Are you an aunt or an uncle?

I always feel like you're conducting some kind of survey with your questions.
What to eventually ascertain, I don't know.
Are you with the autism branch of the CIA, perhaps?

I am not. To the best of my knowledge, my brother (my only sibling, two years younger than me) doesn't even have a girlfriend (though he's been at college most of the time for the past few years, so that could have changed without me knowing).

For the record, I've never had a boyfriend - I'm absolutely not judging :)

I have a quilt of labels. I had a language disorder and a speech disorder. Then communication disorder NOS. My other diagnoses have been Language Processing disorder, dyspraxia, SPD, OCD, ADD, Asperger’s, anxiety disorder, adjustment disorder, anorexia nervosa. My mom’s labels of me are: eating disorder, anorexia, social anxiety, PTSD, just being sensitive and having the victim complex when I was a kid. And of course she says I’m normal and says the only thing I had as a child was language. Huh? I must have been a shitty person then and maybe a difficult child I was who had to be labeled because of incompetent school staff and mean kids who didn’t accept differences and because I was trying to be “normal.” :/

Yes, I am an aunt. I have 10 nieces and nephews (5 boys / 5 girls, plus 2 step-nieces). I'm also a great-aunt, of 7 (I THINK - I may have forgotten one - 3 girls and 4 boys).

I keep thinking this too!! !! !

NewTime's questions all seem like he's building a "profile" on people! One by one, these questions could actually form quite a lot of information on a person.
