I consider myself normal because none of my hobbies are stuff a abnormal person does. I think lots of people enjoy video games, music, makeup, clothes shopping, stuffed animals, coloring and reading. I think abnormal is not knowing how to act in public and certain situations.

I figured out I was different in grade school, though I don't remember exactly what grade it was.

Same here. I remember from 3rd grade to 6th grade, kids were always making fun of me, calling me names and excluding me from activities and I never knew why. I also got pulled out of the room to take tests, go to OT, reading support, math support and speech while most of the other kids stayed in the room. I think it was by 5th or 6th grade that I started to figure out that I was different and weird compared to everyone else which didn't sit well with me. Once I even started crying saying that I had "too many problems" and that I was "mental" compared to others. I said those things because my feelings were hurt from being bullied a lot in school which eventually led to me becoming a very shy, quiet, timid and withdrawn person with low self-esteem in junior high and beyond. Before junior high, I wasn't shy and it felt a little easier to talk to people.
