Age: 37

Location: Canada

Current perseverations: Many silly vocalizations, funny (at least to me) accents and random content. I can control it and be quiet if I concentrate really hard.

When did you discover AS? I heard about it when I was a kid, then forgot all about it and was diagnosed in 2014

Do you have other psych diagnoses? No

Do you have a degree? No

Kids? No

Favorite music, other than NIN : This is such a hard one cause music is my obsession. My favourite genre is fusion. I listen to a lot of indie pop/synthy stuff but also neoclassical/darkwave, experimental electronic and rock. I used to listen to NIN a lot. If anyone wants to talk music, hmu.

Job? No

Relationship with significant other, past or present? Romance was complicated and is in the past. I am happier single.

I used to hang out here a LOT. I’m MsTriste (started this thread). It’s been so long I have no idea what my password might have been, nor do I really want to take up that identity again.

Here because I need help with dealing with the world.

What is your first name? Gen will do. Nickname Ginger

Age: 53

Location: Southwest

Current perseverations: Minecraft, Geneaology, Gaming, RE-practicing former musical skills, Editing&co translating Chinese Light Novels, Drawing, bringing my son closer to skill for age. Not necessarily in order of time spent in focus.

When did you discover AS? Dad did but it was seen in our family already as a DX even back then in the 60s. So nice to be in monied families back then when tackling "rare" conditions. I was 3 was official first DX in Europe, second DX was that I was "cured" after therapy when I was 6 (because I became excellent 'Mimic" ..lol.. those tricksy humans won't know I'm different!). My last therapy session was at age 6 and a half.

Do you have other psych diagnoses? Hmm is Dyslexia considered psychological nowdays? I have had a previous DX of PTSD too.

Do you have a degree? Nope, a few credits short, then life happened.

Kids? Yep...3. all born after I was 30.

Favorite music, other than NIN :lol: Eclectic in a genre . but as DJ I play house and custom remix most.

Job? Presently a NEET

Relationship with significant other, past or present? Have a literal hand count of Exs. Ex husband was a traumatic experience. Latest guy is one that -I- actually picked! Instead of going with flow of a pursuer. Going strong as couple since summer 2012 and engaged in 2013. But we are rarely on same continent. It may go south after we get married.

Plans for the future? REjoin the workforce. Possibly go back to school to learn a skill viable for my health, age an interests. Pay off arrears stacked from older kids. Gain full custody of minor child in the house. get married, move to Poland, work towards retirement. Live mellow drama free life (at least preventable drama)

Anything else you feel is pertinent: I seem to have had some social and life skill regression in recent years. I may need to relearn Humanese again.

When did you discover AS? I was 9. My parents told me about it

Do you have other psych diagnoses? No but I might. I have other struggles with my mood. My parents want me to get it checked out.

Anything else you feel is pertinent: I have an identical twin, that's pretty cool.
