured I'd ask around a bit, and see what methods work well for you all?

Maybe include something like this as a start:

'And so for me, taking a fair amount of alone time is healthy.'

"I'm not good at reading social situations."
"I may not be as emotionally expressive as most people."
"It can be difficult to tell you my feelings"
"I prefer logic and order to emotions"

I am an anomaly. Diagnosed with borderline,"tentative" Aspergers at 7 as the school board required me to have a label in order to receive special education services. I did not fit criteria for ASD but that was the closest label that fit my behaviour at the time.

My longtime psychiatrist has confirmed that I do not qualify for an ASD diagnosis (but have traits & OCD-like traits).

Mostly keeping a distance from ASD-related things (including WP).
