I'm new here 26, and after reading a texbook about Human growth and child developement I have become familiar with the term aspergers. The reason I'm here is because from the traits of people with aspergers, it seems like I have some of the traits, but I'm not sure if it's just who I am. I was never know as the sociol type in high school, in elementary school I was alright and socialising was never a problem and I know during the highschool years that a lot of people experience being shy and feeling like they don't belong because of hormone changes during that period, but for me from middle school onwards I seem to try avoid being social, and when I am it's when I've gotten really comfartable with the people I'm around and become a pretty likeable and funny person.

Being an adult now I've never heard of aspergers until this year. The trait of being obsessed with a certain interest I can relate to because I love cars, if you start talking about cars I'll jump right in, this breaks the ice for me if I don't know someone and they mention anything about car problems or anything about cars. I have always like cars since I was about 3 or 4. I'm always on car forums, I pretty much knew everything about my last car and know everything about my current and love always googling or saving information about my car. If something catches my interest I research it for a long time. I have few freinds and I don't mind being at home. A lot of my weekends are spent on the computer either playing games or looking up random stuff that interest me.

I've been told that I'm the most closed person in that I don't express how I feel and like to keep my emotions in, even though on the inside I do have emotion. If I really hurt emotionally inside I will show it though. The only medication I've ever taken was lexapro junior year high school, that was after I told my parents that I felt like I had anxiety and felt nearvous about a lot of things. I feel real akward around others I don't know well and sometimes feel like I'm being watched closely, even though I tell myself that it's just in my head which is true most of the time.

Sorry if it's all typed all out of order, just trying to understan myself better thats all.

It's fine to feel out of order.

I'm sure you'll feel more sure about yourself over time. I know other communities like this have helped me out a lot, even if I ended up not being the identity that created the community.

No, but I did struggle with my sexual identity for a while.

Ok I dont mean to sound unsensative when I said issues if anyone was wondering, I guess I meant to put it as everyones ways of seeing things is more appropriate.
